Hi Guys, I just wrote a post about this in the FCPX forum, but this is priobably a more appropriate place
Im trying to export an xml from fcpx to logic x so that i can export an omf file from there.
I have been editing multicam clips, with sound effects and music files also.
On the multicam clips, I am only using external mic but it's synced up with the clip.
When I open it in logic, only the music, and not the audio from the mic will appear.
So I'm thinking its something wrong with the way I am exporting it from FCP.
I have been trying to export audio only, but the other options haven't been working for me so far either.
Any suggestion on how to make this work?
Also I am wondering whether it is possible to convert an AAF to OMF in Logic?
Yes, you can import standard AAF (not Avid AAF which is tweaked specifically for ProTools) into Logic Pro X, and then export OMF.
There is a glitch in Logic Pro X, it has trouble with compounds of any type (compound clips, sync clips, multicam clips, etc). You need to break those apart into individual clips first. Hopefully a LPX update will come along so it can read compounds properly.
I know this is an old thread and it looks like my issue has been addressed (we apparently can't export XML cleanly if synchronized clips are used), but because I'm desperate to solve this problem, I figured I'd give it a go anyway. Plus, maybe things have changed since the last post here.
i'm trying to export an XML from FCPX 10.2 to Logic 10.1.1 and it doesn't work. I get audio from parts of the clip that are trimmed out in FCPX. I have separated the audio from the clip and made it it's own audio track. This did nothing to help. I can't find a way to actually export from FC to LPX so the audio matches. Trying to do some audio work with some Logic plugins and can't get the audio over there. I know this is an old post. It would appear Logic isn't really ready for an efficient FCPX to LPX workflow by what I've been reading.
