If you're a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The exercise files have been compressed to a ZIP file. Download and uncompress this file, and you'll see a folder called Exercise Files. I'm going to assume you've used Final Cut Pro X before, in which case you have two folders in your Movie folder of your Home Finder. One is called Final Cut Events and one is called Final Cut Projects. To import the content for this course, you want to copy the content of the two folders named the same thing from the exercise files into these two folders in your Movies folder on your Finder.

Transferring audio from Apple Final Cut Pro X to Avid Pro Tools and back can be a tricky endeavor when Final Cut Pro X doesn't support OMF transfers. But X2 Pro Audio Convert is a program that can make this exchange quick and easy. In this course, Scott Hirsch demonstrates how to transfer audio utilizing X2Pro Audio—an invaluable workflow designed to help optimize and finish the audio of your Final Cut Pro video project.. He imports the audio into Pro Tools and then demonstrates how to make a Pro Tools template for future transfer projects. The course also includes some key EQ and noise reduction techniques that can take your audio for video projects to the next level. The final chapters show how to mix down the audio and export it back to Final Cut Pro X.

Topics include:
  • Preparing the Final Cut Pro timeline for export
  • Exporting audio
  • Importing audio in Pro Tools
  • Choosing sources and assigning tracks
  • Adding sound effects and music
  • Enhancing the audio with crossfades and noise reduction
  • Exporting audio from Pro Tools
Subjects:
Audio + Music Video Audio for Video Post Production
Software:
Final Cut Pro Pro Tools

Using the exercise files

If you're a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The exercise files have been compressed to a ZIP file. Download and uncompress this file, and you'll see a folder called Exercise Files. I'm going to assume you've used Final Cut Pro X before, in which case you have two folders in your Movie folder of your Home Finder. One is called Final Cut Events and one is called Final Cut Projects. To import the content for this course, you want to copy the content of the two folders named the same thing from the exercise files into these two folders in your Movies folder on your Finder.

Don't replace the folders because you don't want to write over anything you might have already been working on in Final Cut Pro. Now when you launch Final Cut Pro, you'll have the LDC Initial Edit exercise project and the media should be online. As for the Pro Tools sessions, I included one master session folder called FARM Audio PT. In here, there are a bunch of Pro Tools 10 session files that correspond to the beginning and end of all appropriate chapters in this course. You'll also find the two external files we use in the course, acoustic song and Birds Morning.

You can double-click the Pro Tools session files to open them, or you can open them from the File menu in Pro Tools. As long as you copy this folder to your work hard drive and don't go moving any files or folders around, all the files should link up. The first time you open a session or if something gets moved, Pro Tools might ask you to re-link the files. In that case, tell Pro Tools to automatically find and re-link, and as long as the files are present on your drive, Pro Tools will be able to find them and bring them online.

If you're a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, and you don't have access to these online training materials, that's okay too. You can follow along with your own media. Let's get started.
