have you checked out Postlab from Hedge?
They have some very cool features coming soon:
Alternatively for just the sync side of things maybe this is worth checking....
So not cool!
Hate paying for things that break down.
Was going to suggest Command Post for getting ride of the Plugin
But re/read and just saw you found “Plugin Manager by Digital Rebellion”
At lest there is an end if not a happy end.
Thanks for your suggestion.
It turned out to be something different.
I had to go into the Settings in the inspector and set the color space override to REC 2020.
thanks all the same
Hi, hi FCPXers
Maybe some one can help me with this one. I have material from a Sony a7. I am using Edit ready to convert the original files to Pro Res HQ. We are filming in HD. And all looks OKish. But at the very latest when I import the files into FCPX something is very obviously wrong. Every thing gets a red tint, is too bright and seems fuzzy! Similar pictures in a different room where there is more light appear to be ok! Does any one have any idea what I am missing? I have analyse vide for balance colour switched off on import.
You could also look at some of the videos I have in a playlist here:
FCPX collaboration is something that I have been following very closely. Seems very nearly almost doable!
Use your ears is as good a Tip as you will get.
This is the best intro I know of with respect to LUFs:
Once you have the basic concepts you could also look at this:
There is a free version so you have nothing to lose.
In practice even trying really hard to mix consistently people often complain that either
a) I have Mixed the music to quietly compared to the Voice over
b) I have Mixed the music to loudly compared to the Voice over.
For general Sound Tutorials I find this pretty good:
I use SoundSoap which I can use as a stand alone App or inside FCPX. There are issues inside FCPX at the moment but it does as you describe. You could probably open it in Logic X? But would need to double check? There is a demo version.
I find the results from SoundSoap very good/easy to use (apart from install) and better than the alternative from Crumple Pop for eg.
A lot of people will probably recommend some thing from izotope.
With which i have had no experience.
all the best
Thanks for sharing your exchange with SoundSoap.
It confirms what I have experienced.
Yes and I had an email exchange with he developer from Klangfreund pre High Sierra days.
Where he complained that getting his plugin to work with FCPX was really hard.
Apparently it was much easier to get it to work with Pro Tools or what ever else it works in.
Seems to be a pity as there are so many incredible audio plugins out there….
Yes I have it working but it crashes every time I try to export.
Thus I use it as an external App.
i suspect that this is part of a bigger problem.
Ok, I figured it out.
Technically my mistake.
Not helped by dodgy documentation.
And counter productive support.
I had entered the serial in a demo version and assumed that this would just activate all the functionality.
What I should have done was:
Gone to the trouble to download the version linked in the purchase mail
In this purchase mail there was a serial number which as far as i can tell is just for my records.
(I see no where I can enter it and the software seems fully functional.
Having done so and restarting all is well and I can use this amazing piece of software in FCPX.
Also note it turns up in a section called Antares and not in Soundneess or SoundSoap!
It was painful but with it
This is a huge help.
I love this product but the guy at support does not seem to understand how plugins in FCPX work.
(Am using the version bought from there store and not from the App store/should work in FCPX)
The support guy keeps telling me to look in the inspector in the effects section.
I keep telling him that I do not see it turn up in the Effects Browser and thus ca not apply it.
We have being going around in circles for a week now!!!
Other people also seem to be confused:
It is such a shame about the "noise" in the communication as it is an amazing piece of software.
I have just purchased SoundSoup5, the stand alone edition. And love it. Have it working as a stand alone.
According to the site/promotion mail:
"SoundSoap 5 is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit hosts like Logic X, Final Cut Pro X, and ProTools 12. SoundSoap has an amazing user interface, including an improved high-resolution Wash Window."
Has anyone purchased this and got it to work in the current version of FCPX?
If so any tips for activating it SoundSoap in FCPX 10.4.2?
I am looking for Soundness/Soundsoap in the Audio Filter Browser in FCPX but no joy.
My guess is that this used to work but broke at some point and nobody at Antarestech really has this on their radar!?
Sadly Sound Soaps support keeos dropping the ball with respect to this...
thanks for any tips/clues in advance
With respect to Kyno I just love the way I get to numerous files on a drive with little hassle or effort. Most of my experience was with P2 cards last year.
To be honest it did not work all the time either. Depending on the flavor of P2.
And yes I also had the time code being reset to 0 as well.
The later is/was obviously a deal breaker in some cases.
I have the latest version 1.4ish so can check over the weekend.
I do not even know where Red Giant Offload is installed if at all. Probably on a laptop. To date I have been just dragging folders into Pluraleyes, clicking all the boxes and crossing my fingers. The thing is when things go wrong they seem to go horribly wrong. A case in point being our filming next to a huge TV tower!
Thank you for your reply.
If I am reading it correctly you are saying in your experience going from multicam/audio to FCPX via Sync N Link means:
- You lose the time the file was created/recorded as this becomes time re/wrapped reencoded.
+ You keep your track names aka iXML
+ You have things snyc
There are two things I still do not get:
1) to clarify when you say
thanks for your fast and detailed reply...
