I am running the most current version of Resolve but do have a quick workflow question. I will pretty much film in raw format so what is the best way to get that footage to Fusion and back? I prefer to convert to ProRes, send XML to FCP X for editing, send an XML back to Resolve then color grade the raw files. I am wondering if I should go uncompressed or use another format. Any help is greatly aprreciated.

Fusion should support pretty much anything that Resolve can play back, so the choice is "whatever does not limit your ability to carry on corrections", and what the definition of "uncompressed" is these days is somewhat subjective and doesn't usually mean what it used to. "Re-compressed" might make more sense.

If you are using fusion connect, you pretty much can choose which format you'll send to fusion, from dpx or tiff sequences to a Quicktime file with any supported codec. If you're into highest quality but longer render times and much more hard drive space, go for dpx sequence.
Yes, it does. But since Resolve will have to transcode it anyway - its not linking to a clip in your media pool, I'd use dpx or tiff or maybe quicktime uncompressed for Fusion connect. It does, however, suppport versioning for Fusion composites, which is much appreciated.
