    Color Management Workflow in DaVinci Resolve

    I have been using DaVinci Resolve for more than a decade but these workflows are completely new to me as I have only been working display referred. I think you have managed to make this rather complex topic very easy to understand. Looking forward to dive into both RCM and ACES.

    More Grading tutorials

    I agree that they could produce more "what button to push" tutorials as the bleach bypass and the spotify videos. That said, I have developed my skills and become a much better colorists by studying the color grading cases and the insights such as the one about printer points. By reading about the different techniques, node structures, workflows and the thoughts behind decisions etc from the best colorists in the world is so much more valuable for me than anything that I have watched on the other sites.

    stabalize time/hyperlapses

    Stabilization in Fusion is demonstrated in several lessons on Lowepost. I remember that the building replacement course has it covered very well.

    Introduction to visual effects in DaVinci Resolve Fusion

    This is by far the best Davinci Resolve course I have seen. With limited knowledge I was able to follow and the techniques shown are very useful to me as I have started to do more and more finishing in Resolve. Thank you Lee!

    Freeze frame clip in Fusion

    Do you know how to freeze frame a clip in Fusion? I have one MediaIn clip that I want to freeze to composite on top of the main MediaIn background clip.

    Hi. Do you know if it is possible to decompose a Fusion clip in Davinci Resolve?

    The difference between DNxHR and ProRes codecs

    Adobe has discontinued MOV for h264 files, and only allow h264 codecs in MP4 containers. Probably because the most known players doesn't always recognize the file as legal and fail to remap it to full range, resulting in lifted blacks and washed out images. I have experienced the same flagging issues with DNxHD inside of MOV and I would go for MXF too.

    Printer Lights

    Not sure about this, but I think she ment 'keep to 1/4 trims in RGB highlights, MIDTONES and shadows' Correct me if someone is more familiar to the Mistika toolset and think otherwise.

    The difference between DNxHR and ProRes codecs

    Read the new printer point article here at Lowepost to understand how to use them in your color corrector. By trims she means small adjustments as you can make micro adjustments instead of full printer points. By consistency she probably means that printer points are numbered so that you can easily communicate how many points are adjusted with the rest of the team. Then they can apply the same amount of points on the other images to keep consistency.

    Printer Lights

    I find this article above excellent, and I have never seen a more in-depth and correct presentation of the use of printer points. The techniques explained here is best practice in the high-end facilites and I like the fact that it a long way contradicts the way I have seen printer points being demonstrated in other learning resources online where the corrections and balancing are done without being watched through a curve. Controlling the separate tonal ranges with printer lights would work against what the tool is designed for and the point of creating a clean and cinematic image that preserves the lightning on set.

    The difference between DNxHR and ProRes codecs

    Good write, it seems like DNxHR is definitely taking over the codec throne. Some seem to use the Cineform codec, any reason for that?

    Gamma curve enquiry

    You are talking about contrast management, and it's perfectly doable to create a bold (and soft) contrast without going underexposed. It requires a combination of primary tools and some experience.
