- If there's one feature about SQL databases…that I really like, it's the clarity they provide…about what happens and when I'm upgrading…from one version of DaVinci Resolve to another.…So, when we move from Resolve 11 to Resolve 12,…it's very clear that we have to update our SQL database.…DaVinci Resolve doesn't even let us open an older version…of the database in a newer version of Resolve…until we physically tell it to update that database.…
Let's take a quick look at what, precisely,…I'm talking about.…If you look at the Resolve 10 sample database,…if you notice, I try to select it,…I've got it highlighted and I come down…and I can't select it.…Why? What's going on?…Yet, if I highlight any one of these other two databases,…I can select them.…You'll also notice that I've got Resolve 12 highlighted,…right now, and notice this Optimize button?…Notice what happens to it when I switch to the…Resolve 10 database.…
I've got an Upgrade button next to it.…What this is telling me is, I can't select it…because it's an old version of the database.…
Indie feature film and broadcast colorist Patrick Inhofer puts these more sophisticated features to practical use—color-grading shots from a documentary. Along the way, he covers the Resolve Studio databases, media management, advanced primary and secondary color-correction techniques, and even Resolve performance optimization. Follow along with the three "In Action" chapters to learn how to create a base grade, match shots, and build cinematic looks. Plus, get a glimpse into the advanced features available only in DaVinci Resolve Studio, such as motion effects and noise reduction, to help you decide if you need to upgrade to the paid version of DaVinci Resolve.
It doesn't matter what kinds of projects you shoot or edit. This training will help you develop your color correction "muscles" and deliver better results more reliably every time.
