DaVinci Resolve is a powerful professional non-linear editing program with which users can edit and grade the video in real time. DaVinci Resolve can import many video formats for editing including the video file directly from the cameras. The video files with the file extensions that DaVinci Resolve support include: ARI, MTS, MXF, AVI, CIN, DNG, DPX, RMF, CDX, DCP, MP4, MOV, EXR, TIFF, VRW R3D, JPG, J2C, etc, but which does not mean every video format on the above supporting list can be imported into DaVinci Resolve successfully. The video codecs in the supporting video format also decide whether the video file can be edited successfully or not, like MOV. So sometimes you may encounter the following MOV Davinci Resolve not importing issue: 

Q 1: “Hi guys, Need some help. 

After a multitude of terrible issues regarding Premiere XML, I have decided to simply use scene detection to grade a feature film. However, Resolve seems to not even recognize the file whatsoever. 

This is a .mov file, 117 GB. Codec is Apple ProRest 422 (HQ), AAC, Timecode. 

Anyone have any issues with this? We are trying to make TIFF and in a serious pickle.” 

Q 2: “I’m using DaVinci Resolve Lite 9.1.1. When importing .mov files (shot with Canon 5D Mark III), I get 2 same second-to-last frames but no last frame at the end. Anyone have any issues with this? How can I load .mov files to Resolve without issue?” 

If your MOV files are not accepted by your Resolve, it’s probably because of the video or audio codec incompatibility. On this occasion, you need to transcode MOV to DaVinci Resolve preferred formats and codecs like DNxHD or ProRes files and then transfer the converted MOV files to DaVinci Resolve for editing.
