This is especially geared towards anybody who has done a lot of work on films with an M&E requirement, but really everyone in general. When editing Foley, do you tend to cut things very tight, or do you do it almost like dial editing where you fill between? So, an example might be if I had one footstep in a walk-by that I decided needed to be nudged over 5 or 6 frames. Obviously, if I cut and move that over I've got a hole. Would you put fill in that hole (as though editing dialogue)?
I've recently gotten some Foley that I've had to do a fair amount of Frankenstein-ing to get it to work. Rather than take the time to meticulously fill between everything, so that each set of steps is one long region, I've been finding ways to use some of the tail & fill at the end of a step, with a fade, to bring it out fairly seamlessly. Hopefully you're able to imagine what it is I'm talking about.
