Anyone knows if it's possible to export a Premiere Pro project (possibly a CS4 project) into Final Cut 6.0.6 and how should it be done?

Thanks in advance!

    Premiere Pro fo Mac or PC?
    The PC version captures footage and wraps it in an AVI container. Final Cut Pro works with QuickTime.
    You will need to recapture the footage if it was originally done on a PC version.

    Can Premiere Pro export an EDL?
    It's primitive but at least your shots will be in the right order and length. No filters or effects will be carried across though.

    You don't necessarily need to recapture footage.
    You could reconnect footage to your project (after EDL import) if the former is
    some editing format (DV, HDV) captured and stored in a portable drive carrying the same media with same names.
