Avid - "upstream pipe stall" error
on Jun 11, 2015 at 3:04:45 pm

I keep getting an error message that says "upstream pipe stall" when I'm trying to consolidate video clips that I have AMA'd into Avid. I am using the exact same workflow that I've always used in Avid and has previously worked just fine. So I have no idea what's going on. I have looked this error up online and found no viable solution for me that has worked.

I get this error when I try several clips at once AND when I try one clip at a time. I have re-started Avid and tried again, and I have re-started the whole computer and tried again.

Nothing seems to work and none of the suggestions I've found online have helped. (i.e. run a long YouTube video in the background while you bring them in. which is LUDICROUS, btw!!!!, etc...)

If you have any suggestions, please help. I have spent all together way too long on this crap.

Thanks.

The solution I found was to switch from USB 3.0 BACK to USB 2.0.

A gross oversimplification but here it is: USB 3.0 was causing the information to reach Avid too quickly. Hope this information helps.

WHAT FINALLY WORKED: Ultimately, I had to switch from USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 and then delete (or deselect) the "data track" after AMA linking. I was working with FS7 footage.

I was struggling with this last week. I found that I could transcode most of the clips one at a time, but two were causing this error. I then took the original clips (.mts clips off of AVCHD media), threw them on the desktop, then AMA'd those and they transcoded fine.

I just had this problem recently and had the following work for me on Mac.

System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Uncheck "Put hard disks to sleep when possible."

I think that's a recommended setting for Avid anyway, but I had recently gotten a new computer and forgotten to change that setting. I was transferring a large amount of data from 2 drives and I think they were going to sleep when I got the "upstream pipe stall."
