Problems With Importing Aaf into resolve. From avid
on Jun 1, 2013 at 5:03:47 pm

Hello I have a new exciting problem in my avid davinci workflow.

In my davinci project I have Red files, and some quicktime animation files.

Well my workflow is like this i first imported all red files in davinci and then exported them as dnhd 36 to avid.

Well the problem starts on the way back to davinci.

when I import the aaf to davinci I get 13 video tracks instead of one, and i dont know how to fix this.

My avid sequence only has 1 video track no audio and no effects, still the aaf in davinci producese a timeline with 13 video tracks.

Does anybody know why this happens?

if you have only one timeline, and it doesn't have speed ramps, try EDL.

Ok. Well avid project is filled with like 30 timelines but I only tried export Aaf from one.

And it was clean, only video track and no effects.

I did find another solution though to make it work for me but not into davinci. But I will try to solve this cause We use the davinci workflow in my school.

What other Edl can i export from avid than AAF?

If anyone is interested my other way arround that I took, was to export an Aaf from my sequence and consolidate the media into a folder on computer from avid.

Then I took my files and put in a new project(in symphony) and Relinked my dnxhd files directly to r3d instead. Then all my other material that came from after effects i batch imported.

For this time I will grade in symphony though cause Ive got more files thats waiting on coming in and I dont trust the davinci workflow for now.

AAF is not EDL, they are separate things. EDL supports less effects and transitions you can read about it in the Davinci Manual.

As for the import, the Manual - from page 184 - details the process.
But as far as I can tell it shouldn't be a complicated process..I don't know AVID at all, but I was always able to export a linked AAF and import it to Davinci without any problem.
