Cannot import video component

PostSat May 08, 2021 10:57 am

Hey Folks
These files play fine in Windows Media Palyer. But when I try to import in Resolve I only see the audio waveform. Why cant Resolve 17 read the video component of these files?

I think you will find that the Apple Intermediate Codec is not supported in Resolve. I couldn't find it in the supported codec list.

Dell XPS 8700 i7-4790 4 core, 24GB RAM, GTX1060/6GB (462.59 Studio), Win10 Home Build 19041, 2 Screens

If I recall correctly, AIC was FCP's capture option for some tape-based formats.

If that's so, maybe try a re-capture of the original tapes using Resolve?

It was always an Apple only codec and they dropped it when ProRes got a strong acceptance in the market.
Not much software out there reading it these days.
Don't approach Resolve with your expectations from other NLEs! They are all different.

Thank you all. This was the footage I experimented with on a Macbook some 5 years back for which I lost the originals. I converted it using handbrakes Prodution Max Preset for x264. Easy Peasy... The bitrate climbed down from 136mbps to 134 or whereabouts so good enough for me.
