Position Keyframe Bezier??? Curves???

PostTue Nov 28, 2017 8:36 am

Pardon me, I'm new here.

I really like the speed of the shuttle in the new Resolve and I'm thinking of switching (at least for my personal projects). I currently use Premiere both for work videography and my own creative projects. The thing I'm having trouble with today are the "Position" X/Y keyframes. I use these constantly. Especially since I shoot in 4K, reframe and distribute in HD. I use position at work with conference and educational videos (keeping a moving speaker within a graphic). I use it on other projects to hide bad camera moves. And I always use it with drone footage to refine my framing.

Is there a way to get "curves" for the position keyframes? Seriously. I use these every day.

Thanks!

P.S. The keyframes in the edit page are tough. :/

You can do this by using the Transform tools selectable in the lower left of the View menu on the Edit page. Pages 527-528 of the Resolve 14 manual.

Thanks Marc.

Upon first try, it doesn't quite do what I need or maybe I'm just not used to it. I'll play with it for a couple of days and see.

But there's no ease in/ease out with that interface. Now, maybe what we all really need to learn is the new Dynamic Zoom feature. But for those of us from the stone age, it's remarkable that Resolve doesn't give us keyframes we can ease for Pos X/Y.

Dynamic Zoom has little to do with proper bezier curves for position. The lack of Positioning curves in Resolve is a SEVERE shortcoming that I hope will be corrected ASAP. It's purely amateurish that it's not there already, I'm sorry to say.

Glad I'm not the only one thinking re framing and zooming of video/photos in Resolve is very cumbersome. One of the areas that Sony Vegas really does well...

I'm also new and will keep studying this but hope it gets some attention soon as it is a big part of my 4k to 1080p workflow.

This feels like a bug really.

Let's say, you want to animate the Zoom and Transform settings between two keyframes in the duration of a shot. Since both settings contribute to how the animation will play out it is a crazy omission that only the Zoom controls can have their bezier handles exposed.

There is not even an option to have the Transform's keyframes displayed in the spline/keyframe editor. (!?)
