Logic Pro X Released with FCPX Support
on Jul 16, 2013 at 10:31:14 pm

Anybody got any extra info on this? Looks like it only exports to FCPX but even that would be cool...

From Apples Logic page:
Export multitrack projects to Final Cut Pro X with support for Final Cut Pro X compound clips and plug-in automation.


Further down the page it suggests but doesn't explicitly say it can import FCPX XML as well.

From the manual re FCPX import :
Logic Pro allows you to exchange multiple audio tracks, with all positional region information, region names, and volume and pan automation data retained.

On export to FCPX MIDI tracks are ignored. You can also choose to export your composition as a compound clip.

I'm excited because I was a musician for a couple of decades and I do occasionally compose soundtracks for the stuff I edit but I'm wondering what Logic actually brings to the table in terms of day to day editing? Actually having tracks and a mixer, I guess...

That's exactly what I was thinking about. I don't see Logic as an everyday companion to FCPX, it has never been part of the old FCS suite either.

FCPX already has inherited quite a few tools and filters from Logic and STP for audio sweetening, and together with the audio components concept this does allow for some very decent audio work right inside the NLE. This has already changed our workflow in such a way that we don't go to ProTools that often anymore.

But for long projects with complex audio lanes Logic X could play a role. It all depends on how much further FCPX gets developed with regard to audio. 10.1 should be a good indicator for this, I guess. In the meantime I am going to download a copy of Logic X later this week just to see how well it plays with FCPX. If anyone has already tested this I would welcome any reactions.

But, keep in mind that this new integration will allow your composer and your editor to work more directly. By exporting the Logic session as a compound clip rather thane a simple stereo mix will allow the editor to manipulate things more directly within the FCP X project rather than simply having to deal with the stereo / 5.1 mix track provided.

I've seen films where I wish that I could turn the horns down just a bit to help make the dialog more present. But, because the strings need to be that loud for the ambience of the scene, we're stuck with loud horns. If you have a compound clip, you could tone the horns down a couple of dB and not affect the strings.

Initial reports are that the import to Logic isn't all that great. It doesn't understand roles and has a tendency to put each audio clip on its own track because of that. Looks like it might be better to hang back until they get another update out.

Having said that, I'll probably still get it just because I'm still using Logic 7 and its about time I had an excuse to update.
