LumaFusion is now friendly with Final Cut Pro X.
Luma Touch has released a significant—but not free—update for its iOS video editing software LumaFusion that includes XML export support to Apple Final Cut Pro X.
LumaFusion is a robust alternative to Adobe Premiere Rush or GoPro Splice, giving filmmakers the ability to edit videos on mobile devices with features like multi-track editing, a magnetic timeline, audio tools, effects, and project management sharing options.

With XML support editors can export LumaFusion projects and pick up where you left off in Final Cut Pro X. It’s important to point out this is a paid upgrade that only works with FCPX.
The software allows you to choose which type of media to include in the export: full media, trimmed media, or no relinkable media. Full media will export the entirety of every clip used on a LumaFusion timeline. Trimmed media will export the portions of the clips used plus a couple of seconds on each side. And no relinkable option does not include media that can be relinked once the project is opened in FCPX.
When exporting, all video and audio tracks will transfer to FCPX including keyframes, transitions, speed changes, positions, and audio levels. Other features like LUTs, chroma keys, color corrections, and others won’t play as nice, but Luma Touch says it will support these features in the future.

Pricing & Availability
The Export to FCPX feature is a one-time in-app purchase of $19.99. If you don't have LumaFusion already, it's available in the Apple App Store for $29.99.
