Last night I worked on this issue more and found what's causing the issue. I really can't explain why this is happening though, so maybe you might have some insight.
I use a plugin from Pixel Film Studios called FCPX Timer. I'm pulling in a basic timer called "Numeric Timer" from Titles and Generators. The Export XML works fine with the timer as long as I don't change the font (for example Avenir Next to Georgia). As soon as I change the font, it Export XML no longer works and produces the attached error when I hit save.
I ended up deleting the timer, re-adding it and re-configuring it, leaving the font unchanged so that I could save this template I created. I will just have to remember to change the font back when I import.
It's really disappointing to have to do this when I have paid all of this money. Oh well.
I have a project that I am trying to export the XML. When I select the option FCPX instantly crashes producing the attached report. How do I fix this? I tried copying the timeline content into a new library and project but I still get the same results.
Thank you for having a look at the file. I guess the door slam just inherently sounds bad, regardless, since it didn't clip. Out of curiosity and ignorance on my part, how did you see that it was not clipped after adjusting the gain?
I watched the referenced video a few days ago and was really excited by the results that Curtis got. In fact, it's one of the reasons I bought the MixPre. I've been trying other devices like the Tascam DR-100 M3, Zoom H6, etc, but as mentioned, clipping was always a big problem no matter how carefully I planned my walks. I was about to go the Sony recorder route so I'm glad I found people talking about the MixPre in the Sony reviews.
Last night, using the same mics and recorder that clipped when the door slammed, I yelled directly into the mic, which clipped to the extreme. All that could be heard was crackling, popping barely any scream. Took the 32 bit file into FCPX and adjusted the gain down and the volume up, and recovered the voice/yell perfectly. So I do seem to have extra dynamic range because the end result was a range that previously was not possible.
My question above was for someone to look at the door slamming clip and determine if the mic itself clipped. It was plugged into the AUX which provides less voltage to the mics, I will soon be feeding phantom power to them which will hopefully help with the range of the mic itself.
Obviously I don't want any clipping in the original recording, however I record continuous street walks and I never know what levels are going to be thrown at me. I like the 32 bit floating point technology as a safety net.
I just bought the MixPre-3 II for recording street walks to get a higher dynamic range by using 32 bit floating point. My normal workflow is sync audio to video in FCPX.
I was testing the unit with the Sound Professionals MS-EBH-2 binaural mic plugged into the AUX. I set the gain on the recorder to intentionally clip so I could try to remove the clipping in FCPX. At the beginning of the recording, a door slams and clips. When I apply the Levels effect to it and reduce the gain, it's still clipping. Did the mic itself clip? I am new to audio and looking for some help.
Can someone look at the attached file and let me know if this is the mic or me not understanding how to fix the clipping?
