    Backing up MC in Premiere Pro

    Hi,

    I've been calling around for freelance work for a while now, and finally been given an opportunity.  Great, but the problem is that the place is strictly Premiere.  I have now said yes, but on Tuesday when I turn up I will have to wing it.  The two options I can do are: i) come clean that I am not up to speed on Premiere, gen-up as much as possible in the next couple of days, but know I will be exposed when sitting down to start the client's project; ii) take my MC 8.6 set-up with me (I am portable), and offer to do the job in MC at the agreed rate, and for archiving purposes give the boss some kind of EDL (or something equally tangible) which I would do foc. 

    I like the second option as it allows me to concentrate on editing the project, and then, with real purpose over & above simply following tutorials (which are excellent only if you have the leisure to make mistakes in your own time) make the boss's back-up by renting, at my own cost, Premiere for a month and re-creating the edit in this environment, and thus learning this kit in a working, professional manner.  The thing is - and if I phrase the question incorrectly, please let me know - once a project is edited in Avid, what is the best, most time-efficient steps to recreate the same in Premiere?

    Thank you,

    DC

    No problems to import your Avid projects inside PP , Adobe have made it pretty easy , not that easy to go the other way , just set up some test projects for yourself to test , AAF is what you want to use .

    Re: Backing up MC in Premiere Pro

    Great, thank you.  I will review thoroughly soon, although one quickie question for now.  If media has been transcoded to MXF and then edited in Avid, does somehow the file info translated to Premiere (however best described) include all specific references to the original media (not the MXF) so that Premiere can rebuild a timeline accordingly?

    What was the reaction in the company, and how is the process going?

    Thank you for getting back to me and asking.  It was Ok, passable - though next time I will have to be much better.  Premiere Pro is a more than decent kit, and while I did not have time to explore all the nuances of its capabilities, still, am I right in thinking that when it comes to fine-tuning the edit it does not have "dual/single trim roller" ? If not, I am very surprised.
