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. What type of workflow makes this happen? Author Patrick Inhofer discusses two types of workflows that you can use when you round trip with DaVinci Resolve.

- [Instructor] There are some timeline elements…that cannot be translated.…And it's important stuff, like speed ramps…or third party plugins.…And sometimes there are miss translations,…all of this makes the handles workflow complicated.…These next three slides,…I'm not going to read out loud to you.…If you have access to the exercise files,…I provide this deck so you can read these at your leisure.…The point is, there are three parts to the handles approach…and none are simple.…
And we'll be talking about these…in detail over the next few chapters.…Part one, the editor has to prep the timeline…for the colorist and export the XML.…Part two, the colorist needs to import the XML…into resolve and then conform the timeline.…In a later chapter, I will walk you step-by-step…through my conform process,…which is critical for successful round trip.…Part three is rendering and exporting…the footage in XML to get the color graded footage…back into your editing software.…
Each of these parts has a series of steps that…need to be addressed.…
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.
