  • importing FCP7 projects into latest iMOVIE

    Hi, so my 2008 Macbook pro that I was running FCP7 on for 14 years finally crashed & died RIP:-(

    I have a 2021 Macbook Pro now which comes with iMOVIE. I haven’t used iMOVIE in 14 years, but perhaps the latest version is more professional now? it used to be very basic.

    I really like the color correction tools that came with FCP7, i’m going to really miss that worflow. Hopefully I will be able to re-create it on iMOVIE. One major pain with FCP7 was always having to transcode footage. I heard iMOVIE can accept more file formats, esp HD cell phone camera footage?

    Anyway, i also want to know if there is a way to import my FCP7 projects into iMOVIE. I have several projects I was in the middle of that i didn’t get to complete, that I want to resume on iMOVIE now. Please let me know!

    I am now running:

    monterey, 2021, m1 pro chip, 16in macbook pro with 16gb unified ram

    old computer I was runnning FCP7 was:

    2008 intel core duo macbook pro

    thank you
