    I AMA'd the MOV clips into Avid so I could change the colour space settings in the bin but have not tried. Avid MXF files never AMA link, but I have put them in media folders before with no problems. Sometimes they do what they are doing now and its all down to permission. I could sort it out in 5 minutes if I had 5 minutes spare today, but I haven't.

    Automatic duck got bought by Adobe and so I am not sure you can get it anymore. It because the "pro import" in After Effects. It was great for doing AAFs between programs.

    However, all Advision really needs is a way to reliably make something from EDIUS which then goes into Avid with the minimum amount of fuss. If you wanted to do all your grading a in 10 bit project then the best thing would be to edit in a 10 bit project, export an HQX file and then load that into an 8 bit project for export. Then at least all the grading is done in the best quality and it is just converted once.

      You can do some jiggery pockery with source settings once it is AMA'd, but with AMA you do not set anything on import. If you try and import an MXF clips in DNxHD format Avid won't accept it. I ama'd the Quicktime files and they worked so I left it at that.

      My only problem was getting in the MXF file which I should have been able to just drop into the media folder and Avid would take it but it did not. I have had this before with Avid and can sort it out but I haven't given that we have working solution.

        David. This is what I was referring to earlier. You can't do a straight import or drop it in the MXF folder. You would have to get an associated Avid database file, which will happen with the GV recommended workflow, then you can do internal Avid media movements from project to project. Although the Edius MXF file is fully compliant, you still can't do the same with Avid MXF media from one Avid to another, without the database file. This is what happens on a few different versions of Avid, maybe the new one will see the files as an Avid asset.
