Many folks are facing the AVI importing issues with DaVinci Resolve, such as trying to add gameplay that was encoded into a .avi format, but it can’t be seen by DaVinci Resolve.

It's actually a very simple reason: AVI is obsolete and unsupported by most programs developed in the past five to ten years. In the professional realm (which Resolve sits in) it has been largely supplanted by MOV, and in some cases MXF files. It's also possible that your AVI file contains H.264, which is not supported in the vast majority of tools that can manipulate AVI files. To figure out what's in your file, use MediaInfo to extract a report.

Generally DaVinci Resolve can recognize a few file formats like QuickTime, DNxHD, ProRes, MXF files from cams. On this occasion, you need to transcode AVI to DaVinci Resolve preferred DNxHD or ProRes files and then transfer the converted AVI files to DaVinci Resolve for editing.
