You can use Adobe Prelude to ingest clips, transcode footage, create subclips markers and rough cuts, and then import that data into Adobe Premiere Pro.
You can use Prelude’s clip naming and metadata features to quickly create subclips, build a rough-cut assembly, and send it to Premiere Pro as a sequence for immediate editing. You can then export rough cuts, clips, subclips, and bins from Prelude to an Adobe Premiere Pro project for editing.
For more information on using Adobe Prelude, see Adobe Prelude Help.
You can export rough cuts, clips, subclips, and bins from Prelude to an Adobe Premiere Pro project or FCP XML file. Alternatively, you can send the rough cut to Adobe Premiere Pro directly for editing.

The file is exported. You can now import or open the project file in Adobe Premiere Pro.
