Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Completing the export, part of Audio Post Workflow with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x and Pro Tools.
- Now that we have our video prepped for export…with our 2-pop, tail pop, and time code burn,…in this movie we'll do the actual export…and XML translation.…Exporting the audio is easy.…Simply select the project and go to File, Export, XML.…This process shouldn't take long…since an XML is just a text document…containing all the parameters of the sequence.…Then, you'll export a copy of the video.…Go to Share, Export Media, and choose H.264…and video and audio.…
While we won't be working with this audio directly,…it's the temp mix from the original video edit…and it'll be useful in ProTools as a reference…and guide track as we work.…Choose a place for the file and let it render out a movie.…Name it Farm Vid Ref.…This'll take a little while since it actually has to…process the file and render the movie.…Next, we need to use a third-party application…called X2Pro Audio Convert.…X2Pro Audio Convert effectively translates…the XML file we just exported and makes an intermediary file…called an AAF, standing for Advanced Authoring Format.…
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x. Although the course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated the applicable movies by adding text overlays to guide you to existing changes. We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software. Please watch the "Using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course.
