OK so I have an edit that was done in Media Composer and sent to me as an AAF with embedded media. Using Automatic duck I successfully imported the project into FCP 7.03. Despite telling the Duck to convert to Pro Res the code is still DNxHD but I have the code installed so...
The plan is now to sport to resolve or colour to grade so I create an XML. Color shows up as offline media - Resolve tells me that the timecode extents do not match. OK so lets media manage and force everything into proves and see where that gets us.
The media manage works but when I look at the files created they all had a V as a suffix - adding .mov shows that they are Quicktimes but changing the suffix won't help with my XML...
I've spent a day trying to sort this - The XML will load in FCPX but won't go back into resolve. The fact that everything is fine in FCP would suggest that theres a problem with the sequence.
Hi Sean, as per your question on AAF round trip, it sounds like you have a number of operational issues that prevent successful roundtrip.
The basic requirement is; Every clip should be uniquely identified.
That can be done by a combination of timecode, reel name, file name, path, frame count etc. These can be set up in the conform settings and if your clips have two or three of these conditions correct then XML and AAF round trip will be reliable. Note: Duplicate use of the same clip is valid with conditions.
