    I work in Adobe PPro CS5 and am collaborating on a video project with a colleague that uses Final Cut Pro 7. I have done research on how to do this and am still having trouble. All seems easy enough with the Adobe portion - I am exporting the project with Export/Final Cut Pro XML option (I have my media files on an external hard drive on my computer - just an fyi) . We then took the project to FCP 7, logged and transferred the footage and then imported the project. I see the timeline with the basic framework correct, but the media is offline. We are unable to reconnect the media. Is there a good tutorial online? I've tried youtube etc.

    Thanks so much

    P.S. I am NOT worried about transitions or other edits translating to FCP. I am just doing a very basic edit.

    Automatic Duck I do believe allows cross transfers.
    The plug-in is free now since Wes Plate moved over to Adobe.
    Google it.

    When say you were unable to reconnect the files do you mean that FCP wouldn't auto reconnect them or that you couldn't manually reconnect them? What error/errors were you getting when trying to reconnect the files? What codec are the files in? Are they in the same codec on both systems?

    I think the Duck does Avid, FCP & AE but not Premiere.
