    Avid MC 8.4.3 import nightmares!

    Hi folks

       Trying to cobble together a 50th bday video for a friend and was provided some footage from the 80's/90's. 

    Native format is - Video stream : AVC (NTSC) 29.97

    2 audio streams :AAC / AC-3

    I've tried linking to them (AMA) but my system craps out. Then tried importing them straight but get the following error in console -


    "------ AMA Link To File(s) ------

    The video track contains non-trivial edit list(s).Forcing sample provider mode for video.

    Color transfer characteristics information unavailable

    Color primaries information unavailable

    Forcing sample provider mode for audio track 2.

    [ Plugin Name = QuickTime Plug-In Avid Technology, Inc. Version = ] could not process /Volumes/Chris G /Chris G - old videos - MP4/Chris G-03.mp4

    QuickTime: Failed to open movie file!

    CreateMovie | Failed to create QuickTime Movie.


    I've then tried encoding them in EditReady but am limited to H264 as EditReady will only wrap HD to other HD formats (lame!).

    Any tips on how I should proceed? Start an SD project and work from there?

    p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

    Could you transcode in edit ready not wrap to something avid native like a HD 720 codec?
