Video Production and Hardware: June 2010 Archives

In the long awaited release of Media Composer 5.0, you can now link directly to QuickTime files using Avid's AMA feature.

This is great news for users who use a workflow that combines software products from Final Cut Studio.  Avid Media Composer 5.0 also includes support for QuickTime files using the Pro Res Codec.

The process can't be much easier.  Just navigate to the file menu and choose 'Link to AMA volume'.

Wham! by choosing a folder, the native QuickTime clips automatically show up in an Avid Media Composer bin. No transcoding is required!

This process is very similar to the workflow within Final Cut Pro.  The Avid is referencing the files from their original location.  Clips that are referenced directly outside of Avid's MXF folder structure will appear in bright yellow.
