Color grading on remote

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Can you recommend a software only solution for a color grading session with the director? I know it's not how it should be done, but the director can't be at the session and asks to follow on his MacBook so I need to find a solution for that.

Could the client download Resolve and y'all use the built in remote grading?

Unfortunately I can't have him download Resolve but Livestream looks interesting. Have you tried it?

I used it 6 years ago with a Baselight. I thought it was great, and only a 1 sec delay at the very most. I haven't tested it recently, though.

If it doesn't need to be Resolve, you can use SCRATCH... it has a native live streaming option
(and is free of charge until end of October right now).

You can either let it stream to you a (private) Youtube live channel, or Vimeo, or Wowza, or your own rtmp server if you happen to have one.
Youtube has about 2-3 seconds delay, if you have a decent bandwidth and set the stream on Youtube to "Ultra Low Latency".

I've seen custom setups with delays less than 1sec going halfway around the globe.

Hi Emily,

I've been using Discord on grading sessions with a DP and I'm getting about 3 frames delay. Works great. It's a bit of a setup hassle at first though.
