I'm one of the editors of a full-length documentary. My producer provided me with an .mp4 of interview selections, which she had edited from the original footage. I then cut that .mp4 into a story. Now I need to conform my edited story to the original footage for the final master edit.
I have access to the original media; but the producer edited her piece on Premiere Pro. The only vague ideas I have would involve individually synching each clip---a tedious project---or somehow using XML from the producer's Premiere Pro cut.
I am looking for any ideas about a workflow that might help with this problem.
Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere. I'm fine with any redirections on this topic.
As you found out, it's never a good idea to mix NLEs in a production. But there are solutions for the specific workflow you are looking into. Have a look at SendtoX: intelligentassistance.com/sendtox-cc.html
