Opening a FCP 6 File in FCP X?
on Feb 7, 2012 at 5:43:35 pm

Hello Creative COW members,

I'm Ned, and I'm new to the forum.

I came here in search of some help. I'm in a Video class right now, and at school they have FCP 6 while I have FCP X on my computer. I have an FCP 6 file that I'm supposed to work on (and finish, lol) and I figured it would be compatible with my version, but it turns out it's not. A grave mistake I made, I should have saved it in a video format and then opened it on mine, but I'm used to Adobe products where older files are usually compatible...so now I'm sort of screwed.

Is there anyway to open it? :(

Thanks in advance.

You might try this, but I think it only works with FCP 7...

This is one of the BIG problems with FCX...no way to update projects. Well, you can with third party apps...but it isn't without issues.

Know that if you get it to FCX...getting it back to FCP 6 is also problematic. Yes, there is an app for that too (just released last week), but again, designed for FCP 7. And again, not without issues.

There is no smooth way to go from FCP Legacy (FCP 7 and earlier) to FCX, and back.

FCX and FCP legacy aren't compatible in any way. So yeah...you are in a corner.

Oh I see, so is there something like this that can bring 6 to 7, and then maybe I can use this one to bring 7 to X? or no? (I tried googling and didn't find it but i thought maybe you'd know)

This is quite the problem..so annoying!

[Ned Baba] " so is there something like this that can bring 6 to 7,"

Yes. Open the FCP 6 project into FCP 7. But this requires that you or someone has FCP 7. You cannot convert the file to FCP 7 without having FCP 7.
