Oh wow... yeah, pretty complex. Maybe I can help these guys out with this info.

But yeah, it's not really simple. Plus, to me this feels like you have to do a lot of things twice. And when you forget to do something (and FCPX will allow you to forget things) you're in a big mess.

If I just add up from import in FCPX to AAF export:

1. Make sure all the codecs, frame rates, frequencies are the same, if not convert
2. Create Library en check settings
3. Import
4. Add roles to audio
5. Order everything in events, folder, keywords etc.
6. Edit and turn off audio you don't need (disable, deselect or detach and remove)
7. Export to X2Pro
8. Work on settings for audio tracks you want discarded, bundled etc...
9. Export.

Again... it's quite a bit of work. That's one of the things of AVID I prefer, because this workflow is much easier.

1. Create project with project settings
2. Import media (which gets converted to project settings if necessary)
3. Order media in bins
4. Edit
5. Create AFF settings (and save as profile for future use)
6. Export to AAF

The next time you cut you can leave step 5 out of it. I do think in this workflow AVID is doing much more of the heavy lifting than FCPX and gives less room for mistakes.
