Avid MC to Final Cut Pro 7 - Automatic Duck
on Mar 14, 2017 at 11:48:20 am

Hello everyone,
I need to move some sequences from MC to FCP7 but Automatic Duck seems to be Discontinued, I have been searching for hours in the web but still not luck finding the plugin.

I wonder if someone still have Automatic Duck Pro Import and if if there's any chance I can have it?

Thank you guys, I really need the pluggin and I have not idea where I can find it.

Kind Regards

Hernan.

-- OR --

Export video from Avid losslessly for use in FCP 7. Perhaps even an A & B roll to include trim handles. You can do that right away with no waiting around for a discontinued plugin.

Export AAF from Avid.
Import into DaVinci Resolve Lite

Export Media and XML for import into FCP7.

Thank you for your answer Dave,
This is my first time posting here and I'm glad you guys take the time to answer.

I hope I don't need to go the way you recommend as they are complexed sequences and they have to go back to Avid once the editor is done.

AD let me create proxy files linking to existing media and thats exactly what I need right now.

Hope someone can help me with that.

Thank you again Dave

Hernan.

John's way is a lot better than mine!

I know people are reluctant to give up FCP 7, but it is seven-year-old software, and it hasn't been supported for five years.

If it's a money issue, gently inform your editor that Da Vinci Resolve is track-based, up-to-date, free and good.

John and Dave,
You guys are just right about FCP 7, Believe me I feels bad debuting here with such of pathetic post.. "asking for a discontinued plugin that allow me to work with a discontinued software".

I won't ask for AD if I had a better option for just this jobb. I love resolve and I use it a lot, but just for this jobb resolve is not an option for me due the lost of some metadata in the audio files.
It's not money issues that force me to desperately want that plugin, it's more time issues.

I have now found the Pro Export plugin, I just need the Pro Import plugin.

FCP7 users: if you have used the plugin before you may find it in your plugins folder, I don't need the installer, just the plugin.

/Library/Application Support/Final Cut Pro System Support/Plugins

Thank you very much.

Hernan.

I have it, but it's node locked to the system I thought. I had to go through some steps to install it...it has DRM on it to prevent this from happening.

But he DID release it for free when his site went down. I wonder if I have those installers. I do...email me at comeback at mac dot com. I believe I have the unlocked installers.

Resolve can exchange with both FCP and Avid, so it's a good go between in many instances. And it's free to try.

AD has been discontinued for years, so I would not count on it working well on complex sequences with recent versions of Avid.

Automatic Duck was great for its time. But even then you'd have issues for complex projects.
To re open all that and potentally more is just daft.
Move on drop FCP legacy. You can download and use Avid free for 30 days.
