Avid MC 5.5 to DaVinci Resolve 8.2.1 Mac Conform Problems
on Apr 23, 2012 at 5:15:37 am

Hello, and welcome to my first post on Creative Cow!

I am using DaVinci Resolve 8.2.1 on a Mac to color grade a 1080p 29.97 sequence from Avid MC 5.5 and having serious problems during the conform. A great deal of the sequence is coming in either blank, or black with a red X. A message pops up telling me that some of my clips weren’t imported, and then lists a series of clips that were not found. This occurs when using an AAF from Avid. Similar things occur with an EDL.

I think I have isolated the problem clips to shots that were not transcoded to DNxHD from XDCAM EX, and .jpeg images, both of which are not supported by Resolve. Problem is, these are a large part of the show.

Having made this discovery I figured I would just transcode the whole sequence into DNxHD and then bump out an AAF from the transcoded version of the sequence. Before transcoding I moved all my media from Avid Media Files/MXF/1 to /2 so the transcoded media would all be consolidated in the 1 folder.

Problem: when I bring the AAF of the transcoded sequence into Resolve none, I repeat, none of the clips link up. They are all black with a red X. Resolve tells me that all of my clips could not be found.


Thanks for reading
