Marquis has announced that X2Pro Audio Convert, which integrates Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows, is a big hit with Trailer Park Boys. The popular Netflix show which follows the misadventures of three longtime pals and petty serial criminals running scams from their Nova Scotia trailer park, is edited by Jeremy Harty, supervising editor for Trailer Park Boys and Swearnet.com.
Harty, owner & manager of Nova Scotia based Digiboyz, explained: “Trailer Park Boys has been using Final Cut Pro X and X2Pro Audio convert for four seasons now. It has helped our sound post so much we couldn’t imagine not using it. Simple, fast, and accurate. All you want in a post workflow.”
X2Pro works by integrating Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows, converting the exported Final Cut Pro X XML into an AAF file, which Avid Pro Tools can open as a session, delivering seamless integration between the two applications. X2Pro provides a high fidelity conversion to a Pro Tools session, with support for audio gain and key frames. Taking advantage of the innovative metadata-based organizing features in Final Cut Pro X, unlimited numbers of audio Roles in Final Cut Pro X are converted into Pro Tools tracks, allowing sound designers and mixers to start working immediately.
X2Pro uses Marquis’ Media Highway, the core technology employed by Marquis’ media integration products to integrate Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows. The most recent version of X2Pro has been updated in terms of its file reading capability, in order to support more formats and releases from Apple, while keeping all existing functionality intact.
Chris Steele managing director confirms: “Marquis is focused on designing solutions to smooth workflows and increase ease of use. X2Pro allows users to take full advantage of the functionality of two world-class products, so editors can concentrate on the core business of creativity and finalising the end programme.”
