    MC Catalina - won't import .mp3

    Hello,

     

    Just updated to Catalina and have Avid 2020.5 (the latest).  I have some .mp3 that Avid is telling me is not a suported format, the quicktime I am assuming.  I'm wondering is the only way to convert it outside Avid or is there a work around within AVID. Also, I'm a bit confused on what format I should convert it to if that's the only way.

     

    Thanks

    Re: MC Catalina - won't import .mp3

    Thanks Ralph, but that document isn't very clear to me. It's states that I can import .mp3 using UME, which is taking over AMA. I am assuming this is all under the hood.  Is there a clearer explanation on steps to take to import .mp3?

    Have you tried to link rather then import? If you can link it you should be able to transcode inside MC.

    Re: MC Catalina - won't import .mp3

    Shoot Avid support a message. I had two different issues trying to link mp3's in 2020.4 and they fixed it in 2020.5. Looks like they need to do a bit more work on this bug. For the meantime the work around is to convert it to wav or something prior to link in Avid.

    You can also shoot me a message and I can enter the case.  Include your system ID and MyAvid email and any crash reports or any steps to reproduce this one.
