    Cannot Transcode or Import H264 .movs - multiple errors

    Hi, 

    I recently updated to Avid MC 7 after I had my logic board replaced in my macbook.  I am running osx 10.7.5 which is supported.  I installed MC 7.0.4.1 and have not been able to use it. 

    I am shooting with Canon 5d and have h264 .movs.  I can view them with AMA just fine, but I am having a lot of trouble trying to bring them in.  When I transcode, the first clip typicall works and then all the other fail afterwards.  They say WRONG FORMAT on the viewer and I can hear the audio from the clip. 

    I have been getting a variety of errors and crashing the program.  

    One error  is  NEMFileWriter has detected upstream pipe stall

    I've tried unistalling and re-intalling a view times and deleted Perian from the system.  

    Any ideas?  MC7 is compleletly useless to me like this.

    Confirm that you have the proper AMA plugins and try setting the clip options manually in case auto-detect is getting confused.

    Must think of something clever to go here...

    I still get errors when I manually select the clip options.  I have tried downloading the AMA plugins for .mov, but everywhere on the site says the .mov plugin comes with the software and I can't find anywhere to download it outside of the program.

    I don't understand why the first clip will transcode fine and then I no more clips will work.  If I try to batch or even if I do it one clip at a time.

    I'm also getting this error - Exception: AMAProducerTask::Exedute: AMA Plug-In Unable to Provide Sample.

    As a workaround you folks may want to transcode in Resolve to DNXHD145 or whatever, aaf that to Avid,  and then relink (although the quality difference is likely negligible) in Resolve to the originals depending on your deliverabiles,etc.

    I'm no ones employee but I think a lot these problems would go away if folks would start in Resolve.  Don't forget the checkmark for create Reel names.  Search the net and you will find different ideas on the Reel names/Tape names issue so test your workflow.

    Good Luck,
