I am very new at working with FCs and am having a problem importing an EDL which was created on FCS 7, I have FCS 6. I know once you have upgraded you cannot go back to an old version, is this the same for and EDL.
Any suggestions on what may be going wrong would be greatly appreciated.
An XML is a translation document. What you do is start the project on one machine...if it is FCP 6, then simply opening that project with FCP 7 will work. The project file will update and that will be it. If you start it in FCP 7, then when you want to get it to FCP 6, select ALL of the contents of the BROWSER, and export an XML, version 4. Import that into FCP 6...work.
If any of you have changes you would like the other to have, export an XML of the sequence and the the other machine can import that XML. If you make changes to bins, just export that bin as an XML.
But it would be a lot simplier to both be on the same version.
