Logic Pro X 10.3.2 update sees Final Cut Pro X interchange improvements

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

It looks like the Logic Pro team are spending time making it work better with Final Cut Pro X. Logic Pro X was updated to version 10.3.2 yesterday. In the extensive list of new features and bug fixes, here are the points related to Final Cut:

  • When importing Final Cut Pro XML projects containing multichannel audio files, Logic Pro now reliably maintains channel assignments.
  • Large Final Cut Pro XML files now load more quickly.
  • Final Cut Pro X XML files now reliably import with the correct Sub-Role Names.
  • Logic Pro now creates a Summing Stack for each Parent Role when importing FCPX XML files.

I don't use Final Cut to Logic workflows, so I can’t say how reliable Logic is when interpreting Final Cut XML. It seems that the Logic team are more like the Adobe Premiere team when it comes to implementing features: don't wait until a feature is perfect, get it in, then make it better based on user feedback.

If you have bought Logic Pro X, the update is from the Mac App Store.
