Questions about XML Export for Grading From Someone New To The Process
on Mar 24, 2013 at 11:13:52 pm

Hi,

I have a project edited in FCP 7 that needs grading. The colourist hasn't been chosen yet, so we don't know what system will be used. I'm assuming the colourist will want an XML file in order to grade the original ProRes 422 files used to shoot the film. I'm new to all this, so have a question about XML used in grading systems... there are several repositions and resizing of shots that were done in FCP. Will all of these translate via XML to the grading system. I guess in general, I'd like to know what translates universally from FCP via XML and what doesn't. Furthermore, if the colourist only wants to work with an EDL, I'm assuming all resizes and reframings will have to be rendered out and edited into the sequence before EDL export. Also, will FCP titles and credit scrolls come across or do those need to be rendered out as movies beforehand? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
