Join Michael Towe for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting to Logic Pro X via AAF, part of Final Cut Pro X & Logic Pro X: 1 Audio Post Workflow.
- [Instructor] In this section we're going to talk about…the proper and super efficient way…to hand off your project to sound.…It does require a third-party application.…That third-party application is called X2Pro Audio Convert.…It is available in the Mac App Store.…There is a basic and a pro version.…We're going to be using the pro version…because it gives us more features that we need.…Before we go through the process,…I want to explain some of the settings…in X2Pro that are relevant.…
In the Source section that's where we're going to…place our Final Cut XML file.…In the Destination section, this is where…we're going to output our AAF file.…In the Settings section, we have two possible settings.…The first is Reference WAV files in place.…If you're doing your Logic Pro session…on the same machine that you're editing in Final Cut…then you can reference those files that Final Cut…is already using, and use those in Logic Pro.…
In our case we're going to be handing off this AAF file…to a sound mixer, and he is going to be working…
