    Newbie question about importing aaf from Sony Vegas

    JohnnyRed14

      Just got Premiere Pro CS4 the other day, so I need some fundamental help about importing aaf.

       

      I have worked in Sony Vegas for years, but may switch to PPro because of the integration with Encore.

       

      I have exported a project from Vegas to an aaf file for importing into PPro, but I am completely baffled about how to do this.

       

      If I create a project in PPro and then try to import the Vegas generated aaf using File | Import ..., it doesn't work. First of all, files with an aaf extension are not recognized in the import dialog. If I choose "All file types" and the aaf file shows up and I select it, PPro tells me that the import failed because the file type is not recognized.

       

      Am I missing something very basic that enables you to import an aaf file into a PPro project? The online help for PPro doesn't tell me anything.

       

      A brief tutorial would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks.
