Phil G. Giriodi created a new topic ' Import audio only or video only or both?' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Using FCP-X 10.3.4 on an iMac with OS 10.14.6. Reluctant to upgrade due to losing too many other software programs if I do upgrade. The problem: I have spent the better part of 2 hours plus referencing 2 FCP manuals but cannot find how to import 'only audio' or 'only video' or a combination of both. Your guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Phil G. Giriodi replied to the topic 'Dynamic mic record live to FCP Timeline' in the forum. 2 months ago

In desperation I purchased a Cardioid mic with a USB connector thinking that this might be the problem. Not the problem. To repeat: I do receive an audio track on the timeline but there is no signal on it. This is the case even when attempting to use the iMac's internal mics. All of my preference setting are as the screen-grab above indicate. Any additional thought would be most appreciated. Thanks.

I have checked my audio preferences, my new XLR to USB cable, my RE-50 mic with a preamp and nothing will provide me with an audio track in the timeline. I merely get a blank track, no signal. I then attempted to use the iMac's internal mics but encountered the same problem. This should be a very simple procedure....mic to USB to computer to timeline. Any more suggestions? I will check this forum again in the morning with the hope that there is an answer. Thank you all.

Thank you for your response. Yes, precisely. Exactly as your screen-grab indicates. I get a blank audio track on the timeline but no audio. I also closed FCP and then reopened it again. So in order to continue with my project I am going to use an external SD card recorder and then transfer the audio track directly to the timeline.

Thank you for your response to my question regarding recording VO in the timeline of FCP. I will check my audio settings in Preferences. This must be where the problem lies since I am also unable to use the internal mics on my iMac. I was also informed on this forum that I must use a preamp on my RE-50 mic.

Thanks again.

Thank you for your response. You answered a vital part of my question requiring a preamp. This I shall do.

I must add that an audio track is recorded onto the timeline, however, the track itself does not contain any audio. This is the case with both the internal mics and the external RE-50 mic.

Thanks for your response. I will send you a screen shot soon. I feel that something is missing in my FCP setup since my internal iMac mics also do not respond. I use a new XLR to USB mic cable going directly into my iMac 27".

Thanks for your response.

My RE-50 dynamic mic is connected to an XLR in turn to a USB into an USB hub. The hub mike make the difference, however, my internal mics on my iMac 27" will not record onto the FCP timeline either.

I have attempted several times to record a live voice track to the timeline in FCP using a dynamic RE-50 microphone but to no avail. I have followed the procedure according to the manual. Is a preamp required?

What am I missing?

Thanks for your assistance.

Phil G. Giriodi created a new topic ' iMac & FCP-X window on right side of Mac' in the forum. 1 year ago

When editing with FCP-X using my iMac and the track pad I cannot keep that window on the far right (stock market, etc) from entering the frame when I attempt to push the timeline to the left. I cannot find a 'defeat' solution to keep this from happening. It is most annoying. is there a method to defeat this?

Thanks for our input.

Phil G. Giriodi created a new topic ' Unable to get color wheel to full black.' in the forum. 2 years ago

I have been given a title to super over a scene. The title was created in PhotoShop with a black background. I placed the title over the proper scene, added keying but I am unable to get the color wheel to a full black in order to eliminate the black BG in the tile. I have checked all of the manuals and also searched the Internet but to no avail.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Phil G. Giriodi created a new topic ' Backup of library HD' in the forum. 2 years ago

I made a clone of my library HD as suggested by forum members using Carbon Copy Cloner. Now I am hesitant to use Time Machine on my iMac for fear of backing up to the wrong HD. I normally use Time Machine to back up my computer's main HD.

There is no indication as there is on CCC as to which HD is to be copied to which HD. I have 4 projects in various stages of completion and can't afford to lose them.

Is it possible for Time Machine to backup from one external HD to another external HD?

Again thank you for your response and guidance.

Phil G. Giriodi created a new topic ' Hard drive backup' in the forum. 2 years ago

I am presently running FCP-X with a 3TB external HD for library and backups. Eventually all HD's will fail. Therefore, if I purchase another 3TB HD and transfer all files from one HD to the other will the second HD act as though it were the original HD?

Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge.
