Premiere To Final Cut Pro

Just recently, in the GeniusDV discussion forum, a producer asked if it would be problematic if he took a project that had been started in Adobe Premiere and transferred it over to be finished in Final Cut Pro. I thought that the explanation that GeniusDV instructor John Lynn gave him would make for a very useful article. Check it out below!

The files will need to be wrapped in QuickTime to work with Final Cut Pro.
What codec is being used with Premiere Pro? That same codec must be
available on your Final Cut Pro system.

Otherwise, you need need to do an additional conversion. Final Cut Pro
requires the DV-NTSC DVCPRO codec for files to play through the firewire
port.

Transferring files from PC to MAC should be fairly easy. Just make sure any
drives you are using are formatted as FAT 32 so they will mount on both PC
and MAC.

I previously had some files that were recorded in Premiere 6.5 and they
opened up in Final Cut Pro perfectly fine. However, before I was able to
output the files back to tape, I had to convert them to the DV - NTSC DVCPRO
codec. This can take awhile.

If you have a lot of footage, it might take a long time to perform a
conversion.
