As long as the audio is PCM, mixed sample rates and bit rates in an FCP X project should not make any difference. The audio that X2Pro will put in the AAF is the same sample rate and bit rate as the clips are in FCP X. The project settings will not affect sample rates and bit rates in the AAF.

X2Pro will convert any audio that is not PCM (e.g. MP3) to PCM audio, during this conversion it will use whatever bit rate is set in the X2Pro preferences, the sample rate will remain unchanged.

I do not know of any product that will open an AAF that is not a audio or video editing package just to check the integrity. If you are able to provide a small AAF that you believe contains clips with the wrong sample rate, we could inspect it and tell you what we find?

BTW apart from a DAW are there any other small software apps that are good at checking the integrity of an AAF file.

if there is say one clip that is 44.1 will that have an impact? In the past we have project where the first clip was 44.1 and that impacted everything else. This time I know that the first clip is 48 (not sure about the rest). !

If everything is already 48kHz in the FCP X project, then X2Pro should just put it into the AAF at that sample rate.

I have previously been able to import a project with 24bit audio and end up with 16bit clips in Pro Tools. That was down to an import setting in Pro Tools. I guess the same can probably happen with the sample rate.

See the attached picture for where the bit rate and sample rate can be chosen on import.

Hi,

The project will have a mix of footage from canon C300 camera and also xdcam (sony) and maybe some converted 5D (converted to (prores) as well as music (CD's) resampled to 48KHz. . . .

is there any thing that has to be set up in protools before importing?

cheer angus

ps trying to get a demo copy to protools to test myself.

X2Pro should not be doing any re-sampling (or conversion of the bit depth) of PCM audio. Is the audio that you are using in your FCP X project PCM audio, or is it compressed in some way (e.g. MP3)?

Hi,

The project and the first clip are all at 48KHz but when the dubbing engineer is bring the AAF into protools he is saying that it is 44.1KHz. I'm not sure if there is protools set up that he is doing wrong?

cheers angus

ps the is on the latest versions of x2pro and FCP X
