    Bath AMA link footage from C100, C300 etc.



    Im trying to AMA link all the clips that were shot on a Canon camera at once rather than going into each folder and AMA linking each clip individually. 

    I've had a look around a few forums at how to do this but still had no joy in succeeding in doint it. 


    I've made sure I have the correct AMA plugin (i think) I'm also using AMC 7


    Ideally I'd like a workflow but any help would be appreciated!

    What exact format(s) are you recording in?  I think the C100 does AVCHD, while the C300 does Canon XF, but I'm not sure.  There may be different workflows involved.

    For Canon XF - make sure you have the CANON XF plugin installed (NOT the "MXF" plugin - that's not needed).  For AVCHD, the plugin is installed automatically with MC.

    In any case, make sure the ENTIRE structure of the raw media is intact.  As a general rule, never change anything that's on a media card.

    With almost ANY camera format, the way it works is:

    -Make sure the right plugin is installed.
    -If it's on a card, link to the ROOT of the card.  Not the topmost folder, but the actual base directory of the whole card.
    -If you're moving it to the hard drive - move the ENTIRE contents of your card, into a folder on your drive.  When you link, link to that new folder that you created.  So for Canon XF, move the entire CONTENTS folder into a new folder (I like something sortable and descriptive like 20160415-CAM1-CanonXF-01).  Link to that new folder that you created.
