Move a Final Cut Pro X Project to Final Cut Pro 7 and beyond!

Xto7 for Final Cut Pro

Xto7 for Final Cut Pro (previously called Project X₂7) translates the brand new Final Cut Pro X Project XML (fcpxml) and converts it to Sequence XML for import into Final Cut Pro 7 or other applications.

(If you need translation the other way — from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X — there's an app for that too!)

Your Final Cut Pro Sequence XML is ready for:

  • Color
  • Final Cut Server
  • Premiere Pro and then dynamic link to
    • After Effects
    • Audition
    • Encore (for real Blu-ray authoring)
  • Final Cut Pro 7 and then to
    • Soundtrack Pro
    • Motion 4
    • OMF output for ProTools, etc.
    • EDL export
    • Print to tape and Edit to tape
  • other Final Cut Pro 7 XML workflow tools (such as Sequence Clip Reporter for stock footage and music cue sheet reports).

Already working is a Final Cut Pro X Project with:

  • Titles at the start and end;
  • a mixture of primary storyline and connected clips;
  • a mix of active and inactive clips;
  • large numbers of J and L cuts;
  • to-do markers and regular markers;
  • spot audio effects; and
  • cross-dissolve transitions.

Final Cut Pro X Project

All transfer without problem.  Unfinished to-do markers appear as red markers, completed to-do markers as Green markers, and the blue Final Cut Pro X markers as blue markers in Final Cut Pro 7.
