First off, Mr. Rofrano, there are many people who don't like FCX, and can't get how FCX works. It's great that you and many many others have, but there are still many more of us that don't get it, and don't like it. So it's good that we have alternatives.

Now, Mr. Whiteway...The only way to get from FCP 7 to FCX is via third party software by, 7toX). FCP 7 projects are not convertable to FCX without this. And if you don't like it...why use it? Davinci Resolve is free, and will do what you want....import an XML and relink to the original media. Then you can grade and export from there. It will also do the conversion of the footage to a lower res proxy that you can use to edit. Down to 1080p ProRes LT if you want. Then edit, export an XML, reconnect in Resolve.

Or you can start using Premiere Pro... it has tracks, it is very close to how FCP 7 works, it is a current app that is gaining ground were FCP 7 used to be. Now editing 4K in that would require a VERY beefy computer, but the latest version does have a proxy workflow.
