Chapter Seven. Cutting the Track > Exporting for Pro Tools

Exporting for Pro Tools

Final Cut Pro allows you to export the audio tracks from your sequence into an OMF file. (OMF stands for open media format.) This file contains all the audio information for your sequence, including the actual sound media as well as the track information. When you import the OMF file into Pro Tools (or another OMF-savvy application), all the tracks from Final Cut Pro appear in your new document, with all the clips on them—ready to be edited, sweetened, mixed, and output to tape. You can even add handles when you export to allow a little fudge room for editing (Figure 7.37).

Figure 7.37. When you export to an OMF file, keep the sample rate the same as the sequence you're exporting from (usually 48 kHz).
