Importing Media into Resolve

Overview

This guide goes over how to import your raw media into DaVinci Resolve.

Importing Media

In the Media tab, your hard drive will appear in the Media Storage window in the upper left column. Navigate to where your original files are stored, select them all, right click, and select “Add to Media Pool” (or simply click and drag).

DaVinci will show a dialogue box asking if you want to change your sequence settings to match. Click “Change” and wait for your clips to appear in the Media Pool below, in the Master bin.
