How to correct over modulation in Final Cut Pro

I recently filmed one of my friends who was performing magic tricks in front of a live audience. I put on a wireless mic on him and recorded it directly into my camcorder. During the recording, the audio seemed slightly over-modulated but it didn't appear too bad.
However, when I returned home and began the editing process, I noticed that the over modulation of his voice as well as the crowd's laughter became really apparent. I tried using the 'Apply Normalization Gain' feature to the audio track but it merely made the entire track softer.
What other ways can I correct this to make it sound normal?

Have a look at The Levelator
It won't magically "fix" clipped audio (over modulation) but it will allow you to easily balance your otherwise fluctuating levels.

  • How to import MXF files to Final Cut Pro with smooth editing

    Summary: Follow this tutorial to learn how to import and edit MXF files in Final Cut Pro by converting MTS to FCP native format.
    If you have a Panasonic P2, Canon XF or Sony XDCAM series camcorder,
    you may be familiar with Material eXchange Format (MXF). Though MXF is a
    great video format to record high-definition videos, it is not easy to
    use in that they are not natively supported by most NLE systems like
    Final Cut Pro. In order to import MXF to FCP for editing, the easy workaround is to transcode MXF files to FCP compatible video formats.
    Along with some help from a top MXF Converter, it can be done. To
    help those who wanna edit MXF files in FCP without problems, here I
    share with you a simple guide on how to convert MXF files to edit in
    Final Cut Pro 6/7 or FCP X.
    First of all, downloading the App- Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac
    Overall, the program is a professional yet easy-to-use MXF Converter
    on Mac (Mavericks included) which can not only convert XF100, Canon
    C300, XF105 and XF305, Panasonic P2 recorded MXF files, but also provide
    simple video editing functions for you. The MXF to FCP Converter not
    only can convert MXF to ProRes for FCP, but also can transcode MXF
    videos for editing in Avid MC, Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie, FCE, etc.
    Just download it and follow the tutorial below to get the work done.
    Transcoding (P2) MXF files to ProRes for Final Cut Pro 6/7/X
    1. Import MXF files to the converter
    Launch the best MXF to FCP Converter, and then click the “add files” button to browse and import MXF videos from your camcorder or hard drive.
    2. Select FCP editable format
    Click the Format bar, and move mouse cursor to choose “Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” as output format.
    Tips:
    a. Settings- click to set video
    resolution(1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate (from 1Mbps to
    20Mbps), frame rate (24p/30p)
    b. Editor (next to “Add” icon)- click to set deinterlace, trim, crop, add effect, attach subtitles, etc
    3. Start transcoding MXF video to FCP
    Click “Convert” button to start converting MXF files to Apple ProRes
    MOV for FCP 6/7/X under Mac OS. Once the MXF to ProRes 422 conversion
    is done, you can transfer MXF footage into Final Cut Pro (X) for editing
    smoothly on Mac with ease.

  • I need help. How to export split track for Final Cut Pro 7 Thanks

    I need help. I have edited a film and now the company I have made the film for want a split track of it. I have no idea how to export a split track off Final Cut Pro 7 and I need simple language to explain it to me as I am a beginner. Thanks

    I assume you have multiple tracks of audio? And the audio is distributed discretely over these tracks (sync sound on tracks 1 and 2, sound effects on tracks 3 and 4, music on tracks 5 and 6 for example)?
    Then duplicate your sequence by clicking on the icon for your sequence in the FCP browser and control-clicking on it. From the drop-down menu choose Duplicate. Double click on the duplicate sequence you just created to load it to the timeline and canvas.
    Now, working on the copy you just made of your finished sequence, click anywhere on the timeline, and type Command + 0 {zero} to bring up your sequence settings. Click on the Audio Outputs Tab.
    Once the Audio Output Tab opens, set the Outputs to the desired number of discrete tracks you want to export - in this case I will set it to 8, as I have sync sound on tracks 1 & 2, Voice Over on tracks 3 & 4, Sound Effects on tracks 5 & 6 and Music on tracks 7 & 8.
    Once I do that the 8 tracks appear. I set them all to Dual Mono as I want them to be discrete tracks:
    Once I am done, I click OK and return to the far left side of the timeline where the audio selectors are, and carefully control - clicking in the empty space above the lock symbol,
    From the drop down menu I assign the output of each track - track 1 to to output track 1, track 2 to output track 2, doing so to each track:
    You need to set the output for each track. Once all my track assignments are done, I go to the menu File > Export . . . > QuickTime Movie and export my sequence, but now it is exporting with 8 discrete tracks of audio.
    To do a quick check that everything is OK, re-import the movie you just exported back into FCP, and open it in the Viewer and you will see that it does indeed have the multi-tracks, as 8 mono track tabs appear at the top of the viewer.
    Now give that QuickTime a name that includes "Split Tracks" in the title and copy it to your delivery drive.

  • How do I capture HDV in Final Cut Pro 6.0.6 from a Sony HDR-CX360?

    Hi. I recently upgraded to a Sony HDR-CX360 Camera. I've been importing off of Firewire with my older cameras. Now I face only being able to import with USB. It is not recognizing the camera. How do I import with this kind of camera and Final Cut Pro 6.0.6.? It works fine with iMovie.

    Hi,
    There are a couple of things I would do in your position .. first off make sure the camera is turned on and connected BEFORE I start FCP. another would be to run up system profiler and have a look in FireWire - and see (obviously with the camera connected) is it listed in there .. If not in effect the MAC is not seeing the camera and Failing that if it is a six pin on the camera connect to a six pin port .. I had issues with a Camera (Canon XHA1s) which the MAC Pro FireWire (8 pin) would not list the camera until I installed an two port 6 pin FireWire card .. It works every time now. Hope you get it sorted ..

  • How many computers can I load Final Cut Pro on

    If I purchase Final Cut Pro x how many computers can I load it on? Can I put it on my desk top and lap top?

    In regards to FCP X on more than one computer --- currently with the older versions of FCP, if I try to launch FCP on a 2nd computer (that I own) it prompts me that I cannot launch the application on more than one computer at the same time.   Does this prompt appear in FCP X as well if two computers try to use FCP X at the same time?

  • HOW TO Delete Unused Media from FINAL CUT PRO

    *HOW TO DELETE UNUSED MEDIA FROM HARD DRIVE IN FINAL CUT PRO.* Keywords: disk disc drive space remove compressor
    SUMMARY:
    Say your original clip is 10 gigs, you can use only what you need and delete the rest from your hard drive. I know people on the forums say to just buy another hard drive, NO! It took 2 days to figure out but here it is!!! Email me if needed at [email protected]
    QUESTION:
    I captured 1 hour of video at a time and now want to delete from my hard drive all the parts I don’t want to use. I have 300GB of junk on my hard drive and I only want to use a few scenes using a few megabytes, so that I'll get most of my 300GB back!!!!
    ANSWER:
    In final cut on Mac, click on one small clip (to get familiar with process), go to “file”, “export”, then “using compressor”. This will open compressor software. Your file will open in the left top window. Then you need to batch the job or jobs. IMPORTANT: I’ve also solved the Compressor problem when you press “submit” to a batch and it states “Cluster: None”. Search forum for “In compressor you experience what I have”.
    <Edited by Moderator>

    Part of the problem could lie in the fact it's an imovie project coming into FCP, wouldn't rule that out. Second my be the terms you use and what you expect to happen. For example, a subclip is just a smaller clip subbed from a larger clip. It has nothing to do with media management. But you can media manage a subclip and delete the unused media.
    Try this (be sure to back up the original clip first). take a long clip into the viewer, make an IN and OUT duration of like 30 frames and then subclip that, Modify > Make Subclip. a new subclip will appear in the browser with a torn clip icon and the name Subclip. Right click on the subclip and choose Media Manager.... Check the Delete unused media from duplicated clip. As you toggle that the green Modified bar at the top change from the full clip size to a tiny modified size. If it does not then one of two things ... user error or the system is screwed up. That's the easiest way to test media manager.

  • How do I recover a lost Final Cut Pro X file?

    Help!  I was just working on a huge project Final Cut Pro when the computer completely froze, no spinning ball of death or anything.  I'd already had one crash earlier, but that was just the typical "(Not Responding)" you might get when working on an entry level computer.  On complete freeze crash, I couldn't get the computer to show any signs of response, so I finally hard reset it.  I have an external screen running, and my projects are on an external hard drive.  When I opened the computer and Final Cut Pro, my event was there, but there is no project to be seen.  I can't find it anywhere.  I've spent somewhere around 4 hours on this at the least, and hope I don't have to start the whole thing over, since I have a deadline.  Is there any way to recover it?  I looked at the other discussions, but I don't know where I would find the project file on my computer.  I'm running Final Cut Pro X 10.2.2.

    Never mind, I just figured it out.  The open library from backup was greyed out a minute ago, now it worked though, and I have my project back.  Whew!  Just go to file/open library/from backup.  You just have to have the library you want the backup of to be selected.

  • How do I center text in Final cut Pro?

    Hi, does anyone know how to directly center text with more than one line of text in Final Cut Pro?
    If I have more than one line it doesn't seem to center properly. I've tried wireframe (which is inaccurate), center values (which doesn't work) and Boris 3D (which does the job but the space between letters isn't accurate so I need to try an alternative method).
    Any ideas?

    In Title 3D you use the Position X/Y button to adjust the height. The spacing between the letters in Title 3D can be adjusted both in tracking and in kerning by placing the cursor between a letter pair. Title 3D is perhaps one of the most accurate and precise text positioning titlers available in any software.

  • How can i import old projects (Final Cut Pro 10) to the new (final cut pro 10.1.1)?

    Hi everyone,
    I have a folder full of backup projects and events of Final Cut Pro X.
    Now, I have Final Cut Pro 10.1.1 and I don't know how to use those projects, since they were in a different folder.
    Yhanks very much
    Bruno

    I'm assuming these are on a secondary drive. At the drive's root level make folders called Final Cut Projects and Final Cut Events. Move the projects and events you want to work with into those folders. In FCP use File>Update projects and events. Select the drive you want to update and FCP will update the projects and events in those folders. Save the originals as backups.

    Unless you own and control the machines, you need to buy separate copies.

  • How to export flv file from Final Cut Pro?

    I'm using Final Cut Pro and try to export edited video in "Flv" format. However, there is no such choice and only "Flc" available? My friend has the same version of Final Cut Pro and there is "Flv" format to choice, why?

    I use QT conversion: file > Export > Using QuickTime Conversion >
    Then, under Format I only have "3G, AIFF, FLC, iPod, QuickTime Movie...", no "Flash video (FLV)" as my friend's computer?
