I've been teaching myself AVID over the past few weeks and I've encountered an issue. I shot some footage on a JVC camera that I want to bring into Media Composer 6.5. The footage, which all total was from around 4-5 cards, retains its original file structure. For example Card_1/PRIVATE/JVC/BPAV/then the contents of the card. I installed the plugin listed for XDCAM footage at http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/pdzk-ma2
When I select "Link to AMA Volume" and choose the folder at the JVC level, it LOOKS like it imports the clips properly, showing all of their data and information.
But when I click on any of them, they all say "MEDIA OFFLINE." How do I fix this problem?
Since I couldn't get Link to AMA Volume to work, I was using XDCAM Transfer to transcode the footage to .MOV files. That worked out ok, but is hugely time consuming as now I have to import the clips into AVID.... of which there are thousands of clips. I have literally been importing non-stop for the past 7 days and I'm only halfway done.
But now I'm encountering an even worse problem. When I import a folder of clips, I keep getting error messages. Most of the clips, save for one or two a folder, will import. I don't know why those clips in particular won't import as they play back fine outside of the program. In the console, I received this message:
