Getting rid of compound clips after using 7toX

I think I read something here over the last couple of days about 7toX working well. But, because it brings FCP 7 timelines in as compound clips in the FCPX event, that becomes an issue with bloat when you put the compound clip into an FCPX project and start working with it.

I just had a chance to try this. I exported an xml of a timeline from FCP 7 and used 7toX to bring it into FCPX. Made 2 projects, placed the compound clip in one, and then opened the compound clip. Highlighted all the clips within it and Command-C to copy.

Opened the other timeline, er, sorry, project, and Command-V pasted. All the clips pasted perfectly but as uncompounded clips. Deleted the project with the compound clip in it. I deleted the original compound clip from the event to see what would happen and nothing did, just the compound clip deleted. I am left with the media in the event and a timeline with the clips uncompounded, as I wanted.

So this eliminates the problem of bloat if you just work with the compound clip.

Best,
John

I put the compound in the Project, select it an Break Apart (Command-option-g)

No more compound.

Well, at least I found my elbow when I got there.

Best,

:)

You could also "Open in Timeline" from the event and copy/paste that in to a Project.
