How to encode BPAV MP4 files for DaVinci Resolve editing?

Here is my experience with load BPAV MP4 to DaVinci Resolve on Mac, if you also have the BPAV MP4 files to DaVinci Resolve importing issues, just follow this article to solve.

“Hi, there, somebody provided me a BPAV of a remote shoot, and to cut a long story short, the structure didn’t make the translation, and trying to download individual elements was becoming a nightmare. The biggest problem is DaVinci Resolve will not open the MP4 files from the BPAV folder. Is there any other way of rewrapping XDCAM EX BPAV .mp4 files to DaVinci Resolve supported .mov similarly to the way XDCAM Transfer does, but without needing the folder structure?”

To be able to work with BPAV files in DaVinci Resolve smoothly, you should not change the name of the BPAV folder and you should never change any of its contents–doing either will lead to all kinds of problems.

When the transfer is not working, you need a BPAV transfer tool to convert XDCAM clips from BPAV to ProRES MOV or DNxHD MOV for DaVinci Resolve. What is really important is to never alter the contents of a BPAV folder in any way as you back it up to whatever machine to keep whole XDCAM Folder structure. The BPAV folder can be moved from your MacBook to the MacPro where you can then do your editing. To edit them in DaVinci Resolve, you can use professional XDCAM EX to convert BPAV folder directly to DNxHD MOV at once with UFUSoft HD Video Converter for Mac (review).
