Hi, Steve H here. I'd like to tell you about this tutorial, Logic's Music-for-Picture Toolbox!

Film/video scoring is a skill that many composers need to master if they want to be competitive in this crazy world of music!

Every day, all around the world, there are thousands of cable TV and internet channels producing tons of video content that ALL need music and sound. However, before you can dig in and start composing for picture there are concepts you've got to understand and tools you need to know how to use.

In this second tutorial of my Logic's ToolBox series, I demystify the relationship of time, tempo, and frame rates. I thoroughly explain SMPTE and video synchronization. I show you how to beat map "Hit" points and make all your beats line up with the picture. I reveal the best ways to import the video's audio into Logic's arrange page without worrying about losing synchronization. Even better, I share many of my film scoring "secrets" and take you on a compositional journey showing how I dream up my musical scores and turn them into final TV-ready productions... and that's just the beginning!

As a bonus, I'm Including a free QT movie complete with visual time code for you to sync and compose to and some of my Logic project files to explore!

You know, I've been scoring to video for most of my musical life including many award winning films and TV series and it brings me great pleasure to share my Music-for-Picture knowledge my macProVideo friends!

So if you're new to film scoring this tutorial will start you on your way to a whole new dimension in your career. If you're a professional film scorer this tutorial will give you some technical tips and tricks to help you perfect your skills.
