workflow to import XML full of .MTS clips into resolve
by Mathew Farrell 5 months ago
Hi folks I'm trying to import a premiere pro project into resolve 12.5. Simple enough normally, except this project is made up of .MTS (AVCHD) files, so Resolve throws a wobbly and can't handle them.

Hardware Is Sexy, But It's Software That Matters

Re: Hardware Is Sexy, But It's Software That Matters
by Michael Gissing 5 months ago
Personally the OS is far less important than the software I am using. So for me the priorities are software, hardware and then OS. Once Resolve is open the OS has almost no significance. By choosing W
