Synching audio with video in FCPX
on Jul 18, 2017 at 11:43:48 pm

Hello! I'm using FCPX to sync the files.

I'm importing all the audio tracks that go with one take, and syncing it with the video - and FCPX makes one video track with one audio track - with all the mics in there .

If I sync them all together like this - will an audio person be able to later separate them?

I'm trying to decide if I should sync each individual mic track w the video separately - so that it creates its own file or if I can make a combined video with all the tracks??

thank you!!!

When it come time to pass it on, you would use the roles you assigned to each track to export the audio tracks in whatever format the audio guy needs.

[cybil lake] "I'm importing all the audio tracks that go with one take, and syncing it with the video - and FCPX makes one video track with one audio track - with all the mics in there .

This sounds like a polyphonic wav file from a multichannel recorder. It looks like one track but the individual components are visible in the inspector. If the recorder supports iXML, you can import the track names into FCPX and those can be passed on to an audio finisher.







If the files were not properly labeled during production, you can assign roles to each channel to obtain similar results: https://larryjordan.com/articles/fcp-x-using-and-importing-ixml-audio-names...

Those audio roles can be exported as separate files for downstream use, or as a multitrack file:

If it's a polyphonic file you just sync once; normally the other contained tracks are mutually sync'd. If it is discrete files from multiple recorders, then you'll have to sync them just like any multi-camera situation with separate audio sources.

For a single video and single audio or multiple audio sources, it's often better to use a multicam clip not a sync clip: http://www.fcpworks.com/sync-or-multicam-clips/

Top of the inspector pane in the 'menu bar" you see a a film strip and an i circled and a speaker . Click on the speaker icon and you will see the audio tracks for the clip(s) you have selected. You can then check or uncheck the tracks you want to hear or use In that panel.
