Codec workflow with DaVinci Resolve 8.2.x on Windows when source is XDCAM
on Aug 10, 2012 at 4:35:35 am

Presently finishing the software install a PC workstation centered around servicing DaVinci Resolve production work among other things.

Much of the material I will be working with will be XDCAM or ProRes as source files. The NLE will be Premiere Pro at least for now (too much audio gear that does not play nicely with AVID).

Would like to know what is the best way of dealing with codecs such as XDCAM and ProRes that are not friendly to either DaVinci Resolve or a Windows environment in some cases. I am, of course, interested in maintaining metadata and an elegant way of converting files to a Resolve/Premiere Pro format.

I have read about ffmpeg for conversion but I am looking for a more elegant and transparent solution with a straightforward conversion including metadata and something close to a "roundtripping" kind of workflow (I understand the issues about transitions and timing when doing XML exporting).

A workflow for XDCAM based source files is of particular importance.

DNxHD and Cineform seem like obvious contenders as an intermediary format.

I knew the drill on a Macintosh...
