Grouped clips missing from transcode
on Oct 22, 2012 at 5:17:00 pm

I just did a transcode of a few sequences. The reason for this is that the people that wanted them wishes to get them in a specific resolution which was DNXHD 185x. So I did a transcode but the grouped clips from the original sequence are offline on the drive that I put them on. I copied the bin with the transcoded sequences to another drive and I opened it in a new project. Before doing all this I tried to see if anything was offline from the original sequenes but everything was fine.

What is the best way to move forward? Should I use Set Bin Display-Show Reference clips and do some sort of export/mixdown of these clips? Also a lot of the graphics are also offline. Maybe Avid doesn't move the graphics because they are not masterclips? The audio was also offline but maybe this was because I need to tell it to convert the audio to another sample rate or similar to make it move everything.

I can't believe that it's so difficult to move a completely online sequence from one hard drive to another.

Can you recommend some smart way of doing this?

Adam

Had a major problem with this on MC 5.03 last year.

Realized certain codecs would not transcode in a mixed timeline.

Basically, using "Show Reference Clips" I was able to identify the clips that were not transcoded and did them one by one. Something tar should have been way became an all nighter.

I was told to try to consolidate instead and I did but there are still certain clips that are omitted for some reason.

What can I do? Maybe connect the disc that has the original avid mediafiles and do a Batch Import or something? Maybe doing a mixdown from the original sequence of the parts that I am missing? Wouldn't take that long but I find it hard to believe that the consolidation feature works so poorly in Avid 5.5.3.

I found the solution to be to just consolidate once again and remember to have the same settings as before. And also check the "skip media already at destination drive". When I did this everything was moved. I guess sometimes Avid won't move everything. But just keep consolidating until it gets it done.
