I'm new to fcpx so I can't rule out user error but it wouldn't sync anything. Where as pluraleyes versions 1 partially synced them in fcp6. I was also testing pluraleyes 3. That worked the best but wouldn't import into fcp6 got a xml error. This might be because upgrading to Yosemite broke xml. I see that newer has an audio replace feature ppl were talking about.

Re: Syncing Audio

I synced a GoPro with audio from a small recorder on a boat and was amazed that FCP-X was able to sync all six clips despite the sound of the engine and the usual muted audio of an encased GoPro.

I posted this elsewhere on the forum, but here's the result with one of the clips.

Re: Syncing Audio

This is totally OT, but.......If I found a life preserver in open water I would have spent at least a few minutes looking around the area to see if anything else was floating nearby. You obviously assumed it blew out of a boat which it probably did....but hey, it IS a life preserver.

Re: Syncing Audio

We did look. And I radioed it in to the USCG, too.

I had to stop playing around with trying to do a sync multiclip so I could get this out.

Re: Syncing Audio

I figured things:
1. Using Fcp6 I extracted the board/shotgun audio from the primary camera movie and exported a stereo pair audio file for each.

2. After I entered the clips angle field fcpx synced it (missed this step before).
In the timeline I used the extracted audio in the previous step, enabling me adjust/mix the ambient and board feed independently.

I really love how fcpx audio level adjustment works. Color of the wave form indicates problem areas and selecting range tool creates the keyframes automatically. So much quicker.
