DRP file format description (or else?)

PostThu Dec 07, 2017 9:07 pm


I'm developping an application to catalog clips, and I'd like to export a selection of clips to Resolve to make the editing.
All I need is to have a simple project with a default bin containing a selection of videos, and eventually a single timeline with clips dropped one next to another.
Is there a description/documentation/specifiation of .drp files used in Davinci Resolve so that I can generate one from scratch ? I googled it but found nothing.
Is there another format that I could/should use ? AAF, FCPXML ... ?

Hi, we don't provide documentation for our .drp and much of the detail is hidden.

That said, it sounds like you can generate an XML that we import on our edit page that would populate the media pool and the timeline. You can review the XML from other editors as well as Resolves export to see the XML formats we support. There are a few.
