Sorry to be lame, but I just upgraded to MC 5.5.3 from MC 4.0.5 in order to edit footage shot on a Sony EX3, which are XD Cam EX files. I can't seem to figure out how to bring them into the Avid. I downloaded and installed the appropriate plug-in from Sony's site (I think) which was PDZK-MA2_v1_2 AMA Plug-In. I've been scanning the forums about what to do from here in terms of importing and linking to AMA volumes, but I really can't figure it out. I've not worked with XD Cam files before. I'm under a big deadline, so if anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it!
BTW, I'm edting on a MacBookPro laptop, 2.4 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB ram, OS 10.6.4, with video card NVIDIA GeForce 9400M.
Thanks, I was finally able to do this, as there were "slashes" in the names of the files that prevented them from being seen.
Another quick question: Since I have two hour files, and don't need access to all of it, do know a way of transcoding just portions of clips? If if I transcode them at a lower resolution, will this partially transcoded clip be able to re-link to the original footage when I try and up-res my final sequence?
