media stems

Audio or video files that are usually exported separately for audio mixing or post-production, or to match specifications when delivering files to broadcast networks. For example, you may need to deliver a multitrack QuickTime file along with separate dialogue, music, and effects stems.

In Final Cut Pro, clips are automatically labeled with video or audio roles (Video, Titles, Dialogue, Music, or Effects), which makes it easier to export media stems. You can also create custom roles to export additional media stems.
