total newbie question here...new to Avid and a new camera as well.
Shooting xdcam on the Sony PMW-300. Most of my projects will be for direct upload to youtube.
On my first edit attempt I was using AMA, but I had trouble sending the sequence to Sorenson. Export directly to Quicktime worked just fine, but I wasn't happy with the result of uploading the quicktime file to youtube.
On my second edit attempt, I didn't bother with AMA and imported all of the clips. Seemed to go to Sorenson ok, however the result was audio only with a white screen.
Is it my understanding that you must transcode the sequence before sending it to Soreneson?
