Conforming a 90 minute movie, finalizing in premiere
on Mar 17, 2016 at 4:00:03 am

Guys.. i have a tricky question...

1. I have a movie which was edited with AMA link, then converted entirely in MXF 1:!1 and now we need to go back to original media, which is located on another drive.. whats the best way to do that.

2. we need to export AAF or EDL from avid and reconnect everyone in premiere.. has anyone successfully done that?

Did you move the original media after you AMA linked? Or is it on the same drive that you linked from, but different drive than the converted media? Hope so, that's the way you should do it. If you did, then I'd duplicate the sequence, open the AMA media bins, and relink to the originals.

THEN I'd try to export an AAF to Premiere...so it brings over the linked originals. I don't think there's any way to export an AAF to Premiere, and then try to relink. Media Management is not Premiere's forte....

The fact that you transcoded to 1:1 doesn't change the process of creating an AAF or EDL as either of those will reflect the original file name used to create the MXF media. Since you want to conform to camera originals, then it is a matter of just generating either the AAF and EDL and then it is up to Premiere to conform to the camera originals. As an example, with Resolve, you would add the camera originals to the Media Pool, import the AAF and choose "link to camera originals".

yes MXF files are on one drive, originals on another with same file names.. but originals were AMA linked

so what if we go trough resolve and then to Premiere? is that the way to do it?

It might be - I am not familiar as to how Premiere works for relinking to really be able to give you steps, but Resolve has certainly been used before as a Rosetta Stone to get timelines back and forth between various NLE's. Give it a short test sequence and let us know.

OR...edit in Avid...AAF to Resolve, relink to originals...grade, render out separate files, XML to Premiere for whatever finishing you need done there...
