    Special characters (ÆØÅ) Avid 5.0.1

    I work at a place where we use a laptop with Avid 5.0.1 installed to preview the latest edits of episodes, promos etc. The editors use 6.0.3. On our unity we have a music archive with MXF files, which of some are named with names including the letters Æ, Ø or Å, and my guess that this is the problem and reason to why some files from this music archive can't be played at the Avid 5.0.1 station, but I wanted a confirmation.

    Does Avid 5.0.1 support MXF files with special characters such as ÆØÅæøå, or would this be a good explanation to why the music won't play?

    Thanks in advance

    Bottom line, don´t use local keys, I stopped doing that when Internet was young, you can add edit commands to them and that´s about all you can do.

    And yes, using those in filenames are most likely the reason to your problems so, again, don´t use them, the only usage might be in the subcap generator where you have to use them.
