Synchronizing the Title and Clock Clips and Adding the Beep


Synchronizing the Title and Clock Clips and Adding the "Beep"

To give the clock more credibility (and to more exactly match the clock on the TV show), we're going to add a sinister "beep, beep, beep" as the time changes on our clock. We'll be using a sound effect file called 24clock.wav, placing a copy of it at the beginning of each of the "clock" title clips. But first, we need all of our title clips to be on the same video track.

Move the Clock Clips to the Video 1 Track

Press and hold the Shift key on your keyboard.

Click each of the "clock" clips on the Video 2 track: Title 02, 56, 57, 58. 59, and 8:00.

Drag the clips so that they sit in a row, right next to the opening text clip, Title 01, on the Video 1 track. These tracks will now all play in sequence.

Add a Beep Each Time the Clock Changes

From the Available Media view of the Media panel, drag the 24clock.wav clip onto the Audio 1 track on the Timeline so that it lines up with the Title 02 clip on the Video 1 track.

Timesaver

Scrub the CTI so that it lines up with the head of the video clip and drag the 24clock.wav file and line it up to the CTI.

Drag the 24clock.wav clip onto the Audio 1 track again, so that it lines up with the 56 clip on the Video 1 track.

Repeat this procedure until all of the "clock" clips have an associated 24clock.wav clip on the Audio 1 track, as shown in the illustration.
