Re: [Avid-L2] Preventing former AMA files from relinking back to AMA sources?

 

When you say it finally stuck I think what you might have seen is something I run into all the time when I open previous versions of sequences.  This is not ama specific but I will consolidate all the uprezzed clips from the AE to a common volume and everything is online with just the volume mounted.  Then I open an older version of the sequence and a bunch of clips go offline thinking they are still linked to the original volumes I've consolidated from.  A relink back to the dedicated volume usually brings things back online but sometimes I have to open the bin containing the source clips and relink them back to the dedicated volume.  Perhaps this kind of thing is what was unsticking some of your clips and later you stopped opening bins with earlier versions of the sequence.  Just a possibility as I see this happen all the time.

Honestly, I have never seen this problem before. 

I have. It was incredibly un-nerving since MC was relinking back to lower res versions each time I opened the project or anytime I ran the Relink function anything. The low res media was Avid transcoded media and the hi-res media was AMA linked.

I had to delete all low-res media used in the project. This did not stop the relinking. It merely ensured that I would see the bad clip so I could fix it.

After constant relinking, MC slowly got the hint and eventually stopped relinking to the old files, but it took a long time and I relinked some files a dozen times before it "stuck."

Re: [Avid-L2] Is Editing Killing Us?

 

Here in Bangkok my solution has been to start at 10am and work later to avoid traffic. Makes a HUGE difference to my day.

[Avid-L2] A vid license Software needs Admin priviledge?

 


Got a friend saying unless they are logged in as admin priveledge user Avid won't launch. Mac OS 10.8 no dongle software license. Can't remember if there are any known issues with new avid licensing app and the need to be an administrator. I remember some ama plug ins needed to be launched in admin and then they worked for non admin. So is the a gotcha for non admin users and the new software license app?

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Avid - Baselight

 

 

A couple more workflow advantages I can think of are any shots you need to add or replace after the color pass can be fixed by copying the Baselight plugin not those shots. 


Also, for remote workflows (Colorist somewhere else) you just get an AAF without media that can be emailed to you. Now you have all the color corrections in your timeline.

[Avid-L2] Re: Avid - Baselight

 

Hi Nige


I haven't used the roundtripping / importing from the big Baselight, but Baselight is a great colour plug-in for Avid. I've used it in v. tight turnaround situations and it's miles ahead of the Symphony corrector. The tracker is very cool.

You can jump from shot to shot with F5/F6 pretty quickly. 

It does fall down on grade comparison, unfortunately, but they are aware of that. I haven't used it for a few months so they might well have moved forward on that too. They certainly fixed a couple of bugs I found very quickly.

It's better than round-tripping to Resolve for me as you can still make editorial tweaks and also use other plug-ins in the timeline.

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Avid - Baselight

 

Well, with Baselight you can have it put the corrections from the big Baselight into your timeline with the Baselight plugin. Then you can refine/tweak color while inside MC instead of having to go back to the big Baselight. This also means you don't have to render out of the big Baselight as you will do the render in your MC when you are finalized.


Other than that, Mike is dead on..

I agree 100 percent with Agustin. Symphony for speed, others for better toolset. The Baselight plugin gives you that toolset, but you are exiting Avid and going into their interface. Sort of like Avid FX (Boris RED). This means it's not easy to compare to surrounding shots, etc.

Re: [Avid-L2] FCPX project to Avid

 

An alternate path is to export an FCPXML from FCP X for the sequence. Convert that to FCP 7's XML format using Xto7. Open that in FCP 7 and export via Automatic Duck. It's a bit convoluted and I think Resolve would be the better approach. But it's another method.


Note that any of these solutions will only convert the edited sequence and not the entire job. Remember that FCP X calls sequences "projects" and what Avid editors call projects are "Libraries" in FCP X.

You can get a sequence into Avid using Resolve as an intermediary.  Resolve can import using FCPX XML and export an AAf for Avid.  A full project, no.  FCPX does not even use bins.  It organizes (quite well, actually) using metadata tags.


BTW, in FCPX a sequence is called a project.  Not sure if that was meant.
