To export a properly formatted ALE file from Avid, you'll need to double-check a few settings.
- With a bin open, choose the columns of metadata that you want included in your export.
- In the bin, make sure that nothing is selected (e.g., clips or sequences) and either right-click in an empty space and select Export Bin... or choose File > Output > Export Bin... from the menu.
- Navigate to where you want to save the exported file and enter a name.
- Confirm that the exporting setting at the bottom is Avid Log Exchange.
- Click Save.
