Distortion after loading XML
on Oct 15, 2012 at 5:01:10 am

I have a timeline I wanted to load into Resolve that I got from FCP7 (XML). The footage is 1440x1080 and displays fine in FCP but when I load the XML file into Resolve (and I confirm the dimensions) it squishes the image. I've taken a screen shot of the original look of the footage and the result in Resolve. Let me know if any more information is needed. Thanks!

My guess is that your distortion is due to fitting or cropping your image relative your timeline resolution. These are both defined in your settings.

The box that comes up when I load the XML shows that it's 1440x1080 and shows settings that match the FCP timeline. I tried changing the dimensions inside resolve to 1920 but it it didn't change the picture at all, it just gave it black on either side o the squished image. I had the same problem in AE and that's how I fixed the problem there. I have a feeling I'm just missing some kind of setting I'm missing here.

Okay, I finally found the master project settings (I'm obviously new to the program) and I messed with all the options for pixel aspect ratio (including trying to change the aspect ratio to 1920 to see if that would do anything) and everything I tried just squeezed the image even more.

Is the problem I'm gavin most likely solved by the box that comes up when I load the XML or later in the settings menus?

Did you carry across image repositions with the xml? If so go into color menu and uncheck use xml sizing in timeline menu. That will confirm or eliminate xml as the issue.

If you're talking about the setting when you load the XML that says "use sizing information," I left that unchecked. Also, When I right click on the clips in the timeline in the Conform window, "Force Conform Enabled" is checked. I unchecked it and rechecked it and it didn't make a difference, but does that setting play a role in the problem at some point?

Unchecking that would bypass any fcp repo being recreating if you had checked use resize info during the loading of xml.

Have you brought any of the files into a new session in Resolve without the use of xml? I'd eliminate the xml from the equation. If it's still doing it it has to be a setting for bow the image is being fit into a timeline setting.

I tried making a new project and importing the footage with the same result., so definitely not an XML problem. Seems weird that its so hard to get anamorphic footage ingested. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm still working invited as well, just in case I stumble across the solution.
