Davinci Resolve 8.1.1 to Premiere CS5.5.2  import error

Nov 18, 2011 11:39 AM

Importing an XML from Resolve to Premiere gives me a "File import error"  "The importer reported a generic error."

 

 

The XML from Resolve opens correctly in FCP7, and exporting that Resolve XML from FCP as an XML version 5 from FCP7 is correctly opened in Premiere.  Can anyone else verify they are getting the same result?

 

thanks,

    Do you have any offline media in your Resolve session?

    Just needed someone else to have the same issue.  I recommend submitting a bug report.  And we can cross our fingers for them to get this right.  Good thing we have FCP7 for yet another work around........

    I haven't noticed any frame slipping. The only slipping I notice is in and out points change when I have a transition alignment on something other than center, but it doesn't affect the transition in and out so it's not that big a deal.

     

    My projects tend to be XDCAM EX 1920x1080 @ 24p. I render with 24 frame handles and I just started having issues when I have offline media. Specifically, I had some Illustrator files in Premiere and I kept them there because I wanted to keep the timing the same. Normally Resolve renders black frames for the offline media.

     

    At first I had a rendering problem when I had handles in Resolve. Then, once I got out of Resolve, Premiere would not import the XML.

     

    Funny thing is that I tried importing in CS5 and it worked!

     

    Odd...must be a CS5.5 thing. But I think in CS5 the sequence from Resolve made Premiere crash.

     

    I emailed Blackmagic and they said that it seems to be a problem with how Premiere handles slugs.

    Try and remove the offline file and see if that works?

     

    The thing is that I tried it on CS5.5.1 also and it didn't work for me either.

    You did do the resolve to FCP setting right?

     

    One thing you might try to do: In Resolve, unlock the tracks in the conform tab and delete the offline clips that way you won't miss any and then try the render again and export to Premiere.

     

    I recommend making a short sequence to test it out. Like about a 4 clip sequence with clips that will be offline in Resolve. Basically, something simliar to what you have already just smaller.

    On a side note that XML that I sent to FCP and back to Premiere seems to crash Premiere. Do you experience this?

    On the reconnect issue:

     

    Are you having problems connecting to the Resolve renders? Or does it connect to the render? I'm confused.

    I've never done it that way. I normally render, then export XML from

    The conform tab.

    I'm having this issue as well. Submitted a bug report. Hopefully Adobe will fix this problem and not introduce any new ones.

    Does your session in DaVinci have any offline media?

    No, resolve renders every clip perfectly. I just can't get Premiere Pro to open the XML. Sorry if my original response was a bit misleading given the prior discussion. I used FCP 7 as an intermediate and it worked but I really don't want to use another program just to translate the xml.

    But did you have anything in your DaVinci session out of the norm? When I had that problem, it was because premiere couldn't import the black slugs that DaVinci rendered out.

     

    Have you tried the Resolve 8.2 beta?

    Well, now I do too... There was a title I missed. It imports fine now . Thanks for the clarification. I've had various levels of roundtripping work in other versions of Premiere Pro but they all have had various problems. This looks to be the most complete (albeit a bit annoying). Thanks once again.

    Has anyone here tried the roundtrip with 8.2 beta? I was wondering if they fixed the issue or if it's still the same?
