Real quick question:

What's the convention for abbreviating "Foley" in naming a track?


Thanks in advance.


We typically layout foley in two groups: FS (or Feet) and Props, with each group being between 8-16 tracks wide.

    Do you add a 3rd group of cloth or is this included in props? – Marco Lopez Feb 12 '11 at 8:17
  • @Marco, normally cloth is on its own track separate from FS and props. – Jay Jennings Feb 12 '11 at 18:34

we just spell it out FWIW. Foly1, Foly2, etc.

I typically use F or FOL as a general Abbreviation.

F_Steps - Self Explanatory F_Cloth - Also Self Explanatory F_Props or F_Inc for Foley Props or "Incedental" sounds like hand props or anything non-steps or cloth.

I just have 16 tracks simply called Foley 1 - 16. First 8 tracks feet, last 7 tracks spots, with the final track being cloth moves. I name the regions I record with abbreviations; FTS, MOVES etc.
