New AAF Importer up on Labs.
At Adobe, we believe in the concept of open, unfettered workflows. This means that you should be able to pick and choose between a wide range of tools. While we always strive for creating a world-class series of applications, we also understand that real-world pipelines don’t always use one set of tools from one vendor.
For this reason, Adobe is always striving for better compatibility between our video tools and other applications using exchange formats. In CS6, we included something called Pro Importer AE with After Effects. This featured AAF and XML file import direct into After Effects CS6, with some nice options how to relink files.
In an effort to bring improved support in Premiere Pro CS6, Adobe now has an AAF Importer available for Premiere Pro 6.01, which has a number of improvements to the existing AAF support.

Currently, we need testing of this on the Mac platform, and this preview release is only available for Mac Users, but as always, keep checking Labs (and this space) for additional information in the future.
It’s VERY important that we get feedback from real-world users and understand your needs for Avid-Adobe workflows, so if you download this preview, please please please participate in the Labs Forum. The more we hear from you, the better we can make this interop technology work.
