The release of Final Cut Pro X was the most turbulent product launch of recent memory. The controversy rhetoric has thankfully died down since, and the product continues to improve every few months thanks to ongoing efforts from Apple as well as third-party vendors. Looking past the more argumentative points of workflow changes and vanishing features (don’t get me started on the lack of Motion round-tripping) few would argue with the statement that FCP audio tools have always been anemic.
For months, many FCP editors have hoped that a new version of Logic might appear like a knight in shining armor galloping to our auditory rescue. Alas, has not quite worked out that way … yet. There is some semi-cumbersome interoperability between the recently released Logic Pro X and FCPX, but the export/import/export dance is far from the fleet-footed round-tripping we were hoping for.
None the less, here’s a collection of workflows and tutorials from around the internet that lead to FCPX/LPX harmony.
