How do I import OMF file into Premiere? Has Exported out OMF file from Premiere earlier and made finishing in ProTools, and will now import the OMF file back into Premiere. Is this possible? If not what is the easiest solution? We will do some cutting changes, it would have been fine with sound in sync.
Thanks for your post. As per the workflow Premiere pro can export the OMF files but It is unable to import the OMF files. The OMF's are not in the supported list of audio formats that Premiere Pro imports. The format supported for importing in Premiere pro are listed below. You can import the file if you change the format of the audio using any third party converter and then export it again in OMF.
AC3 (including 5.1 surround)
ASND (Adobe Sound Document)
AVI (Video for Windows)
BWF (Broadcast WAVE format)
M4A (MPEG-4 Audio)
mp3 (mp3 Audio)
MPEG, MPG (MPEG Movie)
MOV (QuickTime; requires QuickTime player)
MXF (Media eXchange Format; P2 Movie: Panasonic Op-Atom variant of MXF, with video in DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO HD,
AVC-Intra; XDCAM HD Movie, Sony XDCAM HD 50 (4:2:2), Avid MXF Movie)
WMA (Windows Media Audio, Windows only)
WAV (Windows WAVeform)
OK... so you're telling us that you can shoot over audio to audition, edit it, but can only bring back a fully bounced session? That... kinda sucks.
There is a lot more functionality in this round trip with latest versions.
eg export back with stems., xml etc...
Sometimes you have to try stuff for your self.
what he said
This is what worked for me (Premiere 2015.2, Build 41 and Audition 2015.1, Build 220.127.116.11):
Open the OMF file in Audition
Audition will prompt you to create a new folder to store the new files
The file will open with the media on it's original tracks
Create a sequence in Premiere
Return to Audition
Choose "Multitrack" from the menu in the top left
Choose "Export to Adobe Premiere"
The audio will now be exported to separate tracks in Premiere
Just tried this with CC 2017 and al the levels were set to 0db on all the clips. Is this something to do with constant power not being supported.
The thing that worked for me was to export a FCP XML out of Audition and then import that into Premiere. Bit wonky and I agree PPro would do well to allow OMF import, seems like it wouldn't be that hard.
Clearing the cache did the trick for me.
I had this same issue on cc 2020. My files were fine with no special characters. I cleared the cache and it worked.
