With 15 plus years of touring and studio work under his belt Roy Vargas is no stranger to the audio world. As a player and engineer he has worked with a vast array of different artists in the studio and live.
Editing dialog to picture is complex. There’s a lot of interactivity, when audio and video sync in post-production, that makes it essential for you to master all the concepts and tools. That’s why we called upon experienced Pro Tools expert Roy Vargas to break down the process and show you everything you need to know as a professional dialog editor.
The course starts with a collection of tutorials that breakdown the anatomy of a post-production session. Roy explains the various kinds of sessions, tracks, file formats and organizational hierarchies that Pro Tools operators must know. Next, he shows you, from experience and by example, how a Pro Tools operator constructs and sets up a dialog-to-picture editing session. Then Roy dives into timecode, reference tones, sync pops, reel splitting and much more to assure that your session is built on solid ground.
From there you explore the tools and techniques he uses to edit, crossfade, clean, sync, time-stretch and fix any kind of audio situation you might come across in post-production. By the time you finish this 48-tutorial course, you will "own" all the tools, techniques and, most importantly, the confidence to run your own Pro Tools post-production dialog editing sessions!
This course was produced in a previous version of Pro Tools. All of the content is relevant for the current version.

Very good instructor. He gave very detailed descriptions of this software. I learned a lot.

Course is really good...would have been much better and clearer if workflow was explained with the same demo session so that we find the difference between the unprocessed and processed version of the session.

This course works well on setting the ground needed to do dialogue editing. The first half takes up the pre-preparation which really is a necessity. The second half on how to actually work with the dialogue in waveforms is probably the most comprehensive I have seen. It consolidated almost 2 years of school I went to into a four hour course. It's that good!
