  1. As soon as you click the Update LUTs button, the Resolve LUT menus are updated. DCTLs are text files, so you could cut and paste the DCTL text on the GitHub page into a new file using a program such as Windows Notepad. Just make sure the extension is .dctl when you save out.
  2. One option is to move all the clips into a single camera color space and use that camera color space for the timeline color space. For example, use DCTL to transform one camera color space to another. Another option would be to work in RCM Extra Wide Gamut, which has a larger gamut then any particular camera color space.
  3. Thanks. I'm actually recording a new version of this course, which should be available sometime in the relative near future. There will be additional information on mixing SDR with HDR and tone mapping.
  4. The button seems to be dead. I will let the website manager know.
  5. That depends on the shot, but for a 2D extension you would probably need to create a larger domain for the extended set with a tool like Crop, motion track the extension art with the Tracker, and then re-crop the final result to the final render size.
  6. My node network directionality is an ingrained habit built over many years. I will keep the suggestion in mind for the next course, or at least mention it as a common approach.
  7. Thanks for your input. I'll admit I can be unorthodox in my technique and a little obtuse with my explanations, but I firmly believe there are multiple approaches to every VFX problem. I would encourage all VFX artists to stay flexible, seek out information from multiple sources, and follow the standards set by the particular studio, project, or supervisor you working for.
  8. The Mocha planar tracker is extremely good and generally outperforms transform or corner pin tracking in other programs. The new mesh tracker is cool, but it does not work in all situations. For example, significant changes in lighting or deformations on a surface with little color variation can prevent it from working.
  9. Looks like an error you'll get when you choose New Database with the Create option. Make sure you use the Connect option and that you choose the directory by clicking next to Location.
  10. Good suggestion. I did want to demonstrate mesh importation, but there is a lot you can do with primitives.
  11. That, I do not know as I spend little time in the Edit tab. I'm afraid I would have to spend some time trying to figure that out myself...
  12. Lesson 5 shows how to combine the stereo images to make a top/bottom or side-by-side combination, which you can then pass through a single MediaOut tool (useful for VR applications). If you need to render the left and right separately, then, yes, you would have to render them individually or pass them through two MediaOuts (you can have more than one).
  13. Theoretically, it should be the same exact process for any supported format. Sounds like it's having trouble reading your files. Can you test some other footage - other QuickTimes? I use a PC to run Resolve, so I'm not sure if there are any Mac issues.
