So, I was all excited about the update to FCP X finally having XML support, until I tried it and discovered that it's ACTUALLY a proprietary "fcpxml" extension. I can't import, or export, any plain old .xml extension. Which means, still, no import of old FCP projects, and no export from FCP X to other tools.


Am I missing something? If not, what is the point of "fcpxml"?


Glad I took advantage of the "SWITCH" promo from Adobe...

Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    It's not proprietary in the sense of only being available to Apple. It's just a new flavor of XML as you would expect given FCP X's totally new timeline paradigm. Give developers a second to work with this new XML flavor and you'll see more support appear. We've already been promised support of a couple of apps is in the works- "Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve, Square Box System’s CatDV, and many other third-party applications will offer XML-based workflows with Final Cut Pro X."

    But let's be clear - you can't import FCP 7  projects, not evenm with the new "XML Import".


    What are they playing at? How to destroy a reputation?
