Looking to create a qt reference movie so I can send the sequence to SonicPro to add music. I click on the sequence in the bin to export and I get the window that says
"Exception: Quicktime reference exports cannot be performed on clips linked via AMA or on sequences containing media linked via AMA."
I understand. I have some AMA and imported clips on the timeline. So I went to consolidate/transcode. The first 3 times I got 2 timelines in my bin labeled Consolidated .01 and .02 respectively. The third time I got one labeled Transcoded.01.
The fourth time I got multiple duplicates of all my clips in my Sequence bin.
I'm doing something very wrong. The sequence is only 1:40 min long.
You don't want a consolidate as that only brings the same codecs as a copy into an Avid managed folder structure. Transcode is correct and it will make .new clips for every even in the timeline. Sometimes the easiest way is to just do a video and audio mixdown, throw them into a timeline and export that out as QT reference. But then again, with a timeline so short, why does it need to be a reference? Just export am H.264 movie directly.
