Once you have imported the XML into DaVinci Resolve and taken a look at what assets you have, you will need to start the conform process. How do you know that your timeline matches the reference movie given by your editor? In this movie, author Patrick Inhofer demonstrates how to fix initial problems in the timeline in DaVinci Resolve.
- You'll also notice besides the two clips…that are missing, my timeline is stacked in a way…that I taught you not to do in an earlier chapter.…We're going to have to deal with that as well.…But first, I want to make sure if I have any really big…problems with the timeline, which means,…we're going to import the reference movie…and lay it against this timeline and see what…are some of the initial problems we're having.…So let's jump into the Media Pool.…I'm going to make the Master Bin is selected.…
I'm going to jump into my exercise files.…Change it to List View, which I always find easier…to work with.…Jump into Media.…And now I've got a folder in here called…Reference Movie From Editor.…I'm going to right-click, and add that, creating a Bin.…I actually pulled in two movies.…The one we want right now is the Reference Final.…That's the one we're going to use.…So now I'll jump into the Edit Page.…Here it is.…I'll make sure my playhead is at first frame.…
And I'm just going to drag from the Bin…to the record side, down to the overlay, place on top.…
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.
