    Importing FCP7 audio timeline into MC version 8

    Hi anyone have suggestions on copying audio timeline /tracks in FCP7 and exporting and converting the timeling into a AAF file  so the timeline can appear in Avid.  I've only heard of AUTOMATIC DUCK performing this.  Are there other plug ins that peform this?

    Boris used to have a plug-in, but thtat's no longer available. One option would be to export the timeline as an EDL and then import (not link) that EDL in Media Composer. But I can't guarantee that any effects etc. will be properly carried across.

    Also, I don't have MCF currently installed so I can't test for EDL import. It may not even be available.

    I'd try using Resolve as the go between but I wouldn't spend much time on it....
