Tip 5: How to Import Sequences from Other Premiere Pro Projects
Some editorial systems let you have two projects open at once; others don't. Premiere Pro doesn't.

You Can Import Nearly Everything
Welcome to the brave new world. Adobe Premiere Pro can import nearly anything: all the card formats (such as P2 or XDCAM), and footage that's greater than HD sizes (such as RED and ARRIRAW)—even DVD video object files (VOBs) and Flash FLV files. The best trick is just to point Adobe Premiere Pro at the footage and see whether it works.
