Collaborating with Davinci Resolve users? 31 Oct 2022 05:42 #122673

Hey!

I'm working a lot with a person who only has Davinci Resolve.

What we need to to is for him to do a basic edit in Resolve that I can then finish in FCP.
We use a Sony FX6, A7SIII and occasionally an A7III.

Problem is when exporting the timeline as an XML file from resolve, only the clips from the FX6 show up in FCP and I get this message when importing the XML:


Anyone successfully doing this with files from these cameras?

We use the same files, NOTHING has changed in them and that's how we want it, don't want to create new files. The edits in Resolve are super basic cuts, no effects or colour adjustments have been made.

Ok,
So I made a simple timeline and tried to go from FCP to Resolve, but getting much of the same results!?

What am I missing? What's the issues with the A7SIII files? (and A7III).

You might consider creating a "test set" of files and uploading them so we can take a look at things in more detail (i.e., try things on our systems)...

Sony A7SIII files do not have valid timecode, clip names, or reel numbers. Probably the reason there's an issue. These should have been properly transcoded to a pro format before using in both systems.

No time of day timecode?

To my knowledge most DSLRs do not embed valid SMPTE TC. That's certainly the case with Sony. They simply use a count that starts at the beginning of the file as 00:00:00:00. However, not every NLE will read it the same way, because each app generates a code in its place based on the count. As long as you are working within the same app, you should be OK. Once you start to interchange between apps, it can become an issue. I'm not sure if that's the case with the OP's issue. However, I know Resolve can be very picky about these things. Another thing to check is if every thing (library, sequence, Resolve project, camera files, are all using the same frame rate.
