Video PNG and GIF

PostThu Oct 12, 2017 1:23 pm

I am having issues with Video PNG Files that I download from Digital Juice and GIF files in Davinci. When I use Premiere Pro and Final Cut X they recognize the files and I can drag and drop the alpha animations on top of my footage no problem. But when I go into Davinci Resolve it can't even see the file...
will you guys update Resolve for it to read more file types?

I too am having this problem and would very much appreciate the ability to use Video PNG files with alpha mattes in Resolve. As of now I'm unable to import any of the old files I made in After Effects or have purchased from Digital Juice. :(

I'm on Windows 10 and am running the latest version of Resolve 15, 15.2.4.006.

What exactly are your video PNG files? Numbered sequences or are they in some sort of container?

I assume they're QuickTime PNG. Many apps lost the ability to read them when they stopped using the QuickTime framework and implemented specific support for individual codecs instead.

You can convert those files with ffmpeg or Adobe Media Encoder.

Now that Adobe is encoding to ProRes 4444, I'd recommend using that for transferring alpha. DNxHR can also contain alpha.
