I can see why X2Pro doesn't like that fcpxml, but I'm not sure that I have found a satisfactory way of working around it.

In the FCPXML, a clip called "STE-013" is described as having 2 channels and 1 track (a stereo track), but when that clip is used in the sequence, the FCPXML says that some audio is used from track 2 of that clip. X2Pro thinks that this is invalid because it was told that this clip has one 1 (stereo) track.

I tried removing that clip from the project and converting that, but there was a similar issue with another clip, then another...

There are 59 instances of this happening in your FCPXML, on 12 clips:
  • 130530_Audio/130530_STE-013.wav
  • 130608_Audio/H4n 1 card 2/130608_z1_c2_4CH001I.wav
  • 130608_Audio/H4n 2 card 1/130608_z2_c1_STE-001.wav
  • 140301_Audio/140301_z1_c1_4CH000M.wav
  • 140301_Audio/140301_z1_c2_080815-001.wav
  • 140301_Audio/140301_z1_c2_080815-003.wav
  • 140301_Audio/140301_z1_c1_4CH002M.wav
  • 140301_Audio/140301_z1_c2_080815-010.wav
  • 140301_Audio/140301_z1_c1_4CH009M.wav
  • 130719_Audio/130719_z1_c1_4CH005M.wav
  • 130719_Audio/130719_z1_c1_4CH007M.wav
  • 130719_Audio/130719_z1_c1_4CH008M.wav

I have changed all 59 instances to point to track 1 of the clips and this now converts on my machine, but it should be checked as it's not clear how/why it was pointing to track 2. I have attached the edited FCPXML for you to try. Please let me know how that goes.

Is there anything strange about those 12 clips? Were they all created by the same thing, or imported into FCP X in an unusual way?

Okay, I'm going to attach another xml that's not a compound clip. I feel like I've entered a never ending trail of error messages. When x2pro says it can't parse a certain audio file, I delete it, then export another xml. Then x2pro can't parse a different file so I delete it. Eventually I've deleted a good chunk of the timeline and then x2pro gives me the generic "Unable to parse" error. Please help!

Hi again,

It looks like you have exported a compound clip, rather than a Project. Please make sure that you have the project selected (either in the event library, or by having focus on the timeline when your project is loaded) before you export the fcpxml.

I had a problem getting volume info to carry over in my previous post, but now I have a far worse problem that's keeping me from creating an xml at all. The error says "Unable to parse FCP XML file and the details are:
Unable to parse FCP XML file to obtain project information


Details:
Invalid track number 2 referencing asset STE-013.wav
Suggestions:
- Ensure that the file is not locked by another application and is readable;
- Ensure that this is a valid FCP XML file from a released version of FCP X;
- Ensure that this is the export of a Project, not of an Event;
- Ensure that this is not an empty project (or that all audio is disabled);
