Export incoming footage from Resolve, which Codec?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I'm really happy with my new Pocket Cinema camera. It's refreshing to see RAW and Prores footage. Hard to go back to my GH2 now, even with the smaller sensor size.

 

Anyway I was wondering to witch codec I should export footage in Resolve, to have FCPX treat my footage as RAW. I prefer to color it inside FCPX and FilmConvert plugin, bypassing Resolve as much as possible (even avoid roundtripping with proxy footage).

 

If I'm correct I should not use a regular code such as ProRes because it 'destroys' the RAW process. 

 

Thanks!!!

 

 

ps: I hope FCPX will support compressed DNGs in the December update.

You'll still be able to make adjustments to white balance, but you'll lose a bit of freedom. I suggest doing a rough color balance and exposure adjustment in Resolve (applying it to all similar clips using the appropriate button in the raw tab), and then exporting to ProRes. This way you get the best of both worlds.
