Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharing clips and rough cuts directly with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, part of Prelude CS6 Workshop.
As well as exporting your project content from Adobe Prelude to an XML file, or to a Premier Pro Project, just using the regular Export dialog box. There's a really lovely workflow for sending things just directly to Premier Pro. Live while you've got the two applications running on your machine. So here I am inside of Adobe Prelude, and I've got Adobe Premiere Pro poised, ready and waiting to receive some media. In fact, I'll just switch to the complete version of this project, here we go. And now let's go back to Prelude and send some stuff over. Let's say, for example, I'm working on this rough cut and I think, wouldn't it be great if I could just carry on working on this now, inside of Adobe Premier Pro. Well, I can select the rough cut in the Project panel, and I can either right-click and choose Send to Premier Pro, or, I can go to the File menu and choose Send to Premier Pro.
Either way, if I right-click for example, nothing appears to happen right away. But if I bring up Adobe Premier Pro, automatically now, I've got each of the clips that were included in the rough cuts and a new sequence, a regular Premier Pro sequence which I can open up ready for me to carry on working. And I can do the same thing if I go back to Adobe Prelude where I can select for example a bin containing some media. So I'll right-click, Send to Premier Pro, jump back to Premier Pro. There's the bin and I can now carry on working with my media. In fact while I'm here, why don't I just go back to Prelude and just select everything in one step, File > Center Premier Pro. Go over to Premier Pro, and there is the entire contents of my Prelude Project. So, you really can use Adobe Prelude to prepare your media and, and this is an important thing, you can organize your media.
As an editor, it's always a bit of a pain, it's a lot of work, but it's very important to organize your clips. Put them into specific bins, name those bins. Just put everything, whether it's by scene, or by source tape number. Whatever the design for the organization of your project, it's a big help to have that done in advance. And now you can, you can use Adobe Prelude to build the architecture of your Project panel. Get everything in to the right bins and then just select everything with Ctrl + A or Cmd + A, right-click and Send to Premiere Pro.
And Premiere Pro will just take it from there. So that's how you can send clips and rough cuts directly to Premiere Pro CS6 from Adobe Prelude.
