If it is, as they claim, "as simple as that", why couldn't Apple do it?

I'm beginning to think there's a reason Apple doesn't want FCP7 projects going to X, which hasn't been talked about yet...

Note, this isn't an fcp7 project, it's an fcp7 sequence. Big difference.

Sure there is a difference - so why not "think different" and give us such a basic timeline FCPexport to FCPXimport, plus the option to translate our old bins to keyword collections?

2 x Finalcut Studio3, 2 x MacPro, 2 x ioHD, File Server w. X-Raid
.... and FCPX in the garbage bin

Not that big of a difference.

[Gary Huff] "Not that big of a difference."

You're joking right?

You don't see being able to transfer an FCP7 project and an FCP7 sequence as being different?

The sequence is your edit decisions only. A project is your bins, all of your media, and organization. You cannot use Resolve to transfer an fcp7 project to X. Huge difference, but what do I know?

Which is tougher to redo? Your bins or your sequence?

Hmmm, let's see... 20+ hours of synced dailies for a feature, 2 and 3 cameras grouped... Different animals, but both very time consuming.

brilliant...just by thinking about a different way to do something you have come up with such a simple solution...would be cool to see you import and avid project and send it to fcp or take a final cut project, send to resolve and export an avid project! that would be very neat!

You could also use CatDV, both for FCP7 to FCPX and FCP7 to Avid/FCPX...

Maybe all this is why Automatic Duck forged a relationship with Adobe.

The need for third party dedicated translator app may be on the decline. Programs are building that in. On the other hand the need programs have that ability to talk to other apps need to be built in directly so this is what Duck is going to do for the full line of Adobe post production apps.

If people spent the amount of effort to make all their other duff technology and gear work as they are obviously doing with FCPX, my local refuse tip wouldn't fill up half as quickly. They used to call this "flogging a dead horse".

The horse isn't dead, in fact it's just a Pony, some of us think it's worth the time and effort to help it become a racehorse. :)

if Resolve could do this - why couldn't Apple have spent 10 minutes and created a sequence translation program? (instead of having to plunk down 900 dollars more for resolve making FCPX no longer the bargain Apple markets it to be)

How much bad press would they have avoided? - giving you best of all worlds -- using Final Cut Pro X to do what it does well (speed - fewer transcodes - the magnetic timeline for anyone who needs or wants that) and Final Cut 7 for what it does well - broadcast monitor monitoring - tracks - easy export for audio mixes - 10 years of muscle memory for FCP editors etc...

If Apple's team was as up front and as open as Adobe now appears to be (and Avid is becoming) Apple could have made everyone from pro-sumers to pros happy. Instead they've angered so many people they've undoubtedly lost a large percentage of them for good.

Textbook case of terrible marketing and customer service.

CatDV can do this for $499 I believe

Resolve Lite can do it for Free.

Yes Apple should have a utility to input FCP7 sequences for FCPX use. Granted that's no panacea but it really would have helped especially since that level of support seems relatively easy to achieve.

Regarding FCPXML is that I suspect many programs are gong to support it making Automatic Duck less important. Of course Duck will do this for Adobe FCPX to After Effects work as well as their other programs.

BTW the next level of FCP7 to FCPX support might be something like a means to Media Management FCP7 Bins into Named Folders in the Finder. FCPX imports Folders as Keyword Collections. Subclips and Nest would probably be another tangle but Bins to Folders would be another step forwards.

Yes works flawlessly in the free Resolve Lite - but no audio!
