This message indicates that the fcpxml refers to more tracks in a piece of media than exist in the source file. This is a known issue in FCP X.

You can verify that the fcpxml is the cause of this problem, by loading the fcpxml back into FCP X and looking at the named media on the timeline. You will see that one or more of its channels are black. This indicates that FCP X cannot find that channel.

We have heard of this happening in particular with Canon EOS C300 files, but it may happen with other media files too.

The only solution appears to be:
1. delete the media described by <asset name> from the project,
2. import it again,
3. rebuild that part of your timeline,
4. re-export the fcpxml.

Doing so may then reveal another piece of media which causes the same problem. Unfortunately the only solution is to continue to deal with each one as described above until the fcpxml passes through X2Pro without a problem.
