There are no bars and tone in FCPX yet despite what it said in Apple's literature. Sorry.

Not sure why you would need bars and tone when you can't output to tape.

Sometimes it's useful to add bars and tone in a tapeless workflow. I regularly add a little at the beginning of files that go out-of-house, since I know that the files may get transcoded at another facility, and the bars are useful in determining if there have been any transcoding issues (gamma shifts, level/colour distortions, etc.)

Export my sequence (now project) as mov with bars and tone and then use AJA VTR Xchange for Edit to Tape.

I can see needing T&B.

Edit in FCPX make everything look as good as possible. Then put T&B on the front of the video and export. Then launch FCP7 or M100 or any NLE w/output to AJA or whatever card. Check the Bars on external scopes, adjust as necessary and then export to tape.

This is how I am planning to use FCPX on a couple new projects.

I created a generator in Motion by modifying a generator from FCPX there, replacing media with a set of bars from a BMP. I now have a generator called Color Bars in my generators tab. It is easy to import tone.

This seems like an easy fix for now.

For something being projected in a calibrated theater, a known level signal can help in setting up the project video and the house sound level.

Since Motion projects including Generators don't include audio tracks - why not output Bars and Tone as a QT movie from FCP 7? Then import this movie into your Event(s). What's nice about this is it's a self contained movie that includes the Tone audio.

I have a ten second clip(s) if you want it ... both 1080p HD and NTSC DV
