Best codec to render to when sending to Premiere Pro

If I do my color grading in Resolve, which lossless codec/wrapper should I deliver to so I can edit in Premiere pro? I checked, Tero, it's not in the manual.

Hi Duke,
A lot of my PC based industry friends use Cineform. Have you tried it? Or DNxHD is another good editing codec. I'm ProRes all the way since I'm on a mac.

are you using an XML to retain edit points? yea, cineform level 4/5 or dnxhr are really, really high quality, close to lossless.

I stick to DNx codecs. It has the added bonus that it is also the codec of choice if returning to Avid. DNx in mxf wrappers should be the default delivery codec as it is open and available, not closed and proprietary like ProRes.

If you absolutely need a lossless format I would go with DPX or EXR. The filesize will be huge but it's lossless. Otherwise 10 bit DNxHD/DNxHR as mentioned in other comments. They aren't straight up lossless but they are "visually lossless".

That's what I thought. DNxHD or HR. I was just wondering why Resolve defaulted to Quicktime in the Delivery section. It's not like the list was in alphabetical order.

Thanks, everybody.

I've been doing DNX444 to Premiere for 1 particular project, but because of either my lack of knowledge on how to change the color interprelation, or Premiere's lack of ability to change how it reads a file, I select full levels in Resolve for my output. Blacks should then look proper in Premiere. 444 should be full, but I find Resolve, if left in Auto, outputs it at Video level, perhaps reading the DNX tag as more important than the 444 tag.

Either way, set your levels to Full if going to Premiere.
