Another workflow you can use when you color grade footage is the flat file workflow. How do you set up 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 use the flat file workflow to conform your timeline in DaVinci Resolve.
- If you've been watching this entire Guru series…from the beginning, at this point,…if you're doing the handles workflow, you're ready to go.…It's time to start color correcting.…But, if you've decided instead of…doing the handles workflow, you want to do…the flat file workflow, where the editor renders out…his timeline as a complete single movie,…and you pull that into color correct,…that's what we're going to talk about…for the next few movies.…Let's start here in Divinci Resolve,…by creating a new project.…
I'm going to call this Trust_me-flat file.…We'll jump into the media pool,…let's pull up our exercise files,…and in the media folder, I've given you…another reference movie called scene cut.…Why is it called scene cut?…Because that is the work flow we're…going to follow here in Resolve, where we have…a single Quicktime movie of an entire timeline.…
We want to break up each of these shots…in this one long movie into individual shots,…and then put them into a timeline.…And that's what the scene cut work flow will allow us to do.…
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.
