    resolve and avid detecting native framerate of source and online conforming / finishing 1920(4K+)

    it is fun that one can currently take 1920(4K+), any frame-rate too and edit it in the Avid using AMA. The avid adds a motion effect when the framerate of the source file does not match the project framerate for sequence playback.

    this is fun because as long as you frame the shot correctly in the Avid Reformat selection, one can match this in Resolve for the perfect image matching your raster width and height.

    what I love is in theory a camera master source can be 1920+, any-frame-rate and one can edit with the native master source file (tape-less) right now with Avid - Avid Media Access (A.M.A.). And use Resolve to deliver a 1920(+) master source file.

    the issue I have noticed is that for some codec (compression / decompression) and wrappers (file types .mp4, .mov are some examples of wrappers), Resolve will not properly detect the standard native framerate of the master source. I must use the "clip attributes" in Resolve to manually choose the proper standard-frame-rate for these source masters for the perfect online conform. Resolve currently for me will attempt to conform these sources and will not flag anything in the timeline - thus, Resolve is using the wrong timecode count in the Resolve timeline. Those shots can be off by 30 seconds+ etc...

    also if Resolve is using a source master file and the frame rate is not one that resolve supports then Resolve will use it's own standard framerate to calculate the timecode of the file. I would love it if Resolve could use non-standard framerates and natively by default choose the proper frames per second per each source file master.

    In the Avid I use the window-burn-in-effect and choose to display the source native framerate and the file-name for each edit creating a chase-reference for Resolve. In Resolve I can change the clip attributes and have the perfect online conform using this chase-reference as a guide.

    Looks like the Product manager for Resolve has invited you to help them solve the issue in the Resolve forums Scott
