    Transferring Files and AAF from one Avid to Another

    Hi everyone, this is my first post and first time on this forums.

    I have been using AVID at my school last year and am now wanting to continue using AVID at home. My memory is quite rusty as I havent touched AVID in around 2 months. I recently downloaded a trial version of Media Composer in order to finish a short film I was working on.

    I grabbed all the raw footage and the Avid Media Files (mxf) and an avb. file (I was quite certain it was an AAF or I grabbed an AAF but I cant seem to locate it, is this an issue)?

    I haven't done this before so excuse my ignorance, but I was wondering how I would go about setting this up and importing it properly?


    Please help

    Thank you for your time!

    An .avb file is an Avid bin.  It should have the the name of the bin before the .avb.  So you can put that .avb file into the current Avid project you are working with and it will then be openable.

    But that is s NOT an AAF file.  Such a file will have a .aaf extension.

    And the .avb bin you have may not be what you want.
