    Re: Having problems still. Realized it's a quicktime with avr77 codec

    Randall's answer may help you !

    Try to put your OMF file in a mediafiles folder (on a media drive), delete .pmr and .mdf files, let Avid rebuild the database, (when it launches), go in Media Tool, you should find your footage there, drag the clip to a bin , and.....

    Re: Having problems still. Realized it's a quicktime with avr77 codec

    Just made the test by only copying the ABVB media on an Adrenaline's  media drive (OMFMediafiles folder, deleted .pmr and .mdb files, launched Avid)

    As Randall stated, I only had to search it using media tool, the name of it's original project appears in the project list, select it,  that's all !

    I go on now, trying the QT-OMFconversion sotware. I have anly old generation Macs here in our facilities, hope it will work.

    Re: Having problems still. Realized it's a quicktime with avr77 codec

    Sorry, I'm uncertain as to where I would find and delete the.pmr and .mdf files you mentioned - are you talking about the Avid databases for the media drive ( called msmFMID and msmMMOB in the media drive)? I tried that and added my file to the OMFI MEDIAFILES folder, the adreneline then rebuilt the database upon relaunching but it didn't show up in the media tool. thanks again for all this help.

    Re: Having problems still. Realized it's a quicktime with avr77 codec

    Yes, I am speaking about the database files, (I mention only the extensions ). I fear, I have bad news !

    I made further tests, and in my case the created OMF files converted via QT OMF converter appear in Media tool. However I get an error message and can't open them. I also tried to import the converted files, It works here, but only 1 field âppears, the second field is grey !

    I would add how I made these files

    In fact I have created 2 files as export QT from ABVB system, 1 file with "cross platform" selected and a second one with this feature unselected, both import but in same conditions, only 1 field. That's where I am now !

    Sorry, really sorry, it is something I thought I could figure out "easily"!

    twistlick I am very  disappointed I couldn't find "your" solution.  So  if you have sufficient time, I would suggest you to send me your file and I will convert it for you !
