Q. What file format dose Reference X supported?

A. Reference X can read fcpxml ver.1.5 - 1.8 (Export from Apple Final Cut Pro X, Balckmagic DaVinci Resolve, Autodesk Flame).

Q. What is the Security-scoped Bookmark(SSB)? And why I add the directory path?

A. Apple designated to create the Sandbox.app to developer. This is for the security to safe the outside of the App. Developer must need to use a decode/encode a SSB, if access the media files from source code without of the user interaction.
You know the video editing is use a lot of media files. And the media files is in the a lot of directory area.So we must use a SSB to clear Apple Dveloper rule to create our App. But some fcpxml files is not recording SSB. So Reference X is must to decode SSB for user in side our App. And it must need a specify directory, that keep the media file. So Reference X is add the directory path in Preference window by user.

A. Yes, if the file path is exists, it's can.

Q. Does the Final Cut Pro 7's XML is supported?
