Re: [Avid-L2] AMA Managed media [Was: bin won't open]

 

On Mac, you'll find them in Users/Shared/AvidMediaComposer/AMA Management.

There will be a folder for every AMA disk you have ever mounted in MC7.x with a .pmr file, an .mdb file and an .aaf file in it.

Add that to your troubleshooting list for AMA media problems, if you haven't already.

No, there is not.  If you look where they are stored, there is basically a folder for every AMA volume you have every mounted since you first launched MC 7.  

 

On Mac, it's in User/Shared (I don't remember more than that...not in front of a system now.)

Lou,

I don't recall if you are working in MC 7 or not.

 

MC 7 introduced managed AMA media.  This is similar to the way media databases are created with traditional avid media.  One notable difference is the databases are on the system volume and not the media drive.  These databases can get corrupted just like regular media databases can.  

 

You can turn off AMA managed media in the console.

What is this "Disabledres file" you speak of.  Can I safely assume it is a file with a text list of resolutions that are to be disabled?  Where and how does one access and modify this file?

On a related note does Avid have a DiableProducer file with a similar function.  I can think of a few names I'd like to add to that file.  ;-)

If it's a plain USB 2.0 drive, your bottleneck may be the interface rather than the drive mechanism.  If so, buy a USB 3.0, FireWire 800, or eSATA dock.  Pull the drive mechanism out of the box, stick it in the dock.  Edit with AMA.  I've done this, even with slow/cheap (5400 rpm "green") raw drives; it works.

Believe it or not I have avoided this up until now. I always use AMA to transcode to Avid files and then edit. But today my client came in with 2 TB of media and wanted to get started. I went to transcode first clip and it was over an hour. So, in my panic I said, "we can use AMA and put roughs together starting right now". To make matters worse her drive is USB so we do not get any smooth video playback, even at lowest timeline res. These are 11 sequences or profiles of people so mostly just interview. My question is, now what? Once I have the sequences cut together, we want to start to finesse the cuts, add some broll graphics etc. I really need to get smooth playback or best, get these sequences transcoded to Avid media. How do I do this given my sequences are just AMA off the USB drive?

Thanks for any help and I should have paid attention in class.

I'm not sure what I really mean by "reasonable," let's say not the $1000 that some of these CD libraries cost!

Re: [Avid-L2] bin won't open

 

Thinking along the same lines, you might try opening the sequence from your bin with the EDL Manager.  If that works, then it should be possible to send that EDL back to a new bin in MC and hopefully relink it somehow to your media. 

Cheers,

yup any non-windows compliant character could kill a bin, even on a Mac. This is a weird suggestion. See if the bin opens and find the seq in Film Scribe, (it may not be installed on your Avid) as most people don't know how useful it is for parsing lists and metadata. If you can open it, then there may be some hope.
