Workflow Wednesday

  1. This is a bit OT but did not want to make a post for this. Do you have a feedback day for users to ask for experts to give feedback on our rookie edits?

  2. Have you tried posting the video asking for feedback? … I have but have received little feedback other than well done.

  3. I have limited computing power, but i have a long video to edit from a trip. Could I edit shorter sections of the trip, like work on each day as a project, render them and then merge them into one longer video, or is there a downside to that?

  4. I think if you render in MP4 or something else with aggressive compression each time it will then stack up and you'll get additional compression on the finished film. If you use something uncompressed like dnxhr this wouldn't be an issue. If someone else can confirm this that would be great!

  5. You can try to use ffmpeg to join the exported clips. This way you won't need to reencode the h264s if you want to export in this codec. I know there is a function to join clips like that, but you need to test this workflow to make sure it would work.

  6. I know this is subjective and based entirely on a grader's abilities but if one is shooting in Log, not RAW, where would the ideal place in a node tree be, to add a CST node?

  7. Would your CST node conversion would be in Rec or some other color space? My power grade has 2 CST's One in the beginning and one in the last. i.e I got a S-Log3 or some other log footage, I convert it into Arri Log C in the 1st node, do all the necessary changes needed to achieve my grade and then in the final node, I add another CST to convert Log C to Rec 709.

  8. Why when exporting a 9x16 Instagram story to 1080x1920 is it sharper if I make the timeline double 2160 x 3840 and down res on export to 1080x1920 , then if I just make the timeline 1080x1920 and export as is .

  9. My microphone is experiencing interference from something I think, which is resulting in this strange, what I can only describe as artifacting:

  10. I’m new to video work except for some minor dabbling, and I’m learning Resolve. What do you use to manage your “raw” footage? (I mean from the camera, not raw in the technical sense). For photography I use Lightroom Classic, but haven’t seen anything like this for video. What’s the best approach to organize and make footage from different devices easily findable?

  11. I organise material in simple folders, then I rename all. Leaving the original name at the end, I add date YYMMDD in the beginning, then the name of the Film or theme, then a shortcut for either Camera person or Camera type. Also the folder always is named by date & theme.

  12. starting to use a wacom pen to edit and sometimes when i'm dragging an asset and lifting the pen up, the cursor (and thus the asset) moves past where i want it to land

  13. Hi guys, I'm relatively new to Resolve and I can't wrap my head around the functionality of fusion and the colour page working together. For example I don't understand why there is a chroma key function, a tracking function, a mask function etc in both fusion AND in the colour page yet when you add one of these effects on either page they do not communicate with each other in any way.I suppose what I'm trying to figure out is in what situation I would use a chroma key or a tracker or a mask in the colour page as opposed to fusion or vice versa?

  14. Suggest visiting YouTube, VFXstudy channel. He explains technical workflow between colour and fusion pages very well. Not flashy, nor hype, just a pedantic this is how to do it, and here are the gotchas to avoid. And he often corrects his own rare errors in later tutorials, which shows that he to is engaged in learning and developing his craft.
