Pro Import with XML not working properly...linking fails
by Hans Meier on Dec 2, 2014 at 2:36:28 pm
I had this workflow running with no problems for some time, but all of a sudden I can't manage to do my beloved workflow anymore. Here is what I do:
1) editing on avid media composer
2) EDL conform in Resolve to grading DPX-sequences
3) Export XML for After Effects
4) Pro Import the XML in AE with the proper folder for the source-files
After Effects has no problems doing the conform and everything looks fine, but he does not link or find the source files. When I manually connect the offline-media everything is fine. But this is a LOT of work for a 5 minute movie. Like I said - I used this workflow with no problems for a couple of time. I can't really remember, but I think this problem happened when I switched from CC to CC 2014.
I tried the same workflow also in CS6 and CC. Same problem.
The entry in the XML is totally fine. Seems that AE has some problems with the DPX sequences. I tried a test-cut and used Quicktimes for the conform in Resolve. Then I'm able to do a full conform in AE afterwards with no problems. Again - it worked with DPX seqs before.
I'm out of options...tried a lot of stuff to solve this...any ideas???
