Moving full-length film from FCPX to Premiere
on Dec 2, 2017 at 11:08:30 pm

Hello -- I have the latest 12.0 version of Premiere Pro, and the early 2016 version of FCPX, 10.2.3.

I cut a full-length film on FCPX, and I want to move the entire project to Premiere Pro. I am working on an early 2014 iMac with a decent processor and graphics card, and loaded with 32 GB RAM.

From the little I've learned so far, there may be two ways to go ---

1 -- through DaVinci Resolve, importing the FCPXML file, and exporting an XML from Da Vinci, and then into Premiere, or

2 -- using the XtoCC app to do the same. I realize there will be a lot of work to do once I get it -- with recreating effects and transitions, and possibly titles, which apparently don't translate between FCPX and Premiere currently.

It is all being done on the same system, so media should automatically link up.

If anyone who has done this can give me any help, in terms of the best way to go, and things to avoid, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you very much. best, Rob

Now, you do understand that you would be far better off completing the project in the application in which it was started, do you not?

I'd echo that. Finish in the app you started with.
If that isn't suitable for the whole process it wasn'T the right app.

Yes, I understand it would be better to not change, we have reasons that are specific to our project.

Looking for someone with experience with this, and who has done it successfully. Thanks.
