I desperately need Automatic Duck
on Apr 25, 2015 at 3:13:16 pm

For reasons not worth getting into I DESPERATELY need to download/get a version of Automatic Duck so I can transcode an AVID EDL into FCPX XML. OR I need another program that can do it. All the AD sources are gone (for good reason). I'm just caught in a stupid projects/systems/different computers situation that probably couldn't be replicated if I (or anyone) tried.

Anyone help a brother out? I've been in this Hell for the last two months and I'm about to loose it.

HELP!

Resolve Lite should be able to do that. Import EDL, then export FCPXML from the timeline created by the import.

That's your best bet. The versions of the duck currently available only convert Avid to FCP 7. Then you need another tool to go from FCP 7 to FCX. That one isn't free.

Sorry, should have mentioned that. I can't freakin' run Resolve Lite (I'm a director/writer not a pro editor) as I'm on an early 2011 Macbook pro with only 8GB of RAM and an Intel 3000 graphics card. I have an old version of FCP7 still running, so no problems there...I'm not even trying to get to FCPX.

SO....still need Auto Duck as I'm still living in 2012 at the latest tech-wise here.

Any help?

Anyone? **taps mic** This thing on? **Begins crying silently due to unmanliness and weeks of frustration**


Thanks.

Doesn't FCP7 import EDL's? the only issue is if the Avid EDL is using a template not supported by FCP7 like the 16 or 32 character source file versions to keep up with modern formats. If not, send your EDL to me at michael[at]24p[dot]com and I'll run it through Resolve.

Someone help this poor man out...I feel your pain! Sorry I can't seem to get AutoDuck out of Avid as a DMG otherwise I'd put it up somewhere for you. Hey, maybe Mr. Michael Phillips would be kind enough to extend his offer to you?

Axle Transfer (formerly Boris Transfer) has a 14 day free trial. Does pretty much the same thing as Automatic Duck.

I have the Boris version (they sold it recently) and it works well enough. Keep in mind there are many things Avid does quite differently than FCP7, so no translation is ever perfect.

Okay. I think I'm good. So many thanks for the help (and the time travel back to the early 10's).

After freaking out b/c I forgot to tick the "Use Media" box for the first import...I went back and did that so that the media was actually linked in FCP7. Then kicked out the OMF. I think I'm good.

Alle-freakin'-lujah.

Again, many thanks, especially for the AutoDuck find...could not dig that up.

The link that Glenn posted is no longer accessible. I'm in the same boat as Christopher (need automatic duck, computer not compatible with Davinci). Any other tips for where I could find an old download of Automatic Duck? Most links now just direct you to an expired page.
