Titles not able to be copied from imported Project XML
on Jan 11, 2014 at 9:08:35 pm

So I'm working on a large project with many videos, and they all need to be subtitled.

In the interest of time, I've farmed out some of the subtitling to other editors.

One editor is on 10.0.9, and he is simply sending me the current version.project for each video he does. I upgrade that to 10.1 and copy the subtitle storyline out of his sequence and paste it into my master sequence. Great.

The other editor is on 10.1. This will be much easier, I thought. Just get him to send me a project XML file to import and copy the subtitles storyline out of there. No luck.

While I can open his XML file and see his subtitles fine, if I try to copy and paste those subtitles into my original sequence, all titles but the first one revert to the default Helvetica font and onscreen is just "Title" for each individual sub. Same thing if I try and export from the imported sequence to a flat ProRes444 file.

I think this is a bug.

Little late for this one video, but if I have to pass any more off to this editor, I'll keep that in mind. Thanks.

What version of FCPX are you using?

Both myself and the other editor are on 10.1.

I'm not on a machine with 10.1 installed a the moment.
So here something which could work (from just my memories of the bug).
If your XMLs are tiles only there could be an option to fix.
Open your XML in TextWrangler (free). There is a text line in the beginning which starts with " <effect id=... " followed by "uid=".../Titles.localized/Bumper:Opener.localized/Basic Title.localized/Basic Title.moti"/>"
Create a simple project using another title which matches the "Basic Title" some how (just one title).
Open that one in TextWrangler as well.
Now copy the line with the effect entry in this file and replace the entry in the first file with that one.
Make sure the "id="r..." are the same as in the source file.

I'll be back on a normal machine tomorrow afternoon CET and will look for a better description.
