Specialist in content workflows and media integration software Marquis Broadcast, has announced the launch of X2Pro Audio Convert, a new conversion application for delivering Final Cut Pro X projects to Avid Pro Tools for audio finishing.
The X2Pro utilises Marquis’ Media Highway, the core technology employed by Marquis’ media integration products, to integrate Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows. X2Pro converts the exported Final Cut Pro X XML into an AAF file, which Avid Pro Tools can open as a session, facilitating seamless integration between the two applications.
“We are excited about the introduction of X2Pro Audio Convert,” said Chris Steele, product manager of Marquis Broadcast. “It provides a smooth workflow between Final Cut Pro X and Pro Tools, allowing users to take full advantage of the functionality of these world-class products now and in the future.”
Using the enhanced metadata in XML 1.1 from Final Cut Pro X, X2Pro is designed to provide a high fidelity conversion to a Pro Tools session, with planned support for audio gain, transitions, and key frames. Capitalising on the metadata-based organising features in Final Cut Pro X, infinite numbers of audio Roles in Final Cut Pro X are converted into Pro Tools tracks, allowing sound designers and mixers to start working immediately.
X2Pro will be available from the end of February at an introductory discount price of $69.99 for the first month, compared to a list price of $99.99. For further information please see www.x2pro.net
