  • Anybody Find Pro Tools Workaround?

    Posted by Robert Ober on June 28, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    Hey Folks,

    We can extract audio in X and separately I can export audio. Are folks saying that if I bring corrected audio (same timing) back in that I cannot reconnect it to the storyline? How about sync clips or some such?

    Talking 2 channel audio only for now.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    I don’t think anybody has said that – there is no reason that you can’t import a stereo audio file and lay it up to your timeline and even slip the sync if you want. The really big problem is that you can’t get audio out in the first place in any non-linear fashion – only by exporting selected audio files, which is a long way from being satisfactory.

    Before OMF in Final Cut, you used to zero out all your audio and export each section (Dialog, Music, SFX) as a separate Mono/Stereo file. You can still do this in FCP X by just grouping together (Compound Clip) a certain type of audio and exporting it out as one long file. Not nearly as easy as an OMF but will get you by until we get that feature.

    Yup, used to do that in Media Composer almost 20 years ago now! Ah, don’t you just love progress 😉

    Yeppers. And love how the “basics” always come in handy when you need to find workarounds. There’s a solution for almost anything… you might not like it but it works.

    Absolutely – devising workarounds has always been the fun part for me! Life would be so dull if everything worked the way it should!

    Thanks Men,

    Except for a couple of surround projects, I always do the cut then export to Pro Tools by exporting an aif then bring the corrected aif back in. So I can use my notalentwannabee workflow and I am relieved. This would have been a showstopper for me.

    Now I need to get back to Steve Martin’s training.

    It “works” except the mixer gets no handles. It’s really not a great solution. Has anybody played with Automatic Duck’s plugin?
