I am having video files compiled in a sequence without cuts or edits then exporting this as 1 media file to help with bandwidth on sending the file and also to know the rough order of the clips. Is there an easy workflow for having some scene detection and converting this footage back to the original clips so I may edit in premiere? I do not own speed grade, and it is not available for trial for me..
I can do this process in Davinci, but was seeing if premiere has a strong option or if EDL or XML may be the route to go?
Premiere has no shot detection ability. You'd have to figure out (with your budget) some workflow in Resolve to make this work...
Or take your original NLE and do a consolidation with handles (say 10-20 frames) and send an XML/AAF to Adobe Premiere Pro; you'll increase the size and make it harder to handle than one file - but editorial systems aren't really meant to edit a single file.
