If you need to zoom in, blow up, re-size, re-frame or re-position your image then you’ll want to know about the Sizing Menu on the Color Page. In this movie, you’ll get an overview of the controls common to all the different Sizing Menus. You’ll also get an overview of the relationship between Sizing and Blanking tools in the Color Page and the Transform and Cropping tools in the Edit Page.

- In my Resolve 12 essentials training,…we dug through almost every single menu here…in the color page except for one…and that was the sizing menu…and I left that here for the advanced section of…our training because it really is kind of…an advanced concept the way it's implemented…here in Resolve.…What's going to happen is most people…are going to do their resizing in the edit tab.…Let me take a quick look…and see what we're talking about.…So if we jump into the edit page,…and we look at the timeline 0304 the sizing menu,…if you're following along on the exercise files.…
I've taken from our previous chapter,…the resizes we copied and pasted…so if I command nine to open up the inspector…and highlight our clip,…these transform controls are the same…as on the color page Shift 6.…I jump into this sizing control here…and select edit sizing.…They're exactly the same.…If I go ahead…and let's change, let's come to the end of the shot here.…
You'll notice that the zoom x and y parameters have changed.…You'll also notice that the blanking has changed…
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.
