Backtiming a Clip In Final Cut Pro

Imagine that you have been working on a magazine style segment for a local news station that debuts some of the less traveled areas of your state, for a light news segment called 'On The Backroads.' You have built a beautiful segment complete with interviews, eye-catching cut-aways and some nice atmospheric music. Now, how do you end this masterpiece without it feeling like your piece just abruptly cuts off at the end. How about backtiming an audio clip to give a soft, natural ending to your piece?

Backtiming A Clip:

- Set the area where you want the music to start in the timeline by creating an in point and place your out point at the end of your sequence where the action stops.

- Load your audio clip into the viewer and set an out point at the end of your music clip.

- Make sure your tracks are patched properly so that you will only be editing into the audio track, then make your edit. Your music will end at the out point that you specified in the timeline and backtrack to the in point, giving you a natural ending.
