AE and FCP X surprise
on Dec 10, 2013 at 6:55:09 am

I thought FCP X wouldn't relink to anything that wasn't exactly perfectly the same - clip name, length, specs, etc?

I just rendered something out of AE and brought it into FCP X. Then I quit X, rerendered the file over itself, and doubled its length. I opened up FCP X, expecting to have to delete and reimport. But to my surprise, no errors. I just went to the file in the timeline and dragged out the new added length. Whaaaat?

Oh Bill, please explain. Why didn't I make the FCP X database driven file system explode? :)

The database has become self-aware and is evolving on its own

I heard the codename for 10.1 is SkyNet.

That deserves an LOL!

There's nothing we can't argue about on the FCPX COW Forum

One of three possibilities, methinks.

A) some complex thing where in some file types, the "end of file" indicator isn't a deal breaker to X.

B) After Effects and FCP X were lonely over the holidays and have now become BFFs (best File Friends) just so they'll each have someone to spend the holidays with.

Or my preferred answer,..

C) Christmas Miracle!

This must be something with 10.0.9 which seemed to squash the dreaded "Modified File" bug. I've been doing my auduo processing with iZotope and have had zero problems relinking to the new processed file. Seems that the important thing is the length of the clip doesn't change.

But that was the point of my post. I doubled the length of the file and didn't even have to relink. It never went offline. It just saw there was more footage and I was able to extend it.

Oh right, I misunderstood. That is unexpected! Good to know.
