Hi there, it appears that my name was incorrect on my setting, hence re-posting this. I have pasted the original post and a reply form Shane.
Appreciate your help. Thanks.
I'm working on a project which someone else started editing on macbook pro and FCP7. I have similar computer, BUT FCP6. He's given me the project on a XML file. When I open the file it takes me through the process of selecting where I want the project to open and how want to call it. Then very quickly import the files, BUT then it gives a warning message saying:
"No-critical error were found while processing an XML document. Would you like ot see log of errors now?"
I have said yes and no, however in both instances I'm left with FCP open but no project whatsoever. When I click to open the new project file created it tells me that the project is already open.
What am I doing wrong?
Is it that it just won't work going from FCP 7 to 6?
A desperate creative (no so much right now) person.
Re: Can't open XML file

Did they export an XML, version 4? Version 5 won't work.
They exported version 1, 2 ,3 ,4 and 5. Have tried all of them.
With every instance FC imports the XML document, giving me the warning message I mentioned before, it then asks me If I want to see the error log, whatever the answer, I end up with FC open but no project.
When I go to open the new create project file, it tells me that the project is already open.
Was there a mistake when first exporting the XML file? I have the drive with all the project content (clips,etc)
