I used the trial version to transfer a small test project from AVID to FCP. I followed the instructions in the tutorial video and tried also a couple of different other ways to export from AVID.
When importing in FCP I only get a offline Sequence and some offline clips. The name of the clips does not correspondent with any of the mfx files. I can’t understand how to connect one Clip to three different mfx files (V1,A1,A2).
Could it be, that the transfer only works with Mac based AVIDs?
In this case, you have a single clip, which has V1, A1, A2. Avid creates an MXF for each. Going to FCP, our plugin links only to one, because in FCP, you cannot have a single clip link to more than one file path.
Well I gave it a complete workout (tryout) about 5 days and the tutorial promotional videos are too good to be true. We tried it with 5 different final cut machine, more than 20 sequences, three veteran editors on AVID & FCP, some of the results did absolute nothing all gave different results with the same sequences none were any good. Sure we got great results with short sequence edits with 5 cuts or so. But we unfortunately came to the conclusion that it just does not work.
I’m hoping you could prove us wrong very soon, but for now I do wish you luck, because we could use a most needed piece of software.
I would really like to help figure out the issues you are seeing with Boris AAF Transfer. I realize that it is very frustrating to get unexpected results. If you would be willing to send me some examples with explanations, I could try to see what's going on and might be able to help. You can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - I would need either the FCP project file, or FCP exported XMLs of the sequence(s) you are trying to export to AAF.
Unfortunately I lost that job, I took a week, almost 2 weeks, trying to get AAF Transfer to work on about 25 sequences, edited on FCP ver 7, so that I could finish the project on an Avid MC. They wear very basic edits; the finishing was going to be done on the Avid side. It was a big job, about 18hours of finish content. I had no luck, and support was to slow, I lost the time and the job hopefully not the client. I have no access to those sequences or information. Hope the AAF Transfer
gets better as more editors help to debug it.
