    Sample Project Offline

    After installing MC, I tried to active the Sample Project. I was able to load it but, when scrolling the timeline, I get the "OFFLINE" message in the monitor window. What am I doing wrong?

    I searched the data base and found no answers. I also tried to to relink the files to no avail.

    Thanks fo your help.

    Have you put the media for the Sample Project in the right place?  

    Avid media must always reside in either a folder named OMFI MediaFiles (if you're using OMF media type) or it must be in Avid MediaFiles\MXF\1 (if you're using MXF media type)

    The OMFI and Avid MediaFiles folders must live at the root level of the hard drive where you've stored them.  They can not be in any subfolders.  

    There are some other basic things you should know regarding Avid media files etc, but I don't want to overwhelm you right now.

    It's been a while since I've looked at the sample project, but shouldn't it have come with some instructions on where to put what etc?

    Make sure you read the install instructions for the sample project carefully. You probably need to change the file folder permissions on your system for MC to see the project. It installs in its own folder on your system drive and you have no control over that. Once you set the file permissions and restart MC you should be good to go.

    Re: Sample Project Offline

    Thanks for the replies. I had already done as you two have instructed before appealing to the forum.

    I will go back over the process. Perhaps I missed something.
