UPDATE: Automatic duck is now a FREE plugin. Check out my tutorial on how to use it here: vimeo.com/31589515
Chris Marino from WideOpenCamera.com and I were wondering how I would get an edit to him for grading in AE out of Avid with out having to shell out $500 for the Automatic Duck plugin. We started exploring options and it turns out it's actually quite easy. The obvious route would be EDL but After Effects has no EDL import function. However, Premiere does. Once you use that to get your sequence in and you've relinked it just replace your sequence with an After Effects comp. I don't believe there's a way to get the colored sequence back to Avid but Chris and I are planning to experiment with that and we'll get back to you. Let me know if you guys want to see any other specific Avid tutorials.
