I started a family history documentary project in Summer 2010 using FCP7. Unfortunately, the project fell off the next year and I never converted it to FCPX. I still have the project files and all the raw footage on an external hard drive, but I have no way to open the project. The computer that was running FCP7 is long gone, and my current Macbook Air (2015) running Mojave can’t run FCP7 even if I could get my hands on it. Of course, FCPX won’t open the FCP7 files. Any suggestions on what I might be able to do? Do I need to find someone with an old Mac running FCP7? If so, where should I go to look? I live in Chicago.
I’ve got an old MacPro with FCS7 installed and functioning. If you’re comfortable sending the project file, I’ll export an XML with media offline that you can use to re-link. Do you still have the original media and render files / folders?
