    I'm dying here!!!!

    I'm on PC, version 8.4.


    I cut a 1/2 hour show a month or so ago and today I need to export it.  When I open it up I see that it is all offline.  I may well have deleted the media myself, that's my bad.  But now I can't get it back online.  I opened a new bin and ama'd all the original clips in there.  Then I highlighted the sequence and clicked Relink and nothing happens.  I get a new sequence called .relinked that's all offline.  I've tried all sorts of settings in the relink window, nothing's worked.


    So I said the h..ll with it, I've got the numbers I'll recut the stupid thing.  So I mark a shot on the sequence and load the clip that I need to replace it.  I can see the source timecode at the top of the sequence window and I can see the clip's timecode in the source window but when I punch in the number that I want the computer just beeps at me.  


    I can enter incremental times and the computer responds...for example I can enter +5 and it will jump ahead five frames but if I try and enter a timecode it just beeps at me.


    It's bad enough that I can't recapture this show but I think it's asking a lot that I have to cue every clip in the show manually as well.  What am I doing wrong?

    Re: I'm dying here!!!!

    I can't give you an answer but I had a similar problem recently when I was using 50i clips in a 50P project.  Using 50i clips in a 50i project worked.  Do your clips not match the project?

    As I said I don't have a solution but can at least say you are probably not going mad.

    Re: I'm dying here!!!!

    As for the AMA not relinking, what options were you using in the Relink dialog?  Was the footage originally cut from AMA-linked material, or did it get transcoded after the fact?

    As for the dinging trying to type in timecodes, try just re-selecting the correct code over the source monitor pulldown.. IE Source > V1 > TC1
