    Cannot consolidate master clips



    I have a very strange error that appeared after installing MC 2018.12.2.


    The error is that you can not transcode video clips that have been AMA linked on a different computer than the one where you want to transcode. On the other PC, this error is shown as on bottom.


    Interestingly, the case concerns only clips, which in our case come from cameras like GoPro or DJI OSMO.

    All clips that come from Sony PMW-300 cameras and are recorded as XDCAM 422 50Mb do not show the problem described above.



    - The duration of the clip is double on clips linked with GoPro and DJI OSMO

    - When an error occurs, it is NOT POSSIBLE to transcode on the first PC (AMA Linked on the one where the clips have been), AMA LINK needs to be re-enabled

    - When I want to view the clip on the second PC, which is there, the MEDIA OFFLINE in the PRV window has an image but no sound



    - clips from the card are copied to the network share

    - network share is visible on PC through Symbolic Links (aka Symlinks)

    - after copying the clips are AMA Link in Composer

    - clips are described and sorted

    - Then on the second PC the same project and the same bins are opened (BINs are previously closed on the first PC) and

    - the transcoded option of selected clips, which are AMA Linked on the Avid ISIS 5500 workspace, is run

    and then an error occurs.



    1. Both PCs are HP Z440 Win 7, Intel (R) Processor Xeon (R) CPU E5-1660 v3, 32 GB RAM, NVIDIA Quadro K2200

    2. Both PCs are Media Composer 2018.12.2

    3. Avid ISIS 5500 Workspace

    4. Network - Intel (R) PRO / 1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter

    5. The format of the project is HD 1080i50

    6. The codec of the project is XDCAM 422 OPAtom

    7. Source codec AVC Long-GOP High (HD1080p)

    8. Automated AMA Plugin - Avid Generic


    Information from the console:

    * Can not consolidate master clip with offline media.

    I am asking for help, because in previous versions of Media Composer, for example 2018.11, this problem did not occur.
