In the Resolve 12 Essential Training, we spent a lot of time on conforming our timelines to match the final locked picture handed to us from editorial. But Resolve has another type of conforming it performs and it has to do with the relationship between the media in your timeline and the media in your Media Pool. For more clarity, watch this movie.
- It's interesting, when I was going through the manual…in DaVinci Resolve and it was talking about…maging media and relinking to media.…It calls out a little blur, talking about the difference…between conforming media and relinking media.…And I thought it's a big enough point…that I wanted to talk about it here…in this training series because it is an advanced concept…and it's a really important one.…And let's start with the notion of conforming.…There are two types of conforming.…We can conform our timelines.…
What does that mean?…Well, back in Resolve 12 essentials…in chapter six, there's a whole thing…where I take you through conforming a timeline step by step.…And what we're doing is, we're taking a reference movie…from editorial, pulling it into our system…and comparing it to our timeline…that we've imported via xml or edl.…And we make sure that the editor's timeline…matches our timeline shot for shot…frame for frame, really important you do this.…
That's conforming a timeline,…and where there are problems, you fix them.…
Indie feature film and broadcast colorist Patrick Inhofer puts these more sophisticated features to practical use—color-grading shots from a documentary. Along the way, he covers the Resolve Studio databases, media management, advanced primary and secondary color-correction techniques, and even Resolve performance optimization. Follow along with the three "In Action" chapters to learn how to create a base grade, match shots, and build cinematic looks. Plus, get a glimpse into the advanced features available only in DaVinci Resolve Studio, such as motion effects and noise reduction, to help you decide if you need to upgrade to the paid version of DaVinci Resolve.
It doesn't matter what kinds of projects you shoot or edit. This training will help you develop your color correction "muscles" and deliver better results more reliably every time.
