Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Why should you export to Pro Tools?, part of Audio Post Workflow with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x and Pro Tools.
- Why do we want to take our audio out of Final Cut Pro?…It has audio capabilities, right?…It's a perfectly valid question.…In this movie I'll outline some key reasons…why you'd want to go to the trouble…of sending your audio tracks to Pro Tools.…First and foremost, Final Cut Pro is primarily…a video editing program.…There are some audio features bundled in there,…but the architecture of the program favors editing video…and working with the visual aspects of your project.…Let me ask you a question.…Would you use a screwdriver to hammer in a nail?…It's all about using the right tool for the job.…
As you can see here in Final Cut Pro…there are some audio tools available to us.…As intuitive as they might seem though,…these audio settings are pretty rudimentary.…They don't give you a lot of control…over what's actually happening with your audio files.…So I say, take control of your audio.…Use the right tool for the job,…which in this case is Pro Tools.…It's the professional standard audio software.…I'm going to step into Pro Tools…
