  1. How do I change the background color of the UI in DaVinci Resolve?
  2. Thanks guys! It looks like this is addressed in DaVinci Resolve 17 as they have included a new function called "remove gaps".
  3. To be honest, I'm s bit disappointed. It might seem like a unthankful comment, but do we really need the hundreds of things they just added? A few things maybe. What I would like to see is simple compositing tools in the editing module, in+out rendering in addition to the unreliable smart cache, better sub cap tools, a Fusion that doesn't crash every minute, editing tools that editors from the other big NLEs are used too and so on.
  4. How to remove empty space on the timeline in DaVinci Resolve? I have more than two hours of blank space after the last clip on the timeline that I want to remove, and I have tried to set in+out point and delete it but it doesn't work.
  5. Hi Cole. I would say, start with the professional color grading course as it will take you through the most important steps. Then I would dive into the masterclasses and read the color grading case studies in the insider section of the site. When you are ready for it watch the color management workflow course. I also find the conforming course very useful and tend to go back and watch parts of it when I'm stuck with I/O issues.
  6. Lately I have been editing in Resolve. It's quite a transition from Avid, but I'm starting to like it, and I save so much time with everything around such as the conform tools, audio syncing, rendering and so on. I have one newbie questions though. In Avid I have a button at the bottom of the timeline that lets me switch the timeline between the player and source. How do I do that in the edit module of Resolve? It's very useful when editing source audio.
  7. To deliver the job, I rendered the 16:9 clip out and brought it back into the square timeline.
  8. That could be a workaround, the problem is that the original timeline contains so many unwanted elements such as subtitles. I applied a resize (stretching it back to 1920x1080) after the polygon (and prior to the media1) and that seems to work in this case. I have done some more testing with copy/pasting fusion comps to different timelines with different aspect ratios, and it seems that if I copy the original fusion comp and paste it into a new 1:1 resolution timeline, it will crop everything outside of the square and it seems impossible to retrieve the lost pixels. The trick with app
  9. After having looked closer to it, it looks like the scaling and crop matches, but that the roto of his hand (the polygon) is twisted. I have wired the polygon directly to the Media in, if that can have something to do with it?
  10. You can by going to the subtitle settings on the render tab and choosing burn into video just like Sergey explains above.
  11. Sometimes it's not possible to "mark in" or "mark out" or move the markers (in/out-points) in the delivery tab. Probably a bug, but it's been a around for a while? Any workaround? I have also noticed that if I choose the default "protools" option the in-point automatically sets itself to the first frame of the timeline, and it's not possible to move it.
  12. Do you know if it's a shortcut to center audio on clips in DaVinci Resolve? Most dialogue sound I get is either on the left or right audio channel and in Avid i simply click 0 in the audio mixer to center it.
  13. I have the worlds most annoying problem that I hope you can help me with. I have a HD 1920x1080 timeline with many effects that I have done inside of the Fusion tab in Resolve. Everything works well until I copy the Fusion clips and paste them into timeline with a different aspect ratio such as a square or vertical one. Then all of the sudden, the effects such as a roto of a hand with that is composited on top of the clip below in the main timeline goes crazy, re-positions, twists and turns in all direction. What is going on here? I have tried to manually just reposition the clips but it
  14. I do deliver square (1:1) and vertical videos (4:5, 5;4, 9:16) from DaVinci Resolve for social media all the time. Are there any settings inside of Resolve that let's me downscale the image on monitor so that I can see the full frame?
  15. Thanks Az, this works! Not very accurate for me that is used to change timing and in-points in the composer window but this is much better than not being able to work this way at all.
