XML Relink to Red Source Files
I’m fairly new to DaVinci and have a problem regarding our Premiere Project, which was edited with Premiere Pro. Since we were shooting in 6K R3D Footage, we rendered out proxies. In the interest of time we let the camera do the most work and used those proxies, whenever it functioned.
The problem ist, that the naming convention of the Red Weapon is for Raw Footage “A001_C001_ABCDEF_001.R3D” and for the proxies “A001_C001_ABCDEF_V001_001.mxf”. So since the Filename isn’t completly identical, I can’t relink the Raw Files. Premiere doesn’t handle the Red Files this well and crashes, when I try to relink with media start. In RedCine everything works fine, since it doesn’t recognize the DNxHD, but can’t create funcional Shallows. (XML and EDL are broken).
So I want to use Resolve, where I imported my RawFiles and try to import an XML or AAF, but can’t figure out how to link those Files. What I need to do is to limit my search parameters for the first 16 characters and everything would be great.
Is there any solution or did somebody already found a workaround? I’m happy for any kind of help.
