Avid to Resolve conform issue

Recommended Posts

I have this strange audio conform issue when going from Avid to Resolve with an AAF. Resolve reads in the wrong audio clip.
The audio on the Resolve timeline gets this ".new" extention behind each clip name, but the ".new" is not there in Avid and it's not there if I click "find clip in media tool" in Resolve.  The way I bring the AAF in is by first loading the footage and then linking to the source while importing. The same happens if I choose not to link. Any suggestions very much appreciated.

When you export the AAF, are you choosing to consolidate the media?

This is where I've seen Avid adding the '.new' extension to the clip name, as it's effectively creating a new clip.

I haven't tried exporting an audio AAF to Resolve - just picture AAFs, but if I have all my original audio rushes available to Resolve, I would think to just export the AAF without any consolidating or embedding of media (as you might do if sending to Protools). 

In fact, I don't think Resolve can accept AAFs with embedded media.
