This Soundtrack Pro video tutorial covers two useful techniques for fixing dialogue used in documentaries or other productions. 1) Time stretching for dialogue will fit a bit of dialogue as needed within a scene, and 2) Matching voice levels between two or more dialogue clips will make one clip sound more like another. Both tasks are easy to do for anyone working within Final Cut Studio, and this tutorial will walk you through the two procedures.
