About Final Cut Pro X XML 1.6

You use the Final Cut Pro X app to create, edit, and produce high-quality video. With the Final Cut Pro X XML (FCPXML) format, you can transfer the details of your events and projects between Final Cut Pro X and third-party applications, devices, and media asset management tools that do not natively recognize Final Cut Pro X events or projects. FCPXML 1.6 requires Final Cut Pro X 10.3 or later.

FCPXML describes certain aspects of projects and events that are useful for other applications. It does not describe all possible data, and therefore is not a substitute for the native project and event data organized in a library bundle.
