Importing FCP 7 Footage into Avid Media Composer 6?
on May 25, 2013 at 9:57:16 pm

Hi,

I'm new to Avid. I am coming from Final Cut Pro 7.

Here's my first question.

I have captured a Mini-DV taped footage, 1440x1080i into Final Cut. It is a QT file (9.29 GB) and it's 48 minutes long.

I have tried to import that file into Avid, by hitting Import ---- and then I go find this file and it then it is really, really slow to import in Avid. I alway stop it because I can see how long it's going to take.

How can I get this clip to import into Avid a lot faster?

Do I need an AMA? (I've never used one so I don't know how they work? Or can I change some settings inside Avid to make it import faster

Thanks in advance.

You can AMA link to, and work with the footage like that. "Import" is almost instantaneous, and you'll be up and editing in seconds.
