I had a client deliver a tcp 7 project file to me that was to be exported for colouring in resolve. The original project had mixed media (16mm film converted to prores, h.264 from a 5d and some DV b-roll shots. I was told that all of the files were converted to prores and the fcp7 timeline didn't have any other format in it. I proceeded to bring the project into resolve, completed the grade and then was unable to render out properly. Every time I attempted to export it would crash at the same frame. I then realized that the footage which was supposed to have been transcoded was still in its native form. I am assuming this must be what is causing resolve to freeze on export as I have never seen this issue before.
Has anyone encountered this problem before and if so do you have any suggestions? At this point I am assuming I will need to reconfirm all of the DV/5d footage to prores and then export a new xml for resolve. Any other suggestions for quicker/easier workflows or methods within resolve that may help with the render process?
Not sure about doing anything from in Resolve, but it does sound like a job for FCP Media Manager... Just recompress the timeline you were trying to grade and reconnect via xml like you said...Should solve your problem.
