I have been having issues dancing between the two as well.
Started editing red MX feature in FCP wanted to go to premiere for obvious reasons, but was already in 15 min in the FCP edit.
Export your FCP XML normally> open in dreamweaver>
find and replace (ctrl+F) all ProRez or Proxy extensions (proxies in my case) like so:
Click replace all. save.
SIDE NOTE: when moving to PC oddly it wanted me to still find the files because FCP failed to put a _001.R3D clip extension on all the clips so I had to repeat the process over again this time:
It is likely that also when you are moving to the new system it won't have the same drive path name so do the same for the file path like so:
(yours will be different)
only change the forward part. The files remain the same one wrong / and it wont work.
You'll also do this for sound as well. Now import the XML file to CS5.
Lastly; in my case the files still appeared offiline. (even though it didn't ask for the files) This part is easy. On each R3D file in the bin right click and press Link Media...
It should show you the file without browsing for it. Double click it>repeat. I had 96 files.
Also the project settings might be off resulting in a magnafication of your footage. To fix simply create a new 4K sequence and cut and paste your timeline. Whala!
This whole process took me about 30-40 min, but it works and works well.
Happy editing! -Matt
I'm editing a 30 day, 4 Terabyte feature film w/ 4 tracks of Iso audio. This is your best and fastest bet. I skip clip finder on the way back to CS5 and go right to dreamweaver before I get there. If you find and replace right in dreamweaver... no problemo. I figure I use about 100 clips per 10 min of footage... Sux, but it gets it done.
When you say ISO audio, do mean it is embedded within the R3D or synced externally? I was experiencing a distinct issues with no sound from the R3D files.
