    Avid Nexis Pro not Indexing Media

    SO I just set up and an AVID NEXI PRO 40tb on two macs and for some reasoning its not looking for new media if I dop a folder in the MXF folder.

     

    So I did create a title in avid and set AVID to make the MXF files and it created in a folder under Avid MediaFiles/MXF/"computer name" and when I drop mxf files into that folder it will recongize and update it. But lets say I drag a folder labeled "1" or "101" with mxf files it won't search of those like it would on just a normal external hard drive.

     

    Do I have something not selected? Is there something I need to set up with the work space? 

     

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Indexing of media is not done by the server (unless you are using Interplay / MediaCentral). It is always done by the editing computer that "owns" that folder. Thus, Machine A will always index MXF folders named "Machine A.x" where x is a number.

    So rename your "1" or "101" folder by prefacing it with a machine name (i.e. Machine A.101).

    If you import media using Machine B, it should create a folder.

    Did you save the bin and close then re-opened it in the other system?

    Can you take a screenshot of your media folder structure?

    So it creates the folder but Machina A does not update or recongize Machine B folder, I try to drag Machine B's database file into an Avid project and it won't load on Machine A
