    Is there a 2Gb filesize limit on AAF exports?

    I'm certainly hitting one on a 2' piece, that is for consolidated and embedded A&V.  Cant believe this is the case as its short snappy cuts exporting to an NTFS HDD.

    They need it for a fruit editing machine asap too...  Any ideas?

    Cheers

    You could try selecting "Folder" under the media desitinations section of the AAF export settings. Then all the media files will be put individually into a folder rather than creating one giant file with everything.

    good luck,

    Thanks Campbell - that's what I did and it worked fine.  Guess there remains a 2Gb filesize limit (which I thought was an old OMF/FAT hangup).

    Has anyone sucessfully pulled an AAF into FCP?  I think you need to call a Duck to help the Apple or somethingWink and it wont go straight in?

    Cheers

    Yeah, the 2GB limit does apply to AAF. I am not sure if that's a limitation of Avid, or the AAF specification. The folder thing does work though.

    I have actually imported an AAF into FCP using Automatic Duck's Pro Import FCP - including media. It worked surprisingly well, but I didn't have a chance to really test it extensively. I believe it needs to be converted to an FCP-friendly codec to work reliably, but that gets it all in to start with.

    Will require that the Avid Quicktime codecs are installed on the FCP computer.

    Unsuccessfully exported audio only to Soundtrack Pro, it did import the sequence but it could not reconnect to the mediafiles, I didn't mess around with it (I went to ProTools) but I believe that I should have tried to export the mediafiles as pcm or some other format... what's the point of aaf if it is implemented in different and uncompatible ways by different companies and You need Automatic Duck for video and so on is beyond my understanding.

    It's a limitation of AAF. However, Avid decided to allow us (and ProTools users) to break with it in v4, and use the "AAF Edit Protocol" when exporting, allowing much larger files (no definite answer on how big the files can be, but far beyond 2GB).

    When you have a very simple timeline here's a poor man's Automatic Duck Smile  I think I've managed to get some stuff from Avid to FCP using EDL. It was a long time ago but it was something like that...

    Export the EDL of your sequence from your Avid.

    Export QT Refs of your source material.

    Import EDL to FCP.

    Relink the FCP's sequence to QT Refs.

     

    That way the FCP uses Avid mediafiles through QT Refs.
