Final Cut Pro 5.0.6 vs. ProTools issue

Please let someone have dealt with this already....I haven't used my Final Cut software in awhile but I am finding that everytime I start up it takes forever. mainly because it is trying to access the audio plug-ins that I use in ProTools. They have their own folder in the DigiDesign portion of my computer, but Final Cut insists on trying to use them. How do I stop this?
Thanks for any help you may have.

I don't recall how this was dealt with, but I do recall discussions about it. Use the search to find something appropriate like:
audio AND plugins AND protools
or something similar...
Search is your friend.

  • Export a Final Cut Pro XML file problem about translation issue

    When I export the final cut pro xml file, there is always translation issue like that 'Transition <....> not translated, Cross Dissolve used instead.'
    Most of the transition type can cause the translation issues except the wipe and cross dissolve.
    Is there any body knowing the reason? Is that OK?
    By the way , I am using the trial version of cs5

    Hey Ani_,
    I've been working with Adobe products for a long time and typically when you come across an error that has anything to do with a XML file export problem its due to things such as effects you may have added in, color corrections, cross fades or any type of video transitions between clips. Remember your work flow should be
    Import your footage into Premiere Pro
    Name your clips (helps find things later on)
    Place clips on time line in the order you wish (ONLY MAKE CUTS don't add anything, transitions color effects nothing)
    Then once your clips are all placed on the timeline in your correct order you then EXPORT> Final Cut Pro XML
    Now you can bring this into other programs for color grading or whatever else your going to do.  You will notice you have no errors on the export.
    Once your done doing what your doing to the clips in another program (for example: Divinci Resolve color grading) you can then export them back to your main project then add your effects and transitions.

  • FINAL CUT PRO 5.1.4 Sync (Drifting) Issues shot with Canon XL2

    So basically I am still having trouble with audio sync drifting and I captured the footage correctly using the 2:3:3:2 pull down 24p and 48khz. Any suggestions anyone else can give me? The last fella suggested that I should CHANGE the speed of the audio track to match up with the video track but I don't want a percentage of change in the way the audio sounds like even though it is very SMALL. Any suggestions I would very much appreciate. Thanks.

    Butting in where might not be helpful…
    The Canon DV and FW protocols are weird.
    Here's what a buddy of mine has been doing for many years:
    a. Place the long clip in the timeline.
    b. Unlink the audio and video tracks in the timeline.
    c. Select the audio clip and scrub till the end of the sound is reached. Hopefully this is eaisly matched to the video clip. Trim to that point.
    d. Select the video clip and match the outpoint to the same frame of action (helps if there's a specific sound like a clap or a notebook being closed or someone's voice). Now choose Speed and wirte down the exact length of the clip.
    e. Select the audio clip and choose Speed and enter the exact time of the video clip. Render.
    f. Relink the two tracks which are now exactly the same length.

  • Final Cut Pro 5.1.4 - HD 1920 issue

    Hi,
    I am trying to bring in HD footage shot on a Nikon D5100 into FCP 5.1.4. The footage appears to be 1920 x 1080, 25fps, H.264, Square pixel. I can't seem to find a sequence preset that would match that? The nearest is 1440 x 1080, which doesn't look right and every file needs to be rendered every time I bring it in, which is incredibly dull..
    Have I missed a setting?
    I'm also wondering as a second point. I need to mix some HD footage as above with some SD footage. I'm assuming that if i keep to the HD settings if I can, when I bring in the SD it will just look like SD on an HD screen, ie its not going to magically become higher quality, but it wont look any worse that it already did?
    Thanks

    The only option for full raster 1920x1080 in 5.1 is Uncompressed HD. And not only will that take up a LOT of drive space, but you'll need a very fast RAID array to play it.
    The only other HD formats it worked with were HD (1440x1080), DVCPRO HD (1280x1080)...and Apple Intermediate Codec (1440x1080), which is really only there as a stop gap for HDV. Quality stinks.
    You are using 8-9 year old software...one at the cusp of the HD revolution. It doesn't have many options.
    >I'm assuming that if i keep to the HD settings if I can, when I bring in the SD it will just look like SD on an HD screen, ie its not going to magically become higher quality, but it wont look any worse that it already did?
    Correct...but worse. Because you will be blowing up the image to 10x it's original size. Any pixels or artifacts inherent in it will be magnified too.  For good looking SD blown up to HD, you need to:
    1) Use a Terranex to upconvert. This is the best option...external hardware.
    2) Use an AJA Kona 2-3 card to upconvert. It is basically a mini Terranex.
    3) Use Instant HD from redgiantsoftware to do the upconvert. But will it work on the old computer and OS running FCP 5.1? Have any compatible settings?  Not sure.
    4) Use Compressor to do the upconvert.
    5) Use Adobe Premiere to do the upconvert. I've used CS6 for this, and it's just below the Kona in quality, but above Compressor and InstantHD. 

  • Final Cut Pro X Stuck at 0% when Sharing

    Hey guys,
    Having issues with my final cut pro x in regards to sharing. Anytime I share a project, either with my custom compressor setting or with default share settings it gets stuck at Zero% then I have to restart the computer, click share again and then it works.
    I've already deleted the basic final cut pro plist files User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.FinalCut.plist & com.apple.FinalCut.LSSharedFileList.plist, Restarted machine and same issue occurs. I've even run all the final cut pro x updates and still same issue.
    Anyone have any ideas on what could be causing the share function to get stuck at 0%?
    Thanks

  • Final Cut Pro X CRASHES every time I try to add a transition

    G'day - just wondering if anyone with this issue has found a solution ? Have seen some scatterings regarding this issue - but no real solutions. It's doing my head in - just trying to add a simple cross disolve will crash it everytime. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

    Well, this actually got me somewhere!  Thanks so much, I can limp along now.
    I'm an audio guy by trade, so I had a ton of plugins installed.  Apparently, FCPx is just a poorly designed and inept at handling audio components.  All of my plugins are updated and 64-bit compliant, but apparently FCPx just can't handle audio components.  They all work fine in ProTools and Logic Pro X, but cause Final Cut Pro X to crash instantly.  They have to be removed from the Audio Components folder altogether for FCPx to run.  Even the brand new Waves bundles I just bought.
    It's frustrating that the only thing you can use in the plugin section are Apple's built-in utilities, but I can make do for now until I learn a replacement for FCPx.
    Thanks for the insight!

  • Sync problem w/ DVD from Final Cut Pro X

    My project is a 2-hour play.  I improved the audio in ProTools then dragged it back into FCP.  I was able to get the improved audio to sync perfectly with the video (both are 48K), then mute the original audio.  I checked the whole 2-hour play for sync.  I burned a DVD, played it on my DVD player, and the audio gets ahead of the video around the 30 minute mark and keeps drifting.  Several DVD burns yield the same problem.  Any advice?

    Thanks Russ.  OK, I am now rendering again via Compressor 4, this time I have 2 files in one tab - 1) a MPEG-2 and 2) an AC3 file.  Seems to make sense.
    To burn the DVD immediately after, I added a 'Job Action' to 'Create DVD' after the render, and the dialog confuses me.  No problems with the 'Job Action' tab, but the "A/V Attributes" tab indicates the follwing:
    Type:  Final Cut Pro.app  (shouldn't this be a reference to the rendered file/s?)
    Video - showing the same dimensions of my FCPx Project file (NTSC  ..640 x 480)  instead of the MPEG-2 (Pal ...720 x 576).
    Audio - Properties show Linear PCM... 6 channels, etc... not the AC3 file.
    My question is, how do I create a DVD from the newly rendered files output from Compressor - is the Job Action the way to do it, and if so, how do I get it to reference the new files?
    Thanks,
    Geoff

  • Final Cut Pro X Crashes Every Time I Select Effects Browser

    Hi,
    I'm a novice FCPx user that works at a non-profit, and I do some light video work.  I'm running FCPx on a MacBook Pro Retina 2.3GHz i7 with 16GB Ram, OS X 10.10.1.
    Every time I click on the Effects Browser, FCPx crashes.  As is to add insult,  if it crashes in this manner I ALWAYS have to use PrefMan to delete preference files to even get FCPx to open without sticking on "Restoring Window Layout".
    I'm incredibly frustrated, nobody can seem to diagnose the issue, and it renders this application worse than useless.  Should I abandon ship and direct our organization to purchase copies of Adobe Premiere Pro for other editing machines, or is this an isolated issue that can be fixed?
    Thanks for any help you might be able to give!

  • Merging Logic and Final Cut Pro

    I'm a long time Logic user but new to Final Cut Pro. The perspective of a convergence between those two applications boggles my mind. Just would like to know whether there is a forum where I can discuss about this topic.
    Have a nice day

    Assuming you talk about Final Cut Pro X, it provides a new way of handling audio, based on Metadata (i.e. Roles). However it still misses some tight integration with an audio post production app (like Soundtracks Pro before).
    I wouldn't be surprised if the rumored Logic X will provide that integration and a shift to "metadata based mixing". That for sure would stir up the DAW playing field a bit.
    A tighter video integration on the Logic side is long overdue and they have to do something about it anyway. Not only is video export not possible in 64bit mode, Cubase allows mutliple video clips on a Project and ProTools has now an even tighter integration with Avid, so Logic is falling way behind in that sector.
    Hope that helps

  • Final Cut Pro 5.x compatible with Leopard?

    Sorry if this has been asked loads of times but I could not find the posts here.
    Does anyone know if Final Cut Pro 5.x and DVD Studio Pro 4.x are compatible with Leopard?
    Thanks,
    Rob

    I don't know what terms you ** SEARCHED **
    But the list referenced above (click on the term searched) has quite a few.
    If you work with FCP/ Logic/ ProTools, etc in any professional capacity, you may want to wait until the fallout settles. This is especially true if you use 3rd party cards & drivers. Otherwise, get a new drive and install everything from scratch.

  • Mini-Dvi to Video out from Final Cut Pro working

    Thanx Everybody for posting reply for my post regarding running video out to external TV from Final Cut Pro in MacBook.
    It's working fine.

    @ Studio X : The files were originally created with Final Cut Pro, rendered out to QuickTime, then are being played back with Final Cut Pro. The file that has the most noticable studdering is a 60-minute timeline sequence in Final Cut. All files are being stored and played back from the Mac Mini's internal hard drive. Everything was originally shot on DV and formatted for a 4:3 aspect ratio.
    @ Shane Ross : Are there any settings in the MacOS or FCP where I can improve the HDMI video signal? Or do you know of / have any experience with Firewire to HDMI converters? Unfortunately, my new signal path relies on HDMI from the video playback.
    My current setup uses the Firewire output, which is then converted to composite video & analog audio using a pair of ageing DV tape decks. That setup is becoming troublesome due to age.

  • How to use Final Cut Pro with multiple user accounts?

    Hi,
    I want to use Final Cut Pro on a clean user account. How do I set it up? How can I access my old FCP library and still work on it from multiple users?
    Also, I want my DropBox account to back-up my media. Any tips?

    I use external drives as backup. But I don't trust them. And in case of fire or what ever...It is of no use...
    But I agree on your comment about DropBox. It would have been the perfect solution though.
    What else is there?
    I have a 2TB HD but these projects are huge and still growing - so I have to move my projects to several external drives. So maybe I should just work directly from external drives and skip the partition of the computers main drive? I am thinking of the disadvantage of reducing the total storage of the disk.
