    Mac + NLE

    I just got access to a laptop with the following specs, is that good enough to run Avid and Premiere? 3,1 GHz 512 GB, 4 GB VRAM (2017)
  2. Hi Nicolas. You would be better off asking these questions in the DaVinci Resolve forum. Some tasks can't be automated and you need some information such as reel names, timecodes etc to have the system switch the correct clips for you. In a professional workflow the conform artist would be involved early in the process and generate the necessary metadata prior to the editing so that the clips can be switched without any issues.
  3. Only vectorized graphics (AI/EPS etc) has unlimited scaling possibilities without compromising quality. If you apply a rasterized graphic element from let's say Photoshop at 100% scale it will look pixelated when it's scaled above its full resolution. That is typically an issue if you apply it at 100% scale on a 1920x1080 timeline and then re-adjust its scale on a new 4k timeline.
  4. Hopefully the light stays consistent throughout the spot. I would start with contrast and exposure and add dynamics to keep it consistent. Then do a color pass on top of that. By using offset controls you adjust the whole picture and doesn't have to think about that it might break into some strange color behaviour when going between rooms or in and out of different lighting conditions.
  5. We set up Scratch because it's significant faster than Resolve when it còmes to setting up workflows and transcode footage. Looking forward to watch this course!
  6. Have anyone tried the grain in FilmConvert? Just as good as Cinegrain?
  7. Can someone please walk me through the process of creating a camera LUT inside of DaVinci Resolve? Can the most common high-end cameras such as RED/ALEXA read Cube files? Anything I should think about when creating a LUT for this purpose?
  8. DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio beta 6 and Fusion 16 Studio beta 6 are now available on our support web site. is a no charge update for all DaVinci Resolve Studio and Fusion Studio customers.For users moving from v15, please back up your database, make drp's of your active projects and restore the DB in preparation for the version upgrade as you can not go back to v15 with a v16 DB.

  9. I have watched a couple of the seminars with Dado and I just want to state my opinion on them. They are pure sale hallelujah meetings for a plug in this guy has made and I feel a bit angry that I have scheduled time to look at this nonsense. People in the chat asks questions about how to do this and that and you never get a qualified answer, it's more in the line of 'its not possible to get a great result with the built in color management system in Resolve, you need to get my plug-in'. Dado, if you see this: A big shame on you!
  10. Second that. Good to see training by someone who knows the in-and-outs of the other color tools.
