Time to move on from Final Cut Pro, the dawn of a new era.

I’ve finally made the move over to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and even though I’ve not had it for very long, I can already see why people are raving about it!

There’s a good chance I won’t be the only one making the move. That’s why I thought I’d do this really basic video fly-through of taking a film project edited in FCP, and moving it over to Premiere.

In this video blog I’ll take you through the various stages I had to go through to transfer the film over. I couldn’t do this via the usual (and easier) route of XML, for technical reasons, so had to go about it in a slightly different way.

1. Setting up the Final Cut Pro timeline ready for export (video and audio)
2. Exporting the EDL and AIFF files
3. Getting Adobe project ready for import
4. Importing the EDL and AIFF (Audio) files
5. Linking the EDL with the R3D 5K video on the Premiere timeline

Of course, the main reason for moving over to CS5.5 is being able to edit my film natively. Host was shot on Philip Bloom’s RED EPIC at full 5K! Adobe can handle the video format, which gets me very excited indeed. Very much looking forward to finishing the edit in Premiere and grading.

I will of course do more video blogs on Host post-production, so please do keep your eye on the website. And don’t forget to check out the teaser trailer for host here http://www.stadamedia.co.uk/host/host
