  1. Wow, This is all very interesting. Does anyone know of a way to manipulate frequencies like this in Resolve?
  2. Only a few of the pieces were cut from web exports - most were made from Prores deliverables. I'll see if a better encode helps.
  3. Thanks for the feedback Cary! Sadly, some of the footage was taken from the web exports of the final grades, as that is all that I had on hand... in terms of the bitrate, I was under the impression that Vimeo Restricted the bit rate to 10Mb/s so I jus exported with the standard Vimeo settings out of Resolve.
  4. I'm 23 years old and am always looking to learn! Any feedback/mentors welcome! In a small scene in Austin, any advice on growing out from a smallish industry much appreciated! Also cut this in Resolve too!
  5. Yes, but who will relight the scene when the DP messes up? 🤨
  6. I tried to start taking this, but you really need to define what "automated colour grading" means here. Are you talking AI? LUTS? LUT based plugins? This needs a lot more clarity before anyone will be able to give you any useful meaningful information.
  7. Found this video posted on Lift Gamma Gain that might be of interest:
  8. I'm looking to affect the image in the inverse way that resolves LUM vs SAT curve works, which adjusts saturation based on luminance. I want to adjust luminance based on saturation as a way of managing highly saturated color for a more "filmic" response. Yeah I'm definitely thinking there is a hue shift involved, but If I were to try to make this a global correction, I don't think the desirable hue rotation would be uniform across colors. It almost looks like Yedlin's filmic desat is just a drop in the luma only channel. I've seen this - Thanks for the reminder! I need to do some testing to see if it that effects saturated areas uniformly. It would be nice to have a tool to affect it with as much control as a curve.
  9. I'm looking for the best way to affect an image the way a Saturation vs. Luminance curve would work in Resolve in order to approximate the way film deals with high saturation. My initial though would be a qualifier, but I wan't something more scalable than a SAT only qualifier with the offset rolled down, not to mention the range and fall off of saturation in the qualifiers in resolve are really small and can't be fine tuned as well as with a curve. Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how they do something like this, or how you think this could be accomplished? Also wondering if anyone has any insight into the maths or transforms Yedlin is doing here to control saturation and how they might be accomplished? seems to me that its similar to a SAT v LUM curve to a degree, but I'm not sure. http://www.yedlin.net/140914.html
  10. What is the first step in these videos? Is it a logC to Rec 709 LUT or a specific print LUT? Looks like Resolve's Kodak print LUT, but just was curious!
  11. What is the peak luminance of the monitor? If it isn't an HDR reference monitor, and doesn't get up to at least 1000 nits, callibrating it to HDR specs would be useless because you wont be able to monitor the full range of the HDR image. If you are finishing for web or broadcast just stick to the standard Rec709 Calibration. I have had mixed results with generating monitor luts through Displaycal/Resolve. Just be weary.
  12. Whatsup folks, Since people are starting to look at Resolve as a serious cutting tool, I figured I'd share a link to a music video I directed and cut for a local band entirely in Resolve 15. Fusion was running too slow in the betas on my computer to be usable, so the greenscreen composite plates were made in after effects. Other than that, everything was done in Resolve 15 - including the actual compositing of the VFX. Anyone else got projects they've cut entirely in Resolve? Happy to answer any questions about the experience!
  13. In case anyone else was wondering, I found the solution. In the Davinci Resolve Panels application there is an option to upgrade firmware. I believe the most up to date is 1.2.1. As far as I know the only added functionality is the sleep mode... kinda disappointing.
  14. According to the manual it appears to be. Haven't gotten a chance to try it myself yet. I would imagine so, because if Adobe can figure it out Blackmagic definitely can.
