Hi. I was wondering if there was a way to import RED16 edl generated from an avid system into premiere pro CS5. We are struggling with this since I think Premiere only accepts cmx3600 edl or xml from final cut pro, when working with RED files. The problem is, with cmx3600 (that can be generated by avid as well), you don't get all the file information because the edl type only allows 8 characters and RED files uses more than that.
Anyone knows a good workflow or workaround to this?
Try exporting an AAF (Advanced Authoring Format) file from Avid, and bring that into Premiere; Premiere supports both import and export of AAF. Check the help docs for more info on AAF support in Premiere.
