  • Im not really an editor but i edited something for a friend. I got the colored footage back from our colorist and they are mxf files which I don't know much about. I transferred the files into the MXF folder in the Avid Media files folder then tried opening them up with the media tool but when i open up the project all the files are the ones that are already apart of the project. Im kind of confused as to what i'm supposed to do in the beginning. Am I doing something wrong? Why aren't the files showing up? Also im working on mac.
