I am currently working on Avid MC7. I have been editing a documentary for several months now, and have recently encountered a pretty substantial problem with the audio files.
The audio portions of my master clips have been appearing offline, for two different reasons.
1). It seems like some of the audio mxfs have just been disappearing altogether (in which case, I will have to find a way to recapture the source footage).
2). A lot of the audio mxfs that are going offline are locatable in the Media Files folders, but refuse to relink.
I have tried rebuilding the database files several times now, to no avail.
Is there a way to manually choose audio files for relinking? Has anyone else encountered a similar problem?
The tapes are HDV 1080i, 60 fps and were captured using the MC capture tool. Up until recently we haven't had any issues with the media but somehow the audio is just going missing completely or just going offline and unable to be relinked.
I´m not sur if I can be of great help but you might try one thing. Create a new bin and then drag the .mdb file into the open bin. Mc should then populate your bin with all the clips that a within that MAX Folder. If your able to locate your "missing but physically there" audio files you could try to relink them by selecting these clips and the sequence and then relink with the option "relink to selected Clips/in open bins". Did you start the project using Version 7?
