Jonnie Sirotek replied to Lowepost's topic in AnnouncementsDoes anyone else get blocked by your browser when trying to visit ravengrade? I keep getting kicked back for security. Wondering if it's just me or my firewall settings. Wanted to poke around on the site and learn a little more about it.
Handle client micro managing versions
Jonnie Sirotek replied to Orash Rahnema's topic in Editing , Color grading & FinishingAh yes, I think we can all empathize with that. In Resolve, you can very quickly add a new version (Color -> Add Version) which will duplicate all of your work and allow you to start making changes. What's also great about this is that all of your tracking and keyframing come through as well. For your example you could have had the first pass as Version 1. When he came back with the notes then you make Version 2. For the next round of notes where you're only cooling off certain shots, change those specific shots to Version 3. That way in the morning, when he said "I like these shots V1, these V2, these V3" you would have all of those grades ready to go - just pick which version of each shot before rendering. Also, taking the little extra time to label nodes when you have specific changes can really help you remember what the intention was. If you want stills for each version, you can quickly make a new still album, and in your viewer right click - grab all stills. You may not have the exact frame you want, but all of your node work will be there. Hope this helps!

Budget Grading Monitors
Jonnie Sirotek replied to Nicolas Hanson's topic in Monitors/ProjectorsI suppose it depends on what your needs are. I'm assuming at that budget range non-4K non-HDR? The Flanders DM250 is great, and hits right at $8000. 24.5 inches, OLED. Their customer support is also fantastic. I work on an older CM320 from them and love it.
