From your test, its clear you will need the Studio version for some files to be decoded.

Thanks Peter.

I understand supporting all variants is challenging but it's harder to understand why previously supported 8-bit MXF/QT container variants in earlier free versions of Resolve would not be supported in Resolve 15 free.

It's some consolation that the test file I sent Dwaine works in Resolve 15 Studio but I can't justify buying Studio when it will be included in the new BMPC 4K I pre-ordered. Until then (hopefully Fall as stated at NAB), I'm back to FCP which natively supports the JVC LS-300 without conversion to MXF.

Guessing it's too much to ask for native support for the LS-300 for the same reasons you mentioned :)

I have the same problem with consumer camera files, such as UHD 24fps footage from a Sony RX10 MkIII and a DJI Phantom 4 Pro 2.0 drone. Both files are 8-bit. All the consumer media I've tried to load shows as "offline".

No problems with 10-bit XAVC and Prores from my Sony FS7's and Shogun Inferno recorders.

Seems that DaVinci only supports Hollywood movie studio formats.

Even in high-end formats, for at least twenty years I've seen camera manufacturers shelling out new formats faster than NLEs can implement them. Sony, Canon and Panasonic are trying hard to develop something new, different and consequently incompatible. Drone makers are even worse.

Somebody remember how long it took Avid to implement some widely used camera formats?

Can't say for sure without a sample. Will likely need the Resolve 15 Studio version though.

Thanks for the replies. Unable to send a sample yet as my camera purchase is dependant on compatibility with the software!

Any insight appreciated.

I cannot send a sample as I am deciding which model to buy. I prefer the XC15 but am concerned I will have issues with the MXF format. Are you saying that the full orice Resolve 15 software will definitely be compatible with these files or is it still not confirmed?

Many thanks

I guess I have the same problem. I cannot see my MXF files, slow-motion 60 fps, filmed with SONY PXW-Z90V. I used to see these files with Davinci resolve but now as I started a new project and placed files to timeline I can see only Media offline. I can hear the sounds from those files but not any images. I tried to relink files, I downloaded the files to computers SSD and restarted computer and Davinci..

I am a new user for this program so I have no Idea what has happened or how..
I am using quite new Mac book pro and been trying different timeline settings aswell..

Can somebody help me? Thank you already!

It means that unless someone reading the thread has an XC15 and can provide a sample clip to test, that we can't answer the question definitively.

I've been following this thread for a bit since I have an XC-15 and have been stuck using Davinci 14 since I can not get v.15 to work with any of the files from my camera.

[I tried posting a link, but since I'm a newbie, the forum is not letting me]

It would be great to hear from the Davinci experts to hear what they say.

Hi Ken. This is an XC-15 clip? I just want to make sure I label it properly for my sample collection.

This clip works on Resolve 15.2.3 Studio for Windows.

This clip does not work on Resolve 15.2.3 for Windows (the free version). Decodes the audio but not the video.

I assume you are using the free version of Resolve 14.3.1?

Thanks, Dwaine!

Yes, this is from a Canon XC-15. I can get the firmware version when I get home.

I am using the free Windows version of DV 14 since the free version of DV 15 has not been working for me and the only work around I have is to use version 14.

Is that the paid or unpaid version of Davinci 15?

In the Playback menu, uncheck "Use Optimized Media if Available" and set Render Cache to None, to see if you have an issue with optimized media and/or cache files.

Also update to Resolve 12.5.4.
