Resolve for master file export / GFX problem

PostWed Sep 13, 2017 2:13 pm

Hi there,

since I'd like to use Resolve as my main application to export the finalized master of a clip/film etc. I was wondering if you guys could help me with the following problem:

Most clients obviously want their logo or other imported graphics in their commercial clip, but I still haven't found a way to import graphics with an alpha channel properly. Usually, for a logo or text, I'd import a hi res TIFF with transparency switched on, but I've experienced a) loss in graphic quality (pixelated edges) when I scale the logo down within Resolve and b) graphics with alpha do not translate well in Resolve and the graphics' edges do not interpret the alpha correctly and therefor the edges aren't "clean".

I've tried it with several file formats like TIFF, PNG and PSD to see if the problem only happens with a particular format, but all formats (that support transparency) have the same problem.

Is it Resolve not being ready for GFX work yet or is it me that needs to check/uncheck a certain program setting?
