The facility I work at sends Media Composer projects to Pro Tools every day. We create an AAF of the sequence and a video mixdown (same as source) of the edit, then give those two files (AAF and MOV) to the Pro Tools user.

The Pro Tools user then uses the Import Session Data command to import the AAF, followed by the Import Video command to load the video mixdown (MOV). The one key bit of information that needs to be conveyed is where to spot the FFOP in the video mixdown. If the video mixdown has a two-pop flash frame, its really obvious. If not, that information needs to be conveyed some other way.
