X2Pro Audio Convert

By Marquis Broadcast (Marquis Broadcast Limited)

Move your Final Cut Pro X projects to the audio suite simply and quickly. X2Pro Audio Convert takes your FCP X XML and creates an AAF with embedded or referenced 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.

X2Pro Audio Convert is a cutting edge conversion application for delivering FCP X projects for audio finishing, it is easy to use directly from within FCP X.

Taking advantage of the innovative Roles features in FCP X, X2Pro allows you to choose how these are converted to tracks; their order, packing and whether they are included, allowing sound designers to start working immediately.

Media can be embedded in the AAF (and trimmed with handles to minimise file size) to create a single, simple to transfer, file. Alternatively the AAF can reference external media which is ideal when FCP X and ProTools have access to the same shared storage.

Those who do not need the advanced functions of referenced, trimmed media, or close control of the conversion of Roles, can look at the cost effective X2ProLE.

X2Pro 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.

X2Pro gives a clear warning when it comes across elements of a sequence which it cannot 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 X2Pro.

• FCP X, 10.0.4 or later and XML from 1.1
• X2Pro 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)

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.

Pretty frustrationg when you pay £150 for something only for it to keep crashing when you are trying to use it, especially when i am one week away from my university hand-in and just emptied my bank buying this!!!! FIX NOW!

It does the job but painfully (4.0.12)

I’ve been making a short 30 min film in FCPX. When it came to having the sound sorted with ProTools I hit the export problem and finally found X2Pro. perhaps for now it should just be called X2 and forget the ‘pro’ bit. Mainly because the end result of using this program which is dedicated for FCPX is so messy. From what I can see in my film I have 4 audio tracks (Roles) Dialogue, Music, Ambient & Effects. However when I export and then import into Protools it gives me everything spread across 44 tracks! If I export with 'Subroles merged' feature on it still gives me 22 tracks! It’s crazy and seems quite unnecessary. How it’s actually syncing with FCPX I don’t know. Apart from that it’s simlpe to use. Totally overpriced but it’s a niche market place I guess. I’ve given it 3 stars as it did manage to import my tracks into Protools but it did feel like an unnecesscary stressful process.

Superb application that’s a no brainer for all FCPX editors needing to output audio to Pro Tools. (3.0.13)

It seems that nobody’s written a review for this app for a while. Both reviews are significantly out of date. So I thought I’d set the record straight with a brief up to date review. X2Pro is a superb application, and I can’t recommend it highly enough to all FCPX editors who work with sound engineers and mixers. If you need to send your timeline to Pro Tools, this is the cleanest, simplest, most reliable way to do so! Until now, we’ve been sending our FCPXMLs to XtoCC, then importing the resulting XML into FCP7 and creating an OMF from there. It’s convoluted. And what’s worse, sometimes FCP7 simply refuses to relink to the correct files. It’s glitchy and unnecessary. X2Pro simplifies the whole process. It even takes into account your roles, and gives you the option to split these roles (and indeed sub roles) into tracks for Pro Tools. I’ve just had a glowing review from our audio engineers saying how tidy the AAF came across, and that everything was perfectly in sync and understandable. And that sort of says it all really. If your audio guys are happy with it, then the plugin has done it’s job. A**

An exercise in frustration! (1.1)

I'm a pro editor and was really looking forward to the release of this app, as it promised to take care of a major omission from the Final Cut Pro X feature list. However, the lack of a consolidate feature on this app means that your resultant AAF will be huge! For example, I exported an AAF for a 2-20min trailer, and it turned out to 3.87GB!!!!! What a joke! Also, if you're sourcing from multi-track audio, all the tracks from the source will be bundled into the AAF, even if you've just used 2 of them (in my case, dialogue and effects). Essentially, this renders the app a complete disaster for editors who use the very common workflow of completing an edit and then exporting an AAF, so a third party audio house can mix in Pro-tools! If you do buy this app in its current form, please ensure you have a bucket full of raid drives for storage and fibre-optic broadband; otherwise avoid it like the plague. Btw, if you're having trouble sleeping, you can read the extensive list of omissions that features with each and every export. Come on guys; sort it out!

An essential tool that opens up FCPX for pro use (1.0)

A really well conceived app that finally opens up FCPX for professional use. To date the only options availlable for getting audio out of FCPX and into ProTools have been workarounds at best. This dedicated app writes an industry standard AAF and as far as I can tell does so without issues - which given the immense complexity of the task is much more impressive than it sounds. Let's just say that other translators for FCPX are not as reliable as this one is. There are a number of limitations at the moment, one being that volume and pan are not supported yet but Marquis say this is the next thing being addressed. The other issue which could be problematic in some cases is that there is no facility for trimming the exported media (typically you'd expect to be able to consolidate on export) or for linking to tour source medai. As a result all your audio media gets copied into the AAF (not just the sections used in the edit) and this can result in a large file that it quite slow to export. Apparently this too is being addressed. An excellent app which is being developed with real care and attention - highly recommended.

From this dev.
