Audio on FCPX - how would you do this?
on Jul 18, 2011 at 5:34:49 pm

When doing interviews I record separate mono audio to each of the 2 tracks. How does FCPX handle getting the following to the timeline - audio 1 only, 2 only, both and all with and without video?

In the Inspector you can choose to view 2 track audio as mono pairs and from there decide to have both on or one or the other.

Noah -

And I assume you can click back and forth easily, switching between audio channels every time you add something to the timeline?

And as a follow up, how easy would it be to replace an edit that had ch. 1 audio with ch.2 audio.

Thanks.

It depends how you did it. It's easier if you do the soloing in the inspector to change later- but then you won't be able to edit in the timeline. Worth just trying it out and seeing what works best.

Some tricks around this.
In dual mono in the inspector you can turn on and off the individual tracks as desired.

If you use Open In Timeline command on a dual mono clip, you will have the individual clips to be acted upon.

If you Break Apart Clips you will get two separate audio tracks.

Thank you.

On another note is it true that currently there are no time code indicators for source shots on the timeline? In other words is there any way to look at the timeline and see the timecode of the sources used? And if not is the info available in another way, for example, by right clicking and choosing from a menu (this was the PP method in version 1.)

I just ran into this article from Rick Young.

Very well explained.

If you select a clip in the timeline and go into the info tab in the inspector window, the in/out TC will be displayed there (maybe not under the basic view though). I do hope Apple provides a better way to view timecode.

Here is a timecde-reder, it displays it nicely on top of the video, perfect:

Gregor -

The way I understand it, this is a filter which you would have to apply to a clip in order to read it's timecode, is that correct? If so where (on the screen) does the timecode window display, and what happens if several clips have he filter on, does it only display the code under the playhead - I don't understand how this would work.

Correct.

The timecode can be placed everywhere on the screen, if you open it in Motion, you could even make it display vertically.
Yes, it displays the timecode under the playhead and even under the skimmer, simply try it.
