I have been endlessly looking on how to import audio into DaVinico Resolve 12.
Each time I try to drag my audio clip over to Davinci it won't work.
Does anyone know how to get this to work?
Thank You.

If you don't have it, the Resolve 12 Reference Manual is HERE!!
DaVinci Resolve 12 is compatible with WAVE, Broadcast WAVE, AIFF, MP3, AAC(M4A)[like DJI template audio], and CAF (CAF is only compatible on OS/X) audio formats at sampling rates including 32,44.1,48,88.2, 96, and 192 kHz.

The problem you will run into is computer resources. Our large 4K clips from the DJI platforms will eat up all of your RAM and when you add the audio clip, it will appear not to work because your are out of resources, CPU, RAM, or disk IOPS. Resolve will be paging in the background, but the performance will be unsatisfactory without a VERY beefy machine (or work on very short/small clips)... As an example, on a dual processor, quad core with 48GB or RAM, and an AMD R9 390 GPU card with 8GB of RAM, Resolve moves slowly through the clips and plays a DJI m4a audio file with skips.... But it renders beautifully!!!!

Resolve will not work with MP3.

Best choice as listed above is to use WAV, from memory 16 bit 48khtz

There a lots of programs that can convert your mp3 to WAV, like iTunes for example, or see if you can get a good quality WAV recording to start with.

For highly compressed formats, the CPU is most important, and for low compression formats the GPU is the most important. Having enough RAM is important, but adding more RAM if your RAM isn't a limiting factor already, won't help at all.

Thanks Riley!!! The Lite version does NOT support MP3.
I didn't know that, but it does support .aif, .wav, .mp4, .m4a. Just verified with Resolve 12 Lite version 12.0.1.006
