Title the project – click Create

Double click the project to load it

Set your Video I/O 
Go to DaVinci Resolve>Preferences

Choose the Video I/O and GPU Choose Intensity Shuttle Thunderbolt

Or Choose Intensity Extreme depending what suite or lab you are using

Change the Control Panels to the Tangent Devices Wave or AVID Artist Color if one is connected

Click Save to apply changes

Unfortunately you have to restart Davinci to load the preferences.

Quit the program and choose to save then reopen using the steps above.

Set up some Project Settings. Click on the Project Settings Icon in the lower right corner of the screen

Master Project Settings generally will want your timeline resolution at 1920 x 1080 but if you have 2K footage and want to scale up then choose 2048 x 1080 or 2048 x 1024

4K Red files are 4480 x 1920 but check the raw .r3d file

Choose either the DaVinci YRGB or the DaVinci ACES color science. For Red Footage you may see more detail in ACES.

Click "Save" to apply the settings

Close the Preferences window

Click on the "Edit" tab at the bottom of the screen on the "navigation" bar

>File>Import AAF, EDL, XML

Select the .xml to import

Keep the default settings if you would like to guide Resolve to the files to bring into the media pool.

See later in this document for adding media prior to importing into Resolve.

In our Project it found all the clips but it gave us this error.

Just hit No

These were the errors we got in our test but it's usually a title or something not needed > See this Title It's offline and that is okay.

Second option is to add the media to the resolve project first and then import the .xml

Load your media into the media pool>
Navigate to the folder containing the media and select Add Folder to Media Pool

>File>Import AAF, EDL, XML

Select the .xml to import

If you already added your files to the Media Pool then choose to deselect
Automatically set project settings and
Automatically import source clips into media pool

Hopefully you will link all the media with out a problem if you have difficulty talk to a proctor and have them

Call help desk or come to CMA 3.104
