I did some searching and found plenty of guidance on exporting individual sequences from Avid to Premiere, but I need to do the entire project, including the media. I searched the Creative Cow archives, but all that came up were 6 years+. Can anyone tell me how to do this, or point me to an article that explains it?
It would very much be a manual process. The two programs don’t intertwine in that way.
Avid creates clips for everything contained in an aaf, but I don’t think Premiere does. I think it only gives you the sequence, so even making aafs for each set of bins content will only get you so far. It is possible there is a way to have premiere create the clips upon importing an aaf…but i’m an avid guy, not a premiere guy.
Perhaps an edl would work better for creating clips?
Yeah, I’m surprised how little information there is about doing this. Let’s say I exported all the clips from the avid project. Then I export the timeline. Is there a way I could link the timeline to those clips? Anyone done this?
Actually, I just brought an AAF back into Premiere from Resolve, in a new bin, and it did create clips for all events on the timeline, so it should just be a matter of being organized in how you import your aafs.
