FCP 7 crashes exporting an XML
on Jan 22, 2015 at 4:07:46 am

I'm trying to export an XML of a large project so that I can use FCP7toX and get the project on my iMac with FCPX. Unfortunately, it crashes before finishing the XML. The error message is "The processing of the FCP XML has failed"

Any suggestions what to do to get an XML out?

I'm running FCP 7 on 10.6.8 Mac Pro 3,1 , Quad-Core Intel Xeon , 3.2 Ghz processor speed , 2 processors / 8 cores , RAM = 16 GB , Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT

What type of footage are you working with? Wondering if some non-FCP codec might be tripping it up. It doesn't say why it failed, huh?

Thanks for your question..... The project has a variety of sources for the footage, but all of it was imported into the project properly and still works in FCP 7.

No, no error message details. I don't know if there's a log anywhere I can check in FCP?

So all the footage has been converted to FCP editing codecs? ProRes, DV/NTSC, DVCPRO HD...etc? Or is there anything that's H.264, or Photo JPEG?

Hmmm...what is the purpose of the XML? You can see if you can launch FCP without the media drive turned on, and export the XML with the media offline.

I'm able to start the XML export but it crashes even without the media drive attached.
Then it's spinning wheel, so I can't look into the Log.

Bummer, huh?

Trash the FCP preferences. PREFERENCE MANAGER does this, and it's free. Apple uses it.

Okay, I trashed the preferences, but it crashed again. Shoot.
Any other suggestions?

I'd really like to use FCP 7toX, but if I can't get an XML of this old project, it will remain on the old Mac Pro forever. bummer.

I had some issues using XML to transfer a timeline from FCP7 to Premiere CC.
Major failure after a certain point in the timeline.
What I had to do was export the second half of the timeline in a separate file to get it to import in Premiere.
This was a 40 minute timeline.
Try doing segments of your FCP7 timeline. Good luck.

I also would recommend to export the XML as portions.
