Default Cross Fading

Hi All,

New to editing in PT. I have PT 9.0 (LE). I'm getting ready to go to mixing and was told I should cross fade all of the audio splices where corrections and cuts were made to ensure there are no audible pops or clicks. Some of my tracks were consolidated before this, and sure enough there are pops and clicks on some of them.

I really am reaching out to the community for help on 2 topics:

1. Should I re-record the tracks that have been consolidated or is it easier to cross fade if I cut the audio on the click or pop?

2. How exactly is the cross fade done. I've seen several different examples but they just cross faded out and not on a split/insterted peice of audio goodness.

Thanks in advance! Feel free to point me to youtube vids or any resource you found useful in your audio adventures :)

1-I would draw the pops and clicks out with the pencil tool.
2-crassfades are made by, highlight across the area where you want the crossfade, and hit Ctrl-F(or is it ALt-F)?

Right the first time Ctrl+F (or is it?).

I really love the "Smart Tool" feature, I think you hit F6+F7 to turn it on, but the cross fades are easy to create. Hover near the bottom of the edit and the tool becomes a crossfade tool. Just click & drag for the width of the crossfade you want.

Use a-z mode and just hit "f".

Thanks guys, PT seems to make most things easy, it's just buried somewhere and someone pointing a finger sure makes your search a lot less harrowing - Thanks!
