As I mentioned yesterday I've written a script which transforms Premiere Pro (cs4) EDLs into Fusion flow.

The Simple EDL Importer script is free, you can download from here or visit the microsite of the product.

The PRO version is 40$/seat, here is a demonstration video:

***Update 07-02-2014***
AVID is the 5th supported editing system

***Updated 03-11-2012***
PRO EDL Importer v1.72beta brings several improvements and a new feature.
ColorCurves nodes can be added to the flow.
Flow creation has been sped up by ~40%.
Timespeed tool handles reverse speed properly.

***Updated 21-03-2011***
- The script supports Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas Pro and Edius 6.
- Read the script's user guide for more information.

***Updated 12-07-2012 ***
- Final Cut Pro support and other improvements

I hope you like it, crits and comments are welcome!
Cheers,
Peter Bako

I plan to extend the features of the script in the future. If there is demand other editing programs will be supported. Which one do you prefer? SVP got one vote.

Well I vote for Sony Vegas as it's in my opinion more powerful than Premiere and more user friendly for someone who comes from Smoke/Flame world.
Doesn't need to transfer anything fancy, just editing, maybe non-linear speed-ups/slow-downs, dissolves etc.

I haven't tested the script with CS5 EDLs. If the structure of the EDL is the same the script will work. Send me a CS5 EDL and I'll chek it. Put everything (clips, dissolves, etc) to the first video track and export them as you've seen in the demonstartion video.

I have finished the beta version of the new script. The script can read TXT files generated by Sony Vegas Pro. But before the new version is released i would like to send it for beta testers. So if you use Sony Vegas Pro or GV Edius 6 drop me an email (some references are appreciated) and i will pick 2-4 of you for beta testers.

Thanks in advance,
Peter

The new version of the Simple EDL importer is ready, you can download it from the website. It has improved R3D functionality so the script handles the Absolute or Edge timecodes from the EDL file.

The PRO EDL importer is in beta stadium. The v1.5_beta supports Vegas and Edius too. If you are interested, I've attached the UI and you can download the users manual from here. (Workflow videos will be available when the release version is ready)
