File Import SDK for DaVinci Resolve?

PostMon Apr 08, 2024 5:36 pm

Hi,

I have a new media file type I'd like to be able to import into DaVinci Resolve. I have written importers for Media Composer and Premiere using their SDKs. How can I do this for Resolve please? I have seen the SDKs that ship with Resolve (the Python Scripting looks very powerful & I used to code Lua in Fusion when it was a separate product, I have also coded OpenFX in the past), but try as I might I cannot find a way to code a new file importer?

I will be at NAB next week so I can pop into the dev support folks at the Blackmagic stand to discuss if that helps?

Cheers,

James.

Resolve has a public Export SDK but there isn't one for import. Unless you can convince them at the booth. ;)

As a follow up I talked to Daniel Koch this morning at NAB. He said there is already a way to support importing new file formats in Resolve, by making an OpenFX generator plugin, with zero inputs and one output, that opens a filepath.

I think that's Daniel? I suppose that would work for Fusion and for the Fusion page in Resolve, but I have a feeling it's not what people expect for Resolve. How would it work on the Media page for instance? Perhaps there's some magic already implemented for it.

I am so sorry - Daniel Koch, not David, please excuse me. I do not know Resolve well enough to comment, but if there are any other ways to offer a media import from a file (we actually are using HTTPS to stream the media over a WAN under the hood, the file we open contains the host URL and some other JSON), I would love to find them. Thanks.
