Hi there,

We have a very similar workflow for commercials here, I've found the most reliable thing to do is export the graded footage to full quality DPX files for after effects. If you need the whole sequence in after effects then generate an AAF and use Pro Import to get it all in, then relink your files to the DPX renders from resolve. I always make sure they render to separate folders shot by shot, then you can easily link them back in after effects.

Once any graphics work is done, render the files back to DPX and add them into your media pool. Insert them into a copy of your sequence and check the video. Then for delivery into avid we've always found that exporting to ProRes shifts the colour on Import (as is well documented) which screws appearance of the grade up and creates much profuse sweating and head scratching. To get around this, we just render directly to a DNX185X MXF file from Resolve, either shot by shot with and AAF or as a full commercial edit if it's definitely locked. Then use the media tool to get it into avid and drag it into a bin of choice.

This might benefit you as you can't output ProRes 444 from your windows box. We've done at least 10 ads this way since last year and it seems to work nice and smoothly every time.

Hope this helps,
