    Hi,

    I have some MXF files (1 Video, 2 Audio) that have been placed in the following folder on an Avid; C:\Avid MediaFiles\MXF\1.

    I want to create an AAF file that references these files as a single master clip, such that the AAF file can be imported in to a bin in Avid for a user to work with.

    I'm really struggling to find in the documentation exactly which objects I should add to the AAF, and how they should be linked. Right now I just create a master mob, and create an essence with a network locator. Should I be doing more than that?

    Thanks for any help,

    Tim.
