Need to restore an old FCP 7 project, for use in FCP X and don't have FCP 7 anymore...

Hi all,

I know this might be a dated question. I have not used FCP 7 in quite sometime and moved on sometime in 2012/2013. However I recently came upon a situation where I need to restore an old FCP 7 project, and convert it into an XML friendly format to use in FCP X or Davinci Resolve. But I don't have an old enough system to run a legacy copy of FCP 7 or a copy of FCP 7 anymore. Am I out of luck or has someone developed a way to convert native fcp files into XML's without the use of the old FCP 7 software??

I haven't seen any alternative so, as far as I know, you'll need to find someone who has FCP7 and can open the project and export the project XML. On the plus side, they shouldn't need the media so you should be able to email the project file to whoever you find that still has a copy.

Hey Peter,

I keep a legacy workstation with FCP 7 for just such an emergency.

If you're willing to send / post the old project file, I'll convert it.
