    Link to AMA volume won't link to media on network drive

    Mount CIFS volume. "Link to AMA volume". Point to media folders. "No files were linked..."

    BUT

    Drilling down to an Individual MXF and using "Link to AMA file" works.

    There are hundreds of files in this project.

    Link to AMA volume normally fails because: The wrong folder is selected, The folder structure is corrupt or files missing or the AMA plugin is missing (or wrong)

    Re: Link to AMA volume won't link to media on network drive

    Negative on all of these. I am selecting the correct folder. The plugin is there otherwise single file MXF links wouldn't work and the entire folder structure was copied by me personally from the CF card exactly as is.

    There is a PROBLEM with 6.5.2 and AMA with Canon C300!

    Additional info. I thought the problem was isolated to the network drive. Copying all to a local drive yields the same results.

    And one more item. Just tested all withe the same files, path to the network drive in PC MC 6.0.3 and all came in OK.

    There's a similar thread on L-2

    Re: Link to AMA volume won't link to media on network drive

    I have seen some irregularities between Link to File and Link to Volume.  Sometimes one works, but not the other.

    But note, you can shift+select multiple clips with Link to File.  Just select the first clip, scroll down to the last one and shift+select, and all would be highlighted.

    You will have to do this for each folder, but at least you don't have to it for each clip.

    Re: Link to AMA volume won't link to media on network drive

    I had this same issue  with a canon c300   with just 1 card load from the same camera  27 rolls  and when i opened from the card from a reader all was well but not from the hard drive all protocals were the same... so there is some intermittance  in the issue.  I was lucky as I discovered this before formatting card s and was able to transcode the files.  all was well but its a scarry issue with big shoots....

    Re: Link to AMA volume won't link to media on network drive

    I'm on a PC but using 6.5.2 and C300 media.  I use a DAM setup on a networked drive based on CatDV.  I copy a C300 card image into a watchfolder and CatDV moves the files into a permanent location as well as cataloging and creating proxies. Afterwards AMA volume links are not an issue.

    Even taking CatDV out of the process, I can AMA volume link to a card image on a network drive.

    Re: Link to AMA volume won't link to media on network drive

    Seems like this issue is confined to either 6.5.2 or Mac OS 10.8.2 or combination. No Problems on PC 6.0.3

    Re: Link to AMA volume won't link to media on network drive

    I just linked my 6.5.2 system (on OS 10.7.5) to an Xserve partition without issue.  I will try 10.8.2 when I get a chance.
