Importing Avid EDL = Black footage
on Apr 16, 2012 at 4:56:03 am

Hey All,

I've got a feature split into 5 reels each separated into 3 EDLs (2K VFX, 4K VFX and 2K Drama).

The original cut was done in Avid using MXFs with the same filenames (A123_C123_clipID).

What I'm doing is opening Da Vinci, adding the R3Ds to the media pool then opening the EDLs from Avid.

It links the EDLs back to the R3Ds fine but the resulting footage on the timeline is just a black box.

Its not showing any error messages.

When I export the new timeline to an XML or whatever and import it to Final Cut or Premiere or wherever either doesn't open or opens with blank footage again - not unlinked footage but blank footage...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
