X2Pro and file size limit in Pro-Tools
on Aug 21, 2013 at 3:46:30 pm

Anyone have any experience using X2Pro with long format projects?

My export ends up at 5gigs which Post House saying may crash pro-tools.

Is there a simple way to slice the export into multiple files?

I thought about just dividing my project timeline into 3, but when i cut/pasted I noticed it is not preserving the edit exactly? (namely connected clips seem to be moving for some reason????

Are you using the "LE" version or the "Pro" version?

Cool, so you can trim the files... Jeremy's idea is the way to go then. :-)

There's an option to reference the wave files, but that would mean you'd have to give all of the media to the post house.

So:

Dupe your Project three times.

Replace the second 2/3 from the first project with gaps keeping timing in order. Select back 2/3 of clips in primary storyline and hit shift delete. Delete any connected clips on those back 2/3.

Using the same methods, replace the first 1/3 and back 1/3 from the second project with gaps

On the third project, replace the first 2/3 of the Project with gaps.

Make sure to note where you have split each Project so that they stay frame accurate.

The first visible frame of the second project (after the gap) should be the next frame right after the last visible frame in your first project. That is to say, if you were to string all of these three projects together, they would comprise the complete piece with no dupe frames and all sequence tc in place.

Export the three separate XMLs and process all three separately.

Hopefully that will knock the file size down enough for them.

So that technique worked like a dream.

In hindsight I wonder if it would have been faster and simpler to just disable clips (instead of replacing with gap) --- since X2Pro will discard disabled clips automatically if you ask to in settings?

Sure. That's a good insight.
