Summary: The easy workaround to get DaVinci Resolve work with Canon EOS 70D MOV footage is to encode MOV to Avid DNxHD codec MOV format which is a suitable editing format for DaVinci Resolve.
DaVinci Resolve was the first scalable color grading system offering multiple levels of acceleration, features and capabilities, providing colorists with exacting and intuitive color control over static or moving objects. Powered at launch by da Vinci's proprietary hardware cards, known as PowerPlant cards, Resolve delivered real time HD and up to 4K resolution non-linear color grading. Resolve scaled lower-resolution SD and DV formats to HD, 2K and 4K without compromising quality by using proprietary da Vinci engineered Transformer technology.
However, DaVinci is extremely picky on what codec it will accept as an XML from any non linear editing programs:
"I'm trying to figure out what is wrong when I import my short video footage clip taken with my Canon 70D off of the CF card into DaVinci Resolve. All the footage shows is black. My pictures I can import with no problem. I can import the footage clip into the Canon Image Browser EX with no problem for editing and plays. (Format is H.264) Any ideas would be appreciated."
