    AMA TAPE NAME - AVID Please add the Ability to Read Tape/Reel from QTs

    I am well aware that I can create an EDL and duplicate columns to complete a conform or deal with a relink issue.

    I just feel that at this point .MOV is everywhere and like Premire, Final Cut, and Resolve, Avid should have by now already added the ability to bring QTs in using AMA and keep TAPE NAME from the source files.

    It is a huge waste of time to have to transcode or encode media to MXF format, so that regardless of what NLE Editor or Finishing System we need to jump or share media with we have the ability to relink. Being able to continue to use AAFs for conform has been far more benficial than an EDL. At least it has been here at Universal.

    I don't know what it would take to have this option added to Avid but I can tell you we are moving away from Avid the same way our creative Vendors and using Premiere and Resolve more and more.
