Hey guys. I've another doco I need to squirt out to ProTools for mixing and was wondering if anyone with Logic Pro X could do some tests on how well it works with FCP X XML now that it's been updated.

I'd much rather spend my money on this than a one trick pony in X2Pro.

My doco is TV 1 hour with lots of 4 camera Multicam.

Cheers.

It has never worked properly. X2Pro is your safest bet. Although there is an LPX update today.

Can't help with Logic X but I'm wondering what your problems are as I have used X2Pro very successfully?

No problems. Would just prefer to fork out the money for a full program that does all kinds of things rather than a one trick pony that may be made redundant at any time when Apple change things.

Logic is a good program and could help you if you keep everything in-house (i.e. yourself) and are willing to learn it. I'm not sure if the update has truly fixed the interchange between FCPX, but we do know they are working on it, and I bet one day it will be very good.

However, almost all sound editors and mixers use Pro Tools, so you will likely have to get X2Pro at some point anyway. It's updated constantly, and considering the track record, it will be updated if Appe changes anything on their end.

I've had several issues with X2Pro with 96k sample rates/32 bit rates. I usually open the aaf file generated by x2pro with logic x to see how accurate it is. Often I've found incorrect media placed where something else should be.

I then export aaf from logic x because it exports all the necessary files and references them.
Today after installing the update to logic, I no longer have a need for x2pro.

I'm not finding the new Logtic update to work all that well with FCPXML, still. Finding very buggy behavior. One day it'll work. BTW, in most pro recording studios, you'll find Pro Tools. In most professional musicians' project studios, you'll find Logic. If they could only get FCPXML to work properly, or find a better round-trip solution between the two... (sigh)

So is it my understanding that if you use X2Pro that you get better XML to import into Logic Pro X?

What do you do for the return trip?

I'd like to dive into Logic Pro X if there is a solution.

X2Pro makes XML files for Pro Tools.

That’s what I thought but I wasn’t sure if the XML was compatible and you got cleaner XML files to use.

Is Logic Pro X worth getting to use with FCPX?

I’m used to the Apple environment and have used Garageband over the years, though I’m not an advanced user.

What exactly do you want to use it for?

The round trip between FCPX and Logic Pro X via FCPXML (the only method really) doesn't work well, yet.

I figured that my music bed edits would be smoother in Logic.

The potential freelance I have coming up is more short documentary based. Around 5 minutes to tell the story. So I want to be as prepared as possible.

If you're doing serious music production, LPX is great.
