Switch Project from Premiere to Avid or just use Premiere for the first time ever?

How big a pain is it to transfer an Adobe Premiere project over to Avid MC? There is already a rough cut done.

Probably easier to just learn Premiere I would think, right? I've never used it or even seen it up close. I hear there have been sightings in the wild though. ;)

Huge. Because you can't convert projects...only sequences. You'd have to reimport everything, and redo all of the project organization. Depending on how large this project is, it can take days, or weeks. Basically as long as it took to set up the other project...because you'll basically be doing it again.

Then don't do it.

Yup. Ever use FCP? It's more akin to that. Still, basic editing is all the same.

Thanks Shane. Figured as much.

I have used FCP7, much prefer Avid, but hey, I feel that I need to learn Premiere at this point anyway and would like to get familiar with it, so we'll see.
