I'm sorry, but isn't this the nature of any exchange format?

X2pro, which creates what I am assuming is an official AAF, doesn't work everywhere, like Audition, an audio editor.

Pr can sort of import AAFs from x2pro. Is this x2pros fault? Or the incoming program's fault?

I think you've proven that there's a lot of data available in the FCPXML, so how exactly should we blame Apple for this, and what should we blame them for?

This problem is not limited to Apple, it is the nature of translation, even of the human language.

Not everything translates perfectly from native tongue to native tongue, and if you get two different translators, you might get mostly the same information with subtle differences.

Hell, even fcs3 wasn't a prefect translation between its own apps using XML.

For a brand new standard, I think it's doing OK, despite it's moving target status.

I haven't had an AAF rejected, as a matter of fact, most audio folks
I work with have embraced it.
