    AMA with Canon 5d mkiv footage?

    I'm using 2018.3.0, should I be able to AMA link this footage or do I need to transcode?

    I'm getting the message "can't be linked" in the Source Browser window.

    Clips are good; they play fine in QT and import into Premiere Pro.

    I have the CanonRaw and CanonXF plugins installed.

    Re: AMA with Canon 5d mkiv footage?

    Yes they should link, I’m on the same MC version and I notice the same behaviour “can't be linked “ however I just control click (Mac OS) on the “ can’t be linked and from the contextual menu choose link with QuickTime. They link fine. Multiples can be selected and “linked with-“ in one click.

    you may still need to trancode though as MC needs a lot of cpu to edit with mp4 natively.

    Perfect, thank you!

     

    EDIT: Actually that doesn't work for me.  When I sleect 'QuickTime' it retries but returns to "can't be linked.."

    I'm on Sierra and not High Sierra...I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

    Re: AMA with Canon 5d mkiv footage?

    Are the canon 5d files h264 with a .mov extension?

    i don’t know if Sierra or high Sierra would make a difference, certainly I worked on canon5d footage when I was on Sierra and they linked.

    have you tried the opt drag link process? (Have both an avid bin and a finder window open, click and hold, on a .mov file in the finder then hold down the opt key and drag to an avid bin)

    If you want to share a small file I could try my link process here. - M

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes, they are h264 with .mov.  I tried the opt drag and nothing happens.

    I've uploaded one of the files and I'll send you the link.

    I see what it is now.  They guy who put the media on the drive put a "/" in some of the directory names.

    AMA doesn't like that.
