    DaVinci Resolve -> Avid Media Composer Workflow issues

    Anyone have experience with these two together?
    Have been successfully using this workflow without any bugs with AAF in Folder from Avid to Resolve and then back again with AAF and MXF. This works great with reconnect and speed changes etc as long as there is no audio in the files.

    But when I wanted to do some changes and send a new render of all the clips to Avid (replacing all clips but in different MXF Avid Media Files) I started getting the either no clips relinking to the actual render files (they link to originals)
    Or they do reconnect but without being able to playback (Error message on Avid: Inefficient Media)

    Anyone that have had any trouble with this and know the workaround?

    You cannot make any editorial changes in Resolve when doing a roundtrip. When you do, it creates a new AAF and any effects, layers, etc. it did not understand get removed. The roundtrip works because it only updates the media it is referencing (new colored clips) and returning the same AAF with references to the new media. That way any effects known and otherwise are still preserved when returning to MC.

    [Michael Phillips] “You cannot make any editorial changes in Resolve when doing a roundtrip.”
    this is not true if you use Scott Freeman tutorial, you can make any editorial change because you use the original sequence to relink resolve generated media files.

    True, but that is is not a roundtrip of the AAF, just the MXF essence. If you made editorial changes in Resolve, they will not reflect on the original sequence still in MC. You can send the media as you have done. Are you doing a relink to selected to the new media? There may be MOB confusion between the previous version of media being created.

    Sure, you need to do a relink to selected!
