They're Avid media, Op-Atom MXF, separate video and audio files, all with ".mxf" suffix. CatDV doesn't mind; there's some metadata that allows them to automatically create a new clip that *works* like a Quicktime movie, but actually has a different icon, a blue folder with "MXF" on it. (Unfortunately, subclips of a metaclip also have the same icon, unlike the little green subclip of a Quicktime.)

The new, CatDV-created clip is what gets logged and sent back to Avid via the MME widget, to great video joy and great audio weeping. There must be a glitch in the new Avid clip's audio-recognition, but whether this was introduced by the CatDV metaclip, the MME translation to AAF or Avid's reading of the AAF, the jury is out.

"non-existent track" indeed. Kinda like when you KNEW the next mouse click was going to give you yet another "Unexpected error." No it wasn't!
