    And Blackmagic’s Resolve as it has a free version and is cross platform. It is also an industry standard for finishing work like color grading. Don’t get sucked into subscription software unless it pays for itself.

  • There are a few codecs not supported in the free but in fact the free version supports lots of codecs. You can find a list on the Blackmagic Design Web site in the support pages. mp4 wrapper usually implies H264 codec and that is supported in all versions. jpg, png are supported but sometimes Tiffs don’t display but if it is showing the clip in the media pool then it should display on the free version. If you tell us what the codec is that isn’t displaying that might help. The other issue is whether your computer meets minimum specification and the operating system is up to date enough for 18.5. Resolve expects a minimum specification for GPU, RAM etc

    Proxy files must have the same file name and timecode. There are many ways to do proxy workflows which work effortlessly to relink. Given you have broken the naming, I can suggest you rename a copy of your original files to add the “p”. Software like Advanced Renamer for Windows will allow you to batch change hundreds of files to add the extra to the name. Obviously you should have at least two backups of you camera originals so do it to one of the copies only to see if this fixes the issue

    Well you grab the fade handle at the top and take it back to the clip start.

    The ‘skew line’ indicates and audio fade, made by grabbing the fade handle. You need to recognise the different icons for different functions within a clip. It’s all in the manual.

  • Do you have the free version or the Studio version? The free version
    cannot import 10 bit HEVC codecs. It’s also a problem with Sony cameras
    that shoot 10bit HEVC. Instead of buying codecs that Resolve doesn’t see just buy the Studio version. The latest features like AI transcoding/ subtitling and Magic Masks makes the Studio version a smart buy

  • I’ve successfully had stills moves from FCPX translate into Resolve. There are so many variables however that my success may have been lucky. Versions of FCPX, the fcpxml version and the version of Resolve matter for compatibility. In my case I think the editor used a stills tool that triggered the same move using dynamic zoom in Resolve as it activated dynamic zoom and the start and end framing was correct so maybe that way doesn’t rely on keyframes. Obviously proprietary third party plugins doing Ken Burns effect will not translate.

    XML from Pr does include keyframes although the way Pr scales often makes those moves relatively correct but the frame sizing needs to be tweaked on the Color page.

    In Resolve the only box to tick during a timeline import is “Use sizing information”. If that was ticked and keyframes are not importing then it is a matter of the source software and what the xml contains that can be correctly interpreted.

    With Streamdeck the macro actually types one character per action. I do not think there is any functionality to play for a prescribed time, just locating via jumping.

    I just found you can assign a keystroke to increment timecode which grabs the current timeline timecode with a + value. Using Streamdeck I was able to program this keystroke and then type in a numeric value then enter to enable the timeline jump and then a further keystroke can be added like split. But you need Elgato Streamdeck which is a multi button controller and software to enable programable keys and macros (multi actions in their parlance)

    You need a macro which you can edit. I suggest something might be possible using Streamdeck. The macro will be tricky as it will need to select current time, add a numeric value, jump, split. You will need to check in keyboard shortcuts if there is a command to select the current timeline value which you might need to assign a key to. The other thing with macros is you might need to build in delays between the string of keystrokes to allow time for the location commands to be done before triggering a split.
