Converting a Timeline from AVI to QuickTime

I'm doing advanced post - color correction/sound/filmlooking on a Mac dual 2.5 gig G-5 w/FCP hi-def, BlackMagic 8 bit (un-compressed) as well as Magic Bullet hi-def, of a project that was acquired on DVCAM and film and roughed out to a time line using premier 6.5 (the new system was only recently made avail., else we would have began on the FCP HD), and I would like to know if anyone knows how we can convert the time line from the current avi files to the QuickTime files on the Mac. I would like to avoid having to re-load all the individual clips again ! As it is thus far, the project was converted over as one big file. One problem (you could probably think of a few) is that even though I make a razor cut to a particular clip, when I apply color correction I can hear the fans kick in on the fluid-cooled procís: itís applying cc to the entire file and displaying the small clip in the monitor window (as well as pulling up to ten sound tracks too)! Now I know this is a tough system, but itís still just a computer and is subject to crashes, etc. Does anybody know how to convert the time line out to QuickTime ? This v.(6.5) of Premier isnít equipped with the right EDL export program.

Now it's been a while that I used Premiere, but when you go to
File -> Export -> Movie (I hope I have that correct) you should be
able to pick QuickTime as the output format in one of the dialogs
there. Then choose the codec you want (uncompressed, DV,
sorenson, cinepak etc.) and off you go (make sure all the export
settings are correct like resolution, framerate, interlaced/progressive
