    As you've probably discovered by now, you can't link ArriRAW or Alexa 35 without the Nablet plugin.

    Unfortunately, this isn't a free plugin and costs around $200.

    You can use the trial version indefinitely, but it watermarks your master clips with a Nablet logo top-left.

    If you're going to AAF your edit to (say) Resolve for conforming/grading this won't matter, as long as you can live with the logo whilst editing!

    This is so stupid.. it's just ProRes 444. I have full-frame ProRes MXF from an Alexa Mini that MC lets me link to just fine, yet not plain UHD from an Alexa 35?

    Did Arri sign some sort of exclusive deal with Nablet or something? What a crock. ArriRAW I could see, but it's ProRes.

    Yet another reason MC is failing.

    I guess it can't be exclusive if Davinci Resolve can play Alexa 35 (and all ArriRAW files that I've tried)

    I've been able to link to Alexa 35 ProRes MXF files in Avid without the Nablet plugin using the source browser and instead of 'Autodetect' manually switching to the 'UME Link' setting. See screengrab.

    Auto detect should have selected UME automatically.

    Would you be able to email a test clip? If I can repro this, it can be logged as a bug
