I have been working with a project I shot and someone else edited in Premier with mostly the original footage and some proxies of pickups which I exported out of RCX and dropboxed to him.
The film has now come back to me for color grading in Davinci.
Basically I had to go through and select each INDIVIDUAL file for relinking (original RAW files included) and half of the proxies didn't work because of some BS about how many audio tracks were associated with the clips. (I could care less about the damned audio!)
In FCP7 you could relink footage all day without any problems and all you had to do was point it in the general direction and it would AUTOMATICALLY find all the media AND let you know what it had found and how many files it needed to begin with.
PLEASE Adobe just make this work....
Second excruciating bit about Premier.
Why can't you simply right-click on a sequence and export an EDL, XML etc. when you choose to export from the file menu it exports an XML for the ENTIRE project! WTH Comeon! The only solution I have found to make the xml suitable for Davinci is to open it in FCP7 first and then export the timeline I wanted in the first place for use in Davinci.
Maybe I am doing something wrong but I kindof doubt it...
I mean I LOVE the mercury playback engine and RAW editing, oh yeah and the Title editor... but this other stuff is driving me mad and I feel like ive wasted 3 perfectly good days because of it :(
