  • Re: Relink vs Reimport?

    Hi Tomas, Thanks for that previous post. It seems like those methods require me to already have a sequence of clips. Is there a way I can just transcode the ama clips without putting them all in a sequence, then edit the dnxhd 36 clips, and then relink that sequence to the ama media for final export? Also, will any color correction I apply to the dnx

  • Re: Relink vs Reimport?

    Hi, Thanks for your response. I'm trying to figure out the best workflow for shooting prores material, converting to dnx 36 for the edit, then moving back to the original prores media for exporting for the web. I recently found this workflow tutorial: https://vimeo.com/42262022 It's about using DSLR media, but I guess it could apply to prores

  • Relink vs Reimport?

    This must be a dumb question because I couldn't find any other threads about this. But here goes: So I've read almost 500 pages of the MC7 editing manual and I don't understand what the difference between reimporiting files and relinking files is. The manual (on page 318): "If you are working with master clips or sequences that contain

  • Apply AvidFX filter to a title

    I want to apply a "blending" or "transfer" mode to a title that will be above a video clip. I understand there are no blend modes in MC, however I read that the AvidFX filter has a provision for blending modes. I tried to drag and drop the AvidFX filter to a title but it didn't work. I tried Option-dragging and that did work

  • Re: Export color shift

    Hi Job, Thanks for your help. I have a few questions... 1) I imported as AMA then transcoded to DNXHD 36. Would this affect the way Avid handles color information? 2) What exactly do you mean by " the footage in the source/record monitor is not corrected" 3) When I tried exporting the video again, this time with "709" checked in

  • Export color shift

    Hi. Here is a link to a screenshot of my computer: http://postimg.org/image/mj0316fkz/ Why is the exported video (left) so different than my record monitor in terms of color, contrast, saturation, etc...??? What should I do to export properly? The export was a Quicktime. Why is it so over-saturated and contrasty? Thanks for any assistance!

  • Enable/Disable Effect

    Hi, I'm new to MC. (just installed MC7) I am struggling with effects. I can't figure out how to temporarily disable an effect so I can review before/after. In FCP or Adobe, they provided you with a very handy "eyeball" button which simply turned any effect "ON" or "OFF". I also can't figure out how to remove

  • Re: MC 7 Prores / quicktime workflow

    Thanks Job, This really helped clear things up! Will there be any noticable difference in performance if do the AMA link to Prores > Consolidate option? (vs. transcoding prores > dnxhd) Also, will this AMA/Consollidate option actually make a duplicate copy of the media in the Avid Mediafiles folder, thereby taking up double the disk space? (I

  • MC 7 Prores / quicktime workflow

    I just switched to MC 7 coming over from Premiere Pro. I will be shooting Prores files with the Blackmagic Pocket camera and h.264s with a Canon DSLR camera. From watching a Creative Cow MC tutorial I gathered that..... A) there are two ways of importing: traditional and "AMA" linking B) traditional means that you make a DNX (transcoded) version
