Re: Questions on Resolve > Premiere dynamic link proxy work

[Rhys Sherring] "So I shot some stuff in 4K over the weekend using a blackmagic 4K camera and I'm trying to learn about proxys. So I did a test of importing 4k footage to Resolve, exporting individual clips in low res, importing those to premiere, doing an edit, exporting an AAF, and was successful in getting the cut imported to Resolve. If I did a full edit in premiere, with dynamic links of clips edited in After Effects and audio edits in Audition, would the AAF bring all of that information into resolve alright? "
It depends, but generally no. Speed changes don't always survive the transition, and repositions can work but not always. Actual visual effects have to be done outside Resolve and then cut back in as part of the conforming process.

[Rhys Sherring] "Another qusetion: later in the year I'm shooting a short film, but I'm just going to be shooting in HD because 4K would just be unnecessary. If I do the full edit in Premiere, what process would I go through to get the final cut into Resolve just to use it's colour correcting? Would I do the final export from there as well? "
I would advise you to shoot in 4K and then do your decision-making (offline) cut in HD to save overhead, and then export an XML or AAF into Resolve and reconform from the original 4K files for the final. Some cameras (maybe even "most" cameras) only use a small part of the chip in HD, which changes focal lengths and creates a lot of issues. You're generally better off shooting in 4K and then transcoding later for the edit.

Workflow gets very complex and tricky for projects like this, and you would be well-served by doing a Google search or reading many past discussions on issues like that here. Bear in mind it's also possible to edit completely in Resolve. With each version, I think Resolve gets closer and closer to being a complete finishing program, and 12.5 has definitely gone in that direction.
