[Oliver Peters] " If you've abandoned FCP7 years ago, what's the solution? Say "no"? Find a friend with FCP7? Something else?

My first approach would be to attempt an xml export of the main timeline in fcp7 and then attmpt to rebuild in Premiere. I have an older mbp that still has fcp7.

An alternative to that time consuming process would be to attempt to work from a pro-res master of the project instead.

Either way it's going to require re-constituting and re-building and so it really would depend on the client budget for dealing with such an old project.

But realistically, how relevant is a video made 5-10 years ago going to be? Most likely a client is going to want to update that project with new content so that the product they put to the world out doesn't look old or dated.
