hi, I'm relatively new to avid and have been having problems relinking some files. I converted some .mov files into .mxf using DaVinci and then imported the file list into a bin using an .ale. I copied the .mxf files into the Avid MediaFiles directory on my internal hard drive and when i tried to relink the files in the avid bin, nothing happened. In previous projects i was using the avid mediafiles folder on an external hard drive, but that is no longer an option. could that be the issue? Please help!
I never recommend using an ALE file to relink to media. While it may work, it is not consistent. Issue especially arise with the relationship between V and A tracks of the same file as the ALE does not define those relationships well (compared to an AAF for example).
As mentioned, try importing the msmMMOB.mdb from the numbered folder(s) in the Avid MediaFiles/MXF folder structure.
