Converting xml file from Premier to FCPx ads a .mov extension to all video clips and duplicates those in library.

When my editor sent back an xml file from Adobe Premier, I had to run it through the 7toX app to allow my FCPX program to import it. The timeline is there but it duplicated all of our video clips into the library with a new .mov extension to them. Now the timeline is searching for the .mov files (that don't exist on my computer) so all of those clips say "Missing File". In the library there is the original clip (P6080143) and a second clip (P6080143.mov) that the timeline is using. How do I change the timeline to search for the original clips that do not have the .mov extension? Is it something I did wrong in the import process or does Premier change the file extension?

I'd suggest sending an email to the 7toX developers. It's a pretty inexact science you're working with there.

[Zack Starr] "that don't exist on my computer"

They should exist. If these are QT files they are .mov. It's merely that the extension has been set to be hidden or that FCPX ignores or hides the file extension.

[Zack Starr] "or does Premier change the file extension"

Premiere isn't changing the file extension. It's merely using the full file name, including the existing extension. Like Noah said, contact Intelligent Assistance. There may be a way to strip off the extension in some manner so that FCPX recognizes the correct file.

Or you could probably just load the xml into a text editor and do a search/replace to remove the .mov extension from the file names.
