I want to take a file from the bin, export from MXF to QT, and preserve the metadata. Oddly, there seems to be no workflow in Adobe capable of doing this.
I can't import the MXF straight into AME, because it's from the C300 which splits up the clips into 2 GB chunks, which only Premiere Pro seems capable of rejoining.
I can't send the MXF straight to AME from the Premiere Pro bin, which would be a nice functionality, but sadly, it seems I have to send it from a sequence, but...
I can't send the MXF to AME from a sequence, because then all the metadata from the clip is lost.
I can't modify the metadata in the export dialog, because timecode box is greyed out and zeroed...
Aha! I found that I can export from the source monitor instead of the timeline, which preserves all the metadata.
