Great tutorial, short and to the point, thanks Dan.

Producciones Cocada says:

thanks.. very useful tutorial… maybe you could export the movie direct from logic to your desktop.. I want to know your opinion about it.. 

Three Anchors of Truth says:

Nice tutorial,but where did you open the movie from?

Roy Tighe says:

Hi It’s not working for me. I’m running FCPX 10.09 and Logic X 10.0.1. All the files import as a bunch of duplicates and most of them are greyed out. Any solutions?

Smoky Mountain Adventures says:

thanks for the concise lesson! Make a video about syncing and matching recorded audio back to the video via timecode

Nicholas Zimmerman says:

Dan, you’re very lucky that your sequence made it intact. I’ve had 0 luck going into Logic X using plain XML. I sound design in ProTools and my composer uses Logic and the best workflow we’ve figured out is to use X2Pro for AAF generation. I’m hoping the new version of FCPX has some of Logic’s features (Track Stacks for Roles…) and that XML roundtripping will be more stable. Both Resolve and Smoke 2013 work very well with FCPXML, but not Logic yet, at least not from my tests.

FunandJoyMedia says:

Thanks so much Dan – so i can´t find a way to export fcpx 10.0.9 to xml for logic 9 ? I think there is a way but he tld me that i first have to save all the media files ??

33Gustav says:

Great tutorial! You should make a more in depth tutorial on how to work in logic pro with film sound

Will Vernon says:

I’m not having such success. It’s not translating properly at all. Anyone else having this issue?

Schoenstatt Puerto rico says:

yes please!how to! fcpx score etc!

Dreux Benson says:

Very useful

Emiliano KORE says:

this is almost like exporting an “omf” and bouncing after in logic and then going back to the editing software…. i heard it was realtime kind of “rewire” connection… this aint much of a feature yet…. :-/

great work keep it up!

sick Session keep it up.

Florian Fahrenberger says:

I would absolutely love some more Logic tutorials! I have worked on pure audio projects with Logic Pro 9, and on video projects with FCP7 and mostly FCPX. Only once have I imported a movie and created a score in Logic, and it was quite some work to figure it out. I think it would be really helpful. Especially now, since Logic isn’t expensive anymore (yeah, I still bought my version boxed pre-App-Store, very expensive). I’ll probably get LPX very soon…

The Christian Filmmakers says:

Yes, More FCPX to Logic Tutorials!!

Humphrey Rodriguez says:


Bigwena Wena says:

Tim Delaney says:

Thanks for the tutorial, more on LPX and FCPX integration and useful tips will be great.
