Another workflow you can use when you color grade footage is the flat file workflow. How do render out a project that uses the flat file workfow? How is it different from the handles workflow? In this movie, author Patrick Inhofer demonstrates how to render out a project that uses the flat file workflow from DaVinci Resolve.
- I figured I'd take the time right now while we're talking…about flat file workflows.…How do we deliver the flat file workflow?…Because in the next chapter I'm going to take you through…the delivery process, when we're delivering…in a handles workflow.…So let's just keep this all nice and self-contained…and take a quick look at this.…And it all comes down into the deliver page.…So we've done our flat file workflow, we've done our…color correct, now we're going to go into…the deliver page to deliver.…What option do we select here?…Well you don't select any of these Final Cut or Premiere Pro…or Avid EEF workflows.…
These are all if your delivering…individual clips with handles.…We have no handles.…This was given to us as a single QuickTime movie,…that's how it's going back to the editor.…What we can do is one of two choices, we can go custom,…or your could pick say Vimeo 1080p…and then just go ahead…and change some of the codec stuff, right.…So instead of delivering H.264 you're going to deliver…a high quality codec, a post-production codec,…
You'll also explore the concept of conforming. Conforming is verifying your timeline in Resolve precisely matches the timeline exported from your non-linear editor. Plus, learn the options for sending your color corrected timeline back to your nonlinear editor for final graphics and export.
