    Files to import not being supported.

    I'm starting my first project.  When I try to drag the .wmv file into the clips section I am informed that wmv is not supported for import and then a second message informing me that it is an unknown file.  I thought i read it was supported, so am I just doing it wrong? and if I'm not, then what file types can I import?


    thank you

    Re: Files to import not being supported.



    File-based media such as .mov, mp4, .mts, mxf, .wav, etc. files can be acquired from a third-party device (a camera, reader, or drive), from a CD or DVD, from a folder on your system, or from a virtual volume (a server connected to your system).

    To move the media into your Avid editing system, you have the option to use the linking method which links the file based media directly into a bin through a plug-in, or you can use the import method which imports the media onto your system.

    Linking allows you to quickly link to the files without importing, transcoding, or copying them. Once you link to the files, you can immediately drag them to your Timeline and start editing.

    Importing will actually import the media files to the bin. The linking method is the preferred and the faster method. To import, see Importing Your Media.

    The following Avid-supplied plug-ins are included with the editing application: Avid Generic Plug- in, QuickTime, AVCHD, MXF, and WaveAiff.

    To see which plug-ins are installed on your system and make sure have what you the Info button in the Project Window.
