Can I export an old XDCAM laden project from Avid MC to Resolve?
I have to wait till next Monday to try (studio down for repairs).
Ive done R3D>AMA>AvidMC>Resolve but not from older projects.

No gotten round to testin that yet.
Mainly transcode to DMX 185 in Avid first for most stuff unless it's Red and I need to go back to the original source media.
Have you checked the Resolve codec support list? That has all the supported codecs on it and if XDCAM is there your in luck.

Xdcam is only supported in an mov container. To use AAF into resolve you need to transcode to DNxHD.

Sorry I didnt clarify my workflow.
The files are all DNxHD due to import from XDCAM.
Im just wondering (out loud) if its a simple export from Avid into Resolve then back.
Trying to create one killer workstation at work with Avid and Resolve all on the same box.

We have been playing with this workflow for a while, but still trying too work out all the quinks

What we have done is XDcam media AMA linked in.

Finished the Edit and transcoded the sequence to DnXHD.

Exported a AAF of that sequence.

Opened in resolve and color graded.

Then in Resolve Render the media into the Avid Media MXF Folder.

Export out a New AAF.

Then in the Avid media folder you have to delete (or move) the.MDB files, so when avid opens it can rebuild the database with the new color graded media there.

In Avid import the AAF and volia there your new sequence all color graded.

WE have found a couple of quirks depending on the length of the sequence if it really long 1 hr+ its best to export smaller chunks to bring into resolve as sometimes the avid wigs out and doesn't bring in all of the graded render files.

also if you are working in multi frame rate sequence make sure that all of the media in the "wrong" frame rate is rended into the "right" frame rate as resolve can't work in a mulit frame rates.

Hey there, Eric.

If you've already transcoded to DNxHD, then this round trip workflow might work well for you:







It doesn't hurt that the guy giving the tutorial has some pretty funny dry humor. :P

Hope this helps!
