    If you have a lot and it's a large project, use AMA to first check the material, and do any selecting that you want.  Then transcode to an Avid-friendly codec like DNxHD.  The transcode process is usually faster than a direct import.

    AMA is fine for small projects, but it can slow you down considerably on large ones.
