Resolve 9 crashes when rendering out slug or offline files

Resolve 9.0 lite - importing FCP 7 XML 5 - for roundtrip back to FCP 7 - rendering ProRes

When I render out my timeline, Resolve crashes when it hits any slug, offline files or files with bad timecode re-connects.

After the crashes, I can't just start from rendering from the crash point. If I do, the Resolve-XML created after the partial render will only reconnect the portion of the timeline that didn't crash. The pre-crash portion of the timeline can't be reconnected because it doesn't point to the unique filenames rendered out.

So every time it crashes, I have to re-render everything and hope it will make it to the end... It makes for a very long saturday at the edit suite trying to output 68 minute shows.

I didn't have this problem with Resolve 8 - it would power through offline files, I can't remember it crashing on render outputs.

I guess the lesson here is to really clean up your timeline before rendering in version 9. No slug, no offline files, and hope it renders out.

The other option is to render the entire timeline as a single clip. Using this render method, Resolve will render everything out without crashing, but it defies the whole XML workflow.

BMD is aware of this problem, and I had great support from them in figuring it out. The advice I got was to flag the first problem clip, then all problem clips will be flagged. Delete them all and render.

That's an interesting workaround, I'll test it out.

Thanks for the tip John!
