    8.8.1 advising me to uninstall AMA Plug-ins. Am I okay to just trash them?

    Hi again.  Update to 8.8.1 went perfectly, and I like the new interface it came up with on its own—nicer than the one I had.

    I got two Avid Media Composer warning messages, though, and would like to check with someone who knows about this subject before I proceed.

    One message said that "The AMA Plug-ins that provide support for Sony XDCAM, XAVC (etc.) are now being developed by nablet. Please uninstall the Sony AMA Plug-ins, and download/install the nablet AMA plug-ins from avid.com/ama

    The other message said: "The following AMA Plug-ins are not compatible with this editor version: SonyXDCAM_64bit

    Funny thing is, when I search for this plug-in, by name, nothing show up.

    I have found two other Sony Plug-ins (Library/Application Support/Avid/AVX2_Plug-ins/AMA):  MVP_SonyXDCAMEX.avx and SonyXDCAM.avx

    I don't see a way to officially uninstall them, so... should I just trash them?  (intuition tells me that that's what I should do, but I don't want to mess anything up, with a still project underway, for which I'll need to import footage from my Sony PXW-X200).

    If that's what I should do, I'll do it, and then download/install the new (v.4.0.2) XAVC XDCAM AMA Plug-in.

    I don't even use AMA; I always import my footage, but if this is what I should do, I'll do it.

    Thanks for any advice,

    Malcolm

    that's what I did—I trashed the files, and installed the new one.  Only problem I'm having now is that Sony's Content Browser no longer works, but I don't think that has anything to do with Avid.  I'm working on it now.  Regards, Malcolm

    Yes, you're supposed to bring all the old AMA plug-ins to the trash, and then re-start your system.

    New codecs can be found here: http://www.nablet.com/ama-plugins/

     

    Some patience may be required with the Source Browser. Nablet will reply to your emails. I sent them some frame grabs and they helped me figure stuff out.

    ...and delete them when they are in the trash. Then re-start your system.

    I have the same question.  I do not see an uninstaller with the plug-ins and it is not clear from a hard drive search which files need to be removed. Thanks for the tips here. Alice

    Hi Alice,

      HD>Library>Application Support>Avid>AVX2_Plug-ins>AMA, try to move the .avx to other location see if this fix the issue. I'm no Mac guy feel free to correct the path if needed.

     

     

    Thanks,

    RalphC
