About Final Cut Pro X XML Version 1.5

The Final Cut Pro X XML (FCPXML) format lets you import and export XML documents between Final Cut Pro X and third-party applications. FCPXML v1.5 requires Final Cut Pro X v10.2 or later.

FCPXML describes certain aspects of projects and events that are useful for exchanging with 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.

In this document, it is assumed that you understand XML and have used Final Cut Pro X.
