How do I make audio MP3 files from P2?
on Jan 30, 2015 at 3:08:57 pm

I have 2.5 hours of footage and now the client needs me to make files for transcription purposes. I am not the editor, just the videographer.

I suppose I could take it into my FCP7 or X, render, export as a MP3 but with this amount of media it will take quite a while. Any ideas? Clip Wrap, MPEG Streamclip, etc?

Thank you

With FCP7:

If you still have the original cards on a hard drive, you can start by importing the audio from the footage using Log and Transfer, then send the audio files to Compressor (using Send To -> Compressor), and then apply the MP3 preset to those clips in Compressor. (See Jeremy's answer here: )

If you don't have the original card, but have the Quicktime .MOVs, you should be able to similarly apply the compressor preset.

Note that this workflow (like MPEG Streamclip) will not give you timecode. If your client and/or their transcriptionist requires timecode, you'll have to approach this differently. Frequently an MP4 with visible TC burn is what they're looking for.
