    How to import/AMA Link c300 footage into Avid 8.2.2?

    I am a recent convert over from FCP7 and I now am learning to use Avid MC 8.2.2

    I have some c300 footage here so I downloaded all the canon plugins but when I go to get the AMA for canon c300 it says its only for Avid MC5?

    How do I work with, import, AMA Link, c300 footage in Avid 8.2.2?

    I've been looking for tutorials and info here, and all I find is that there is no AMA Link plug in for 8.2.2? 

    Can anyone direct me to a work flow tutorial for importing c300 footage into Avid 8.2.2 ?

    The Canon AMA plugin page is VERY confusing.  Need to read it very closely:

    The first link, the MXF plugin, is NOT what you need.  Disregard it completely.

    Down under that, there are links for XF305, XF300, XF105.  Not the same cameras, but they do use the same plugin.  So, follow one of those links, to Canon's website.  From there, you can navigate to the C300 page if you really want to be sure.

    Hi Sam, 

    Do not worry, C300 and AMA works perfectly in 8.2.2.

    Please read my answer in another thread regarding workflow:

    If you can't fix it with gaffa, you haven't used enough!
