Conforming is when you go through each clip in your timeline and making sure every clip is frame for frame, shot for shot accurate. Sometimes, you will see that there are clips missing. In this movie, author Patrick Inhofer walks you through how to fix the missing clips in the timeline in DaVinci Resolve.
- And this is what conforming looks like.…You tackle one problem at a time, solve that problem,…move on to the next until you know…you're frame for frame, shot for shot, accurate.…Now, we're going to fix these two missing shots.…If I come down to the first missing shot,…I'm going to zoom in so I can get the name…of this clip.…And there's a really easy way…in Resolve to hunt for this missing clip.…What I'm going to do is highlight…all of the clips in all bins…by Shift + Clicking and enabling all bins.…
I've got them all listed here.…Now I just use the search function,…and I'm just going to look for an element…that is most likely unique…that will quickly filter this down…just to this clip to see if I even have it…in my media pool, if I need to hunt for any further.…So, I'm going to type in here 2150.…I could go with the _C0001, but I don't need to.…I'm down to two clips.…I'll change it to list view.…I'll hide the folders so that I can spread this out,…and take a look.…
And they both look identical.…One is C001.…One is C001_5000.…
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.
