In my panel, I have representations of clips and subclips from an external system. So far I can only see how to import an entire video into Premiere. Is it possible to import a subclip?
To import an entire video, I currently do the following:
I see the importFiles() takes a generic Object. Is there a struct that I can use for defining mark-in/mark-out points for this imported video?
If the file contains XMP metadata defining sub-clips (created in Prelude, for instance), those will be available in PPro.
You can also create a sequence in FCP XML, and import that.
[Feel free to write me directly for panel development help.]
Thanks for pinging back.
My priorities got pulled in a different direction for a while, but I'll probably be picking up this task again soon.
I'm not able to set XMP data in the media, so I'll be going the way of generating FCP XML. Is there an XSD available that I can use to guide me in the XML structure? If not and I use Premiere's exported FCP XML as a template, can I trust that it will import correctly into FCP7 and FCPX?
For the XML structure, see Apple's spec for guidance, but yes, using PPro-generated FCP XML as a template is a good approach.
To the extent that FCPX supports FCP7 XML (I don't know what that extent is), yes, it should import correctly.
