C300 to Avid AMA issues
on Jul 4, 2015 at 2:24:28 pm

Hi all... I have a fair whack of C300 footage to get in this week but I can't get Avid 7 to AMA it in as an entire folder.
I can open the clips individually but I have hundreds and hundreds, so doing them one at a time will be a pain, since I also have 5 other formats to process too.

The folder structure is as follows:

Offloads/20150607_C300_01/CONTENTS/CLIPS001/AA0004 and so on.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

is your ama setting set to auto detect, or have you specifically told it to link to the c300 footage. (sometimes autodect is bit flakey)

Also, I would try the Alt drag method.

open a bin in avid
open an explorer/finder window on your screen, Make your way to the c300 folder you want to access. Click on it, and as you drag it to your bin, hold down the alt button. This is another way of doing an ama link, and I find it quite usefull. (if avid says its creating media cancel and try again, as the keystrokes were released too soon, or done in the wrong order) I find quite often I have to hold the alt button and the mouse button for an extra second or two over the bin before releasing to get the computer to accept what im doing.
