    Consolidate/Transcode Part of a Clip

    I have AMA linked an extremely long clip and only need a small portion of it.   I made a subclip of the section I wanted and then consolidated the subclip to my media drives.   But when I unplugged the camera card with the original AMA clip, the consolidated subclip went offline. 

    How can create & save just a portion of a clip and then get rid of the original?

    Re: Consolidate/Transcode Part of a Clip

    That's strange, you should just be able to sub clip or mark an in and out of a AMA Avid Linekd to Original Media. Then transcode, should do what you want. As it'll be Avid managed Media after being transcoded into that format. You can safetly eject the camera card, then the media as it's now in Avid's format will be linked to the section that you transcoded.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks,

    Right, but Terry consolidated:

    As Leo says, try transcoding the subclip rather than consolidating.

    I don't know why consolidating didn't work.   But I will try transcoding next.   Thanks.
