  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts guys! I think I will go for 32GB, the 8GB update and 1TB SSD, but I'm a bit afraid of the fan noise... any experience with that? Not sure my wife will be very happy if it isn't silent when working from the sofa.
  2. I have a scene with an actor taking a photo of an object on a table. I need to add a flash. The shot is top down, so you don't see the actual flash light on the camera. Any suggestions on how to create it in Resolve Fusion?
  3. I bet Kevin will chime in on his setup for the twelve camera concert, but when it comes to performance as it seems like you have issues with - transcoding to a proxy format is your friend.
  4. Hi Jussi. What you are asking is not specific to Multicam but to performance in general. I highly suggest you transcode all your footage to DNxHD36 or PRORES Proxy prior to setting up any project for editing in DaVinci Resolve. Then you don't need to think about optimising your media or run things in lower resolutions. Working with high resolution media in DaVinci Resolve will always, need to be cached or optimised and come with a risk of slow playback.
  5. Thanks for going in detail about this Bruno, really appreciate it. At work we have a 2017 Macbook Pro with 3.2gHz, would that be a better choice than a 2020 with 2.3/4gHz?
  6. Hi Nicolas. I went for the same setup but is a bit surprised by the performance. It's stable but I'm having trouble editing Apple Prores 4444 files. Is that normal?
  7. For some reason the player window in the media and edit module is set to square (1:) instead of 16:9. I have set the timeline resolution and video monitoring to 1920x1080 (square) and the image scaling settings are set to "scale entire image to fit". I have created new projects with the same settings without any trouble so it might be a bug, but I thought I would ask if it's a stretch/squeeze button somewhere that I don't know about such as the one below the player window in After Effects.
  8. I'm looking for a home office solution (read: sofa solution) to run Avid and Resolve. I don't exactly need to run 8K in full realtime as the directors and clients aren't sitting next to me, but sometimes I will probably need to connect it to a client screen and have a session with others in the room. What Mac laptop would you go for?
  9. I have a brightness/contrast node after the mediaIn2 and the third node is a merge that is connected to MediaIn1. When I adjust the brightness it affects the whole image. Why is it like that? Shouldn't it only affect MediaIn2? How can I force it to only affect the brightness of MediaIn2?
  10. Is there any way to get DaVinci Resolve to float? Now it's either minimized or full screen so that I can't reach anything on my desktop. I'm on Mac.
  11. You mean importing the external clip with a loader and output the alpha to the color module?
  12. And what if I want to grade the external clip?
  13. For some reason is works if I tick the loop button...
  14. What if I want to change the grade after the comp is done?
  15. I'm trying to sort out what is the best way to set up a simple composting workflow in DaVinci Resolve Fusion. I have my main color graded shot and a couple of external shots that should be brought in and comped in on top of the main shot. My main concerns are that I'm prevented from creating a "new fusion clip" from the edit tab because (1) My main shot is graded and I want to be able to continue grade on it after the comp is done. (2) When I enter the Fusion tab I'm presented with the log shot but I want to do the comp one top of the graded shot (3) I want to be able to change what part of the external clip to use in the comp. So, That leads me to working inside of the Fusion tab without merging the clips using the "new fusion clip" command in the edit module. Then I can import the external clips with the loader node instead which lets me adjust what part of the external clips to use. It also allows me to regrade the main shot after the comp. But, I'm still can't comp on the graded shot. I know I can load a LUT but that will not do it in this case. I understand that comping a log shot with external log images is the preferred method sometimes, but what about those cases when you have linear images such as a jpg to be tracked onto a bus etc? Then I guess it would be better to comp on a graded image etc and not apply a grade on top of everything. Any thoughts?
