Why can't I import clips from Final Cut Pro X?

If you see the following message when dragging a library from Final Cut Pro X to the SpeedScriber icon:

No clips were identified for import or export in this Library

then check that the clips to be imported:

  • Have the SS Pending keyword applied. This must be exactly as stated, not ss pending or SS pending etc which will not work. The keyword range can be anywhere in the clip and any duration.
  • Are audio, video, synchronized or multicam clips. Projects and other types of clips such as compound clips are not supported.
  • Are working with Optimized/Original media NOT Proxy media. The XML format does not include the file locations for proxy media so third party apps such as SpeedScriber require the optimized/original media to be available.
