    Mid project, I updated to 2020.4. Before updating, I had linked to and edited .mov’s
    but now after updating to 2020.4, they’re giving me problems. I’ve been trying to export an AAF and was getting an error, so I figured out that the error is because of one section where the .mov’s are. I click on them, go to Source Browser and see in the plugin column “can’t be linked”.

    Do I need to import them and re-edit those .mov’s? Avid technician suggested that files are corrupt but I don’t know how to tell if that’s true.

    Thank you!

    The AMA linking is using a different architecture in 2020.4. You may need to relink manually selecting the new AMA plug-in.

    Yes that’s correct. Link those movs into a new bin using the UME linking.
