Flame allows you to import multi-track compositions from Apple Final Cut Pro (FCP). Flame reads XML exported from FCP (up to version 5.x of FCP, exported as XML version 2.0) and assembles a timeline accordingly. Newer effects created with later version of FCP and XML exporters are not supported.
Media used during the offline edit in FCP (such as QuickTime files, VTR captures, or image sequences) needs to be recaptured from the source tapes or relinked from files in Flame. XML exported from FCP supports multiple tracks of video and audio effects and transitions in a single XML file. As well, more effects and transitions can be transferred between FCP and Flame. Only select effects are supported when transferring sequences between FCP and Flame.
When transferring projects between FCP and Flame, you are only transferring the metadata between the applications, as contained in the XML, and not the media itself. You need to import or soft-import the media in a separate procedure.
It is possible for FCP to export XML containing multiple sequences. However, Flame only supports XML containing a single timeline and cannot read XML files with multiple timelines. Ensure that the FCP editor exports only one timeline per XML file.
