AAF Exporting Issue in Premiere Pro CC 2018

Hi there!

I'm having problems exporting an AAF from Premiere for use in Pro Tools. When I export the audio, all audio clips in the Premiere timeline are in line and in sync. However, after I export as an AAF, the clips are mostly a jumbled mess; out of sync, a minute ahead in some places etc.

I know this is not a Pro Tools problem, as I have tried importing the AAF into Logic Pro, and the same thing is happening. I have attached an image of the audio in the Premiere timeline, and the resulting audio in the Pro Tools timeline.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey mate.

Had the same problem and so far I only found one fix.

You have to write out an XML and open/import it in the old version of Adobe Premiere (11.1.2 is what I use).
You can then write out an AAF from that version and it should work in ProTools.

With the newest version of Premiere my workplace have had major problems with it and AAF-exports. The only real fix we found was always to write out an XML and open it in the old version to export the AAF...

Not good! I really hope they look into it.

Good luck.

Glad to hear others are having this problem. Very annoying to find this out after the edit has finished!

Cheers

For me it's video and audio a total mess on aaf import, the video sequence settings are altered on aaf reimport too. Spent days on it so far - this thread could be the answer. Thanks for posting. Have you guys filed a bug report? I just did.

Hi, solved a workaround. I had to download the trial of Audition and use (in premiere), Edit > Edit in Adobe Audition > Sequence. Then export the OMF/AAF from Audition which seems fine

Is exporting AAF from Audition a new feature in the 2018 version?

ok, I do that, and then make an AAF from that.  But the problem is... in that final AAF - all of the audio channels are the same.  All 6 channels have the same boom track, instead of them all being different.

I encountered the same issue finishing a series at the end of last year, and landed on the same fix (wash XML through Pr 2017).

I opened a support ticket with Adobe and spent a few sessions on the phone with them. In the end we finished the series and I didn't hear back from Adobe, though I'm sure they are now aware of the issue and hopefully working on a fix.

Yep, same problem here, though I'm getting two different errors when exporting from PP version 12.0.0; 'AAFRESULT_INSUFF_TRAN_MATERIAL' and 'AAFRESULT_ADJACENT_TRAN'.

The XML export workaround worked for me, but not 100%.  There are some gaps where transitions should be.  And it was very slow when exporting the AAF from PP version 11.1.2.  At least everything seems to be in sync now.

And on a side note, the option to export an OMF/AAF from Audition was greyed out in Audition version 11.0.0 so I was forced to try the XML export workaround.

I updated to Premiere 12 yesterday and had to export an AAF. I kept getting the AAFRESULT_INSUFF_TRAN_MATERIAL error as well and went through and deleted all transitions and was then able to export the AAF just fine. Fortunately the sound designer that needed it is going to rip it apart anyway. If that's feasible for you, it could be faster and hopefully more reliable than the xml and reinstalling an older version each time.

Also, I'm pretty sure Audition won't export an AAF, I have been looking and it doesn't seem to be an option.

Sorry, I meant to say I exported an OMF from Audition (not AAF)! Unfortunately you can't do AAFs from Audition. Hope Adobe fixes this as it seems like quite a primary issue! Hope this helps. Cheers everyone for your responses.
