Importing Prores to MC7
on May 21, 2014 at 11:17:12 am

Hi, I have a programme master file saved as ProresHQ (exported from FCP7), I want to import it to Avid MC7 so I can then use Media Composers 'AMA Export File' option to create an AS-II xml for file delivery.

My problem is that if I convert the Prores on import to AVCintra 100 or DNxHD 185x, the levels are affected, blacks rise and whites drop and chroma drops too, easily seen from the color bars on the clip I'm importing. The effect is the same with AVCintra 100 or DNxHD 185x, so consistent at least. Since this is an online I need to keep the final levels that are in the master ProresHQ file.

I don't understand why levels would shift. I'm trans coding the file during import, is that a wrong thing to do?
Or am I missing an import setting in MC?

I have tried taking in the Prores file as Quicktime using AMA Linking, which keeps the levels accurate but I get a fail on the AS-II Export, where both AVCintra 100 or DNxHD 185x work fine for the export.
