In the Cinema Sound Education, we normally discourage the use of on-clip audio plugins. It can make for a very cumbersome and time consuming mix process. After all, if the client wants to make a global change to a host of dialog clips, erasing and repasting updated parameters is the only course. Whereas, on a channel based mixing protocol, merely updating the settings of the channel will change all of the dialog on that track. Clip audio plugins aren’t something we recommend using.
But if you ARE going to use them – especially if you’re having to use the failed attempts of Apple to implement audio mixing in Final Cut Pro X, then it’s important to have the best sounding and most flexible plugins available. They should have more than the basic plugin choices for the professional editor/mixer who needs to use the same plugins that are available in the channel configuration as are in the clip implementation.
In this video, Mark takes us through a blow-by-blow contrast and comparison of the clip audio plugins in both of these venerable NLEs and shows us which one is the winner for most effective and efficient to use in Post Production.
