    Importing AAF from Avid

    MAAD Level 1

      Hi,

      I'm having trouble importing an AAF project from Avid. Im AE 6 I choose Pro Import After Effects (see screen shots  below for import settings)

      and after about 2h of importing I received the following messages.

      After clicking ok several times I get this screen, but as you can see, the composition window is just blank.

      I'm using After effects 6 on OS Mavericks.

       

      Are the AAF file I'm importing corrupt or have I missed something in the import dialouge?

       

      Thanks

      /Martin

          You have to be much more specific. You have not told us anything about how the project looks in Avid, what footage types it uses etc.. Judging from the file names in your screenshot you use unconverted AMA sources which don't exactly create Avid media files, so there may be nothing to connect to and your files appear offline. That and of course a gigazillion otehr things I can think of like multiple audio tracks, complicated nested edits, effects being applied that can't be translated and so on.
