Marquis intros FCP X to Pro Tools conversion app

NASHVILLE — Marquis Broadcast (, a specialist in content workflows and media integration software, has introduced X2Pro Audio Convert, a new conversion application for delivering Final Cut Pro X projects to Avid Pro Tools for audio finishing.

X2Pro uses Marquis’ Media Highway, the core technology employed by Marquis’ media integration products, to integrate Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows. X2Pro converts 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. 

Using the enhanced metadata in XML 1.1 from Final Cut Pro X, X2Pro provides a high fidelity conversion to a Pro Tools session, with planned support for audio gain, transitions, and key frames. Taking advantage of the i 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 will be available at end of February, initially for $69.99 and later for $99.99.
