    XDcam and Avid Unity/MM Audio issues with tracks 5-8


    We have recently started integrating XDcam media into our Avid Unity system.

    We are using PDZ1 to create aaf files of editlists of clips and then batch importing the high res versions using Avid XP. However despite audio on tracks 5-8 not being generated on the camera and only 4 tracks being selected in the avid import options when we do the import all 8 tracks of audio still appear in Avid-. However Media manager is seeing these audio tracks as offline and thus seeing the files as being incomplete (with blue icon). Any ideas?

    a few things-

    1, can you import an 8Channel Tone media from the audio tool and have it show correctly in Media Manager?

    2. When was your Media Manager last through an IISReset, or if that is greek to you, when was it last restarted.

    3.  Your media manager is older then sin-  and in checking you were advised OVER A YEAR AGO to update that software.  

         The latest version I have seen is 4.5.19-   contact Avid Support about getting the upgrade,  as it patches some SQL items as well.   You have now been told by people from 2 out of the 3 major American Television networks to upgrade,  If you want I will find someone from NBC to tell you the same thing.



    So many systems, so little space. So... everything Avid and a Hyundai Veloster Turbo. [view my complete system specs]
