When you start to think about building a DaVinci Resolve system, you will run into a lot of technical jargon. What technical terms are the key components to building your system? In this video, authors Robbie Carman and Patrick Inhofer discuss what I/O devices are and their role in a DaVinci Resolve system.
- You know Pat, one of the things I think confuses…a lot of new users to DaVinci Resolve…is how to get video and audio…in and out…of their system.…And you see a lot of people on forums go,…"Well, hey look, I've got a laptop,"…"why can't I just take you know the HDMI output"…"of my laptop, and you know, plug it into a TV?"…"Why can't I do that?"…- Yeah, why can't I just mirror it out,…and then I get to see it on a TV, and use that?…Well there are a couple reasons.…Number one, if you take that route, what you're going to do…is you're going to send out to your TV,…a color management scheme that's managed by...…
