    Avid Linking to Op-Atom Issue

    Hello,

    This was in 2018.13 but I have seen it in multiple versions.  When I mistakenly link to op-atom media all the clips display the link symbol but the media remains offline.

    If I delete these links and drop the Op atom mxf files into the correct Avid MediaFiles folder structure to scan they do scan and databases are built but the clips still display the link symbols and the media still appears offline (even after brining in the new .mdb file into the avid)

     

    I thought deleting the AMA management folder "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Avid Media Composer\AMA Management" would delete all history of AMA linked media but this does not.  The clips continue to have the linked symbol and are offline even when new databases are built. The only workaround I have found is to take the media to a different computer and for that to build new databases.  Is there something that can be deleted to make the computer forget about linking to this media?  Thank you for any advice. Rory

    When you start Media Composer it will scan all Avid MediaFiles directories. This includes any numbered directories in Avid Mediafiles. Create a new directory called Avid MediaFiles->MXF->2. Drop your files into that directory. When scanned, MC will create a new database in that directory. See if that fixes the issue.

    Re: Avid Linking to Op-Atom Issue

    For some reason Avid has stopped emailing me when people reply to my posts.  Sorry for that, I did not try renaming the folder to 2 but I did delete the database and have avid build new ones in the 1 folder which did not help. 

    I will try you solution next time.  Thank you for your reply.
