    Issues exporting MXFOP1A direct out

    To start, my avid is on 2018.9. Since upgrading I've had strange issues with MXFOP1A direct out exports. 

    1) the file size is 2-3 times bigger than previous Avid versions doing MXFOP1a exports.

    2) These MXF exports can not be imported into a bin. When I try, I get this error message:

    "You cannot import this MXF file into a bin. Use appropriate AMA Plug-in to AMA link it or see documentarion for information about transferring media files." 

    Anyone know why this is happening?

    Export Settings:

    MXF OP1a

    1080p/2997

    audio: PCM 48kHz 24 bitdepth Direct Out Mix

    Re: Issues exporting MXFOP1A direct out

    I think this is normal behavior. What version did you upgrade from?

    1. A quick test with MC8.6.5 and 2018.12 gives me a slightly smaller file with the new software. Is it possible your older exports were MXF OP1a XDCam HD? They would be 50Mb and be sized as you describe.

    2. Avid wants you to Link these files. You can then Consolidate / Transcode. Both MC versions acted the same for me.

    I upgraded from 8.9. 

    1) you nailed it, previous exports were MXF Op1a XDCAM HD 50Mb. A 20 minute MXF Op1a XDcam 50Mb used to be around 12GB but is now 22GB using MXF OP1a direct out. The increased size isn't the end of the world but isn't there a way to get the same result in the newer versions of Avid? 

    2) hmm again not the end of the world to AMA then transcode but it's nice just importing and creating a media file.

    It is a great answer but it's a bit cryptic for me, ha. What's he trying to say?

    You will find XDCAM HD 50 in the Avid Media Processor export option.

    wow, I totally overlooked that Avid Media Processor part as being an actual export option. Problem solved! Thanks DonE
