Hi everyone,

I'm linking C300 footage via AMA, to then consolidate it to mxf files.
But when I go "Link to AMA volume" and select the memory card folder, only one of the folders gets "imported"

For example, there 3 folders:


and just the files in "CONTESTS" get imported.

However, I can use the "Link to AMA FILES" function, and I can individually import all the other files.
But it's a much longer process...

Any ideas on how to import the other folders as VOLUMES as well?

Thanks a lot!

DO you get an error when you try? What is that error? Is the full card structure intact on the others? DOes it match what you have with CONTESTS?

AMA just ignores some of the folders inside "CONSENTS"
There were folders names CLIPS001, CLIPS002 and so on.
I just created fresh new parent folders for them and seems to work.

An other thing is that, when I couldn't mount the full volumes, I tried linking xmf files one by one. It worked but then in the bin I had small (2 GB) files named NAME01, NAME02, NAME03 etc. They were like pieces of a bigger take. Would that give us problem to online them?

I just started the whole process from the beginning. It's more comfortable to work with the "real takes".

Thanks again. I am slowly (but happily) moving back into AVID
