I'm wondering if my issue is that the first import into FCP has the mov in Apple Intermediate codec now ??? Anyone experienced similar. Ugghh.. I take it Premiere doesn't like AIC.
If anyone who knows reads this could they confirm please? If so... I'll stick the transcode on through compressor and go make several cups of tea whilst the computer churns it all out for the next two day... urgh! Oh well... welcome to the world of crossing over edit suites.
Try using the source files without a transcode. ie Native.
"Thats how we roll in Adobe Premiere Pro" ( CS5.5x)
Cheers for the answer. Yeah... that'd be lovely wouldn't it.. however, rented kit has to go back to the shop etc.I said bye to the SxS cards with the camera, before the switch to Adobe, whilst workflow was all FCP.
So I'm left with the above. I've kind of resolved the issue in that the only way around the current situation is to transcode. Bit of a pain but the vast bulk of the footage from various ameras in the project just migrates in normally. So just a bit of an all night compressor job on this.
Basically, the files were put through FCP as AIC codec so it's not going to happen unless there is a specific plugin for Adobe Prem' without the transcode or the originals, well... they might be still sitting on the rental cards ... but I doubt it.
I was just a bit curved balled at first when the QT player played them fine... until I clocked what had happened.
Just a pain in the posterior but if anyone knows of a fix quicker than the above.. please do let me know. I'd appreciate it.
Cheers again Shooter.
Are you absolutely sure that your files are in AIC? Because AIC plays just fine in PP.
Can you upload here screen shoot of QT Movie Inspector?
Whatever they will Open in... Open them and Export to a more edit friendly CoDec.
If they will open/play in Toast... use it to batch export.
If they will open/play in Compressor... use it to batch export.
If they will open/play in AME... use it to batch export.
If they will open/play in QT... use it to export... (multiple QT's at one time)
Next time you rent that rig... Capture/Ingest with Premiere.
Upload a small sample if you have one somewhere.
Maybe someone can find a better answer then transcoding.
