AVC Intra 100 in Resolve 12.1
I have a project that was edited on Final Cut 7 using footage from a Panasonic HPX370 camera brought into FCP as AVC Intra 100 files. They work fine in FCP7. Very simple edit with footage and a few graphics. Edited on an old MacPro with Snow Leopard. I used Media Manager to copy the assets to a newer iMac.
Export an XML from Final Cut 7 to the new iMac running Resolve 12.1. Open it up in Resolve and it works OK. However, none of the AVC Intra 100 footage will playback. Neither will it play back in Quicktime player.
Went to Apple and downloaded the Pro Video Quicktime components but I cannot install them to this computer since it does not have Final Cut, Motion or Compressor installed (seriously Apple!). In the old days it was just a matter of dragging the Quicktime components to the Quicktime Library folder. The new iMac will not allow the components to be copied from the old machine to the new machine. The newer Quicktime Player will, however, load the AVC Intra 100 clip and then convert it to ProRes, but cannot play the file itself. I shoot on the Panasonic 370, and I was hopefully planning using Resolve to edit, ingesting the MFX Content folder from the 370 into Resolve.
Is this going to work? It seems that with the number of cameras shooting AVC Intra footage, it should not be an issue to edit in Resolve. Or am I just missing something obvious? I hope….Have the P2 issues on Resolve still not been addressed after all this time?
Not my monkeys. Not my circus.
