My AppleScript App mimics keypresses in order to do an instant audio crossfade.

In FCPX Command editor:
Toggle Audio Fade In is SHIFT 9
Toggle Audio Fade Out is SHIFT 0

AppleScript:

try
do shell script "pgrep -x 'Final Cut Pro'"
on error
--FCP not open so quit
error number -128
end try

tell application "Final Cut Pro" to activate

tell application "System Events"

keystroke "[" using shift down

key code 47 using shift down

key code 126 --up

keystroke "]" using shift down

keystroke "," using shift down

key code 126 using command down --up

keystroke "0" using shift down

keystroke "s" using control down

key code 125 using command down --down

keystroke "9" using shift down

keystroke "s" using control down

keystroke "a" using {command down, shift down}

end tell




The idea of a keyboard macro is not new, but this may be helpful.

Apple script is pretty cool. But just in case you are interested, check out this article on how to create an Audio Only transition using Motion. https://www.provideocoalition.com/audio-only-cross-fades-in-final-cut-pro-x...

Hi Chad

I find the compound clips to be a pain to unpick with that method.
