Move your Final Cut Pro X projects to the audio suite simply and quickly. X2ProLE Audio Convert takes your FCP X XML and creates an AAF with embedded audio media which Avid Pro Tools can open as a session, delivering seamless integration between the two applications.
The AAF has also been successfully imported into Steinberg Nuendo, Merging Technologies Pyramix and Apple Logic Pro X.
X2ProLE has a simple to use, user interface which provides feedback on key project statistics.
Taking advantage of the innovative Roles features in FCP X; sorting tracks by name so that sound designers can start working immediately.
Media is embedded in the AAF to create a single, simple to transfer, file.
X2ProLE faithfully translates your audio timeline along with L-cuts, J-cuts, transitions, levels, automatic gain and fade handles, as well as the incredibly powerful FCP X compound clips. Transitions are converted into linear cross fades. Audio media can be any QuickTime supported audio, non-PCM audio is converted to PCM at either 16 or 24 bit.
R3D media is supported.
Multicam Clips are effectively translated taking across the audio of the selected angle.
X2ProLE gives a clear warning when it comes across elements of a sequence which it does not translate such as time maps and effects.
We recommend rendering an off-line or proxy version of the flattened video and exporting that if a reference is needed within Pro Tools. Only audio media is translated by X2ProLE.
• FCP X, 10.0.4 or later and XML 1.1 and later
• X2ProLE runs on OS X El Capitan (10.11) and later
• Pro Tools v7.0 or later for AAF import (not LE versions, v7 and v8 require Digitranslator for AAF import)
The screenshots show the same project in FCP X and after conversion in Pro Tools, Logic Pro X and Pyramix.
This is the LE version of X2Pro. An in app purchase allows the user to upgrade to the professional version which includes:
• Embedded media can be trimmed
• Media can be referenced rather than embedded
• You can choose which roles and subroles to export and which to ignore
• You can choose the order in which roles and subroles are exported
• When FCP X Roles are packed into Pro Tools tracks, subroles can be ignored creating a far more compressed set of tracks
X2ProLE Audio Convert is a cutting edge conversion application for delivering FCP X projects for audio finishing.
X2Pro uses Marquis Media Highway technology to integrate FCP X into the established professional audio workflow. Marquis Media Highway is the core technology employed by Marquis’ media integration products – it improves how broadcast production systems interoperate by delivering a seamless and cost-effective integration between leading broadcast content applications. Marquis Broadcast specializes in content workflows and media integration software and has been delivering solutions to broadcast since 1998.
• Better handling of fades (in and out) so that speed of fade in ProTools more closely matches that in FCP X.
• Now uses v 7.1.0 of RED SDK for RED media.
Bug fixes :
• Handle RED media where the audio is shorter than expected.
• Handle empty compound clips.
• Removed option to fall back to obsolete technology for audio extraction (QTKit). Note that this may result in some clips failing for a very small number of users.
Ratings and Reviews
Worked fine the first time I used it. However, the the second time it’s giving me this error message: "Unfinalized audition found at 00:00:00.00. Please finalize all auditions before exporting Final Cut XML.” There’s no unfinalized audition at 00:00:00:00 or anywhere else in the cut. I tried deleting and reinserting shots at the start of the project but the error message remains. I tried going on their website. They do have a forum but for some reason, it rejected my gmail email address as “not able to receive email,” so I can’t log on to get help. There is no other form of customer support — no email address, no phone number. It’s a basically a virutal company. So, I had to post here. It would be better if they had easier accessibility to sort out issues.
Didn’t work and no support
I was unable to convert my project from FCX so I basically wasted $100. The worst part though is that there is no tech support that I can find. There’s the knowledge base and FAQs but for software this expensive I should be able to email somebody.
Developer Response ,
We're sorry you were unable to convert your project. We do offer technical support via our support forum, please post your problem here and a member of our team will be able to assist you, https://forum.marquisbroadcast.com/.
This program is literally a life saver. Seamless integration between FCPx and Pro Tools. Price point is decent for the LE version and still leaves room for improvement for more professional uses to upgrade.
The only thing I would fix is, from someone who organizes their footage and sound in various folders, it takes a LONG time to add folder permission's for x2pro to view each folder one at a time. I would love to see a way to add a folder but also include all the subfolders inside.
