(Avid MC 6.0.1 + PrPro CS 5 / Win7)
Is it possible to relink to Avid's MXF files?
I followed the video2brain tutorial "Premiere for Avid Editors":
1. (in Avid) export Avid sequence an an *.aaf file
2. (in PrPro) import the aaf
3. PrPro creates a new folder with the sequence and the clips in it.
4. (in PrPro) relink clips to Avid's MXF files - and this is not working!
I get the error message "The file has an unsupported compression type."
(the guy in the tutorial claims that this is no problem at all - he just do not have the Avid media files on this machine ...)
So, how do you do it?
here is the roundtripping video tutorial
seems to work only w/ DV media! hahaha...
From a post in this forum:
"Having spent ages trying to move DNxHD files between applications it seems that AAF import only works with DV footage. I think Adobe needs to be a little more honest with their marketing spin, pinging dv files bewteen apps is not how I imagine most editors would use this round-trip process."
If you want to spend about 200 dollars, there is third party MXF importer available.
Works quite well, I've done lots of AVID project onlining with Premiere/AE.
You have to install Avid codec pack too.
