Here's what I've been doing for a Resolve/Avid workflow. It's still a bit bumpy, but it's the best that I've come across for the types of tv shows I've been doing (avid fx, boris, PiP, speed fx, etc). I plan on putting this together in a tutorial soon.

For this to work correctly, be sure the checkbox for "Assist using Reel Numbers" is off.

1. Export a textless version of your show in a format Resolve can read. Exporting in "acts" will improve the performance in Resolve as well as making it easier to deal with changes.

2. Export an EDL of V1 using either the "file 16" or "file 32" templates


3. Add your files to the media pool and preconform from the EDL

4. Grade and render in target mode


5. import or AMA your footage and overcut

But wait! What if the cut changes?!?! and it usually does...

1. In Avid, export the act(s) that have changes with an EDL for V1

2. Make a new project in Resolve, add the files and preconform again

3. Use the colortrace function to move all the grades from your previous project to the new project

4. color remaining clips, render, and import/AMA into Avid

This is my "beta" workflow. I'm open to hear how this could be improved.

Ideally, I'd like Resolve to work more like Film Master does, which has VERY tight integration with Avid. AFAIK, everything comes over in the AAF file: effects, boris, sapphire, you name it. That said, Film Master is significantly more expensive. The usual time/money/speed triad applies.
