FCPX XML synced clips no sound in browser

2.93K viewsSoftwareFCPX no-sound xml

Hi all,

Running latest releases on both Tentacle Studio and FCPX and trying to work with the XML export function for FCPX 10.3.x (1.6). Audio files are either 1 or 2 mono channel 24-bit 48Khz wavs recorded on a Zaxcom .

Importing the synced clips into a new event, I get no sound while skimming or playing the items in the FCP browser. Only after putting them on the timeline does the audio play.

This works, but it’s a nuisance, since I want to be able to preview and select footage before putting it on a timeline.

Is this by design or is something wrong?
