Basic question: How do I import and re-link an aaf?
on Mar 31, 2014 at 9:31:27 pm

I'm a flame artist struggling with an aaf that won't import into Flame.

I'm first trying to see the edit in MC7 on Mac. I have a USB drive from the editorial with a master folder of the project, within are an aaf file and a "Avid Media Files" folder with all the mxf media. I can import the aaf and get a bin with all the clips "offline" but how do I get Avid to connect the edit to the mxf files?

We've had problems with aaf before. What I've done in the past is import the aaf into MC7, find a delete the ramped timewarps, then rexport. Flame has no problem reading and reconnecting to the mxf. This time something else is wrong. BTW I've been googling for 4 hours and an still stymied on this reconnecting mxf issue.

For Avid to see the media, they need to be located on a root level of a drive, in a folder called "Avid MediaFiles" (exact name and caps needed), and then in that, an "MXF" folder, and then in that, numbered folders containing the MXF files.

Thanks Shane. I moved the files on the drive to reflect that structure and it worked.

Now to figure out where the pesky bug is.

Try re-exporting the AAF from Avid, but this time check "Use AAF edit protocol"
