Video: Exporting audio and video from Final Cut Pro 7

In this movie, you'll see us working on a Final Cut Pro7 project. This Final Cut Pro project file, is not included in the exercise files for this course. But we're showing it here as a demonstration of the complete Final Cut Pro to LogicPro workflow and back. If you own Final Cut Pro 7 software, you're welcome to open up any Final Cut Pro 7 project and follow along with these steps. As I also suggested in the What You Should Know Before Watching This Course video, it isn't essential you have Final Cut Pro 7 to take advantage of the concepts presented in this course. So here in our desktop, we have our castles_fcp folder. And inside there, we have a spot for our exports called toaudio. And in those folders, we have a spot for our audio, and a spot for our video. Back over in Final Cut, we've got our sequence. We're just going to give it a quick listen to make sure it's all in sync.

Author Scott Hirsch frames the lessons in a way that appeals to filmmakers of all levels, as well as professional and amateur audio mixers. He starts with exporting your tracks from Final Cut Pro and taking advantage of the film and video templates in Logic Pro, which makes project setup a snap. Then discover how to consolidate and edit dialog, fix noise problems and background hum, and add special effects. Finally, explore how to use automation and EQ to enhance and match your final tracks to the picture.

  • Setting up your project

Exporting audio and video from Final Cut Pro 7

In this movie, you'll see us working on a Final Cut Pro7 project. This Final Cut Pro project file, is not included in the exercise files for this course. But we're showing it here as a demonstration of the complete Final Cut Pro to LogicPro workflow and back. If you own Final Cut Pro 7 software, you're welcome to open up any Final Cut Pro 7 project and follow along with these steps. As I also suggested in the What You Should Know Before Watching This Course video, it isn't essential you have Final Cut Pro 7 to take advantage of the concepts presented in this course. So here in our desktop, we have our castles_fcp folder. And inside there, we have a spot for our exports called toaudio. And in those folders, we have a spot for our audio, and a spot for our video. Back over in Final Cut, we've got our sequence. We're just going to give it a quick listen to make sure it's all in sync.

>> But the company is in free-fall, and you want to take risk again. It's a creative approach. >> All right, that looks pretty good. So first, we're going to export our OMF, that we'll be sending to Logic. We'll go to File > Export, Audio to OMF. And here we've got a couple of options. We want to leave our sample rate and our bit depth the same, but our handle length will change. In this case you want to do ten second handles, and then make sure you include cross fade transitions, levels. But let's leave pan unchecked, and what the handle is, it just gives you a little bit of heads and tails when the files get imported into Logic. So we'll click OK, and we'll choose castles_fcp, to audio, audio. Here's where we'll send our omf.

We'll just double-check, and there's our OMF. So back in Final Cut, we'll export our video. And to do that, we'll just go to Export > Quick-Time movie. Or the shortcut command for this is Cmd+E. And make sure our video folder is selected, and under include we want to do video and audio. Make sure that make self-contained movie is checked, and we'll leave the setting at current settings. because we're going to use a third-party program, such as Compressor, or Adobe Media Encoder to compress this down to a smaller file size.

We'll hit Save and we'll sit here for another four minutes. All right, so back to our desktop and inside our video folder, we have our movie and we'll just give that a quick double check. That looks pretty good and now once we get this compressed to a smaller file size, we'll be ready to import it into LogicPro to get to work on our sound.
