Avid AAF round trip problems
on Aug 21, 2014 at 7:54:36 pm

Hi
I am trying to import an AAF of dailies (DNXHD 45) made in Resolve (V11) into Avid (Symphony v6.04)
I get these errors every time (see attachments):

If I click "continue" through the errors, I see the clips in the bin with V1 A0-2 in the tracks column.
They wont play though and keep giving errors.
However, if I open the media tool and drag the clips into a bin they open fine. Under "track" it says V1 A1-2,
or V1 A1-8 - like it should, depending on my resolve audio export settings. These clips play fine.
This makes me think that the DNXHD files are fine - it's just the AAF that Avid doesn't like for some reason.
Anybody seen these error messages? Am I losing any metadata by dragging from the media tool, instead of importing the AAF?
I have tried using V7 of Avid with the same results. I have tried different combinations of export settings
using the Avid AAF round trip preset in Resolve as a starting point with no luck.
The original footage is Sony XAVC with 8 channels exported as DNXHD 45.
Thanks
Chris

[Chris Coote] "Anybody seen these error messages? Am I losing any metadata by dragging from the media tool, instead of importing the AAF?"

Similar error messages... but not the same. I got errors somewhat like this when I was trying to deal with some XDCam footage without the proper decoder installed, but I don't think this is your issue.

I doubt you would lose any metadata by dragging with the media tool -- another method is to delete the .mdb file, re-launch Symphony and let the application re-scan, then drag it into a new folder.

I can't think of anymore conflicts other than some fundamental mismatch between media types and project settings between Symphony and Resolve Evelyn.

You are exporting a new AAF from Resolve, correct?... and conforming with the Avid MediaFiles/MXF/# catalog protocol...

Yes, new AAF from Resolve - the one Resolve creates when using Avid AAF round trip. And conform using "assist using reel names embedded in source file". Have tested this and it works.
