The final mixdown has 10 tracks:
- Rifle shots and Ricochets
- Sub Bass explosions
- Environmental fx
- First segment actions / foley mixdown
- Second segment actions / foley mixdown
- Additional fx
I started by doing all the footsteps, while easy enough, can get tedious after a while. Much like lip syncing. Then it's a matter of going back and doing all the effects for each element, like expolsions, shard effects, machinery, environmentals, etc.
There are 4 more action sequences to be soundtracked, but none as intense as the battle scene, which is why I wanted to get it out of the way first. A bunch of dramatic sequences, those are mostly environmental fx and footsteps / foley. So it's on to the next sequence ... get the sound done, and the voiceovers done, the last bit of music, credit roll, and the film will be ready.
