support for this;

we already know it's supported by Autodork and mapper, so through mapper... Pp, Mystika, Nucoda & Scratch, we don't know if it's supported by Resolve

Baselight & Pablo Rio are likely given the current support for Elements

Vastly more elegant than the "timewarp to 1998" design of the Advanced / Mini /Micro panels

We all agree that Resolve 14 is an impressive update.
But I feel a little disapointed (like a spoiled child) that some of my features requested (all of them actually :mrgreen: ) have not (yet) been implemented.

So here's a quote from the old thread

1) To be able to add a node to a TextTitle. For grading or fx.

2) Keep transparency of a compound clip.

3) Double-click in media pool to import media.

4) Curves for position keyframe.

5) When we drag'n drop a file from bin to timeline, it always move the playhead at the end of the clip. Would be nice to have an option to not move the playhead.

6) A shortcut/button to export an image right from the timeline.

7) A new timeline created from a clip could have the same name by default.

8) A visual icon on optimized media thumbnail would be nice.

9) Optimizing in background.

10) An option to remove unused footages from bin. (there is a workaround with smart bins)

11) The ability to replace any file by another one.
I'm thinking about offline different sources.

12) When we select and split a clip on timeline, both parts are selected.
That's unusual, but I'm sure you had a good reason to do that :mrgreen:
Anyway, maybe adding a split which will select only one part (on Edius you can choose which part, it's very useful).

13) More keyboard shortcuts (clip attribute, duplicate timeline, etc...)

14) The ability to move forward and backward the playhead with the vertical wheel mouse.
And why not, to zoom in and out with horizontal wheel mouse.

15) A next/previous clip/edit that could work with all tracks, even if tracks selector are not active or clip selected.

Thank You BlackMagic :D

- mark clips in the edit pool, that are used in the timeline
- change clip order in the edit pool / media pool by click and drag (I really miss that to speed up rough cuts)
- option to dissable playhead snapping
- more render options on deliver page with estimated file size (very important!)
- more options for the titel generator, like individual line spacing and sizing in roll titles, preview of fonts (premier is far ahead)
- the ability to move the selected part of a clip in the viewer to choose another part of the clip without changing the length of the selection (like in premiere).
-keyframes in the timeline for position (Transform)
- more intergrated audio effects in fairlight (denoiser, dehummer, Reverb etc....but this is a luxury request)

I have not tested the sound page yet, but I am very happy, that it has been added to Resolve! Great move!

Just looked at the images of new audio features, and ... I didnt see.. CROSSFADES !!!
Not talking about applying a transition onto a cut (to make the cross fades)
Talking about something like Vegas (still my favorite audio editor ever), in which I can simply overlap one clip onto another and automatically the crossfades show up. I can do literally magic with this . Once I was able to correct grammar in a bad spoken English dialogue.

and my second cent, zoom waveform (just the representation, not the actual clip/track height, and not the audio level, just to be able to see better very low sound levels) without having to zoom vertically the tracks.

Really cool what they have done with the implementation of the "Fairlight" tab. Taking adobe aproach of software dialog, making it easy and under the same roof, avoiding RAM battles and software priorities and constant crashes like adobe NLE, DAW and Compositing softwares...

Not sure of the 10 times faster architecture because I have not tested it yet, but I am sure it has improved a lot.

It would be really cool, in some future major version, to include FUSION in a seemless workflow like the one just now released. It would be amazing to have the "Fusion" tab next to the "Edit" tab...

I hope the guys from Blackmagic listen to this little advice: There is a company that makes the worlds best codec, for aquisition (in-camera) and to edit (Resolve or other NLE) with the help of a regular gaming graphics card (nvidia 980) you can edit REAL TIME 4 8K streams of footage up to 1100FPS. This is a game changer codec! Blackmagic being a game changer company should work close with the guys that developed this codec solution, the company that makes this codec is CINEGY and the codec is named "Daniel2".

You can literally bring to consumers a huge leap forward, being the catalist of a peak in technology and inovation.

Thank you very much for all the possibilities and solutions that you give to people!!

Pleeeeeaaaase....
This will deliver a lot of editors from a useless loss of time (and therefore get Resolve closer to other NLEs)...
Furthermore, everybody should be ok with this (moreover if it's an option only), because everybody encounters issues when approaching the beginning/end of a clip to trim, and then the playhead snaps where it's not wanted...
And yes, zooming in before and out after the operation can partially help but no, this is not a real solution.
I think you could put it in v. 14 actually :)

This one makes me crazy. I totally wish it would only select the second half of the clip.

And a few others related to editing (let me know if they happen to be in there already, I might have overlooked them):
  • Custom effect presets
  • Shift+scroll -> Horizontal scrolling in timeline (isn't currently working for me)
  • Use mark in or out to move your cut in dynamic trim mode (while playing with Spacebar)
  • Send audio clips to external audio editor (like RX or Wavelab)
  • Option to left click anywhere in the timeline to freely move the playhead around (like in Avid when the Smart Tool is disabled), perhaps by using a modifier like shift.

Surely you know that's already possible? Or did you have something else in mind? It would be nice if they fixed that bug which forces the playhead to snap to the transition when the playhead and the graphic of the trim tool overlap, but you can at least turn snapping off for this operation and then use the "E" command to trim to the playhead. (Note that invoking a trim tool with snapping off can in some cases resize the timeline. But the playhead doesn't actually move.)

There are also shortcuts which trim to the playhead without having to select a trim tool or alter snapping behavior.

Do you mean slipping? But of course that's already possible, in both the timeline and source viewer. Or is it something else?

1) hit "T" (for Trim mode)

2) on the timeline, position the cursor on the upper portion of the clip and drag right or left. If you're on the lower half, you'll be sliding, not slipping. The icons are different.

3) in source viewer, click shift the in or out point and drag in either direction

Yeah, yours are all real. But I'm not sure why we're doing this now.... There's so much in stability and feature-set they have to sort out in 14.

Which is probably why Peter Chamberlain didn't create a user-feedback thread for 14 -- all the work they're *already* aware of.

So I only have a small wish for a small color grading quality-of-life idea.

- Let us add a clip to multiple groups.

So far I use groups to organize clips after scenes. I like to use some scene wide effects like noise reduction or graining so I can easily turn them on and off for the whole group of clips. But I would also like to put clips into groups for shot reverse shot just to speed up working.

That would be nice.

ONE WISH that keeps me from editing in Resolve:
- while trimming, and using the "U" back and forward of either side : please imitate Media composer and allocate the left and right images to each of the viewers, left and right, and not only to the right viewer.
If not possible, allow the Full SCREEN mode to reflect both sides of the trim edit. Now if the Trim mode
is selected if one goes to full mode (it reflects both side) but it doesn't work.,

In the "color" tab when adding a powerwindows (exemple), it is possible to view it in the monitor beyond a BMD card. This makes it possible, for example, to make an accurate adjustment of the effect. (in large)

There is no equivalent in the "Edit" tab. However, when using the transform or other keyframe effect Transform / crop / dinamic zoom or overlay, it would make it possible to be more precise. (Or I have not found how to operate :?: )

Some say about 15 k range.

I would see ideally updated advanced panel instead as Mini already seems like center console for it.

My old Quicktime movies won't play on the free Linux version, but high-end RAW files from Arri, Red and Sony are fine.

48K Audio from my A7S won't play on any OS or version, but the AVCHD video from the camera is fine.

But everything can be read by ffmpeg and be played on Linux with ffplay, including H.264. There may be legal reasons for not including particular formats, and while I also understand the desire for product differentiation (e.g., UHD v. 4K, noise reduction, etc.), it seems some of the file format/codec limitations make little sense. High-end formats are on the free version, while low-end formats are only on the Studio version.

How about file format plugins ala OFX? Most of the formats are well known and open source. It would not be that difficult for users to write and add them just like OFX plugins.

Cheers.

Talking about something like Vegas (still my favorite audio editor ever), in which I can simply overlap one clip onto another and automatically the crossfades show up. I can do literally magic with this .



You can do Shift+Option and drag (edit point or whole clip) to overlap audio (or video), this automatically adds transition.

Hey folks,
I would love to see:
- OFX beeing keyframeable in the edit page (in the same way as standart clip settings like "transform" and "cropping" are)
- clip attributes (OFX and standart clip settings) saveable and copy-pastable in the edit page.

That's why I think this thread is very premature. Let's delete the entire thing and wait at least for the final version to ship.

That will keep the "already there" feature requests (which might drown out the genuinely needed feature requests) down to a minimum.

I am grateful for BMD for implementing some of our requests - e.g. next clip/edit now has a partial solution in that if the highlighted clip is off screen, it ignores it, deselects it and goes to next edit. That's great. Oh and the stabiliser is amazing - I'm going to be putting shots into the beta (on my laptop) just for that!

Can't believe Duplicate frames indicator didn't make it - surely that's quite an easy win? But I suppose we all have different things we really wanted.

Also, it would be nice to only have to reach for one modifier to swap clip order in the timeline, rather than two (ctrl-shift), as it's such a common operation in editing.

Thankful for that improvement, but I wonder why they didn't listen to us(!??!), and go whole hog -- next/previous completely independent of clip selection? Or at least a switch to turn off automatic clip selection mode and decouple the playhead from any given selection. There *is* precedent, with other switches in Resolve, for that sort of user accommodation.

For me at least, this issue can't be over-flogged. And it's hard to believe that, among editors, there's any constituency for the current design.

I think that's the rub - that they're not just designing for editors, but for everyone & for example colorists are used to the next clip command on the Color page. I do think they could give us an option for Next Edit hidden away in the keyboard editor, but I also have some sympathy for the process of not over complicating things or changing too much from previous versions.

Would like to see the option to freeze the scopes during playback.

Reason: I have performance problems on my machine while the scopes are on. So I have to switch them of to get the full frame rate. It would be great, if Resolve would stop refreshing the scopes during playback.

I have less sympathy but more faith..... Some day.

And if they'd only add that *other* option -- to switch cursor function to the timeline when adding clips from the media pool. As of 12.5.5, you do get timeline cursor function when using function keys to add clips from the media pool, but not for right click commands (insert, append, etc.) or dragging and dropping to the program monitor overlay.

I agree -- I solved this problem by not using Resolve's internal scopes and instead using external Scopebox scopes. (You could also use BMD's external UltraScopes.) This does take a bit of a load off the system running Resolve. It also gives you real-time scopes while rendering, which you can't do otherwise.

Nr 1 - Edit Page
The thing thats keeping me from using Resolve as an editing application is full GUI modularity and customization. That's including things like pancake editing. I think I've read somewhere that this is not as much a technical hurdle for BMD rather an internal software design philosophy not to let the end user customize the GUI for his/her needs. While for color grading this is not as painful. Editing Is a very different can of worms and in my opinion this is just unaceptable. Considering That some editing apps have this nailed down for decades now. It just plain bizare.

Nr 2 - Color Page
Something closely related - Ability to undock scopes from main UI while in double screen mode.

Nr 3 - Color Page
Something I posted about in this forum in 2014 :) If this is implemented in V14 please disregard. It would be very helpfull if upon opening a project we would be "transported" to the exact position on the timeline that we stopped working before closing the app. in 12,5 i think this is still just random and frustrating as heck :).

Nr 4 - Deliver Page
Please correct me if Im wrong but in V11 on export Page after setting up all your export setting - including file names and file path, this data would be saved even after restarting resolve. This was super helpfull. Now in 12.5 after exporting and restarting resolve - File name window is empty. This is handy when exporting diferent sections of the timeline mutliple times.

Nr 5 - Deliver Page - When exporting sections of the timeline - ability to automatically add "in point" timecode to the file name.

Nr 5 - Color Page
If this is something that already is avilable or maybe exlusive to Big Panels please correct me. Ability to apply Grades from Power grades to multiple clips not only to the end of the node tree but also to the begining or after first node - after second node etc.

Nr 6 - Color Page
Im going to say this just in case - FIX CACHE :)

Nr 7 - Color Page - Lightbox
In versions of Resolve below 12,5 when navigating light box - upon going to the next clip the lighbox screen would stay still (on the grade from witch You want to copy from). Now in V12,5 when going to the next clip the whole lightbox window centers on the clip the playhead is on. This makes copying grades a real pain.

Nr 8 - Color Page
Ability to create Project specific power grades that will be visible only on specific group of projects - not all projects.

N9 - Color Page
And this one is a plea for help from the community really not so much a feature reqest :) (or is it?)
In prev versions of resolve - below 12,5 - When grading a multitrack timeline. When grading only the highest track with lower tracks disabled. Resolve would skip lover tracks an go straight to next clip on the higher track. In 12,5. What is happening is that in thumbnail timeline i see only clips from enabled track but instead of skipping to the next clip on enabled track Resolve doesn't skip but plays "black image" until it reaches the next clip on the enabled track.

N10 - Every PAGE
Please make it compulsory to save a project before starting actual work on a project. Every time I come to resolve from a diferent app, it takes a little time to remember that if You wont click "save" immediately on creating a project - no autosaves will be created. Last week i realized i did not do that 6h into the project, I almost had a hart attack :) This time all was well but I had couple of instances when i realized the same thing the hard way - after the crash.

N11 - SCOPES
This comes down also to to GUI customozation - Ability to customize scope windows - Ability to put up for example Waveform monitor in Y mode and second one in RGB mode at the same time. Shortcuts for turning on and off diferent scopes -shortcuts for turnning on/off Y RGB on scopes etc.

My #1 wish would be shortcuts for these tools. Pretty annoying to use mouse everytime to change the tool.

Since the LUT you may have activated for viewing in the Ursa Mini is indicated in the metadata, there should be an option to apply it in Resolve automatically. Even better than being able to bake it in (which is not possible).
