As video professionals we are always looking for ways to take our videos to the next level. One way to add subtle but effective polish to our videos is Sound FX. Sound FX can add realism to a scene, make a transition pop, or create emotional cues. Sometimes you need sound FX because the video camera didn’t pick up the original sound.
