When I encounter an odd error message and its solution, I make a note. This is one of those notes. I want solutions to turn up better in searches for other Avid users (and myself). As with all error posts on the site, the casual reader can just skip ahead to other less-technical content.

Trying to export a Tab-Delmited .txt file of a bin full of subclips as I’ve done many times, I got this error:

“No master clips or subclips were selected or found. Export was aborted.”

The fix was simple. I closed the bin and re-opened it. Then I tried File > Export… once more and it worked.

I don’t know what I did to produce the error, but I know it wasn’t caused by having clips selected or by doing anything unusual with my Set Bin Display… settings.

Work for Avid? Know more about what’s going on? Know a better solution? Leave a comment below.
