    Relinking offline media that was created from transcoded footage and sound

    I have recently moved from uni while still wroking on a project so i moved the project to my laptop. I can open it fine but some of the media is being recognised from my D drive, which is where my media is, but some is being recognised from my F drive which i dont know what that is. I have tried creating a new bin and linked the media again. I then put a copy of the sequence in that folder and tried to relink but it only recognised the media that was previously showing from the D drive. Another thing i noticed is that the media that didnt relink has a real time "S" effect on it which i didnt put on there. Also the sound and the video that did get relinked is not linked together, they are now seperate files. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on? Thank you

    I can' t understand- do you have OFFLINE clips or not? And if you want to relink clips on other machine they must have timecode and tape name

    The clips with the f drive location are I presume showing offline.

    This is because thats where they were but MC can't see them now (because that drive doesn't exits)

    Were these AMA linked clips or Transcoded ore imported media?

    under column headings make sure source path and source file are enabled so you can see more info about the source file.

    Avid stores imported or transcoded media as seperate audio and video file and they live in the Avid MediaFiles/MXF/ numbered folder

    AMA linked files are accessed from whatever location you linked them from.

    Yes they are showing offline. These clips were AMA linked clips which I then transcoded within avid to alower quality so it would be easier to work with. Now I would like to relink them to the original media with the same name and with the same source path as before except now its on my computer instead of my uni computer. In my project, some file paths are to the correct place in the D drive and some are to the F drive. Those files wont relink.

    Re: Relinking offline media that was created from transcoded footage and sound

    In most cases there is no way to relink trancoded clips to the original media. If you want increase the quality of these trancoded clips - just trancode original media to more qualitative format and then relink to this clips. If you want just relink clips from F drive on other machine - you need to copy files from F:/Avid MediaFiles/MXF/1 to laptop to the same folder, but on disk D

    Re: Relinking offline media that was created from transcoded footage and sound

    I have done it before where you trick avid into relinking the high quality media by moving the it and then replacing it with the hign quality media and telling avid to relink that as it has the same name. But thats not the issue as thats also what i have done fot the media in my project that states the source path is to my D drive, however i cannot do the same with the media which says its source path is to the F drive. Whats strange to me is that some media is going to thw D drive and some to the F drive, and it seems quite random. Any reason why it has been split like this? Can I somehow change the source path to the D drive instead? The folder structure is the same; only difference is the drive.

    Did you copy files from disk F to laptop?

    Re: Relinking offline media that was created from transcoded footage and sound

    I have only used on hard drive for this project which is a G drive. I have looked it up and apparantly the F drive is a back up partition but i dont see why the source path would originate from there.

    It doesn't matter. You need to relink all clips from project on laptop - just copy ALL media to it

    Where do you mean to copy it? Right now all my media is organised on the D drive

    The source path shows the current location of files that are online to media composer but for offline media it shows the previous path to the file.

    Its likely on you previous system media was on an F drive but on your PC that F drive is actually a different drive.

     

    Ultimatley either those missing files are on your external drive but not yet AMA linked in MC so hidden from it. (so try searching for one sample missing file on your external drive. 

    Or those files never made it to the external drive and still lurk somewhere else. A uni computer or a USB drive you used once or someboduelses drive.
