AMA Support... where to DL?
on Sep 1, 2011 at 12:11:33 am

Hey all,

I just finished a shoot where the footage was shot on a Sony EX-3. The studio transferred my footage to a Western Digital HD, and now I want to get the footage into Avid. I just switched from FCP over to Avid a week ago, so this new pipeline is a little different for me. I know I need to download a plug-in for AMA support, but when I search online I cannot find a link to get the correct version. There is an update, but it says you need to have an earlier version for that to work. Since I don't own the camera, I don't have the original file. I thought I might be able to find it online, but so far I've had no luck.

Can anyone tell me where I can download the proper files to get my Avid system to use AMA to read the files shot on the EX-3?

I am running on a Quad Core with Intel Xeon Processors. OS 10.6.8

Thanks!

I'm in the United States and it doesn't have a drop down in the "country" window to select the US. Do you happen to know of a link for US citizens?

BTW, I've checked out Sony's page at:

http://avid.custkb.com/avid/app/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=394827

However, when you click on the link it takes you to a page where you need to contact Sony Technical Support for the upgrade? Do they charge for a simple firmware upgrade? There are tons of editing studios that get footage from Sony Cameras that don't own the exact camera. Is Sony charging just to get AMA functionality?

I don't have any firmware currently installed for the Avid, so I'm starting at square one. I'm going to call Sony tomorrow to follow up on this, but I had hoped to DL the files so I could start capturing tonight...

You're talking about registration? Just select a different country then.

That's true. I wasn't sure if the plug-in would vary from country to country to support different languages on the interface.

No worries Matt, seems like you've found it. Thanks for posting back with the alternative link.

Cheers

Ok everyone, I found the correct page and wanted to share it. I was able to download both the viewer and the plug-in. Both work perfectly.
