You have done this workflow in this wiki but footage doesn't link in AVID

Davinci Resolve Export .aaf to AVID - Color Correction Round Trip opening Color Corrected Files into AVID Workflow

This way will fix the issue but assigning a common tape name to the footage in AVID so it will re-link

You have put the .mxf exports from Resolve into the appropriate AVID MediaFiles folder

You have imported the .aaf but footage doesn't relink

The fix is to assign the footage and the imported clips in the timeline the same tape name

Here is how

Go to >Tools>Media Tool

Choose your project and the drive the .mxf footage is on

Footage appears in the Media Tool

You can sort by creation date so you can see the recently exported footage easier

Make a new bin and copy the recently created Master Clip files from the media tool into a

new bin

Here is an example of the Footage in the new bin that you just exported from Resolve
Select all clips in the bin that should be relinked to timeline
Go to >Clip>Modify>Modify Clip

Choose Set Timecode pulldown and choose

>Set Source

Select New

Create a tape name (123456789) or whatever

Click OK

OK
OK
OK

Now we need to modify the Master clips that were created when the .aaf was imported

When you imported the .aaf AVID by default makes a bunch of master clips in the bin that

you imported the .aaf into

Here is an example bin

Notice the tape name matches the source file name by default

Select all the clips but not the sequence that the .aaf made


Go to >Clip>Modify>Modify Clip

Choose Set Timecode pulldown and choose

>Set Source

Select the SAME tape name you created in this wiki earlier to modify the clips


Click OK

OK
OK
OK

Next Select all the clips in the bin that we copied over into the new bin from the Media Tool


These are the clips that exported from Davinci Resolve

Right click the sequence to relink and choose Relink


Choose Selected Items in All open bins

Choose to relink by Tape Name or Source file Name

If that doesn't work choose





Choose to relink by Tape Name or Source file ID

The sequence will re-link to the Resolve Media
