    importing DNG files

    Avid not recognising .DNG files (Black Magic Cinema Camera). MC 2018.11. Is there a known workaround folks? Will I need to make proxy files off system?

    Re: importing DNG files

    I think that you need Resolve to make the proxies unfortunately.

    There may be a 3rd party plugin for linking to those but i can't be certain.

    I know BM have moved away from DNG on their newer cameras as its was difficult to implement on edit systems.

    You should have a free copy of resolve with your camera right?

    Even the free one will probably work though.

    Just have a thought about making low-res or high-res mezzanines though. If yuo're happy to conform in Resolve then loe-res is fine but for max flexability you could make high quality versions to provide more options althout you'll need to consider storage of those and also possible bit depth loss.

    Re: importing DNG files

    Thank you, that is helpful. I've got resolve on a smaller power computer - I'll give it a try.

    Dan is right.

    Use davince resolve free to transcode to mxf op-atom dnx files or i think  Mediareactor AMA plugin from Drastic can link those files in Avid.
