    I picture locked a short film in Premiere 2020 (14.5) and because I had experienced in the past the pain of exporting the aaf for sound from Premiere, I learned to not merge clips in the edit. So this is what I did for this short film, but, precisely as a clock, the export of the sound AAF from Premiere is somehow wrong. I tried everything! I deleted any fade in the sound, any audio effect and volume (which for some reason was problematic), changed the name of some audio that was weird and reimported in the timeline, exported the xml, reimported into Resolve, then imported the xml into into Premiere 2017 and exporting the aaf again from there, but still the AAF is wrong. Basically in Resolve I see that the audio clips connect to the wrong time code of the original sound. And this is not for one single clip, it is basically everything in the timeline. It is so annoying and I don’t know what to do next.
    Could you please help???
    Thank you so much,

    Aii. Pr “offers’ a number of functions that just don’t work. Can you export in another file format? Good luck.

    Yes, thank you Robert for your reply. I managed to export an OMF which I opened in Audition and seems to be fine. I then imported the AAF into Avid and re-exported as an AAF from there. i feel this last AAF should be fine. But hey, what a journey! I hope ADOBE fixes this issue once for all !:)

    While the AAF format isn’t particularly feature-rich (universal compatibility requires simplicity), I can’t say I’ve had a problem like the one you’re experiencing.

    This sounds a bit like timecode formats with different interpretations. What type of files were in the original project and what were the frame rates?
