Does anyone know if there is a fairly easy way ( not automatic duck) to get my film edited in FCP 5 into Media composer 5 ?
many thanks in advance ?

Without the Duck?

Here's a way that won't cost you anything to try.

Export XML from FCP, then import that in to DaVinci Resolve Lite. Export from DaVinci Resolve to Avid (via AAF). Resolve even makes Avid media.

Will it work? I've made it work on short simple sequences, not an entire film. Won't cost you a cent to try.

I'd give you a better chance of success with the current version of Avid than an old one though.

Why do you need to do this?

i've done just the same here - export more than hundred sequences of feature film from FCP7 to Avid.
And after 2 days of testing i realize Automatic Duck suits better in my case.

It takes me only 2 steps with Automatic Duck instead of 4 with Davinci Resolve:
1) easy to export AAF directly from FCP menu,
2) easy to import AAF to Avid

With Davinci Resolve i need to do:
1) export XML from FCP,
2) than import XML to Resolve,
3) than export AAF from Resolve,
4) and finally import AAF to Avid.

And in my case Automatic Duck saves all the master clips names in sequences from FCP, while transferring projects through Resolve changes them to the media file names (it's important only if master clips in FCP names by scene or something recognizable to editor)

There is also plugin called Axle Transfer for FCP - it imports and exports AAF.
But it's pricey - $300 or something like that

(sorry for my poor english)
