Death of Aperture-FCPX Next?

One thing I had trouble with, or almost forgot: if you install FCP Studio before FCPX, also remember to install the UPDATES of the FCP Studio before you install FCPX. And you have to get them manually
Why FCPX (Master File default) force or just exporting audio to 128kbps? (Compressor too) while source is 256kbps?

Re: Why FCPX (Master File default) force or just exporting audio to 128kbps? (Compressor too) while source is 256kbps?
by Mathieu Ghekiere 3 months ago
How are you exporting your Master file You are taking about An mp4, which is compressed. Try exporting An Apple ProRes. Or create your own setting in Compressor, and use it in FCPX.
