[Bret Williams] "I'll add that this should really be the responsibility of the second editor. As an X editor I would never assume that the project coming to me was an X project. But, the app is 10 bucks so you might as well have it. That said, it's only 10 bucks so the other facility should ALREADY have it. It should be required. Perhaps you should gift it to them on the app store to make a point. It really is more of a end user X process than a 7 user prep process."

I guess I see it differently.

If I hand off things to a colorist or audio mixer or another editor, I feel like it is my responsibility to prep the material for their taking.

Otherwise, it would be a giant mound of footage and decisions that I have been living with for the past few days/weeks/months/years and that the person on the other end is completely unfamiliar.

TO address the OP's question, you need software called 7toX. They will be able to relink to the footage once they import the translated FCPXML. You can send an XML of the whole fcp7 project if you'd like, or just a sequence or two, whatever you need to send.
