Join Steve Holyhead for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing an offline to online workflow (with AMA and batch importing), part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Avid Media Composer 5.5.
Taking what we've learned about AMA linking, importing, and media management to…a new level, we're going to simulate offline-to-online workflows for both some…AMA-linked media and for some imported media.…If you've worked in the Media Manager inside FCP, then what I'm about the cover…should be fairly familiar.…Offline-to-online workflows can be desirable for many different reasons.…One reason may be that you just don't have enough storage space or the…system bandwidth to bring all of your project media online at full…resolution at the same time.…
One way to achieve an offline-to-online workflow with AMA-linked media then is…to first link to it, make any metadata adjustments you wish--such as adding a…disk label and renaming clips--and then transcode the AMA clips to smaller, more…compressed resolutions for offline editing.…In order to simulate an offline-to- online workflow, let's go back to the…04_05 subfolder, and inside the Transcode bin, we have the two clips that we…transcoded earlier.…Let's make selections from these clips as if we were actually editing. There we go!…
