  • Resolve doesn’t relink to Audio Files

    Posted by Niclas Werres on May 29, 2019 at 9:52 am

    Hello there,

    I’m trying to import the Audiotracks from Premiere to Resolve. Therefore I tried to export a XML and an AAF. When I use the Import Timeline funcion, it creates a timeline and links most of the files, but some audiofiles are offline. Funny thing is, that it imported them correctly in the Media Pool, but doesn’t feel like relinking them.

    So I tried to rerender my audiofiles in Premiere, since it’s having problems with the same files in the XML and the AAF. Now it is having problems with some other files. Same problem, it imports them in the Media Pool, but can’t link them in the timeline.

    Is this a known problem and are there any work around? Because I’m running out of Ideas.

    Best regards,
    Niclas

    Do the audio files have timecode? Do they have unique file names? This is generally the problem when trying to get files to conform properly with an XML.

    What is the file format? That can also have a bearing on the accuracy of the conform.

    What format of files? Resolve has a problem seeing/importing AIFF-C. Can you manually import then from the media page?

    All Audio is transcoded to .wav. They all have a unique name. I can import them into the media page, but like I said, they are even already there. I can also work with them and use them in my timeline. They are just not relinking with some of the cuts in my timeline, which are offline.

    When I use an AAF with rendered Mono Audiofiles, everything reconnects, but then I have cryptic names in it, so I can’t really continue working with them, when I only have files with names in hexcode.

    When I’m importing into another versions of Premiere, I have no problem at all. So the AAF isn’t broken or anything.

    I am having somewhat a similar problem:

    • Exported a storyline from FCP X to Resolve using XML
    • Resolve imported the storyline just fine including all of the multicam clips
    • The only audio that relinked was the audio that was part of the camera recorded video
    • I cannot relink the separately recorded audio in the multicam clips unless I move the audio in the Finder (Mac) from it’s original source and into the media storage folder where the video clips are.
    • Then I must go back into Resolve, select the multicam clip in the media browser and choose to conform from media storage.
    • After the previous step, the audio clips in my multicam clip are relinked

    Any ideas?

    macOS 10.15.2, FCP X 10.4.8, DaVinci Resolve 16.1.2

    [Tangier Clarke] “I cannot relink the separately recorded audio in the multicam clips unless I move the audio in the Finder (Mac) from it’s original source and into the media storage folder where the video clips are.”

    Is the drive location for these audio audio files included as a location within the storage pool. You have to set that in Resolve preferences.

    Is there an emoji for embarrassing oversight induced by too much FCP X use?

    LOL. It’s not like we haven’t all been there ☺
