"and most definitely isnt something you are going to find on an avid, especially on export. Try AMA if you need to get the video in reliably"

Actually with version 6 software the ProRes workflow is now native, skipping QT. If you import ProRes files into Media Composer and compress to Avid ProRes MXF, then it's a "Fast Import". This means the file is copied and rewrapped from MOV to MXF. A subsequent export to ProRes QT using " same as source" is completely transparent with the original. So a roundtrip using either AMA or import is seamless. The one caveat is when the QT decoder is invoked, such as when frame rates don't match. In that case, the QT decoder decompresses the ProRes file and presents Avid with incorrect levels and you get a gamma shift.
