[Oliver Peters] "[Robin S. Kurz] "Seriously? If you still need that over six years later, spending a measly 10 bucks (for a far better translation btw) is somehow asking too much?"

I think you misunderstood the request. The issue is getting access into FCP projects if you don't have FCP 7 running any longer. "


I've been using FCPX for new projects for 5+ years, and have migrated several projects from FCP 7 and PPro via XML when possible. However, I've got 10 prior years of FCP Legacy projects (hundreds of them, in fact) that *probably* won't ever need to be opened again. Probably. Just in case, I keep a 2011 cheesegrater frozen at 10.9.x with the entire legacy suite. Had to crack open a 2004 event edit last week.

A simple converter/exporter for these old files would allow me to replace that old tower without worry. It just isn't practical to go back and open all of those projects to export XML.
