I've had a weird situation a couple times, and I'm sure there's a simple fix. I've worked on projects that originated in FCP 7, but when I render (with the Final Cut Pro Roundtrip setting) it exports an FCPXML, not one that it compatible with FCP 7. What am I missing here?
Secondary follow-up--I'm about to take on a Premiere project, and will intend to give them an XML to bring the movie back into Adobe when I'm done. Do I still do the FC Roundtrip?
That sort of raises an interesting question, though. If I render as "Final Cut Pro XML Roundtrip" or "Avid AAF Roundtrip" DaVinci will automatically create an XML or AAF. Are those, as a rule, to be ignored in favor of manually exporting one from the Edit Page? Or should I do that only in cases like this, where the automatically created XML isn't what I need it to be? Is there another way for after the render, other than right-clicking on the timeline icon on the Edit page, to manually export an XML/AAF?
If you need to export XML files from FCX and get that into FCP7 or Premiere Pro you'll need an app to convert the FCPXML format to the previous XML version. Intelligent Assistance has your answer for that: Xto7
