Audio analysis options

Final Cut Pro provides automatic analysis options that can fix common audio problems, analyze and group audio channels, and remove silent channels. You can analyze audio during import, or analyze video clips with audio issues in the Browser or in the Timeline.

Final Cut Pro provides these audio analysis options:

  • Analyze and fix audio problems: Analyzes the audio for hum, noise, and loudness. Final Cut Pro automatically fixes problems that are considered severe (marked in red) and flags problems that are considered moderate (marked in yellow). For more information, see Enhance audio.

  • Separate mono and group stereo audio: Audio channels are analyzed and grouped as dual mono or stereo, depending on the results of the analysis. Automatically corrected audio channels are marked as Autoselected. For more information about audio channels, see Configure audio channels.

  • Remove silent channels: Audio channels are analyzed, and silent channels are automatically removed. Clips that have had channels removed are marked as Autoselected. For more information about audio channels, see Configure audio channels.

When you drag a media file from the Finder to a Final Cut Pro event or the Timeline, the import begins automatically, without displaying a window of import options. You can set automatic import options in the Final Cut Pro Import preferences pane.
