Can I capture with Final Cut Pro and edit in Premiere Pro?

Aug 27, 2013 6:15 PM

Since it appears that Premiere has issues with capture - at least for me but as I see it for others as well - and that I can capture with iMovie, can I consider using Final Cut Pro for capture - then cross to Adobe Premiere and the suite for editing, finalizing ? Or is there a problem to copy the shots/files from one program to the other (would they remain identified clearly so I could just import shots into Premiere afterward ?)

 

Thanks

Rob

    It'll work so long as PP can read the files.  That's not always the case with FCP, though.  Be sure to run a test first.

    Capture with different settings in FCP.

    Steve Jobs (Mr Apple) and Adobe were not exactly best of friends!

    Premiere Pro comes with the codecs necessary to support most kinds of camera media. If you're capturing to something that's not a common camera format, then it's no surprise you may have to add that support.

    Hi Rob,

     

    When you capture HDV in FCP it creates a specific Apple HDV codec. This is a codec that is only available if FCP, Motion or Compressor is installed.

     

     

    The two workarounds would be to use Premiere Pro on the Mac with one of the above mentioned apps installed on the same system or convert to a codec that can be read in Premiere.

     

    Best,
