    Software Engineer contact?

    Greetings,

    We are a file based commercial and film studio and have found moving data to the Avid's/Unity's to be too time consuming.  We have written our own code to create MXF's and metadata to streamline the process. This works very well for us as we have a large render farm that is used to create the MXF's.  However, we are interested in creating AAF's with embedded essence but are having trouble with the Avid's reading them even though as far as we can tell they should work. 

     

    Is there a way to discuss this with an engineer?  Hire an engineer?  Somehow work with Avid on this?  Any tips? In short, what options are there for a studio like us to obtain development assistance from Avid?

    Hi Cable. This is not something that Avid usually does but I will pass your info on to Marianna Montague, Avid's Customer Advocate and she'll contact you soon.

    marianna again.....   Like Todd said, this is not something we normally offer.  I did ask Biz dev and there advice is to contact the Avid salesperson who should be responsible for tyour account.  They have an applications engineer they work with that might be able to assist you.

    The only other advice I can offer is for you to talk to Metaglue.
