Thanks for the input, but nobody answered my question…
How can I uninstall FCS2 in order to re-install FCS1?
And yes, we have been using XML V3 to get projects from FCP 6 to FCP 5.1.4. It works pretty well, except for all our boris 3D titles that get replaced by gradients. We also stay away from speed changes, since we all know that reconnecting media on speed changed clips are unpredictable. And the xml process forces FCP to reconnect to the media.
I suppose the best way to uninstall would be a clean re-format and install. I suppose I’ll have to go over to leapard on the client’s system, re-install MS office, pull all the email over, copy all documents, and then install FCP 5, upgrade to 5.1 and then up to 5.1.4.
How does FCP 5.1.4 run on leopard? Does quicktime use the same version on 10.4 and on 10.5? I suppose that would be quite a rare installation…
You wrote that you have experience transfering projects from FCP 6 to FCP 5. I am trying to do exactly that and keep coming across an alter asking me to choose a transitional format of sorts. Any suggestions on how to take my final project which has been mixed in 6.1 and bring it back onto my own computer which has 5.1.4 using an xml?
