Track is an audio file of a musical composition. Right? So temporary tracks (or temp tracks in our lingo) is when we use a piece of music temporarily while producing a film. Don’t go all ‘well, duh’ on me. Let me elaborate. That means that the director, the editor(s) and other staff want to have a vague idea of a scene by adding an existing music composition instead of the one they will actually be using. Temp tracks are used kinda like a notepad. Music tracks are added to a part of the video in order to indicate that there needs to be something, or more specifically, what kind of emotion the music needs to project. But, perhaps, the most important role of temp tracks is to show the composer what the director has in his/her mind, which becomes a vital part of the collaboration between the two, as both parties should start throwing ideas in and make decisions on how to proceed.
