In Final Cut Pro > Right Click on the Sequence to Export to AVID and choose to Export>
Automatic Duck Pro Export FCP


Choose > AAF
And click on Edit Settings


Choose

AAF

Effects – Avid Compatible

Video – Create externally linked files (MXF)

Project Type VERY IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE THE SAME FRAME RATE AND ASPECT RATIO OF THE FCP SEQUENCE

 In our case we had a 1080 59.94 Final Cut project so we chose that as the Project Type too!!

Note that what you choose changes the compression of the resulting AVID Media

Audio – Choose to Embed audio media into AAF file

Choose Entire clip – had better luck choosing this but if you only want to include handles give it a try.  We had crashes trying to get that to work.


Use these settings for 1080 23.976 projects

Note what aspect and frame rate delineates what
Compressions are available to choose from.



Choose what to Save the file
As

Choose where to save the
File and then click on

Save


Processing of the data will
begin


The resulting files will be
.html
.aaf
and a folder of .mxf files to
be copied over to the
AVID MediaFiles folder for
AVID to read and link the
Footage to the new AVID project.




Next step is to copy all the converted files from the newly created folder over to the AVID MediaFiles>MXF>1 folder.  

Then launch AVID and create a new project with the same aspect ratio and frame rate of the converted media.

Within AVID project go to File>Import and navigate to the .aaf file and select it for import

You must h
ave a BIN selected in order to import the file.


Make sure you have the correct storage drive selected when importing the file


Select   “Open”


Sequence will load into AVID and link up with audio and video files into a AVID timeline exactly like the FCP timeline.
