[Avid-L2] MC5 RED AMA to Avid DS - Workflow?

Anyone had much of a play with getting an MC5 RED AMA timeline into DS?

None of the 'smarter' metadata options (AMA or AFE) are available with
AMA-linked media, so as far as I could determine it would be necessary first
to transcode the sequence to an Avid media format before you could use
either of those methods.

I did a basic test with EDL as well - that worked, but it should be noted
that you cant 'send' the sequence to EDL Manager from within MC5, you
instead have to open the bin directly from within the EDL Manager (as the
send to option uses AAF to transfer the sequence to EDL Manager). I had to
use the 'File 16' format, as 'File 32' would include the _001 in the reel
name, which won't then match what DS creates when scanning source files.

Anyone else been playing with it.
