Re: Codec workflow with DaVinci Resolve 8.2.x on Windows when source is XDCAM

On the Mac side, I almost always converted source files to ProRes using Compressor.

Recently, after moving from FCP to Premiere Pro CS 5.5, I began using Adobe Media Encoder but it would often fail half way through long sequences being run out of Premiere on a Mac.

FFMPEG will work but frankly I do not want to be rockin the commandline while I am editing.

Right now I am seriously looking at Cineform Studio Premium as a solution for file conversion. I have heard more than a few people sing the praises of Cineform as an intermediary codec. Similar to ProRes in many regards.

The issues are going to be (unless something as changed recently) with Resolve not playing nicely with XDCAM EX material and the inability to encode to ProRes on the Windows platform with exception of the commandline app FFMPEG.

My goal is to find the shortest line from A to B without sacrificing too much quality.
