Remote EDITING in Resolve 12?

PostTue Feb 16, 2016 6:16 pm

We don't have 2 Resolve Studio dongles, so we can't simply try this but I noticed the following in the manual:
(typed because the Resolve Manual doesn't allow copy&paste of text without a password.)

Page 1079

Collaborators can do the following changes:
* Edit Metadata
* Create and Modify...Grades
* Create and manage multiple versions



remote editing
What I'm missing here is any reference to EDITING.
If there was a second person with a Resolve Studio dongle
and we set up a PostgreSQL database
and we managed to ship the original footage to him
and we opened up the proper ports on our public IPv6 (IPv4?)
adress for connections from his computer (what ports ARE these anyway? 15000+ 5432 for PostgreSQL?)
would that person be able to do changes in the EDIT panel on his own?

disconnected editing
If this failes,
is there a way to export individual projects and import them on another workstation?
(e.g. one person working on a disconnected laptop and a desktop
or multiple people editing different parts)
(yes: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=28663 )
Is there a way to import timelines from one project into another, to merge the editing-work?
(last year this was impossible: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=33041 )

remote grading
Page 1086 of the Resolve 12 manual.
I read that remote grading requires no shared PostgreSQL database.
Does that mean that the remote station can be a Resolve lite of the same version as
the Resolve Studio master?
(The requirement of having the same display resolution would be..difficult but possible.)


PS:
In my opinion it's a shame that you can't give a director or assistant Resolve lite
while running a master with Resolve Studio and have them do anything.
If not remote edit, then at least look "over the shoulder" of the colorist/editor (who's in a different city)
to make informed, quick, creative decisions using Resolve lite.

worth the collaboration workflow, even with multiples machines, only one at any point in time can do edit.

whoever is the master will be allowed to do edit. you can switch that, but is not a "everybody" does at the same time then reconcile it.

Actually, the capacity for collaborative grading is much more developed in DR than editing.

If you are looking for serious collaborative editing go Avid.

I'm not looking into serious, collaborative editing.
Just evaluating the features I have with the software I have for the next project.

Well, then as Walter said. Whoever is the "owner" of a timeline can edit. Others can edit metadata or do color grading.

Aparently the 12.5 feature list didn't include Remote Editing either.
So live multi-user workflows are still unsupported.

However I'm eager to test the new ability to drag and drop compound clips between different
projects and decompose them when dragging them into a time line.
It means I (hopefully) can match the cameras here.
Then have individual parts being edited by remote assistants.
Probably even using the free version and using proxy media.
Then combine their work into a master timeline here, add denoise, do the final grading
and render deliverables.

Hopefully collaboration will be developed in DR soon.

Isn't this truly needed for feature work where assistants prep

Timelines, string outs , bins , .


Any suggestions on how this could work presently ?
