    Help to import or batch in MXF files

    I have Master Clips that were not AMA linked to footage and the media is currently MXF files; how to I get them to come back together?

    I am running a Mac with AMC 8.3.0

    Re: Help to import or batch in MXF files

    I'm going to make some assumptions based on the minimal information you've provided.

    Assuming:

    1. These clips were originally imported.

    2. They are regular avid codec op-atom mxf files.

    3. They reside in an Avid Mediafiles/mxf/# folder

     

    All you have to do is open the media tool point it to the proper drive and choose all projects.  The master clips should appear there.  Drag them into a bin.

     

    If that is not your situation, please explain further.

    Hi,

    I found the mxf files, they were in an AvidMediafiles/mxf/computer_name_of_import folder

     

    I now made a new workspace with the folders Avid Mediafiles/mxf/1

     

    the original master clips were made from an offsite location, this provider sent us the media files and bins on a harddrive.  I'm not sure though now if i should batch import or relink via AMA?

    Neither.  Make sure they are in  /Avid Mediafiles/mxf/# folder  at the root of one of your media drives.  Copy the provided bins into one of your projects and the clips should relink automatically.

    Thank you!  I did this for the drive that "wanted" the media on, but for some reason it would not produce the database file(s) for avid to recognize the media.  As a test I went in my project and created tone media to see where the media would be stored; it ended up being a different drive (with your recommended root) so I moved my media there and it is now online (just not in the desired location, but its available which is all that matters).
