    Importing mov files into Avid

    Hi all -


    I have a lot of Canon footage which I thought I could AMA link into my project. The footage opens in QT - H264, 1920 x 1080 16 bit, 23.98 FPS, no problems. When I try to AMA link it in using the Auto detect AMA plugin I get Avid Editor Services are not Running. Please start Services from the Avid Editor Services Manager and if I continue  I get Invalid file name. HELP! I tried converting to mp4 and then importing which worked but took a long time. PLease, guys and gals there must be something I am missing or a workflow. Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lise


    PS I did update my system

    Invalid file name - do the files themselves, OR ANY FOLDER in the entire path to that file, have any characters such as slashes or anything else aside from numbers, letters, underscores, and dashes that might be a problem?  Again, any folder in the path to the file can cause that, even if it's multiple layers up.

    If so, rename that file or folder and try again.

    Which version of Media Composer, what kind of computer, and which operating system?  Please note that this forum "Media Composer | First" is actually for a different product by that name - and any questions about Media Composer should go in the Mac or PC forum.
