    How are you getting RGB analogue from Betacam SP?

    The format stores it as Y R-Y B-Y

    Most decks can output it as that.

    You are aware of the impact of losing QT support when you move to Catalina or above?

    The newer Avid versions use UME for export, a different AMA plugin and less import support.

    You may have issues accessing older projects that used the QT AMA plugin.

  • In one open bin have all your Transcoded Avid media clips selected.

    In another bin select the modified master clips and select relink and then the second option link to selected clips in open bins. This forces the relink to the selected clips.

    I’m afraid your out of luck. The Free Avid version has limited export options and none allow transfer to another NLE.

    You can’t even open the bins or project in the paid version of Avid. That said it’s not a good idea to move from Avid to Premiere. If it’s simple just export a guide and re cut in Premiere. It will be quicker.

    Worth noting that projects and bins aren’t interchable between the full Avid version and the free version.

    So you can only continue with whatever version you started with.

    Going from Avid to Resolve is a valid workflow and you can round trip back to Avid afterwards. So if it just grading or trimming that would work.

    Going to Avid isn’t the same as coming from Avid so if you are determined to try that test first but remember you can only send a sequence (as an AAF) so you still need to be in Avid to export. And experience has shown me you will be doing lots and lots of exports to try and get something thst works.

    Premiere doesn’t follow Avids specs for AAFs so you can get many issues. But testing is the only way to be sure. For an easy quick solution I’d find an Avid editor with their own system and just go that route.

    Basically no.

    Avid AVB files are Avid bins. They are files that contain the metadata of the project. Masterclips and sequences.

    They are unique to Avid.

    They aren’t the media.

    It’s not advised to live between NLE systems unless it’s an approved workflow.

    Some people have had some success exporting a sequence as an AAF into Resolve and the from Resolve to Premiere but it only works on simple sequences.

    As we now have linking and the old legacy import its easier to use the term ingest.

    So you can ingest by linking and either edit directly with that linked media or transcode if you want the benefit of Avid managed media and an edit friendly codec.

    If you’ve converted to rec709 then you should need any LUT.

    Possibly full range levels to legal levels I’d think.

    Yes ensure the tracks you want to work with are enabled (and those you don’t want are disabled.

    Mark your sequence In and Out. Drag the clip icon in the top right of the record window to a bin to make a sub sequence. You can then consolidate that sub sequence.

    Avid has readme docs for each version and that tells you what OS versions are supported but I can tell you there is no way MC V6 will run on anything current.

    I think it supported OSX Lion.
