I am trying to AMA link and transcode Canon C300 media. On longer clips, it will do the first 2-3 minutes then crash. I believe I have the latest AMA plug ins installed.

OS 10.7.5

What are you transcoding too? An offline codec, or online codec? I've simply consolidate files from the C300, as they are already MXF. But if you want to go offline quality...yeah, you'll have to transcode.

Let me test when I get home...

The most recent was updated a week ago. Is that the one you have?

Just consolidate. It'll take up around the same space

I'm transcoding because the media is shot 23.97. Our project is for broadcast so 59.94. I was having problems when consolidating 23.97 XF and then opening that media in a 59.94 project. Plus we have multiple formats, framerates in our project. I want it to be as uniform as possible.

Ah...that makes sense.

Make sure to get the latest AMA plugin, as mentioned, one came out last week.

As an alternative answer.

We've had problems in the past with C300 and spanning clips, where the problem turned out to be corrupt files coming off the original shoot card. Footage was copied from the card to a hard drive. We were transcoding from that hard drive, or a copy of that hard drive. Was finding some of the longer clips were crashing. If i put those same clips through Resolve, they didn't crash. Upon closer inspection I found black frames in the clips coming from resolve. In the end we kinda decided there was a problem with the original shoot files. Avid would crash out, while Resolve would just ignore the bad frame and move on.

Try a file in Resolve and see what you get.

This is not a c300 problem. The transcoding works fine in other versions of Avid (i´ve tested it in thoroughly), but on MC7 i´m having huge problems with what you are describing. Has anyone made progress with this?
