Foolcut - FCPx to AE AppleScript.

Just got this from FCP.co Twitter feed. Sounds like it was designed to use as an R3D conform tool(take RCX generated proxies and link back to R3D), but can also work with any media.

Theoretically, you might be able to throw in some dynamic linking to PPro and then you have an XML exporter.

Can't wait to try this out. If this works without any API, that's pretty amazing.

Wow, this is very interesting. Tried with simple cuts and seem to work!

this is the best thing I have heard on FCPX for quite some time

this proves there is going to be a massive developer community around workflow

no API and a guy who says he isnt a full time programmer has knocked this together

think we have some nice API goodies on the run up to christmas

[Ben Scott] "this is the best thing I have heard on FCPX for quite some time"

Not bad, right?

Didn't get a chance to test this today, hopefully tomorrow.

Thanks guys for your comments :-)

I'm the author of this app and I'm open to any question or suggestion you may have.

I will add a demo video on the website to show it action today... and I'm working on exporting the audio in AE as it was already requested by someone

Best

Mikael

I tried throwing the app on the script library window in the applescript script editor application, FCPX is not refused, so I already thought it might be scriptable, however there is no library yet.

Mikael if I may ask and without disclosing any of your code, how do you go about interfacing with FCPX, are you doing everything via AppleScript? Did you use common AppleScript terms to find out the synthax that works?

Hi

Altho my app is an applescript (with over 2000 lines of code) it is not using any applescript command to control FCPX in any way.

The project data is simply read from the system and the applescript code is used to parse all the data and make the correct javascript code to reimport everything in AfterEffects.

check out the website I've added a list of all features and know issues or give the demo a try.

Thanks

Mikael

So you're parsing the SQlite files of the project and events? (Yeah, I am fishing for more info! ;-))

2000 lines of applescript code?! Impressive!

I don't have any need for your app yet, because I don't use AE, but I might in the near future.

It's good to see that there are possibilities with FCPX!

Looks pretty cool.
I tried with a simple sequence and it seems to work.

Awesome idea.

I actually skipped the dynamic linking of the comp. I exported out of After Effects as a Premiere Project, opened that, and then Exported out an XML and back into FCP 7 and it worked.

Alternatively, you could copy and paste some layers from AE to Premiere too.

Bad ass. This is exactly what I haven't had time to test. Thank for sharing that!

Mikael,

Judging from your Foolcut Vimeo video, your Engliah has gotten much better:-)

But seriously, your Foolcut FCPx to AE is very clever and brilliant--something that the "big guys" haven't been able to do. Congratulations.

Eli

Yep the voice is terrible but I was in a rush and couldn't find someone around to do a nice voice... if you volunteer to record it I will greatly appreciate and replace the computer voice with yours :-)

latest version 0.97 supports FCP 10.0.1 and audio Roles are translated as AE markers. fixes several audio issues too.

With the new fcp xml released a FCP X <-> FCP 7 converter should come soon too !

Mikael,

Send me the script if you like and I'll be glad to do a free VO for you.

(I've done more than a 500 professional VO's in my career)

Or, if you'd like to keep the computer voice, it's kind of cool in a 2001, a Space Odyssey kinda way!

You're call.

Thanks for your hard work

Thanks Bill

Yep tried to make it fun in an homage to HAL-9000, now it is almost fashionable with Siri...

I received several offers already for voice over but it seems I cannot "update" a vimeo clip with another media file so it would mean posting a new video so I gave up the idea. But for future products why not :-)

Whenever you want to give it a whirl, drop me a line.

You can reach me at my "day to day" email address.

Slightly munged to keep the spambots at bay it's: new (opposite of old) video (withoutanyspaces) AT fastq (fast plus a lower case Q) DOT COM.

I'd be happy to help if I can.

Bill
