Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing to Pro Tools, part of Audio Post Workflow with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x and Pro Tools.
- In this movie, we'll look at importing…and verifying sync with the video and audio elements…we exported from Final Cut Pro.…You can open the AAF file from within Pro Tools…by going to File, Open to chose the AAF file.…We'll select the one we exported to this desktop folder.…You can also double click the file if don't already…have Pro Tools open and it will open the file…and Pro Tools at the same time.…Pro Tools will pause in the dialog box…asking for session parameters.…The standard parameters for video are either…broadcast wave, BWF or AIFF, 16 bit,…48 kilohertz, so we'll stick with those.…
Next, Pro Tools will ask where…to save your Pro Tools session.…A Pro Tools session is a group of folders and files…that reside in one session folder.…For ease of use here, I'll put it on the desktop…and we'll name it Farmers Audio Mix.…You may want to think about putting your projects…on a separate work drive for better organization.…Next we'll see the Import Session Data dialog box.…This is how we manage all the parameters from the AAF file…
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.
