Add an additional clip to a group clip
on Jun 5, 2014 at 1:29:16 pm

Hi there-

If I have a group clip consisting of 2 camera angles, is there a way to add a third angle without recreating a separate group clip?

Additionally, if one of those angles are being linked via AMA, is there a way to relink that AMA angle to the transcoded master clip version once all the selects have been made?

Appreciate your assistance in advance.

You can't add a new angle to an already existing group clip in Avid. Hopefully, this feature will be added. Avid group clips are rock solid and have been for a long time, while other NLEs have struggled to get multicam working at all...but they have now fallen behind the competiton as far as features are concerned.

Thanks, John.

The reason I did it this way was that I didn't want to wait for the transcode to begin working on my edit so I grouped an AMA file into my bin. The hope was to swap it out once I finished the transcoding. Being that isn't possible, do you have any recommendations on achieving a similar solution so I dont have to continue working wiht an AMA in my group clip? I haven't had the best of luck using AMA as a long term editing solution.

If you relink the master clip to the transcoded file, using the relink dialog, does the group clip update and link to it as well?

I relinked the transcoded file to my "selects" sequence in the bin. This sequence had the AMA'd group clip in the timeline and the AMA relinked to the transcoded file without a problem. Thanks for your assistance.
