The all-in-one tool to move a Final Cut Pro X Event or Project to Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition, FCP 7 and beyond!
This app translates Final Cut Pro X Library XML (fcpxml) and converts it for import into Adobe's Creative Cloud apps, Premiere Pro CS6, Final Cut Pro 6 or 7, or other applications.
Your Final Cut Pro XML is ready for:
• Premiere Pro, and then to:
- AAF to Avid Media Composer and Pro Tools
- OMF output for ProTools, etc.
• After Effects
• Final Cut Pro 7
• other Final Cut Pro 7 XML workflow tools
Check the XtoCC Support document for instructions, including listings of what translates and what doesn't.
• Final Cut Pro version 10.0.1 or later
• An application that imports Final Cut Pro XML (such as Final Cut Pro 7 or 6, Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, Audition CC, DaVinci Resolve, Color, etc.)
• Critical bug fix for a crash caused by audio clips missing an audio role (introduced in version 1.2.1)
• Bug fix for a crash caused by multicam clips containing compound clips
Ratings and Reviews
Worth it but still takes effort
Not a cheap app for just translating XML, but it gets it right most of the time. It’s pretty darn good if you need this workflow.
Coming from FCPx a huge bummer that compound clips aren't supported… AE and Premiere both support it! I’ve had other translation app do this well before. It ends up taking a lot of time and effort to prep every single timeline that needs to be exported before this is useable.
Also audio works, but it’s strange coming into AE. It always seems to double and even triple the layers of audio files from video tracks. Not a huge issue, but again takes more time and effort.
Too many updates!
Does what it’s supposed to do, but I only use it occasionally. Meanwhile, at least once a month there’s an update. Not sure why they don’t bundle the updates into fewer versions.
Lots of recent updates, much more reliable
I’m working on a television show, primarily using Adobe’s creative cloud. Some of our footage from outside is put in an offline edit by other editors using FCPX though. I purchased FCP X to have it handy for times like this, but I had no way to get their work into Premiere Pro for my final edit. They gave me their libraries, and now all I have to do is open it up in FCP X, select the events I want, and export an XML to use in Xto7. From there, I just convert it to a good ol’ fashioned FCP7 XML and import it directly for use in premiere (with the appropriate footage folder from the FCP X library). There have been a ton of updates recently in Xto7, and it has been working just fine. The only quirk I’ve had to deal with is sometimes crossfades don’t port over just right…but that’s an easy fix. Don’t expect for everything to be 100% perfect out of the box in every sequence, but it gives you a huge head start and will put everything where you need it on the timeline.
