“R3D is a proprietary multimedia audio/video file format owned by the Red Digital Cinema Camera Company and features lossy compression for video contents and lossless for audio contents,” explains Neil Attard, Director New Products, Marquis Broadcast.
“X2Pro Audio Convert 2.1.9 will now allow media from Red Digital cameras to be exported from FCPX to Pro Tools for audio finishing for the first time. “X2Pro uses Marquis’ Media Highway, the core technology employed by Marquis’ media integration products to integrate Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows, delivering seamless integration between the two applications,” continues Attard. “X2Pro Audio Convert 2.1.9 is aimed at Professional users of audio and video and comes with new features delivering more control, faster turnaround, smaller AAF files and better laid out tracks in your DAW.”
Additional features in the latest version of X2Pro include the provision for muted clips in FCP X to be either muted or excluded from the AAF file via an option in X2Pro's Preferences, plus the functionality which enables X2Pro to remember the state of roles (which roles are excluded and their order) between sessions.
