Now that your timeline is prepped for color correction, you will want your editor to render out a reference movie. This is key to the conform process so you know that the timeline imported correctly. How do you do this from DaVinci Resolve? Author Patrick Inhofer shows how to export a reference movie for color correction from DaVinci Resolve.
- The timeline has been simplified.…Our speed effects have been baked in.…We have organized all of our text.…We have organized all of our graphics files…in tracks, so that it all makes sense…when we handed off to someone else.…The next thing you want your editor to do…is render out that reference movie.…Remember, the reference movie is the key to the conform.…That is how we are going to figure out…did it this timeline actually import properly…the way it should have?…The reference movie is the key.…
What do we want on that reference movie?…Do we want to color corrections removed?…Do we want to titles removed?…My answer is no.

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.
