What is an AVB file?
Library or "bin" of files used by an Avid video-editing project; stores references to media clips, sub-clips, sequences, titles, effects, EQ templates, etc.
AVB files are "pointer files" that organize files used by a certain project, but do not contain the actual media. Therefore, when backing up an Avid project, AVB files must be backed up along with the corresponding media files.
Avid bin files can be imported into an existing project by selecting File→Import and choosing an AVB file.
