    AMA relink to native Canon-sourced vid vs. import MXF files from orig = dropped frames?

    I'm trying to understand if I'm missing something here…

    I'm cutting some footage shot on a Canon camera, cutting in MC6.  I want to use a previous rough cut left by another editor, but the project won't AMA relink to the original / raw footage.  AMA relink just fails - everything is grayed out.

    I have both the relevant Avid AMA patch and the Canon AMA patch downloaded & installed.

    Still, the existing timeline/cut refuses to relink to the raw footage (MXF).  I tried various levels of folders in the project - nada.  The producer prefers me to relink instead of importing since he thinks importing will result in lost/dropped frames.

    It seems to import MXF fine - though I haven't viewed it yet... just finishing importing

    Is there some protocol I missed?  it seems like it should be pretty straightforward if relinking is going to work, but the raw footage is grayed out when I'm supposed to select.  The producer wants me to re-install al the plug-ins, but I already just re-installed the canon  AMA - no change.

    Will re-starting the Avid make a diff?

    What Canon camera, and how did the footage originally come into the system?



    Media Composer 2021.5 w/Symphony/SS/PF options, HP Z-Book G6 17", i7-9850H 2.60GHz, 32gb RAM, NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000, Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini... [view my complete system specs]
