Silverstack offers to export clips to Final Cut Pro X, including clip metadata and additional information.
Export FCPXML from Silverstack
Select the desired bin or multiple bins or folders from the Silverstack Library to export to Final Cut Pro X. Choose “Export to > Final Cut Pro X” via right click or use the “Export” button in the title bar of Silverstack to select “Final Cut Pro X”.
The will open a window where you can select or deselect clips from the bin that should be exported, followed by a dialog with export options:
- Scene, shot, and take name can be added to the name of the clip in Final Cut Pro X
- Camera, White Balance, Colorspace, Lookname, EI/ISO (ASA) as keywords
- Single-frame cue points from Silverstack are mapped to markers in Final Cut Pro X
- Multi-frame cue points from Silverstack are mapped to a clip range marked with a keyword in Final Cut Pro X
- Clips with rating “★” (one star) in Silverstack are marked as rejected in Final Cut Pro X.
The transfer via Final Cut Pro XML files (.fcpxml) always includes:
- Clip metadata for reel, scene, shot and camera name (if set in Silverstack)
- Clips marked as flagged in Silverstack are marked entirely as favorites in Final Cut Pro X
- “Comments” of clips will be taken over as “Notes” in Final Cut Pro X
You can either immediately open the selected clips in Final Cut Pro X or save them first as Final Cut Pro XML files.
Import FCPXML into Final Cut Pro X
When importing the XML file in Final Cut Pro X, a new event is created with one project for each bin accompanied by the source video and audio clips. Please note that audio clips are only exported via FCP XML if they were synced to video in Silverstack before.
