Once you know your timeline has been simplified, you will need to look to see if there are any baked in effects or speed ramps. What do you do to keep these effects and speed ramps intact? Author Patrick Inhofer walks you through how to work with baked in effects and speed ramps in a timeline that you will be using in DaVinci Resolve.
- Simplifying the timeline is a good start,…but the editor's job is not finished yet.…If you take a look at my timeline,…down here at about 15:15,…let's zoom in,…and you're going to see that there's a little speed icon.…There is some sort of speed change going on here.…Let's go ahead and play it through…and see what's happening,…and I'll Command F to make it full screen.…And they speed up and slow down.…Let me Command F back out again.…
The other thing I'm going to do right now to tidy things up…is tell it to show all video frames.…In case you're not aware,…Resolve will always try to maintain audio playback.…What I'm about to tell it to is maintain video playback.…I want to see every single frame,…especially here when I'm setting up the timeline…and even in the conform process.…So I'm going to show all video frames,…take one more look at that speed ramp,…speeds up and slows down.…If we actually right click…and take a look at the retime curve,…you'll see that there's a slope going on here.…
These types of speed effects…
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.
