Premiere XML Image position not correct

PostTue Apr 26, 2016 1:53 am

So I have noticed when round tripping my project to DVR from premiere for color that the position x and y if modified is not what they should be set to. They are always and consistently half of what they should be. Example - In premiere I move my image on the x axis +10 and the y axis -20. When I export an xml and bring it into DVR and go to the edit sizing it would say that the x axis is +5 and the y axis is -10. Knowing that it is consistently half of what it should be makes this more of just a headache and not a deal breaker, but would love to get it fixed regardless. I first noticed this issue a few projects back using DVR 12 and tried out the 12.5 beta and it is still there. Scaling is not an issue either. It will stay the same size that I set it to in premiere.

I hope this is something that Black Magic will be able to fix and hope it isn't something that premiere is writing incorrectly to the XML.

The position numbering in Premiere is based on centre of canvas being X=960,Y=540. In Resolve it is X=0, Y=0. This is why the difference. The actual screen position is correct.
Resolve 16.0
Mac OSX 10.13.6
