    XF305 and C300 MAC AMA Plugins NOT working

    Hi all,

    Having major troubles across multiple machines trying to bring in via AMA XF305/C300 footage.  I am trying this across multiple machine all running Mavericks 10.9.4.  I have updated all plugins needed.  I have checked the file structure on drive but also having troubles straight from the source card.

    Machine 1 - Dongle version MC 7.0.4 - Mac Pro 16gb ram

    Machine 2 - software version MC 8.0 - New Mac Pro 64gb ram

    Machine 3 - Dongle version MC 7.0.4 - Imac  16gb ram

    I have changed the user settings.  Used multiple way of connecting media to the computer.  Restarted after try. I have changed projects and where the media files are bring saved.

    The strange thing is that it worked just over a week ago on another project...never had any troubles.  But now doesnt work on any of our machines.  

    Does anyone have any ideas what is happening?? I can't work it out.

    Thanks in advance.

    I upgraded 3-4 weeks ago.

    The media works in Canon Utility, there is nothing worng with the file structure or from the source card.

    I can get AMA to work with Sony Xdcam and F5 footage.

    In the tools menu open the console and then try an AMA link. See aht that reports. Are you digging deep enough in the folder (maverick maybe hiding the deeper folder)

    Hi Pat,

    Going into the folder where I have always linked from.  This is from the source card.

    Console reports

    Link To AMA Volume -> /Volumes/CANON XF/

    MVP Used:[ Plugin Name = MVP_CanonXF64 CANON INC. Version = 2.0 ]

    MSP Used:[ Plugin Name = MSP_MXF Plug-In Avid Technology, Inc. Version = 1.9 ]

     

    opens new bin but without any clips

     

    From drive - Did it first from CONTENTS folder and then from pre made folder above

    Unable to link to any clips at /Volumes/TN Master/HOME VISITIS/HV_018/CONTENTS

     

    Link To AMA Volume -> /Volumes/TN Master/HOME VISITIS/HV_018/

    MVP Used:[ Plugin Name = MVP_CanonXF64 CANON INC. Version = 2.0 ]

    MSP Used:[ Plugin Name = MSP_MXF Plug-In Avid Technology, Inc. Version = 1.9 ]

     


     

    I dont know whats happening but its happening on all machines.

    I was just wondering if there was any update to this as I am having the exact same issue as of late. Last month, I was able to AMA Link to C300 media from the same network location. New media was created today in the same fashion, and now I'm getting the same "Unable to link to any clips..." message.

    Hi,

     

    Yes we are still having the same troubles.  I have tried everything i can think of and yet i still cant get it to work.  I'm now moving the media to a Mac formatted drive to see if that is the issue, though still very strange that it cant connect via the source card.

    I did have a similar issue before and had to reinstall the software...im trying to avoid this.

    I was able to figure out my problem. When the media was transferred to our server, it was put in a folder named "CAM A." I just remembered that Avid and the word CAM don't go together. I changed CAM to CAMERA, and all is well.
