Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting out of Pro Tools and back into FCP, part of Audio Post Workflow with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x & Pro Tools.
- Once we've mixed and finished our project…to complete it we have two options.…We can either import a clean version of our final edit…without the time code burn and print our audio to that…or we can just bounce the audio out of Pro Tools…to a stereo file and re-import it to Final Cut Pro.…In this movie, I'll go over both methods.…Let's start with bouncing to the QuickTime movie.…I'll import a clean, no timecode version of the movie…without any audio.…Go to File, Import Video, and find the video.…
I have it here on my desktop.…There's no need to import the audio for this movie.…Once it's in Pro Tools, let's make the movie active.…Make sure you select the entire length of the piece…on any track to determine the in and out points.…And then we'll go to File, Bounce To QuickTime Movie.…We'll leave the settings at 48 kilohertz, interleaved…and we'll name it Final Mix.…And we'll save it to our desktop.…
Keep in mind, this process happens in real time.…So if you have a two-hour long movie,…you have to make sure you have two hours to do this.…
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.
