PREMIERE IMPORT .XML IS OUTDATED/Final Cut NO LONGER SUPPORTED

Since version 1.8, Final Cut Pro has changed from exporting .xml files that used to be capable of being imported into Premiere Pro CC to what is now .fcpxml that Premiere Pro CC CAN NOT import. This makes Premieres ability to import Final Cut Pro timelines outdated and useless by at least 2 versions of Final Cut Pro (1.9 and 1.10).

This makes collaboration between creators and/or businesses who use the newer versions of Final Cut Pro impossible without the use of a seperate, $50 application called XtoCC that CLAIMS to convert .fcpxml files but I have no proof of this.

Seeing as how Premiere used to import .xml files, it only makes sense to me for Adobe to revisit the development of Premiere Pro CC 2023 and incorporate the ability to ALSO include importing of .fcpxml.

Again, not to replace the importing of .xml files as we do not want to lose the ability to open older .xml timelines, BUT TO ADD .fcpxml as a supported format that can be imported into a premiere project.

Yes please! I assume this is the reason my FCPv7 XML is not opening in Premiere Pro 22v1.2. I have an old project Im working on in an old mac laptop with FCP still on it, but it's slow and the project is an hour long. I wanted to transfer and work in PPro on newer computer. I can't afford a 50buck converter to do this and agree Adobe should make back dated transfers possible. What have they got to loose by encouraging us all to move FCP files across. If anyone has found a workaround please let me know.
