So I'm in the early stages of migrating from Avid MC 6 to Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014. I went with Adobe's advice in this article, which said to do it by exporting the sequences as AAF files and then importing them into Premiere. The sequences themselves came in onto the Premiere timeline just fine. The video, audio, transitions, and a white solid made in the Avid Title Tool work fine, but everything else, like titles, graphics, and anything with a matte key gets a "Media Pending" error and does not work. How do I fix this? Thanks.

You may have to replace them. When alpha channeled footage is imported into Avid, it doesn't just read the alpha channel -- it creates 2 new files, Matte and Fill. Avid does what it wants to do.

PP, on the other hand, reads alpha channels just fine. There's probably some obscure setting that lets it read 2 files instead of just one... but as I look at that article, I see the topic of alpha-channeled footage never comes up.

So yeah, you may have to replace them.
