    Files in my sequence are offline, I’ve tried re-linking but no dice, Avid tells me that no clips were re-linked, whats the next step to try and get them online?

    Did you import media (link to) and transcode to Avid media? If so, you should have an Avid MediaFiles folder at the root of one of your hard drives. If that’s they case, no relinking is normally requires. Media just shows up.

    If you did not do this originally, how did you initially import the media?

    I’m Avid terms import is to create Avid media and related master clips at that moment of import. This creates Avid media files that shouldn’t become unlinked.
    AMA linking and transcoding also produces Avid Media files that should become unlinked.
    However working with AMA linked media directly is more likely to become unlinked.
    To resolve that just re AMA link those source into a new bin. Your original clips and time line should come back on line.
