Premiere XML Export for FCP and XDCAM EX Files
on Dec 6, 2011 at 2:44:48 pm

Hi,

I got a precut Project from a client which was edited in Premiere and then exported through Final Cut XML Export (workflow is from Premiere Pro CS5.5 to FCP 7).

Now when importing everything is fine but the Media is not connected because its the MP4 Files from the XD-Cam BPAV Filestructure and of course not the QT-XDCam Files FCP can handle.

I can relink the files but FCP denies the import. Only possibility I see is re-import and then replace through log+transfer and then relink the MP4s to the new QT-XDCam files but considering the mass of material this is not fun at all.

Is there any other way or is an workflow like this best not done at all??

Thanks for any hints in advance,

Karim

That's the problem you will face when you work in one NLE that can deal with the files natively, and try to send the project to another NLE that does not work with the files natively.

In order to get the files to work in FCP, they need to be converted using the XDCAM TRANSFER utility. And hope they relink Far from an ideal situation

I know that both programs handle XDCam fundamentally different but FCP can handle XDCam EX with its own Log+Transfer-Tool. I think it still can't import XDCam HD. So when relinking the XDCam-EX MP4s I get the normal dialog but it denies the import.

No workarounds for that? Is there some way I can rebatch them to the QT-XDCam Files that FCP rewraps on import?
