Apply the power of Adobe creative tools to projects from other NLEs
Bring the creative benefits of Adobe tools to your entire production project, exploring new possibilities with Adobe After Effects® and other Adobe software. As you work in Adobe Premiere Pro, you can collaborate more efficiently with colleagues by importing and exporting Final Cut Pro and Avid projects.
For Final Cut Pro users:
Final Cut Pro project import and export
Roundtrip projects between Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and Final Cut Pro without conversion or re-rendering, preserving commonly used effects and transitions. Bring the creative benefits of Adobe tools to any post-production workflow.
Avid Media Composer project import and export
Use AAF project interchange to roundtrip projects between Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 and Avid Media Composer without conversion or re-rendering, preserving commonly used effects and transitions. AAF import and export is available on both Mac OS and Windows®. You can also import and export CMX3600 format Edit Decision Lists (EDLs).
Export your audio in Open Media Framework (OMF) format for interchange with audio workstations. Then, import the final audio back into Adobe Premiere Pro and use direct audio channel routing to preserve the final mix.
Robust Adobe metadata workflow
Use Speech Search and other metadata features to add intelligence to your assets from Final Cut Pro and Avid software. Metadata can be used downstream to engage viewers in new ways, from web DVDs to rich Internet experiences.
Timeline markers for embedded cue points
Bring your Final Cut Pro or Avid projects into Adobe Premiere Pro, and then add timeline markers that can be embedded as cue points when you export FLV files for Adobe Flash® Professional projects.
For Avid users:
Edit QuickTime Formats Natively
Import and edit all the popular QuickTime formats natively (including Apple ProRes and .mov files captured by Canon 5D and 7D cameras), with full access to clip metadata — no transcoding, rewrapping, or logging and transferring required.
Faster workflow with Photoshop files
Maximize the efficiency with which still images can be incorporated into video production. Import and animate Adobe Photoshop® layers in Adobe Premiere Pro. Instantly edit Adobe Premiere Pro stills in Photoshop, and then automatically match the frame size and aspect ratio of an Adobe Premiere Pro project — even in HD — when creating new files.
Smooth Blu-ray Disc authoring workflow
Bring Final Cut Pro or Avid projects into Adobe Premiere Pro and use Dynamic Link to send the sequence directly to Encore, where you can author a Blu-ray Disc, DVD, or web DVD. Timeline markers in the sequence act as chapter markers in Encore.
Better, faster workflow with After Effects
Import Final Cut Pro or Avid projects into Adobe Premiere Pro and send the sequence through to After Effects, where you can create opening titles, animated graphics, and world-class special effects. Better yet, when Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects are used as part of Adobe Creative Suite® 5.5 Production Premium or Master Collection software, you can use Adobe Dynamic Link to see your After Effects compositions directly in the Adobe Premiere Pro timeline — in context with the rest of your edits — without rendering.
