Extracting the audio files from the X2Pro .aaf file
- [Presenter] Now it's time to import audio data…into our project,…so I'll navigate to the AAF file,…so File, Import, AAF, going to go to here,…and this is where my double-A F is,…choose it and say Import.…So, where to put these files,…it's importing them,…and what it's done is added a bunch of tracks…on top of my template tracks,…so that's what I expected,…by the way, if you import an OMF,…all your tracks will go below your template tracks,…not above, so you know that.…
Well, now that the audio is in our session,…let's save our session;…Save As, we decided early on that we wouldn't do…the Package format, we'll do the folder format,…so that we have access to audio files later on,…so I'll call this inmabe Mix,…and I can put it in my Logic folder,…that sounds good.…I do want to copy the audio files in there,…I don't have anything else yet,…I'll have the movie file in a little while,…and let's say, Save,…and it's done.…

Award-winning sound designer Joe Godfrey has developed a system for handing off the dialog, music, and effects mix from a Final Cut Pro timeline to Logic Pro. Why Logic? Many of the tools the Final Cut editor is using began there, and Logic has great tools that can be applied to dialog, music, and effects, as well the final mix. There are some things you want to do—in the right order—and some common mistakes you want to avoid. This course covers them all. Learn how to import audio from Final Cut Pro X in Logic Pro X, fix any syncing issues, edit dialog to perfection, add special effects such as pitch shifting and automated EQ, enhance music, and bounce out the final mix, either as a composite track or stems that can be mastered separately.
