FCP X issues when importing a project XML
on Feb 24, 2014 at 12:49:36 pm

Hi everyone,

I am having huge issues importing project XMLs into another editor's bay. We both have the same folder structure and events. We even have the same plugins! Every time I try to import it, a pop up dialog appears saying that "the operation could not be completed" and that "no other information is available about the problem."

here's a pic:



I have tried everything I can think, stripping the clips of color correction, changing settings, to no avail.

Has anybody seen this issue? Any solutions, plz? Thank you!

Do you have the same version of FCP?

Yes, both are 10.1.1.

I solved it by loading library I was using on the other editor's FCP X and dragging a copy of the projects onto to his events. XML did not do the trick. I have to try another tip someone sent me on Twitter. If it works, will post it here. However, my "solution" is very inconvenient as it fails the purpose of exporting XML and sending it over email to another editor.

That seems pretty strange.

I have been sending a library with just one Project in it and reconnecting.

I use the File > Copy Project to Library > New library command and choose not include any of the media.

XML is getting better, but it's not a perfect representation quite yet.
