Resolve (Lite) to transcode DPX

Challenge: Batch transcoding DPX sequences to a more friendly container
Solution: Resolve Lite!

I while back I needed to convert DPX renders from a Smoke machine to Prores 444 (to cut back into FCP7). I tried Compressor, the AJA tool, but nothing worked. Finally I strung out all the DPX files into a master timeline in Resolve Lite and rendered them all out. I then batch renamed all the render files using Automator to remove Resolve’s naming convention and I was all set.

    Were you able to go back to the DXP form your renders?

      As long as reel names were enabled in Resolve and you rendered out as “individual source clips” as opposed to “single clip”, the original TC & reelnames of all the clips should be maintained, allowing for seamless relinking.
