    I was wondering if there are any Media Composer users out there who are often integrating BWAVs made from Nuendo.
    I can successfully Link to BWAVs made from ProTools without any problem, and have been for quite a while, through various versions of MC.
    I haven’t had to Link to files from Nuendo for some time, but I am now and will be for some time to come, on a new series.
    Check my system details but please be aware that my MC is within an Interplay environment (which colours some issues.)

    Currently, when I Link to a wav from Nuendo, I get this error immediately:

    The file is playable and can be edited into a Sequence, but overtime I check in the file or sequence, the error comes up again.
    My workaround is to simply import the file and use it in the same way.
    I don’t know where the error is – MC, Interplay or Nuendo – and although I can import the files and make them work, I need to send these files to external clients, so I need to know that they will not have the same/similar problems with them, in MC or any other application.

    Thoughts anyone?

    It may be an issue of AMA audio linking and the check in process. Personally I import all audio all the time as I need to 1/4 frame sync which linking/consolidation/transcode does not allow, but that may not be a need in your case.
