Importing a prores xml from fcp7 into premiere cs6

Mar 11, 2013 7:24 PM

I'm finally making the switch from FCP7 to CS6.  I'm trying to import an xml of a prores (1080p, 23.98, prores lt) sequence from FCP 7.  It doesn't have any effects, titles, etc in it, yet Premiere keeps giving me the file import error ("this project contained a sequence that cannot be opened.  No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with this sequence type").

I made sure that I created a sequence setting/preset that matches my prores sequence from FCP.  If I try exporting the xml from FCP as a DV or DVCPROHD sequence, it imports just fine in Premiere.  It just won't import the prores sequence (which is a bummer because all my FCP projects use ProRes). 

I'm on a Mac Pro running Mountain Lion (10.8.2) and Premiere Pro 6.0.2.


Any advice or help is greatly appreciated!

    I'm having a similar problem.  Working from an old FCP SD ProRes sequence and everytime I import the XML into PP it takes it into a Quicktime DV NTSC sequence...


    Any Luck?

    What you're seeing is probably normal.  ProRes is not part and parcel of PP like it is with FCP.  It's an afterthought at best, and often an unnecessary one given PP's strengths with native media.
