Thanks a lot! That's really helpful. My editor showed me this as well.

It's something no one has mentioned to me when setting up an Avid project - that you must have your media sitting in a folder at the ROOT of the drive, in a folder structure labelled EXACTLY like this:

Avid MediaFiles/MXF/1

And the folder labelled "1", must have your MXF files inside it. Then after creating an Avid project on that drive, it will see that there is media sitting in folder "1", and automatically generate a .pmr and .mdb file. Then to import, all I need to do is drag the .mdb (database file) into a bin, from Finder to Avid, and it will automatically import everything in folder "1".

I think this is the same outcome to using the import function in Avid, but instead of Avid creating the MXF files, and putting them in that folder structure, we've done the work first, then Avid's automatically found it. So it's not AMA linked, right?
