Has anyone ever done this successuflly? If so, can you describe your experience?

from Boris Red 4 online manual:

Automatic Duck Composition Import
Red supports Automatic Duck composition import. This allows you to import your timeline from an After Effects, Avid or Final Cut Pro host system into the Red Engine. Automatic Duck's Automatic Composition Import plugin lets you import an Avid® OMF® Composition, including all your media and clips. Supported effects are translated and recreated, and your timeline is recreated as a composition in Boris Red. In addition, your media and composition are added to the Project window.
The following features are supported for Automatic Duck import.

Importing OMF® Compositions from both Macintosh and Windows hosts.

Video and audio tracks

Submaster effects

Color tracks

Project size and Project FPS

Track names

Composite modes

Position and Opacity

Still Image Files

Motion effects


Picture in Pictures (scales to 50%, an Automatic Duck limitation)

Superimpose effects (Opacity to 50%--an Automatic Duck limitation)

Flip, Flop and Flip Flop effects

We used to make a plug-in that worked inside of RED, but we stopped doing
that a couple of years ago.
