Really loving all these new courses. The price of membership is such good value compared to other sites and in most cases the content is better. I have learnt so much from this course.

Thanks you for bringing these comprehensive and high quality series of Resolve 16 video tutorial as well as the previous series.

I have noticed that when the final exported file played back from Kevin’s desktop, -lesson L27: Exporting- it suffers from the same gamma shift syndrome that has been around for years in Resolve and other NLEs.  It’s about when the exported files look low contrast and desaturated compared to Resolve Viewer or the external video reference. This is regardless if the displays are matching the calibration to specific color space output of Resolve or not, or if Resolve Video Range in the Delivery page and/or other pages is set to Auto, Video or Full range.

 It would be helpful if a Lowepost could make a video tutorial addressing the possible cause and workaround on this repeated issue. 

Thanks once again for the excellent series.

About dealing with 5.1 audio.  What if I need to create a file with the 5.1 mix   AND the stereo mix?  This would require 8 tracks in total.

Hi all,

I got a problem with a Multicam.
1.    How can I create multiple Multicam clips (synced via Timecode)?
       Do I really have to pick the corresponding pairs (I'm on two cameras here)?
2. I also have external audio with 5 audio tracks, which are reduced to a single stereo track when I sync them to the A-Cam and then create a      multicam clip. Am I missing something here? I really hope so!

Did you see the new multicam course? It goes deep into most aspects of multicam.

Hey Abby,

my question was a little misleading. I'm aware how to create multicam clips. I wanted to know if there is same kind of batch function, because I have a feature project shot with zwo cameras, so there are a lot of takes and scenes.
And if I'd have to pick the corresponding clips for each take, it'll take ages. 

I think the multicam course is quite fresh online, isn't it? I will for sure have a look.

And it's me again.
Kevin, in the first CutPage lesson you dragndrop a music into the media pool and its already lowered in gain.  How did you do that?
In an external programm, or is there an audio-import setting where the audio gain is lowered automatically?
