    iZotope RX8 Removes direct FCPX support.

    I inquired about this and received the following from their support.

    Some of the changes involved with the processing upgrades have made it a bit harder for Final Cut Pro to handle the DSP workload, so this was removed from official support.

    That being said, the External Editor workflow will continue to work as an option for full functionality:

    I do see Premiere support listed. I thought they supported Avid at one point and that’s not listed either.

    Not sure about this version but RX7 works in Fairlight & Resolve. I’m sure there are plenty of host that support VST2 & 3 so there are likely many more compatible hosts. Not sure what the issue is with FCPX. I wonder how big the software team at FCPX is is these days. Maybe they are just slow to respond and will get around to fixing it.

    I didn’t know RX8 was out so thanks for the heads up. I usually get notices from iZotope.

    I didn’t realize FCPX had an external editor function (I use it in Resolve, and it’s fantastic).

    I’ve always avoided using the RX7 plugins because they lack the full functionality of the standalone version and some of them are very processor-intensive. In Resolve it’s easy to use the external editor function to roundtrip clips to RX without having to re-import them, but it sounds like I can do the same in Final Cut, which is interesting.

    As an unrelated note, it sounds like Resolve 17 will have improvements to the editing features, possibly including a better system for selects/favorites (currently done with subclips or duration markers). BMD’s product manager for Resolve, Peter Chamberlain, hinted at this in a comment in BMD’s DaVinci Resolve forum a few days ago…and he said it would be coming soon.

    It seems that FXFactory CrumplePop and Acusonus have plugins that duplicate most of the functions of RX8 although, in total, can cost almost as much as RX8 Standard.

    RX8 is working fine here in FCPX; no sluggishness or issues that I can perceive.

    How so if they offer no RX8 plugins for FCPX?

    I have RX8 installed and all the RX8 plugins are available in FCPX… that’s why your post was confusing to me. Do you have RX8 installed? Do you not see them listed in your FCPX audio filters?

    No plugins are listed on their site and when I contacted support they said there are no plugins for FCPX. Additionally, the site FAQ says to import the clips from finder into their editor. Surprised that you’re saying the information is wrong. It may be but that’s poor website information and bad sales on their part.

    Again the wording from their support directly as in my original post.

    Some of the changes involved with the processing upgrades have made it a bit harder for Final Cut Pro to handle the DSP workload, so this was removed from official support.
