it´s not the first time I run into troubles with Avid´s Link Options (former AMA). It seems impossible to link to my 2K Raw Footage shot on my Sony F5 and edit it. The files are all stored on an external thunderbolt hard drive, with all the original folders. Once the files show up in a “Bin” the viewer says “Media Offline”. I also tried with different 2K sample footage – same problem. I installed ALL the latest Sony Raw Plug In´s into the AMA directory. I further on tried to copy the Raw MXF files into the Avid MediaFiles directory. Here it says “The file may not be a valid/supported MXF File”. I don´t get it since I installed the latest MEDIA COMPOSER 8.6 and ALL the recommended Plug In´s. I desperately need to proceed with my project. Does anyone have the same problems?

Make sure the volume button at the top left is checked to see if that helps (8.6 Source Browser). It is not an obvious button, but worth a try. It should see everyrthing now in that folder structure and only show you the clips to which you can manually select the proper plug-in.
