Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Everything you want to know about Video in Logic I learned something from every single video in this course. He mentions changes in 10.1, but everything is still relevant in 10.5. He even give tips when the short-cut key commands are buggy, and when to assign your own. This video is geared towards the technical side of syncing audio with video, and keeping everything in sync as you edit—it's not about the creative side of making a video in logic.
