[Oliver Peters] "Hypothetically, if Boris came up with their own Xto7 or 7toX transfer tool, the resulting translations might look completely different from those of IA."

But isn't this true when going from any track <-> trackless (or layer) based system?

My fcp timelines look way different in AE. I know, completely different apps and uses, but same idea.

Fcpx's timeline is unique, so the resulting translations might be unique as long as the stacking/layer order is correct, to honor correct playback/composite/nest/whatever.

Again this type of thing doesn't bother me as I frequently use the duck to AE and the timelines are different, but my intent is still there in the two different environments (minus audio of course, so it's not a direct comparison).

In pro tools, audio engineers frequently rearrange what I've done in fcp, but they understand my intent.

I haven't tested everything, but my what I've sent 7toX so far, all of the intent is there, even if it looks different from my fcp7 timeline. As long as there are no glaring omissions (travel mattes/plug ins/things that simply don't translate like some audio weirdness due to X's weird audio handling), the timelines playback the same from both NLEs. And if they don't, there's a bit of clean up to do, but nothing horrendous when considering this was thought to be impossible on January 30.
