prores clips with not extansion - Can't read in Resolve
on Jun 12, 2013 at 5:16:17 pm

This is a general question for my knowledge/understanding -

Why clips with not '.mov' or with the '.-v.mov' extension are not recognized in resolve, yet been seen in Final cut?

Thanks,

Ronen

sounds like media managed shots so just adjust the naming convention to be simply .mov and it should show up now in resolve after refreshing the directory.

yes, I know that I can do that.
However, then you need to relink in FCP.
And doing it to 50+ clips is time consuming.

FCP will batch relink them.

don't worry about removing the -v part. This issue happens to me all the time with FCP MM projects. What I do is use Automator to batch rename. As long as you don't kill the -v part FCP will batch relink and resolve will be happy.

Build a workflow to get specified finder items then choose the rename action. In the rename action choose to replace text. So find -v and replace with -v.mov

here the automator workflow

file wrangler will allow you to batch add a file extension.

Thank you!

Those are all great solutions, and I going to use them!.

But why FCP can read those and not resolve?

I think Resolve requires files to have an extension to recognise it as video

"A Better Finder Rename" is another great mac utility that would make very very quick work of renaming the files. I've used it for years and it's super helpful! There's a windows version with a similar name as well.
