    AMA Workflow with interplay.


    Is it possible to check-in AMA clips into Interplay when the original clips are not stored on AVID NEXIS servers. 

    We have a small broadcast setup where our projects and 90% of our dialy footage is stored on AVID NEXIS servers. Sometimes we need to go into our ISILON storage system to access a large volume of media (2.5pb of storage) which we normally AMA link from.

    Is there a way to check-in the AMA linked footage (from ISILON) to Interplay? When we do this, only the edit suite that checks-in the footage can see it in the interplay preview window. When we drag it from Interplay back into Avid Media Composer the media is offline on every other edit suite.

    When we copy the raw file (from ISILON) onto a NEXIS server then ama link from there into AVID and then check-in, it works and can be viewed by all editors when in Interplay.

    We want to explore an AMA workflow without having to buy extra NEXIS storage

     Kind regards

    Re: AMA Workflow with interplay.

    a while back, avid allowed you to buy third-party storage indexing licensing for interplay media indexer. Not sure if this is still a thing.
