[Matthew Sonnenfeld] "Take the issue with audio in FCPX. Sure you can export audio with dialogue, effects, music, etc. but the way i understand it is that the clips all need to be labeled individually so that the XML can organize them coherently to go to ProTools. Yes it's nice metadata to know what's dialogue and what's not at a glance but its extra steps."

See, this is a common misconception about the Roles feature. You should check out my tutorial on Roles right here on the Cow.

FCPX INs and OUTs-Roles

First of all, those metadata roles are assigned automatically by FCPX using a variety of criteria when imported. If it guesses wrong, roles can be changed for a single clip, or entire event's worth of clips with about two clicks of the mouse.

Secondly, you likely do it all the time so you probably don't see it this way, but placing specific audio on specific tracks in a timeline is actually taking "extra" steps. They are the extra steps that you do consciously to remain organized, but you don't HAVE to put your dialogue on tracks 1 and 2.

The roles feature trades a completely manual workflow for one that is about 90 percent automated. How does that defeat the purpose?
