Image sequence workflow and export to Resolve
on Apr 28, 2016 at 11:44:39 am

Hi, I'm importing the image sequence, do a select all, append edit, select all, duration set to 1 frame, select all, make compound clip,.

I edit with all these compound clips, and all is fine... except...

when exporting a fcpxml file in import this into resolve, I get a huge problem.

The compounds are gone, and visible is only each of the stills that was inside the compound...so why does resolve decompose my compound ?

Or is there an option for this... this also happens in resolve 12.5

You can make compound clips back in Resolve.

Select the stills, right click and choose "New Compound Clip"

Yes, I know. But on a whole feature ? Thats way too many shots to make compounds clip for :)

You have to suffer for your art! :-D

FCPX is really bad with image sequences, and Resolve is really weird with stills (which is what they are in FCPX, not an image sequence as much as we want them to be).

I don't know of a way to turn this off or import it any differently.

I should add, you can import your image sequences to Resolve first, then import the fcpxml. Resolve then makes a one frame clip for every image in your sequence.

So if you have a 48 frame image sequence, Resolve will show 48 clips on your timeline that are linked to the image sequence, and have a starting point of the first frame of your image sequence. You then have to delete the other 47 frames, and then extend the tails on the first frame to complete the clip.

It's very convoluted and easier to just send the stills over from the FCPX timeline, and recommend in Resolve, unfortunately.

Simpler solution would be make clips in Compressor from the image sequences up front and use those for editing and grading. You can always reconnect back to image sequences back in Resolve at the tail end of editing.

+1 for Compressor making image sequences . I frequently do time lapse with thousands of digital stills. Making the image sequence in compressor is fast and easy, then export as .mov, suck it into FCPX and bada bing.

Maybe I'm too old (fashioned).
Using FCP(X) is wasted time.
Using Compressor is the same including maybe a generation quality loss.

I always use QT 7orWhatever Player to create a ref movie. Create a droplet which might include the command to import the result into FCP(X) and it's done in a second and there won't be any worries.

Do those properly survive FCP<>Resolve roundtrips?

Last I tried (early v12/beta v12) it worked fine.
Reason I tried though was not to test this but transport of xml subtitles.
