Is there a way to use Lightroom keywords in Premiere Pro?

I use Lightroom to import all my photos and videos onto my computer and I'm finding the lack of communication between Adobe programs rather frustrating. The keywords function in Lightroom works well within Lightroom, but if I tag videos within LR and then try to use the same videos in Premiere Pro the keywords don't carry across, and this really slows down my workflow in terms of video editing.

For videos (and photos too) we need a keywording system that applies the keywords to files at the root level so they're accessible within any Adobe program. It would save so much time having to label footage every time I use particular clips in a new Premiere Pro Project, and also make cataloguing of footage so much easier than the mess it is now.

Have you tried keywording your videos in Bridge? The keywords should carry across to all apps.

But yes, I wish Lightroom could write keywords and other metadata directly into videos.
