Can’t Import/AMA Link MKV to Avid Media Composer – Solution

I’m trying to import some .mkv files to Avid Media Composer for editing, but Avid doesn’t support MKV format. I heard of AMA plugin, but it seems that AMA link can’t help me out at all.

It supports batch conversion and setting relative output parameters before starting to convert .mkv to Avid Media Composer. It not only can finish conversion between MKV and Avid DNxHD, but also include MKV to ProRes, MKV to MPEG-2, MKV to Apple InterMediate Codec and so on. For Windows users, please get Video Converter.
