Hi. So a singer has asked me if I can carry on editing their music video for them, lip-syncing, transitions, titles etc to give it a more professional look. They've done most of the work in iMovie on their Macbook. I use Premiere Pro on Windows. Is there anything that they can do at their end, convert it etc to keep all the editing layers in tact for me to open in Premiere Pro and start off where they left? Hope somebody can help me!!

It's not simple, but you may be able to make this work the way I did a few years ago but most of the process requires working on a mac.  You can bring an imovie project in to fcpX (I think there's a free trial). from there you can export an xml.   you can then import the xml into davinci resolve (there's a free version) and then you can export an xml from resolve that will import into premiere.   I had no luck bringing the xml from fpcx directly into premiere but import and export out of resolve did work.  Linking to the media may be a little tricky but should be doable... There's a program that will allow you to read a macosextended drive on a windows machine and a program from the same people that will allow a mac to read and right to a windows drive.  Not sure how that will work with the newer mac partition scheme...   This is the company that makes both of them. https://www.paragon-software.com/us/main-page/.  Might be simpler just to bring it into fcpX and figure out a way to generate a timecode window that reflects the source timecode and rebuild it in premiere...
