Default XML in PT11?

Will ProTools 11 open and inport data from an XML file?

Our facility uses FinalCutPro for Video editing but the new FCP10 does not support an export of OMF, or AAF.

I apologies if this question has already been asked and answered, I'v just not been able to find the answer yet.

Default Re: XML in PT11?

FCP X can use XML:

"XML import and export for collaboration with third-party finishing tools and media asset management systems.
XML interchange supports Metadata Views that can include standard metadata fields like scene, take, and reel along with custom fields."

However, Larry Jordan says, "The biggest weakness in FCP X, for me, is audio mixing. Here, FCP X is almost as bad as FCP 7, though with better audio filters. Currently, it is cumbersome to move projects out of FCP X into either Adobe Audition or ProTools for mixing."



Yes. However it takes a utility from Intelligent Assistance to do so.

Xto7 converts the XML export of a Final Cut Pro X Project (but not an Event) into a form that can be imported into Final Cut Pro 7.
The process is similar to moving an FCP 7 project into Adobe Premiere Pro CS6:

Just as with moving files between FCP 7, Premiere, or Avid (using the tools from Automatic Duck), some things won’t transfer to FCP X. Edits and media transfer almost perfectly. Some effects and retiming do not; check the Intelligent Assistance website for all the details.

And this looks promising:


Thought you might like to hear about an interesting new development for FCP in serious post production workflows:

Gallery have just announced an exciting new product, XML-Pro which translates FCP XML directly into Pro Tools sessions.
The Sessions refer back to the source FCP audio files, (unlike FCPs OMF export which uses embedded media), and volume automation is also translated into the session.
