Round tripping is when you move your timeline from a non-linear editor to a color correction software like DaVinci Resolve and back again. It is like flying to a destination round trip. How does this work in DaVinci Resolve? In this movie, author Patrick Inhofer gives a high level overview of how to round trip timelines to DaVinci Resolve.
- When we talk about moving timelines…between our editing software…and our color correction software, and then back again,…most of us simply call it round-tripping.…In other words, like booking a round-trip airfare.…Our timeline finishes in the same place it starts,…which is our editing software.…You can round-trip a shot between Avid and After Effects,…or an entire timeline…between Final Cut X and DaVinci Resolve.…And you don't need to finish up…in the same non-linear editor you started in.…
DaVinci Resolve is really, really good…at moving timelines between editing systems.…So you can edit and lock your picture in Final Cut X,…send it to Resolve for color correction,…and complete the round-trip by exporting…out of Resolve into Avid Media Composer…for final finishing and delivering.…So, why Resolve?…Well, think about every color correction filter and plug-in…you have in your editing software.…Now, imagine if every one of those tools…was open full-time and instantly accessible…the moment you wanted it.…
And then imagine you want to refine your color correction,…
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.
