    how do I import Spanned P2 clips (migrating from FCP)

    Last night while I was double checking source footage I was transcoding to DnXHD I noticed that there were 5 separate clips that are offline in both the AMA linked footage and the transcoded footage. After doing some investigating, I discovered that these 5 clips were spanned over two different P2 cards.

    How do I AMA link footage that has been spanned over two P2 cards? 
    All of my source footage is on an external LaCie RAID drive. While on assignment I had to drag and drop the P2 content from each card into separate folders on an external drive, but now when I AMA link so that I can transcode for an offline I can't access these few (but key) shots.
    I am migrating to Avid from Final Cut Pro and know that this is a pretty simple process in FCP. Is there a simple workflow for this without having to do a workaround through 3rd party software? Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Copy the entire content of both drives in to their own respective folders to a local drive. AMA link to these folders.

    Be sure to leave the folder structure intact, or it will be impossible to import these files!
