The discussion starts with a discussion of the release of Final Cut Pro X 10.0.1. We know what features are in this release and what else is coming in “early 2012” but what will Apple do for Version 2?
Terence and Philip discuss Intelligent Assistance’s new release Project X27 for transferring Final Cut Pro X XML to Final Cut Pro 7 XML for use in Color, Soundtrack Pro, Premiere Pro CS 5.5, OMF export and beyond. This leads to a discussion about the various flavors of XML and the differences in data structures between the two versions of Final Cut Pro. The differences between the publicly available FCPXML and the internal AXEL XML format used by Apple internally and for the Automatic Duck OMF/AAF export from Final Cut Pro X.
We briefly discuss the Automatic Duck changes in that context.
Back to the Final Cut Pro X discussion we talk about how fast Final Cut Pro X is in practical editing, and where the deal breakers may be for certain editors.
