Feature Doc FCP 7 Edit Conundrum
I'm wondering if someone can suggest an easy way through my current conundrum.
My old laptop died recently, it was a 2015 model and I'd been running FCP 7 on it as I have a feature doc we started on that software years ago.
I got my sexy new Mac laptop, only to find that I couldn't dual boot to an older copy OS, which I need to run FCP 7.
I would like to migrate it over to Premiere Pro, but have been struggling to find someone with the right OS and old enough hardware that I can easily access in my area.
What I am wondering is this - if I sent just my FCP project file to someone without the media (but the right hardware/software - running FCP 7), would they be able to export me the XML's so that I could then take that, run it into Premiere and re-build things from there?
I'm okay if I need to re-grade the whole movie, but. I definitely need all those cut points!
Will this work?
As right now the only other option seems to be to buy an old laptop, which seems a bit crazy, and quite a hassle!
Any help, suggestions or advice would be welcome. If you've tried this and succeeded I would LOVE to know!
Thanks in advance,
