Autodesk likes Final Cut Pro X XML as an interchange format
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.
