  • New to Avid - First post

    I have started working on Avid, and have had a few growing pains but we like it a great deal. We were working in a bay trying to create AAF or OMF files on for Pro TOols on a few machines, and we were runing a test to sort things. What we did not realie is that we consolidated media (apparently) and...

  • Media Composer to Logic workflow?

    Hi, I'm having trouble sending sound to a sound designer who is working on Logic. I first tried a standard AAF MXF output, because I was initially led to believe he was working on protools. He wrote back to say he couldn't read the mxf files. So, I exported an OMF 2.0 with wav files and he said...

  • Relinking Media between omf and mxf projects

    Hi All I am sitting with an odd ball! We went off to Toronto and shot an event using xdcam. Came back to SA and ingested all the media obviously being mxf. Our offline editors system (quite old) could only see omf. So we changed the project to omf and consolidated 15:1 for her to cut with. Now that she's...

  • Standard def MXF on MC 2.2.7 ok?

    I've been reading how MXF is the new file format over OMF, and of the advantages of MXF. In my MC Adrenaline 2.2.7 version help file, it says in the topic " Export Settings: QuickTime Compression "... " This format cannot be used by Meridien-based systems. " ... in the description...

  • Re: Moving My Avid Files to My External.

    Hi, good info! Just a follow up: What is proper manual way of moving MXF files? I want to combine MXF files from one drive to another exsisting media drive. I know about Avid's consolidate process but sometimes it's just quicker if you can simply do it in the Finder! ideas? Thanks!

  • OMF, MXF, consolidation?

    I made a film at school on an Avid edit bay. I consolidated a copy of the film and my entire bin to an external hard drive. When I got home to open the project on my copy of Media Composer, I could not get the entire film back. Through hours of figuring it out and looking for forums to get advice, I...
