Workflow for relinking proxys to source material
on Apr 27, 2016 at 8:39:27 pm

Hi everybody,
I hope this is not too much of a stupid question, either way, I'd appreciate your help very much.

I have a folder with DPX files that contains a clip of a 4K scan of b/w 35mm material.
What I want to do is this:
Import the DPX into Resolve, then export as an "offline" ProRes LT for editing in Premiere. Then, I'd like to somehow get these cuts back into Resolve to grade the clips and have the final export.
I thought I'd just export an AAF, then import the AAF in Resolve and then relink the ProRes LT clip to the source material (in my case the DPX folder).
Unfortunately, this does not work - nothing happens when I click on "Relink Selected Clips..." and chose the DPX folder.

Is there any other way how to do this?
Thanks! Philip

Force conform? Copy grades?

With force conform I am able to relink the proxy to the source DPXs, but the cuts are gone (they are there, but every edited clip starts from 0).
Not sure what you mean by copy grades, how would that help?

It would be an option if you had built a new project with the source media -- but I don't think you've started grading anything yet, so never mind. It would be a way to get established grades from a proxy timeline into a reconformed source media project.

Is timecode embedded in the DPX files? If it is, then it should be possible to rebuild the cuts.

Color would have to go through ColorTrace, and it would only be approximate if you color-correct with anything but the DPX files. How long is this clip? Some of this could be done manually without a lot of trouble. DPX is fairly system intensive, and I usually tell clients to go with something a little less demanding, like ProRes 444 or 444HQ.

This has always been on my mind.
Do you feel DPX is more of a end of finishing format?
The only time Ive ever used it to date is to get my files into my REDPLAYER for 4K viewing.
Eventually I will need to use DPX for final but when is it best in your opinion.
