FCP 3 and render issues and audio settings
 
I use Final Cut Pro 3.

When I move things around (like say a clip up or down) I have to re-render the entire sequence.

I noticed that this might be because the clips I was using were capture at 48 for audio, well the audio I was using to add music to the piece was at 44.1

Is this the reason for it?

If so, is there a way to capture audio at 48? I just imported it from iTunes?

Run the audio through QT Pro first and change the frequency. That should do the trick.

Boyd Ostroff November 3rd, 2003 05:15 PM

If I take something from a CD I generally drop it into a sequence with no video, render it, then export as a FCP movie without a video track. Then I use the resulting file as the audio track in my final sequence. This accomplishes the same thing that Jeff suggests, but can all be done within FCP. Your choice, both methods should work fine.

So there is no way to capture it at 48 simply using itunes or the like?

I dont' own quicktime pro.

Jeff Donald November 3rd, 2003 05:19 PM

QT Pro comes with FCP 3, check your QT registration. Or follow Boyd's suggestion and render and export as a movie.

Change your iTunes preferences to import and convert to 48khz AIFF at the same time.

As of FCP2 iTunes does a better conversion than FCP2.

Jeff Donald November 4th, 2003 05:51 AM

In my opinion QT Pro does a much better job than iTunes.

Glenn Chan November 4th, 2003 03:20 PM

I remember there was clearly an audible difference between FCP/Quicktime and iTunes converting from 44.1k wav to 48khz wav. You can hear it when there's clapping. It should be easy to compare the two, but I don't have a Mac right now.

One might also be faster.

Matthew Kaplan November 4th, 2003 04:14 PM

Okay I found my QuickTime Pro key.

How do you import a song, and then change it's frequency?

I obviously new to Quicktime Pro.

thank you.

Glenn Chan November 4th, 2003 04:22 PM

You can open the files in quicktime pro and then export.

In FCP you can do a batch export (multiple files) with file--> batch export.

Matthew Kaplan November 4th, 2003 05:09 PM

I see about the export option, and see how to chance the frequency, but what should I export it as?

there are many choices? Which one is best to use with Final Cut Pro 3?

mp4 don't seem to be recongized by FCP 3 i've noticed.

Thank you.

Glenn Chan November 4th, 2003 05:52 PM

AIFF or WAV format.

16bit stereo 48khz.

Thank you.
