    I did some color grading on a clip I was sent by a colleague and now want to pass the color board settings back to him. If I export an xml of the clip with my color board corrections applied, what settings would I choose when exporting the clip?

    Use the General setting for XML 1.5. Your Color Board settings should translate back to the other person.

    I sent an XML exported with general settings to my buddy with color board corrections I made for a clip. He imported the XML and the color board corrections were applied, but when he looked at the settings in the color board with corrections applied to the clip, all settings were at default or zero with the correction applied.

    Do you mean that your colleague had color board “effects” assigned to the clips but that there were no adjustments within the effect?

    BTW, which version of FCPX are you and your colleague using? The Color Board changed in 10.2 to being a Effect from being just a General Setting.

    he did not have color board corrections assigned to his clips . I should check the versions to be sure we are on the same page.
    However I also realize I can save my color board corrections as effects and then share them which would also work assuming we are using the same versions of FCPX.

    If you’re both not on a post 10.2 version, then XML transfer of color board effects may not work. I tried it on my end and it works fine, so make sure you’re both using the same version. It’s a pretty huge structural change and XML may not be backwards (or forwards) compatible in this regard.

    Awe’re both on the latest version of FCPX but the xml exchange doesn’t work as expected. THe work around was to do color correct on some clips and save the effects on my system and then export& email those effects to my buddy. THat worked perfectly.
