FCP to AVID - Questions about bins and relinking
on Dec 8, 2011 at 7:39:44 pm

Hey guys,

New to the forum.

So I have a question that I hope can be answered.

I originally started my project in FCP7 (only because Media Composer 5.5 wasn't working properly, and then later found out it was because I was running Lion, but anyhow)

So I cut about an hour of a rough cut and then upgraded my Media Composer to 6.0 and voila, everything worked fine again. So now I wanted to move my FCP7 project back into MC 6.0.

So I used Automatic duck to get my sequence (using AMA relink) back into MC. So that worked, but obviously all of my files are offline. So I then exported a Batch List from FCP and then using AVID LOG EXCHANGE, I converted the Batch List into an ALE file and imported it into MC 6.0. So far so good. All of the bins and sublicps are now in MC 6.0

The only thing left to do is relink all of my media, but here is where it gets sticky.

The film is shot on the RED in 4k. So using RED CINEX, I had originally transcoded all of my RED files into Apple Pro Res at 1280x720, 23.976. I then imported them into FCP7 and started cutting.

But now that I'm in MC6, I imported the original RED files using AMA and then simply transcoded all of my files using the DNXHD36 codec.

Now then, is there a way to relink all of the subclips from the bins that I imported from FCP7 to this new DNXHD36 footage? This would save me having to go through the entire project and orgainzing all of my shots into separate takes and scenes...

Do I perhaps have to simply modify the information in the original Batch List that came from FCP in order for the file names to be exactly the same?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Geoff, I have a similar problem. Did you ever solve this one?
