Audio Levels FCP to QT
on Oct 14, 2010 at 3:47:38 pm

Wrapping up long-term huge project, 80-hr HDV footage digitized in ProRes422 for 2-hr DVD. I'm exporting individual sequences to deliver for DVD Authoring from FCP to Quicktime (current settings). The quick-times occasionally have incorrect audio mix, more specifically keyframes to smoothly change audio level in FCP sequence are now much different in the quicktime, some levels actually pop on/off instead of faithfully reproduce as in FCP sequence. I've double checked the sequences and sound good. Not a consistent problem and happens occasionally.

Any thoughts on what's going on and what can I do to fix problem.

Select All, then Sequence>Render Only>Mixdown.

I've read this simple trick can even help out certain video problems. Go figure.

I'll give that a try, of course I render before I make quick-times although I have not done the mix down audio in quit a long time.

Thanks for the tip.
