Final Cut Pro XML files
The Final Cut Pro XML format is used to import and export audio data between Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro.
Import a Final Cut Pro XML file into Logic Pro
Do one of the following:
Choose File > Import > Final Cut Pro XML, then choose the file in the Import dialog.
Locate the file in the Media Browser, then double-click it.
If you import sequences that use audio files with different sample rates, you are given the following options:
To alter the sample rate of your Logic Pro project to match all imported Final Cut Pro sequence audio files.
To retain the sample rate of your Logic Pro project. All Final Cut Pro sequence audio files that use a sample rate that differs from the selected one are converted.
Note: When you import Final Cut Pro sequences into Logic Pro, automation data—volume and pan, for example—is retained.
Export a Logic Pro project as a Final Cut Pro XML file
Choose File > Export > Project to Final Cut Pro XML.
In the Export Project to Final Cut Pro XML dialog, do the following:
Enter a name for the export file in the Save As field.
Select the Export as Final Cut Compound Clip checkbox if you want to export the project as a compond clip.
Select the “Include video in export” checkbox if you want to include the movie (if one exists) in the XML file.
Note: Software instrument tracks are always bounced to audio files. MIDI tracks are ignored. Bouncing automatically switches to real-time mode, if necessary (such as when an I/O or External Instrument plug-in is used).
