Every so often, you will receive a drive with the original media and original edit project and you will want to copy this media so you have a backup. Where in the conform process can this happen? In this movie, author Patrick Inhofer walks you through how to create another copy of the media at the end of the conform process in DaVinci Resolve.
- We're almost done with the conform.…Now there's one, well two, things left to do.…The first thing we're going to do is,…we want to get all of the footage off of this drive here,…we've got the timeline the way we want it.…Now we want to get it off this client drive…and onto our drive, so I'll show you some options…for doing that in here in DaVinci Resolve.…And remember, this timeline here…was not simplified for us,…so we're going to have to do that on our own.…Typically what I would do is I'd watch it down,…I'd watch the reference movie, I'd make a phone call,…make sure there's no reason why these are doubled up,…and then I'd do exactly what I instructed…that your editor do, and drop these all down to…as few tracks as possible, so that the only clip…in the timeline are those clips…that play back and are visible up here in the viewer.…
Next, my first inclination would be to…delete track four here, which is our reference movie,…but I actually want to copy that to my hard drives as well,…so I'm going to leave that in place.…
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.
