    Omfi media files won’t relink no matter what

    Hi guys , I have a problem with certain omfi media files.

    im working on avid 2018.10 on a MacBook Pro 2018. When my editor gives me the new omfi he imported I can relink them no matter waht I do. The only way is to do a batch import of the files. This happens since I updated to the version 10 of avid.

    any advice?

    thabks a lot.

    Did Media Composer scan the OMFI-folder and actually notice the new OMFI-files? Did it rebuild the databases?

    Absolutely yes. I also tried to drag and drop the database in a new bin. I can see the clips but they are offline.

    Are they actually labeled "offline" or are they just not playing back? Could it be the "Convert Sample Rates When Playing" setting?

    when I put them in my sequence they are red, so offline. I tried to change the "convert sample rates when playing" but nothing actually happens. I'm pretty desperate at this point.

    Hi Marianna, thanks for your reply,

    I will send an email to support. I am thinking it could be a bug of my current version. I tried everything.

    I noticed that this did not happen one time before the update to 2018.10.

    Hi all,

    I have seen your post, here we meet the same problem.

    Did you have an answer from the support ? 

    Many of our systems are 2018.11 on Mac OSX.13.6 

    Please tell us !Confused

    Re: Omfi media files won’t relink no matter what

    @DumDumFilms:

    Try this:

    1. Quit Media Composer.

    2. Create a folder in your media drive named exactly this: OMFI MediaFiles.

    3. Drag-and-drop the OMF's in this folder.

    4. Relaunch Media Composer. MC will index this folder.

    If you have bins with clips linked to the OMF's, they should now appear.

    Make sense?
