Timecode Conflicts
on Jan 30, 2013 at 10:38:54 pm

I am new to Resolve and have encountered this error message:
Unable to link clip "" to "sample clip" due to timecode extents do not match.

I imported a Final Cut Pro XML that was exported from Premiere Pro CS5, Resolve would import the clip but would not link the clip for reasons unknown. Is this issue in CS5 or am I simply just messing a step or using a wrong setting?

Resolve 9.1
Adobe Production Premium CS5
Motion 5
Mac Pro
G-Drive external drive connected via Firewire 800
Mountain Lion

Hi David,

I believe that is the error message that you get when Resolve can find the file referenced and import it to the media pool but can't link a clip on the timeline to it, because Resolve believes that the timecode of the timeline clip isn't within the range of the clip in the media pool...

So I would check that the clips in the media pool have exactly the start and end timecodes that they should (matching the camera originals) and check what the timecodes are listed for the clips in the timeline...

It could be anything, but likely either that Resolve isn't reading the media pool clip timecodes correctly, or Premiere isn't writing the XML with the right timecodes...
