Autodesk likes Final Cut Pro X XML as an interchange format

Thursday, 11 June 2015

Autodesk Smoke 2016 includes improved support for Final Cut Pro X XML export. 

Although Smoke can use other formats for export, the new help file says out that Final Cut's format is the one to use for collaboration:

Use FCP X XML Export when you want to share a sequence with third party applications.

The XML Export generates a simplified sequence that can be used in third party applications for creative editorial, color correction, media management, etc.

There are new Sequence Publish presets available, which output FCP X XML sequences.

  • XML for DaVinci Resolve for Source Grading (ProRes 422 and 24-bit WAVE)
  • XML for DaVinci Resolve for Source Grading (Sequence-only)
  • XML for DaVinci Resolve (ProRes 422 and 24-bit WAVE)

Smoke 2016 can also now conform Final Cut Pro X timelines that include MXF format clips.

Shout out to @finalcutproes for the link!

Looks like Autodesk also likes Apple's ProRes 4444 XQ.
