Thanks for your reply, Juan. I would presume that too, but I've just found this info from ARRIs website on Alexa's technical specs:

Far down on the page under In-camera Recording it says: "All codecs record legal range video with embedded audio, timecode and metadata. [...] Codec: ProRes 4444."

From reading this I believe that it would actually be right to tell Resolve to interpret the Alexa clips as video instead of data, since the Alexa codec records "legal video"? The selection between these two options for Alexa's footage has troubled me, as I periodically get better grading results with selecting video level inputs rather than data.

But this would also mean that Resolve inherently interprets these files the wrong way and therefore preforms an unnecessary stage of legalization on the footage. One of the world's leading grading systems should be able to import Alexa's footage (one of the most widely used digital cinema cameras available) in a proper way.
