Avid Media Composer Import

Jul 4, 2013 11:17 PM

Can anyone please tell me whether I am able to import/edit native Avid projects in PP CC on a WIn7 PC. 

 

I know that Avid projects can be saved as AAF etc for either round trip or export, but there willl not be an opportunity for that.

 

Many thanks.

    I would assume not.  PP can only open PP project files.

    Premiere supported video project file formats:

     

    AAF (Advanced Authoring Format)

    AEP, AEPX (After Effects project)

    CSV, PBL, TXT, TAB (batch lists)

    EDL (CMX3600 EDLs)

    PLB (Adobe Premiere 6.x bin) (Windows only)

    PREL (Adobe Premiere Elements project) (Windows only)

    PRPROJ (Premiere Pro project)

    PSQ (Adobe Premiere 6.x storyboard) (Windows only)

    XML (FCP XML)

    in the same way that it can import FCP project files?

     

    Are those actual project files, though?  I assumed the XML export from FCP was much like an EDL or AAF, and the "project file" was something else entirely.

    Avid project files have the extension .AVP.

    Final Cut project files have the extension .FCP or .FCPX.

     

    Neither are supported for direct import into Premiere.

    Automatic Duck has an Avid/FCP > After Effects conversion program.

    I've never used it, and I'm not sure what effects, etc. are translated to Ae

    beyond what you can achieve with an .aaf or .xml.
