    Link to media - folder with MXF files

    I can't get to link to a folder with MXF files in it, from a canon c300 camera. I've tried to rename the folder etc. download the few AMA plug-ins.

     

    If I go into the folder, select the MXF fil and choose MSP_MXF plug-in it works.

     

    I'm using MC 8.4 and getting error:

     

    Unable to link to any clips at /Users/Phill/Desktop/tttttt

     

    Am I doing something wrong or?

    Re: Link to media - folder with MXF files

    Did you install the Canon XF AMA plugin? (NOT the MXF plugin - you do not need this).

    If so - do you have just the MXF folder?  Or is the full CONTENTS folder inside the "ttttttt" folder?

    You need the full CONTENTS folder in order for it to work properly.  Link to one level above it, which is the "ttttttt" folder.

    What's the format of the media - I think there are issues with 24.000fps CanonXF media, so I wonder if that's a factor.

    C300? Or C300 Mark II?  And yes, the full card structure needs to be intact...

    "Content" is not correct - it must be "CONTENTS" - someone may have renamed the folder.

    Answer the other questions, please - did you install the Canon XF plugin?

    Is this 24.000fps media?

    Yes I installed the XF plugin-in.

     

    25 fps media.

    Re: Link to media - folder with MXF files

    And just to be really clear - please confirm the following:

    The folder structure should be exactly this:

    /Users/Phill/Desktop/tttttt/CONTENTS/Clips001/AA0491

    Again - it must be "CONTENTS" - not "Content" as you said earlier.

    Also - when you link - are you linking to the "tttttt" folder?  That's what you should link to.  Do not link to the CONTENTS folder or anything else.

    Re: Link to media - folder with MXF files

    Very welcome - as a general rule, that's how to properly link to ALL camera formats.  Think of it this way - if the media's still on the card, you link to the root of the card.  In other words, one level above the topmost folder.

    So, when you copy the entire card to a folder, that folder is the same thing as the root of the card.

    Also as a general rule, for everyone and for all formats, don't change anything at all that was made by the camera - not folder names, nothing.  The organizing should be done through the folders that the user creates.  On XDCam, keep the BPAV folder.  On AVCHD, keep the PRIVATE folder.  On CanonXF and P2, keep the CONTENTS folder.  It's consistent, easy to remember, and least prone to media issues.
