Logic Pro X workflow vs Final Cut Pro X
I’ve been using FCP X for several years to edit video. Recently, however, I’ve needed to also edit a lot of podcast content. Naturally, I started editing with the tool I know the most—FCP X.
After reading a lot of articles and reviews I’ve recently been thinking about switching over to Logic Pro X since it’s geared specifically for this type of work.
Aside from the fact that Logic Pro X has a bit of a steep learning curve—which I’m willing to endure, I’m wondering about its workflow.
For example, in FCP X I can have many timelines (1 for each podcast episode) which allow me to open all of them and do things such as copy & paste filters, settings, audio clips, and even just quickly listen to all of them for comparison purposes. Additionally, I can use Events in FCP to organize multiple jobs from the same client.
Unless I’m missing something it doesn’t seem like this is possible in Logic Pro X. It looks like I can only have 1 timeline per project. So if for example, if have 10 episodes, I would have to have 10 separate Logic Pro X projects on my HDD. I can live without the Events feature but being able to have multiple timelines in Logic Pro X would be awesome.
Any other tips from folks who have to deal with multiple timelines would be appreciated.
