    Client edit in Final Cut >> Want to hire me to Color Grade

    Crooked Path Films Level 1

      Hey all,

       

      I have been asked several times to color grade projects for them, but the whole issue with importing into Premiere has caused most of them to seek a Final Cut colorist.  What are my options?

       

      I know that CS5 can import FCP xml's but every time I look into that as an option, the editor has used effects on the timeline that won't transfer over to Premiere.

       

      I've heard of softwares like Automatic Duck...does that make more of the effects transfer over?

       

      Any options or suggestions for workflow to offer these clients so they aren't hiring someone else, or do I just need to get a dedicated Final Cut system to use for coloring (yuk!)?
