Problem with Audio in FCP X.
Nic Coury, Photographer

->> Hey everyone,

I've been working on a video project in FCP and I'm editing my audio and for some reason when I send it to compressor or just export it, the audio sounds different.

In the editor itself, the audio and clean and not noisy and cirsp—how I want it to sound—but when I sent the video to compressor, the audio sounds crunchier and it's a bit muffled.

I really haven't edited it at all as it was pretty cleanly recorded. Any idea why it changes so drastically?

Thanks.

->> Nic, first thought your setting in Compressor could be the 'problem'. You probabaly recorded .wav and that sounded clean. Compressor audio settings could be at like .mp3 96kbps, etc...

What I do is export the timeline as is, then use MPEG Streamclip to do the crunching. Audio is left uncompressed and as is from the timeline.

Hope this helps as I know others will chime in...

->> Nic, I'm with Andrew. Go check the audio compression settings. I'm guessing Compressor is compressing the life out of your audio file in order to make a really small file.

Do a test and export it from compressor into a pro res setting. The default audio compression settings for that codec should yield a great audio file. If this tests yields great sounding audio then you know what I wrote at the top of my post is correct.

->> @Guy,

I think it was the file format that was imported into FCP and my guess is that it got compressed to hell when I exported it, giving it that really muffled sound.

I gotta work on my audio...
