X2Pro Audio Convert is an application that allows the transition of Final Cut Pro X projects to Avid Pro Tools for audio finishing. The tool provides a workflow between Final Cut Pro X and Avid Pro Tools. X2Pro integrates Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows, converting the exported Final Cut Pro X XML into an AAF file, which can be opened in Avid Pro Tools as a session.
The application uses XML 1.1 metadata from Final Cut Pro X that allows it to provide conversion to a Pro Tools session, with planned support for audio gain and key frames.
Unlimited numbers of audio Roles in Final Cut Pro X are converted into Pro Tools tracks, and are conveniently sorted by role name. Allowing sound designers and mixers to start working immediately. Audio edits are translated to a precision of one millisecond ensuring that even sub-frame edits are faithfully translated and synchronization is maintained. The tool also gives a warning when it comes across elements of a sequence that it currently doesn’t support such as gain, panning, fades, time maps, effects and markers. While using the tool you must remember that auditions must be finalized first before exporting the XML to X2Pro.
Multicam Clips are also supported and translated to Pro Tools but requires Final Cut Pro 10.0.3.
“Only audio media is translated. We recommend rendering an off-line or proxy version of the flattened video and exporting that if a reference is needed within Pro Tools.”
X2Pro is available on the Mac App Store for a whopping $69.99 for a limited time.
