    EDL from Resolve dailies

    My dailies are created in Resolve. I can see the correct metadata is in the master clip for a sound conform, Soundroll and Soundfile. But I can't get that information in an EDL. I've tried every format, and best I can do is show the Soundroll. 

    Anyone doing dailies with Resolve that can solve this problem for me?

    Thanks.

    Re: EDL from Resolve dailies

    Resolve will export ALE files (Avid Log Exchange) which you can import into Avid.

    These may have the extra metadata you need.

    Thanks for the response. The correct metadata is already in the master clip, including soundfile and soundroll. But the problem is exporting an EDL with that information. Avid only sees the Sourcefile as the video clip file name, not the soundfile name. 

    I'm looking for a way to output an EDL that has soundfile and soundroll information that a sound post company can use to auto-assemble the show.

    Re: EDL from Resolve dailies

    Understood, but why do they need an EDL?

    Wouldn't an AAF be the modern way to do it? I don't know anyone who's used EDLs for sound mixing for years. It used to be that we would send them OMFs from Avid, but I can't remember if that allowed for soundfile/roll info options in the export settings.

    There used to be a number of EDL processing tools 20 years ago, but I don't think there's any of them still around.

    The only EDL tool I know of is a free one from Videotoolshed. It has some features of the old tools I used to use.

    Since the EDL is simply a text readable file, I'm thinking you could possibly do a search-and-replace, so that the Source File name and the Tape/roll numbers would be replaced with the sound info.

    Im not in front of my avid-but can you put the Sound fie name into the labroll column? Then you get the edl to reference labroll & create your edl.

    Re: EDL from Resolve dailies

    Thanks for the responses. 

    The answer will have to be re-sync the dailies in Media Composer. That is the only way I am finding (as are others) to get the metadata into the EDL's properly. And yes, we still use EDL's to turn over TV shows to sound. Apparently on the last show my post producer did where the dailies were done in Resolve, the sound house could re-assemble the timeline. But he said it was a complicated and difficult work around.

    The problem with an AAF is it only represents the audio that is in Media Composer, and has no reference to the sound original BWAV files. And the sound originals is where you get the multitracks from set to clean up the dialogue.
