I have MC 5.5 and I would like to make a dvd that would contain my film.
I have a project that was shot on Canon 7d and GoPro
mov files have been linked to AMA then transcoded to DNxHD120, mp4 imported
So far I have highlighted my sequence in a bin and send to dvd authoring - i got message that sequence is set to AMA, therefore my export is cancelled
>send to > encoding > sorenson squeeze, similar story
I have checked my sequence and i found that all clips on timeline are transcoded DNxHD120 clips- I am quite new to AMA subject and I might missed something about them.
I have exported my sequence as fast export quicktime pal, imported in sorenson squeeze and picked dvd pal 25 preset, so i could give my director copy for viewing. I am sure that I am doing something wrong or I am just not aware about something simple and obvious.
My knowledge is limited but I will explain our workflow and perhaps this will give you something to consider. In MC I first link AMA, then, before editing into a sequence, I transcode to Avid DNxHD media. It sounds like your sequence is still looking at AMA links instead of actual transcoded media. When going into Encore, I export a QT ref. file of my sequence (which is all transcoded media) I drop the QT ref into Encore and let Encore do the transcoding for DVD. I haven't experienced the issue you describe. Avid MC and Encore are on the same computer (PC for us). From what you describe, I can only say to double check that you have no AMA linked footage.
