Once you have imported the timeline the editor sent you, you can take a look to see if it needs to be simplified. What do you want to look for in a timeline sent by an editor? How do you fix a timeline that needs some work? Author Patrick Inhofer walks you through how to simplify a busy timeline that you will be color grading in DaVinci Resolve.
