did you ever find a working round trip workflow from premiere to protools and back?
Our round trip workflow works, but still hoping for a better alternative in the future.
Duplicate & Rename the sequence for export (just a good habit to have... "videoblah.002, 003, etc). Then clean up any potential audio / video problems; clips that are not enabled, duplicate audio, delete blank tracks, and all the stuff the seems to crowd in the back of my timeline.
-It is a good idea to label your audio tracks for transfer (right-click> rename)
After that I export an OMF. (File>Export>OMF) and select the settings below:
That's just audio so for video, I export a quicktime H.264 video for ProTools DVtoolkit (video import plugin). Protools will except H.264 .MOV files, but it will not ingest H.264 .MP4's. It will also handle 1920x1080 files, but if I am rendering out a long project I like to keep the file size smaller by cutting the resolution in half or more.
The audio guy then takes it from there and gives me back a 24-bit single track audio wav file.
Thus far it seems to be a workflow, but if I want to go back and make changes, then either I have to do it all over again, or tell the audio guy specifically what needs done.
All in all, it's not efficient as using a roundtrip workflow such as AVID > ProTools and back again in AAF form.
Hope that helps.
