Audio changes aren't moving with project between libraries.

FCP X 10.3.2

I have copies of the same library at home and at work, but the audio work I've done on the edit aren't traveling with the edit. When I copy (drag from one event to the other) the project from my portable hard drive to the work computer, all of the audio channels I shut off, levels, loudness, etc aren't showing up in the work copy.

Any ideas?

Are they original media in the project timeline or compound clips?

Original media in the timeline - most of them multicam clips.

I'll go in and make adjustments inside the multicam clip with the audio (shut off channels), deal with loudness, etc. so that it propagates throughout the edit. Then I'll spot check the individual clips on the timeline as I go.

Better to handle on the timeline via Roles. If you're editing multicam files but only dragging over a project those changes aren't carrying over because they're different in each Library.

Noah, so you're saying that assigning roles to the channels of a polyphonic audio track inside a multicam won't come over with the project even though the media is the same?

I tried it again. Assigned roles yesterday inside my multicam. Brought a copy of the project home. The roles I named reverted back to Tr2, Tr3, Tr4, etc.

Tangier,

Instead of dragging the only project from one event to another, try to drag the whole event from one library to another.

It looks like the project is referencing the existing multicam clips (which don´t have the adjustments) when you drag only the project. If you copy over the event with the adjusted MC clips, maybe it´ll use those.

Another thing to try is to use the menu commands (File Copy/Move Project to Library) instead of mouse dragging, though I have no idea if that makes any difference.

That's actually what I did first. My normal routine is to transfer the entire evening, because I still run into issue with FCP X creating so many duplicates, triples, etc. of the same clip - very annoying. I tried then dragging the project over and tried exporting/importing an XML.

I will try the menu command instead.

I would suggest keeping the media outside of the Library and carrying the Library with you vs. maintaining two Libraries. Much simpler than dragging between multiples.
