    Error: Cannot consolidate master clip with offline media

    Hi Avid Community,

    I am encountering an error that I have never experienced before when transcoding. After linking XD footage from a Sony FS7 I can transcode all but one video file. The footage was shot on two cards and are contained one folder to accomodate the link and any spanned footage. 


    The error I am receiving is:Cannot consolidate master clip with offline media

    This is the troublesome video file with corresponding start / end timecode. 


    The strange thing is that the metadata on the troublesome clip shows a timecode start of 00:45:26:00, but when viewed in the source browser the footage shows OFFLINE until you scrub to 00:54:09:12 (which is indicated by a marker that shows as _ClipTransit-02). At that point the image and the audio begin. There aren't any missing clips that I can tell, it's just that half of the linked clip is blank. 




    I double checked this file in Sony Catalyst Browse, which actually starts teh clip where Media Composer puts the ClipTransit marker at TC 00:54:09:12

    I'm not sure what's going on and if there's a fix, but I would appreciate it if someone could help.




    2x2.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon | 32 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 | ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB | Mac OS X Sierra | Media Composer 8.8.5 [view my complete system specs]

    I just ran into this today transcoding Sony FS7- in my case it turns out to be a clip we don't need so I'm deselecting it and transcoding the other clips in the bin.It is strange though this is the first time it's happened to us. Have you tried running that clip through media encoder as a workaround?
