Marquis’ new X2Pro5 software has been designed to integrate Final Cut Pro projects into a professional audio workflow, enabling Avid Pro Tools to be used for audio finishing. It works by converting the exported Final Cut Pro XML into an AAF file, which Avid Pro Tools can then open as a session, delivering seamless integration between the two applications.

Simple user interface
X2Pro5 features a straightforward user interface that's easy to customise, with four tabs for Project, Roles, Media Location and Options. All the information needed to run a job is contained within the user interface – choose whether to include disabled or inactive clips in the export, for example, or perhaps select the length of frame handles.
The Projects tab allows you to set which XML will be processed and where to create the outputted AAF. Simply drag and drop the required items into the respective section in the user interface.
X2Pro5 provides simple role management, allowing users to choose which roles to include or exclude, which sub roles to merge, and how roles should be ordered, along with global settings for quick selection.
X2Pro5 requires access to all the possible locations where media used within a project might be stored. To provide this, simply drag and drop locations into the window, or triple-click to remove an item.
Select any additional options here, including whether to embed media or reference paths to the media. X2Pro translates audio timelines with cuts, transitions, levels, gain, fade handles and compound clips.
