(March 21, 2012) Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software, has announced the immediate availability of X2Pro Audio Convert, its new cutting edge conversion application for delivering Final Cut Pro X projects to Avid Pro Tools for audio finishing.
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. In this way, X2Pro provides a smooth workflow between Final Cut Pro X and Avid Pro Tools, allowing users to take full advantage of the functionality of these world-class products now and in the future.
“I chose X2Pro for a short film I was working on that needed a lot of audio work and it easily handled my project’s more than 32 audio tracks,” said James Gribbins, director/DP of Gribbins Films. “I think that all professional editors who use Final Cut Pro X and Pro Tools should get this plugin — it's an essential part of my workflow."
“X2PRO was a key piece of the puzzle that allowed us to maintain our in-house workflow,” Brian Gonose, Electric Entertainment.
Using the enhanced metadata in XML 1.1 from Final Cut Pro X, X2Pro provides a high fidelity conversion to a Pro Tools session, with planned support for audio gain, transitions, and key frames. Taking advantage of the innovative metadata-based organizing features in Final Cut Pro X, unlimited numbers of audio roles in Final Cut Pro X are converted into Pro Tools tracks, allowing sound designers and mixers to start working immediately.
X2Pro is available now as a digital download from the Mac App Store at an introductory discount price of $69.99 for the next 30 days, compared to a list price of $99.99. For further information please see: http://www.x2pro.net
