Get him PR.
So there's really no other way to share files?
You can import FCP into Pr CS4, but there is not a very good way to go the other way. You can export EDL, but that is pretty restrictive and likely wont make you smile.
Bah humbug. Ok, thank you, Curt.
I've asked a similar question before, with no better options. so let me ask a couple follow-ups.
Kurt, if his goal is just to trim clips (with or without some length handles), will the EDL handle that?
My issue has been a client who does much of her own basic editing of DV footage in iMovie, and we couldn't find a file type that PP (CS3) liked. And she'd like a file back at times. The resolution has been for her to output to DV tape and for me to recapture. Works fine for our purpose, but there ought to be a better way.
Also re CS4 sharing files with mac/non PP users, did 4.1 fix the QT AME/export issues?
Some have had good luck with Project>Export Project as AAF. I've never needed to go this direction, so cannot attest to how well it works.
Please report on your success and good luck,
