    Symlinks and Media Tool

    Hello,

    I'm trying to create symlinks in the Avid MediaFiles/MXF/1 folder on my system that point to dailies media delivered in a bunch of subfolders.

    If I put symlinks in that directory, the Media tool will not recognize them.

    If I  move an original MXF file into the directory, Media Tool will see the file as expected.

    If I import that file into a bin or timeline, then move the MXF file back to the subfolder directory, and put a symlink in the Avid Mediafiles directory, the clip still plays back normally, and the "reveal file" functions takes me to the file in the subfolder directory.

     

    This leads me to believe that Avid will follow symlinks, but Media Tool will not scan them and add them to the database.

     

    Anyone else have experience with this?

     

    Thanks,

    DS
