    Import Audio / PNG

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to AVID MC so apologies for the very basic question.

    What's the best way to import audio files (wavs) and stills or titles in PNG format? Shall I Link and then consolidate / transcode? If so better to consolidate or transcode?

    Many thanks,

    Filippo

    Hi, 

    It's best to IMPORT audio. 

    Linking/Transcoding is a better workflow for VIDEO.

    Hi

    We always import audio and .PNG's or PSD's, that way you can easily delete the avid media files and 'batch reimport' if the graphic needs updating.  If you link and transcode / consolidate .PNG's or PSD's or .mov's for animated graphics we have trouble then if it changes and we need to update it, the only solution is to replace it on the timeline and add back any effects / keyframes on it.
