There are lots of reasons to use Premiere Pro (even if you’re a Final Cut Pro editor). One of the most compelling is to organize After Effects projects.
- Create a new Premiere Pro project and match its settings to your primary footage format.
2 Import a folder of QuickTime movies into a Premiere Pro project. You can even import a Final Cut Pro XML file to bring a sequence in without needed to do anymore media management.
- Edit the clips as needed into sequences.
- After your clips are edited, just select them and press Command+C to copy them to your clipboard.
5 Switch to an open After Effects project and press Command+V to paste the clips using Dynamic Link. The clips (with handles) will move from Premiere Pro to After Effects.
