Get FCP ProRes into Avid Media Composer with DNxHD MOV

Hi guys, have you met the trouble of importing videos from one editing tool to another? With the non-native video formats they output we can’t easily work them together. Just as one friend said like this:

I have a project that is edited in FINAL CUT PRO 7, PRORES 422 (HQ). Turns out that (surprise!) i have to delivery everything in DNxHD 145. I tried to convert using Compressor, MPEG Stream and Final Cut with custom settings (i installed AVID and got the DNxHD codecs in FinalCut). All of these options messed with my chroma levels. The black is not black, the green is “radioactive”… even when i import the resulted DNxHD in AVID, the scope monitor looks messed. Any solutions to me?’

Surely you can’t avoid the limitation of different editing software, however, it is unnecessary to worry about it. Plan to edit your ProRes files form FCP to Avid Media Composer in compatible formats DNxHD .mov. FCP to Avid MC Video Converter for Mac may remove your worries.

Follow the guide and you’ll find the truth by yourself:
Download the program from the official website and launch it correctly, From the main interface, tap the ‘Add video’ or ‘Add from folder’ to load your files. This product can accept various video formats, including ProRes codec files output by FCP, so for Avid Media Composer, what should we do the next? On the ‘Format’ bar, tap the ‘Avid Media Composer’ and you’ll see the ‘Avid DNxHD (*.mov)’, as the screen shot showed here:

For advanced users, you can control output video quality by setting resolution, bitrates and frame rate in ‘Settings’, For preserving 5.1 channels surround sound, set audio channels to ‘5.1 channels’ instead of Stereo.

Additional Tips: If you have needs for other editing tools instead of Avid MC, you must have seen them also listed there, such for iMovie or FCE, Premiere Pro, etc. Multiple choices here you can select what you like. Other tips or advice? Please show them at the end of this paper.

Carry Projects from Avid MC to Adobe After Effects?

Hi, guys, do you know the two popular editing tools called Avid Media Composer and Adobe After Effects? Two excellent editors which have own special characteristics or common points in editing world. So someone may ask for different usage in different occasions, we may choose one as our best. Could we move projects from Avid MC to Adobe After Effects for another editing?

Here we got two solutions to the questions below, any one you can select to meet your needs.

Solution 1. via AAF-– the simplest way to transfer projects from Avid to After Effects. Some details are provided here, you can take a reference. Select the sequence you want to export and go to File > Export….

In the Export As drop down, choose AAF:

The primary reason one exports from Avid to After Effects is to add effects and filters to footage. You don’t want to transcode media or reduce its quality in any way. For this reason, I recommend you select ‘Link to (Don’t Export) Media in the Export Method drop down (as shown above). However, if you’re moving from one computer to another, then it might be a goo
d idea to select ‘Copy All Media’ instead. This way, your clips travel with the AAF file.

As far as audio is concerned, it is pointless to export multiple audio tracks to After Effects. Better to mixdown the audio to one track and export that single track if necessary. If you’re only exporting clips or portions of your sequence, then uncheck Include Audio Tracks in Sequence.

In After Effects, go to File > Import…> Pro Import After Effects…. Click on Modify Settings…:

If you are failed with method 1 above, Here we also get the method 2 instead.
Solution 2. Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate—convert any projects from Avid MC to After Effects.

Supported for any video formats output from Avid MC, we can encode them with the most compatible videos for After Effects. Load your output files from Avid MC to the program Avid to After Effects Video Converter, we can choose the suitable output format such like ‘Adobe Premiere Pro/Sony Vegas’>>’MPEG-2 (*.mpg)’, then click the ‘Convert’ button to start your conversion. Finally transfer your output projects to After Effects with ‘File’>>’Load files’…More details about the conversion you can take the following picture as a reference.

Which one do you like better? Obviously, the second one may attracts your attention with easy operation and multiple functions, am I right?
