    I am new to Resolve 10 lite

    Sorry if this is a basic question but I am still learning how this program works.

    I want to be able to edit a timeline in Adobe PP CC and then export it to do finishing in Resolve

    After watching tutorials and reading parts of the manual I gave it a try, but failed.

    Here’s what I did on my Mac pro with the latest Adobe Premier and Resolve 10 lite:

    Export my edited timeline as a FCP xml.

    Import FCP XML into resolve.

    Leave “Load XML” window at default settings

    Name new sequence as test and click OK

    Then I get a window that says 9 of 9 clips not yet found.
    Do you want to select anther folder to search.

    I select the folder I know contains the 9 clips

    After a minute or so of Resolve looking, I get the same message again.

    So I click no (as in do not look in anther folder for the clips)

    Then anther window appears with a list of the offline clips. The top line says Start importing/.….
    Each line says
    The clip “” failed to link because the media file “xdcam” is missing or has the wrong timecode extents.

    So I make sure the project matches the TC, but still get same era

    Sorry so long and not that clear, I appreciate any help

    Why the double post? This is a wrong forum for this question

    We had the same problem. Ended up having Resolve cut the master file with scene detection.

    is there a noticeable degradation in quality when having to import the master file?

    did you ever get an answer to this? I’m having the same problem.

    Is resolve looking for the premiere renamed clips?

    No I did not get a solution. That was a while ago and I can’t remember exactly what happened.

    I really liked the way Resolved worked, but gave up on the way it imported my sequence.

    I like the way SpeedGrade works with PP CC (Direct Link) and now us it everyday .
    The sequence roundtrips perfectly keeping it in tac. The SG grading comes in as a filter for each clip in PP CC sequence. So you can save them as presets, and paste them into other clips. But if you want to make adjustments you have to go back into SG.

    I am watching to see how Resolve’s NLE system will work

    But now PP CC to SG and back is working just fine

    Thanks for the fast response. I’m feeling the same way about Resolve at the moment. I love the power of the tracker and correctorss, but I can’t make it work because my xml timeline won’t import the clips.
    I just started getting the hang of Resolve, too. Oh well, I hope SpeedGrade is comparable in terms of power windows, but I doubt it.] will be.
