BWF2XML is an utility that converts mono or polyphonic BWFs to a format that allows FCP to see all metadata of the original file.
The current version of BWF2XML does double check for system version and QT version, so polyphonic BWFs with more than 2 channels will be ignored when the QT version is below version 7. The app does not know or care about what version of FCP is installed. FCP 4.5 does only support 2 channel polyphonic BWFs - so that might be an issue for you; FCP will parse the XML correctly but won't connect the files and in case you try it, there will errors.
The current version also includes the
- Handles files sizes up to 4G now (4G is file size limit for BWF files)
- Fixes a bug with 29.97 DF settings
- Mac OS X 10.4 or later
- QuickTime 7 or later
