I can't answer the question directly, but I can offer two alternative solutions.
First and simplest, have him to the Neat Video processing. (This way it only needs to be done on the clips/segments actually used.)
Second, you do the syncing and when you export out your cleaned up video, include the audio.
Yes thanks for those ideas. Trying to save him the long rendering times and trial and error with the Neat software. First 3 clips had a lot of noise left on right side of the CEO's face and some other areas. The 4th one nailed it, so I redid the others.
And please don't mock anyone... .... but I am so new to Premiere that I haven't yet figured out why the audio isn't coming onto the time line also along with the video with the SxS clips. I get the clip into the browser window and audio is there. Then I hit the little insert or overwrite buttons to get it to time line.
I have also loaded some 1080 60P files fromn a Sony NEX 5N to test those out and the audio comes right along onto the time line.
Supply him with movs or DNxHD files.
Of course it would have been easier to supply him with source files and do the clean up on only the files that made the edit in his system.
Are you saying export my processed video to .movs or DNxHD and give to him? The terms are all new to me. When I last edited with FCP it was with DVCam footage captured from the cassettes. Would he be able to then import the audio from the SxS card and sync it on his time line with those kind of files?
Nothing was deleted....straight 1 hr 2 minute single take.... broken down to the smaller files both by the Nanoflash and the SxS card.. I would drop the soundtrack from SxS onto my time line and sync it up for him first with the noise processed Nano video files if I could figure out why it isn't following the video onto the time line? Why does the 1080 60P codec from the Sony NEX 5N still camera bring the audio along automatically and the file fromn the Sony PMW 320 does not? There must be a lot of EX1 and EX3 shooters here. Please, what do I need to do with the buttons or targeting or settings for the 2 audio tracks on time line for those files to have the audio come along? From the SxS files I imported, both the ones that say "CLPR" and right below that, "CUEUP.XML" play the sound in the browser source window.

Well I would do something like that myself because mxf can be a bit tricky and I do not know if FCP can handle them natively like the other 2.
Seeing as you have done some of his work for him already...you could synch the audio up before giving him the fixed video.
BTW - you will be losing the source TC when you process your footage.
Something you probably should do ..is ask him what he wants from you.
