Moving Avid Project to Final Cut Pro?
on Feb 8, 2012 at 11:55:56 pm

Hey everyone,

Ive hit a roadblock on trying to understand what is the best way of moving an Avid Project to Final Cut Pro.

Not just an avid sequence, but also all media that was digitized or imported.

Any advice? thank you

You can move sequences with or without media using this:

You can't really move your project and bin structure.

Yeah, and since the media is all MXF, not Quicktime, FCP won't be able to even see it. The Duck converts the media in the sequence to QT...rather makes QT reference files that point to the MXF files. But it won't convert ALL of the media, nor bin structure...as John says.

There really is no way to transfer full projects from Avid to FCP...or FCP to Avid.

What I did with Automatic Duck was actually make sequences in AVID where all the full raw clips in scene bins were laid out back-to-back, then export those sequences individually. Later, I'd open them in FCP, then drag/paste all the clips in those open sequences into their own bin. A pain in the ass, but I had to do it to have full access to raw material for a re-edit on a project that started in AVID.

You exported the raw clip sequences using Automatic Duck from AVID.
You opened those sequences in FCP.
But how did you get playable media into FCP?
