I need to master on client's PPro 5. I assume I can't import a 5.5 project on 5.0, so is my best bet to export then import Final Cut XML? Other better workflows?
Yes, a FCP XML is usually the best file to interchange with other versions with.
Importing 5.5 project into 5.0 project might work.
Thanks, Kevin. I’m confused in looking at the xml. It doesn’t look like it correlates correctly.
Have you had good luck with the format exported from PPro and imported into PPro?
Thanks, Kevin –
Any conversion mishaps I should know about? I’m not finding much out there to read on this xml structure.
I especially ask because I did a test xml export of a sequence and when viewing in notepad …. it did not look right at all. I’m no programmer, but I understand the parent child concept of xml. I saw references to durations, but not any other numbers per se.
Anyway, any other thoughts or shared experiences would be appreciated!
My backup plan may have to be a few CMX EDL’s … which is not the end of the world for a 7 minute program
