    Footage linking only

    Hi there,

    Maybe a noob question but I haven't come acorss this problem before please help.

    I have some raw Arri Pro Res 4444XQ.MXF 24FPS footage at 4480 x 3096

    I am trying to get into to Avid without it being a link.


    My Project is-

    24FPS 1080p/24 CS- YCbCr 709


    I have transcoded it in Resolve going for MXP- OP atom DNxHD 36 8 bit 1920 x 1080.


    I then create a new folder in the AVID media files folder (in this case "300") and the footage appears but it comes as linked which seems strange?


    What have a done wrong here? Thanks for any help you can give me,

    Kind Regards,




    Mac Catalina 10.15.7 Avid MC 2020.6

    How are you getting the clips into Avid?

    I think you should delete the linked clips you currently have, hide the Arri originals away somewhere, and then open '300' folder (it's in 'MXF' isn't it....) and drag the .mdb file into a bin in your project. If Avid's seeing them as valid OP-ATOM MXFs that should give you regular Master Clips.
