    Trouble with EDL manager

    Hi there! i'm new in this community, this is my first post, and i have a trouble with my project. I go to Output - EDL - in Avid EDL Manager i click in Get Sequence, and this error appears.

    Encountered exception 'Exception: DISK_INVALID_FILENAME_SYNTAX, filename:MVI_5481 ' 

    When i continue on import, appears this error:

    The AAF file received by EDL Manager is not valid. Get Sequence failed.

    I try this things to solve the problem:

    -I rename the name of file

    -I change the name of mxf

    -I eliminate the file and mxf.


    I've the same error, i don't know what else to do.


    Another question:

    When i export in aaf i have this report:

    Some destinations specified in the export options are not avaliable:
    Destination for consolidated, transcoded, mixed-down, or copied video media is locked [dl->GetFileLock()] 

    Thank you and 
    sorry for the inconvenience.

    Re: Trouble with EDL manager

    Often the trick to getting EDL manager to work is to use the following workaround.


    1: Open EDL manager


    2: Select "open" under the file menu


    3: Point to the bin with your sequence in it inside the Avid project


    4: if it is the only sequence in the bin, it will automatically load. If there is more than 1 sequence, it will ask which one you want.


    Good luck.

    I know this thread is ludicrously old, and sorry for the bump, but the "Get Sequence" option has always driven me bonkers and using this method has resulted in my first hassle free EDLs in Avid.  Thanks!
