• Does it work with XML from Final Cut Pro 6 or 5?

    User testing shows that it does work with XML from FCP 6 and 5. We have a concern with speed changes as that changed with FCP 7.

  • Does it work with Final Cut Express?

    No. Unfortunately Final Cut Express does not export XML, which is what we translate.

    It is possible, if you have an accommodating friend, to import your project (with media) to Final Cut Pro and then export Final Cut Pro 7 (or 6) XML that we can translate to the new Final Cut Pro X format.

Translate XML from Premiere Pro CC

into XML for import to Final Cut Pro X.

SendToX (previously known as 7toX for Final Cut Pro) translates XML from Premier Pro CC into XML for import to Final Cut Pro X so you can use Apple’s powerful new professional editing tools to update or finish projects.


This lightweight application is simple to use, with drag-and-drop support and progress information. SendToX translates important metadata from your Project XML — including bins, clips, subclips and sequences — to a new Event in Final Cut Pro X with the highest fidelity of any translation application for Final Cut Pro.


In addition, the application provides clear, detailed reporting after every translation. SendToX will also (optionally) make a Batch Capture list of media missing during the translation.



Final Cut Pro version 10.1 or later

Premiere Pro CC to export XML

OS X 10.7 Lion or later.

  • Simplicity

    Choose from three simple methods to translate Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro 6/7  XML to Final Cut Pro X XML:


    • Run SendToX and use the Open dialog to locate your exported XML file
    • Drag-and-drop the XML file onto the SendToX app icon
    • Right-click on the XML file in the Finder and choose Open With > SendToX from the contextual menu.


    SendToX displays a progress bar during XML translation and, when completed, adds the new Event to the Event Library. The Event contains clips for each media file and Compound Clips for each sequence.


    SendToX supports both Final Cut Pro X and  Final Cut Pro X Trial.

  • Fidelity

    SendToX produces the highest fidelity translation of your Premiere Pro (or other source app) Project, including the following conversions:


    • Bins become Keyword Collections, complete with original Log Notes and comments
    • Sequences become Compound Clips and are tagged with an “Sequences” keyword to make them easy to find
    • Multicam clips are fully supported
    • Original track structures are represented by Roles
    • PICT files are automatically converted to TIFF files
    • 31 transitions are translated to matching transitions
    • 72 video FxPlug and FxScript filters are translated to matching video filters
    • 32 audio filters are translated to matching audio filters
    • Layered Photoshop files are accurately translated to Layered Photoshop files in Final Cut Pro X
    • Motion Tab settings (Scale, Rotation, Center, Crop, Distort and Opacity) are translated to Transform settings (Scale, Rotation, Position, Crop, Distort and Compositing Opacity)
    • Composite Modes are translated to matching Compositing Blend Modes
    • Constant speed changes are translated


    For a complete list, see About SendToX.

  • Transparency

    SendToX adds red to-do markers to items that have been changed or substituted during translation. You can easily view these markers in the Timeline Index in Final Cut Pro X,
    and quickly jump to a specific marker to review any change in context in the timeline.
