Importing Avid EDL = Black footage
on Apr 16, 2012 at 4:56:03 am

Hey All,

I've got a feature split into 5 reels each separated into 3 EDLs (2K VFX, 4K VFX and 2K Drama).

The original cut was done in Avid using MXFs with the same filenames (A123_C123_clipID).

What I'm doing is opening Da Vinci, adding the R3Ds to the media pool then opening the EDLs from Avid.

It links the EDLs back to the R3Ds fine but the resulting footage on the timeline is just a black box.

Its not showing any error messages.

When I export the new timeline to an XML or whatever and import it to Final Cut or Premiere or wherever either doesn't open or opens with blank footage again - not unlinked footage but blank footage...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best

Hi Tim,

did you ad r3ds by using the edl or manually?
Checked TC-version on source tab?

regards

k.

Hey Knut,

Thanks for the response.

I tried it both manual and auto.

The EDL contains the entire clip name except the suffix.

All the R3ds have been put in the same folder so they're easy to find.

Whether I have TC at Absolute or Camera in the source tab it doesn't work.

It should be absolute as that's how the EDL was made.

Stuck....

Cheers
t

Some settings have to be set before importing media to the pool.
I would try again with right settings, after removing all clips from the mediapool.
If that doesn't work, I would try a manuall edit in seeking to establish if there is a tc-offset.

Just to be sure:
Use timecode ‘embedded in the source clip’ is selected?
