  1. Is there any issues with using the UltraStudio Mini to connect audio and a monitor to the new Mac Mini m1?
  2. A big thank you Walter and Lowepost, this is big! 🙏
  3. You can hit the wall by not preparing for HDR, 4K etc of course, but how long will you an Eizo monitor last when thinking solely on the life span of the components and the image quality? Second, I have read that Eizo will update their cg2730 to a cg2740. Is that because the technology is old, and will they also update the cg279x?
  4. I wonder if I can save some cash by going for Eizo cg2730 instead of Eizo cg279x. I hope to be able to trust the internal calibration, but I understand it relies on calibration with a 1D LUT only. So for 100% accuracy I would probably need external calibration with a 3D LUT that cg379x has built in. I have also picked up that I don't need the built in 3D LUT capability that comes with cg279x if I add an external 3D LUT box (which I dont want to do) or output a 3D LUT from Resolve. So my question will be; what is the process of outputting a 3D LUT from Resolve when used for calibration?
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. You mean importing the external clip with a loader and output the alpha to the color module?
