Re: Relinking to AMA for colour correction in Media Composer - preferred workflow?

Best thing to do would be to AMA link back to the originals, and then either transcode to a higher end DNxHD format, like 175 or 220, or grade the originals. And then either export as ProRes HQ, or do a video mixdown to ProRes HQ, and then export.

The tricky part is the last thing you mentioned...exporting via AAF to Premiere so that the color corrections stay. Because if you grade in Avid, the grade is, in essence, a "plugin." An effect applied to the clip. If you export an AAF that references the original media, and Premiere opens that...the color correction effect might not (realy likely that it won't) transfer.

So, your best bet is to do the mixdown, and then export that via AAF. That way the effect is baked in, and you have one video file, but still have all the separate audio clips....and that's really important for doing cut downs.
