  1. Yeah that's one of my fav features too, I used to key the highlights and decrease contrast within that range but now Ravengrades Vol/Ratio handles it for me - with a roll of that makes it look good every time.
  2. If you have access to Ravengrade for Resolve, there are several film print emulations there that will work perfectly as a starting point for these types of looks. The rich and bold film contrast, tinting and strong restricted primary colors.
  3. Ravengrade is insane! Got it yesterday.
  4. I'm using the remote grade feature on a documentary where an interview is recorded on multiple clips. Any way to "link" those clips together someway, so that my grade applies to all those clips and not only the particular clip that belongs to the one I apply the grade too?
  5. They just announced their largest masterclass so far coming later this month.
  6. Mitch is on the Ravengrade.com contributor list now, so it's reasonable to think that his film print emulations are implemented in the Plugin. I'm first in line to get my hands on that product when the official sale opens.
  7. You can't delete parts of an audio clip embedded in a video clip. Do you mean to automatically delete parts of an audio track on the timeline where the sample plot is not bouncing? Not possible.
  8. Resolve is full range internally, so what you see on your desktop monitor is black at zero. The MP4 file you are looking at is legal range in QT, so what you see on your desktop monitor is black at 16 IRE. You should not work this way, but watch your grade on a proper color grading monitor. What you see on the grading montor will match what you see on your QT if set up correctly because of the way it handles the video signal.
  9. Yeah, even out of my comfort zone. Filmlight is a company that regularly speak and promote in channels where 90% can't afford their products. If they want to honor the craft, they should change their pricing model or bring an affordable product to the table.
  10. I suggest you guys use your time on writing a product that people actually can afford instead of arranging events like this.
  11. I think they are quite similar really when it comes to silver. You could try to de-connect the RGB channels and draw a luma curve. It will increase the silver. You could also use the top part of the curve to compress the highlights or flatten them out. And, play with the midtone details slider to reduce sharpness.
  12. Would need to see how the lighting is on the shots you are working on to determine which techniques to use to get there. Need to know what's already taken care of and what challenges you face.
  13. Any chance you can post references? Sounds like you are looking for ways to compress highlights but your post is a bit cryptic and I'm not up for guess games right now.
  14. What is a Mercury look? Is that a movie reference?
  15. Hi Marc. Any reason why you wouldn't use a parallel node istead of a layer node in this case? I find that by pumping the color I want from the source in a parallel node will give a less destructive result than with a key inside a layer node.
  16. I think this guide is spot on and stands out from the other guides out there because it actually dares to say that a professional line monitor comes with the higher price tag. Lowepost is one of the few reliable resources out there and I would be disappointed if they listed all the crap displays that can be found on some of the other industry blogs. We used the discontinued PVM-A250 for years, and recently bought the number two on this list - BVM- E251.
  17. New to motion design, and loved this course Nick. Hope for more!
  18. Download Desktop Video and if it's not visible there, you need to boot the Mac Mini M1 and reduce the security. 1. Apple menu/ Shut Down. 2. Press and hold the power button until you see “Loading startup options”. 3. Click Options, then Continue. 4. Reduce the Security Now, Desktop Video will recognise your Ultrastudio.
  19. Yeah, need to see the colour management settings and full UI.
  20. My first panel was the original Wave, followed by the Avid Artist panel and I'm also looking to upgrade @Tobia Montanari Lughi. I must say these images makes me want to order the Elements right away!
  21. I would set up the DaVinci Resolve Mini M1 with your devices like this: 1x Thunderbolt/USB4: UltraStudio HD/4K with external monitor and speakers. The ports on the Mini m1 has its own busses so it should not steal bandwidth from the other ports. 1 x Thunderbolt/USB4: External drives (with our without a hub) 1x HDMI 2: Screen 2x USB A: Panel etc 1x 3.5 mm/headphone: Desktop audio
  22. Is there any issues with using the UltraStudio Mini to connect audio and a monitor to the new Mac Mini m1?
  23. A big thank you Walter and Lowepost, this is big! 🙏
