Relink low res clips to AMA- MC 7
on Feb 21, 2014 at 12:42:32 am

Hi there,

I need some help with relinking AMA during uprez.

My workflow is as follows:

  • AMA link clips from drive
  • set Tape name
  • Transcode to offline res
  • Delete AMA clips
  • Edit offline with transcoded clips

Once edit is locked off :
  • Unmount all drives
  • insert original disks
  • Go to-->Relink )Highest quality/by source name/any video


It doesn't relink

I have run a few tests and I have noticed I will be able to relink only if i keep the original AMA files I transcoded them from. But this is not possible as I have deleted this clips. Even if I bring them into avid again by AMA link and set tape name again, it won't link.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

You didn't need to delete the original AMA master clips. Just save them in a bin somewhere.

When ready to relink you have to re-mount the AMA clips you need. So show ref clips on the final sequence and choose to see columns source path and source file. Sort by those and you have a list of the AMA folders/files you need to AMA mount.
once they are AMA mounted you may find the sequence links to them automatically or you may have to do a re-link on the sequence.

Hi,

Pat's right, you don't have to delete the original AMAs, at our place we keep them in a separate bin.

When it's time to relink just open the AMA bin, select all files, then select your sequence (so you have all the AMA files and your sequence highlighted) then hit relink and make sure you select 'link to files in selected bins' (or however it's phrased) which is the second option down at the top of the relink window.

Hope this helps.

Jon

Jons instructions will work if the original AMA clips are still linked and play ok.
If they have gone offline you will need to re-mount the required AMA sources before you can re-link them.

Actually it works even if they're offline, we do it here for creating AAFs with the original clip file names for sending to Resolve.

It works because the AAF then contains the links to the sources and in resolve you add the sources to the media pool and it can re-link.
The OP isn't going via Resolve so to have online media in MC you need the original AMA sources to be online in MC first before you can relink to them.
Yes for sending to Resolve you just need the sequence no media need be online.

Yeah, I'm aware how it works with going to resolve, and didn't suggest the clips would be viewable if the AMAs were offline- Just that the relink process works regardless of the media being online.

Hopefully OP's problem is sorted one way or the other now...
