    Avid MC won't AMA import

    On MC 8.9.3

    NOT running High Sierra - we are on 10.12.6 Using external USB 3.0 drives (like we always have). But lately the MC sees the folder set from our Sony PMW-F5 but refuses to do an AMA import. Click..nothing. Click, click, click…nothing. Noticed permissions were wrong. Changed them so “everyone” was included and applied to all subfolders. Restart MC…still nothing. Click..nothing. Click, click, click…nothing. Only two options work. 1) drive down into the folder and select only the MXF files to AMA import (never had to do this before) And even then the MC lists an error where it says it must insist on transcoding right away (goodbye background transcode convenience)  2) copy media onto my internal drives and then import (not fast or practical). Thoughts?

    Found a clunky workaround.

    I search for all the MXF files via the finder for those folders, then option drag them into a folder. 

     

    Still...AMA import SHOULD work, no?

    hello?

     

    Huh?

    Hey, Fish, this works on my system (I select the Private folder in the Source Browser selection window (right window)).

     

    Are you sure you've got the right sony AMA plugins installed?
