    Avid AMA media timecode changes...

    Hi there. I've been AE'ing this documentary for the last four years and over many generations of Avid AMA.

    I was following a typical offline/online workflow, transcoding my media to 14:1 for my editor, and now we're trying to relink back to everything using AMA relink. I'm finding many instances of my online'd AMA clips having different timecode than my 14:1 transcodes. It's very strange. The files are the same, but I don't know which to trust. I'm trying to avoid having to overcut this film if I can avoid it. I've posted an example below. Anyone have any help?

    Mac OS 10.9.5, Avid 6.5.4.4

    Oh I do hope you haven't been upgrading MC over those years?

    AMA has evolved over the last 4 or so mayor releases and QT AMA linking has gone through 3 different ways of assigning timecode to non timecoded sources (Like 5D etc)

    Thanks Pat. I'm sure some clips will have to be overcut, but I started this project back when I was just mounting AMA volumes. As you can see in my example above, I'm really running into this more with P2 media than anything. Any explanation for this change?
