THE APP

MergeX will merge two Final Cut Pro X events, combining keywords, ratings, metadata, etc... for every matched clip in each events. It works with every kind of clip: common, synchronized, multicam, compound. The resulting merged clips will be updated in the projects.

To take the simplest example, provided two occurrences of a same clip but with different keywords and ratings, MergeX will output a  single clip embedding all the keywords and ratings of both inputs.

FAQ

  • How does MergeX match files?

    MergeX's matching is based on FCPX file identification. The same file has to be imported in both events for them to match.

    It is not based on file names.

  • How does MergeX match Synchronized Clips?

    Synchronized clips are matched by comparing the clips composing them.

    If in Event_A, a synchronized clip named "Clip_A" is formed by "Video_01 + Audio_01", and in Event_B, "Clip_B" is also formed by "Video_01 + Audio_01", MergeX will match and merge them.

    Note: MergeX looks only for the presence of the clips, not their relative connection. This method allows for sync correction: leave the "Clip Name" selector to the better synched clip, and merge back all your metadata (tutorial coming soon).

  • How does MergeX match Multicam Clips?

    Multicam clips are matched by comparing the clips composing each camera angle.

    Let's assume that in event A, the multicam clip named "Multi_A" is composed of angles "Cam_A" and "Cam_B". Angle "Cam_A" is in turn composed of the clips "clip01" and "clip02", and "Cam_B" is composed of "clip_03" and "clip_04". The structure of "Multi_A" is then:

    Multi_A

       * Cam_A

          clip_01

          clip_02

       * Cam_B

          clip_03

          clip_04

    In the same maner, in event B, we have the corresponding multicam clip "Multi_B" structured as such:

    Multi_B

       * Cam_01

          clip_03

          clip_04

       * Cam_02

          clip_01

          clip_02

     

    MergeX will detect that the angles are in fact the same: "Cam_A" = "Cam_02" and "Cam_B" = "Cam_01". Since "Multi_A" and "Multi_B" are composed of the same angles, they will be matched and merged.

    tip: MergeX looks only for the presence of the clips, not their relative position. This method allows for sync correction: leave the "Clip Name" selector to the better synched clip, and merge back all your metadata.

  • How does MergeX handles metadata in Projects?

    All the metadata of the merged event will be passed on to the project.

    This means for example that if names and roles are changed in the event, the projects' clips will see their names and roles changed too. This also means that new keywords from the event can be found in the corresponding clips in the timeline index.

    Note: In the case of retimed clips, keywords and markers will not be processed.

  • How does MergeX handles duplicated Projects?

    If two projects have the same name, FCPX will rename them automatically upon import with incremental numbers.

    Please note that MergeX does not match projects: if two edits are exactly the same in each event, the resulting fcpxml will contain both.

    MergeX offers the possibility to rename the processed projects by appending "-merged" to the name, so that you can keep an unchanged version of you edits.
