    It put up a fight! Attached is a zipped folder with the source XML, the translated .fcpxml, and a batch list.

    EDIT: It takes awhile for FCPX to import this one, be patient.

    Hi Doug.

    I need your help.Can you make and send me an example Final Cut Pro 7 project exported as an xml file? The project should contain two bins. The first bin should contain the video clips used in the project, and the second two sequences. Put 2-3 videos in each sequence.I’m working on a project in which I might use the xml syntax used in the old fcp 7. However, in my environment no one uses fcp7 anymore, and I found you by chance, so I’ll give it a try.Thank you.

    Hi Branko,

    Sounds easy enough, might be a few days before I can get to it though.

    Stand by!

    Hey Doug,

    It appears you are the hero we all need right now!

    Are you still able/willing to convert an .fcp file to something that could be used in Final Cut Pro X? A .fcpxml I think.
