    Avid Media Composer (8.2.4) to DaVinci Resolve (11.3.1)

    Hi there!

    I need to find the best way to export from Media Composer to DaVinci.

    What is essential to the DaVinci team is that they need a QuickTime file because they need to run the Scene Cut Detection feature, so they have all angles from some clips cutted out, because those clips are mixed on the Reggie by the director.

    Our workflow at this moment is this: Make a VideoMixDown > Export to QuickTime (self contained) .mov

    This takes us some time, about 15-20 minutes to a sequence with 50+ minutes.

    The AAF workflow won't work because of DaVinci's Scene Cut Detection.

    Export QuickTime reference won't work either we don't know why, I'm guessing the issue is that some clips don't have the Tape field filled.

    We ingest material from tapes, KiPros, Sony SxS, GoPros and audio from Audio recorder's cards.

    I'll appreciate any help from this community.

    Thanks in advance

    Best regards

    I have not tried this but it occurs to me with 11 3.1's Edit page you may be able to combine both methods.

    QT movie for Scene cut as new Resolve project
    Import an AAFof your cut into that project.
    Edit the Scene cut timeline and AAF timeline together in a new timeline multi video track timeline. (Reasonably sure this would work with Resolve 12b's edit page not nearly as sure for 11.3.1's)

    FWIW with Resolve 12 you can turn video tracks on and off in both Edit and Colour pages (again not so sure about R 11 for this function)

    Make a video mixdown, right click the mixdown clip in the Avid bin and choose 'reveal file.' You can use that mxf file in Resolve with scene cut setection. No need to make a quicktime. If you need audio send it sperately as a wav export.

    And you can make a EDL of the track that was used to make the mixdown to feed into Resolve if you want an alternative to the scene detection feature.

    MacPro, MacBook Pro and a Cube (masquerading as a kleenex dispenser). [view my complete system specs]

    Must think of something clever to go here...
