Can u use Logic X to do video final sound mix

Hi I am trying to do the final sound mix for a film using Logic x. The producer sent me an omf file and it imports with every stereo file split onto two separate R and L tracks. Does anyone know of an easy way or function in logic to convert all these files back to stereo tracks so I can work with them?

I think in Logic you can select 1 or more regions and bounce in place. So in your case select left and right, and then bounce in place. Still some work though.

Great thanks that’s what I thought one had to do. Thanks for clarification.

I think there used to be universal track mode in logic 9 where you could do like in pro tools and just drag r and l channels into one big stereo track without having to b in place.

Why do they say pro tools is industry standard for audio post production?

pro-tools is the industry standard in the US mainly because they were the first. pro-tools was created in 1984 and evolved out of drum sample libraries on floppy disk into the Sound Designer editor. I took pro-tools certification in college and learned about it. it is however not the industry standard in europe, the carribean, south america, and many other places. in europe LogicPro is widely used and preffered in alot of engineer circles. as alot of other things in the professional audio world pro-tools has become “standard” in part due to trends. so and so engineer says it’s the best, such and such studio uses it, etc. etc. pro-tools has been around forever and one main reason why engineers can’t seem to get away from it is that whenever avid releases new versions they always make it forward compatible, ensuring any session from an older version will work. this is huge if you work in the industry and rely on compatibility for your income. in essence any pro-tools session created in any version of pro-tools anywhere in the world will (in theory) open on any computer in any studio anywhere else in the world. this was one of the main reasons pro-tools has hung on in the audio world for so long. I’ve worked in a lot of daws and was trained in pro-tools and as I said in another thread, it has just not evolved along with other daws but has stuck to old techniques and stubborn elitism making it IMO a most inefficient and laborious daw when run in side by side comparison with say Logic or Live. pro-tools does nonetheless have an excellent sound engine and design layout, and avid is so far unrivaled in pro-tools studio and live hardware integration, albeit at exorbitant prices.
