    Can't consolidate sequence due to missing mxf file

    Hi, the sequence I wanna consolidate plays fine, no offline clips in it. After a few minutes into consolidating a message tells me that a mxf file can't be found. Any ideas how I can cope with that? Is there a possible workaround? I already tried to relink but no success. 

    Thanks for help in advance!!!

    Hi Greg,

    The first thing I'd try is deleting the media database files.

    Re: Can't consolidate sequence due to missing mxf file

    If rebuilding the media database files doesn't help, you'll really need to try and identify the problem clip/file.

    One thing that's worked for me in the past is to do a video mixdown of the whole sequence. What should happen is that the mixdown will stop with an error when the problem clip is reached, but the error message should give you the option of saving the mixdown up to the error.

    Once you have this saved, you should be able to see where the mixdown errored-out and remove/replace the offending clip.

    Re: Can't consolidate sequence due to missing mxf file

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    I did rebuild the media database already but I missed some mediafiles that accidentally landed on another harddrive.

    After rebuilding those the cosolidating process went fine.

    Best and stay healthy,

    Greg
