AVID – How To Export an .aaf and QuickTime export to Davinci Resolve After Relinking to 2K or 4K Native files
This workflow is created to explain how to link back to your camera originals and then convert the files to DNxHD 175X or DNxHR full res files.
If you are already editing in DNxHD 175 or higher then you don't need to relink to camera originals.
You will create a QuickTime and then go to the Exporting to AAF step in the middle of this wiki document.
Change from this
Relink to the volume that the raw .r3d or other .movs or uncompressed native files are on. Go to >Tools>Source Browser
Locate the original Native Pro Res .movs QuickTimes
Use the settings "Bins Based on Current AMA Setting"
When ready to online reconnect to the native camera files.
Right click the sequence to relink and choose Relink
Use the standard relinking options after the AMA media has been mounted
If that doesn't work choose
Change the timeline Clip Color to show AMA clips as a different color so you can make sure you are linked to the "Native" ProRes .mov QuickTimes
Notice in this timeline only part of the clips turned purple. You should have the entire timeline show purple clips so that you know all the clips are relinked.
On AVID timeline, you can -Match Frame>Find Bin>Reveal File to double check the files are relinking back to the original camera native files
Next go to >File>Output>Export to File>
Export as .aaf
Choose where to save the .aaf and title it keeping the .aaf extension. Don't worry what the Export Settings Drop down states. We set the "Options" correctly
The export when finished will look like this
Deliver this folder and the DNxHD quicktime to the colorist or if you are color grading your own project import the .aaf into resolve.
