I was given folders full of folders and files of music, sound effects, and graphics from a client. I go to drag and drop the folders into separate bins in my avid projects (like I would in FCP), and I keep getting the error "The file format of (name of folder) is not supported for import.
But when I just import an individual file from those folders, it comes across fine. That is not only incredibly time consuming, but would also mean I would have to re-organize all the existing folders in AVID if each file has to be brought in individually. Also, I can't figure out how you make folders within bins either to even organize things in such a way.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that in Avid. You can't have folders inside bins, but you can have multiple folders in a Project, and each folder can contain bins and/or subfolders. You will have to manually create those, though, and you can only bring stuff into a single bin at a time.
