v15 User Guide errors

PostTue Aug 28, 2018 1:00 am

Hi All, this thread is for you to report any errors you have found in the user guide. We know with +2600 pages there will be some and of course as the dev team works day and night it's hard to keep the documentation up to date.

However here is your chance, please list the page number and detail of errors you have found in the manual compared to the release version 15.

thank you.

It's not clear how one specifies account information.

There used to be a popup with a + sign.

The description is confused and there is no screenshot.

Got some, too:
P 19, first sentence, it says "5 main pages", but there are 6.
p 36, first paragraph: "The color page is divided into seven main areas [...] It's divided into seven regions." Seems like two times the same Information.
p 50, last picture set, the keyframe editor, shows twice the same picture and not a before/after situation.
p 176, to assign an input color space: "to more then one clip" should be "than"

(will be edited as I read along, stay tuned)

A few more

p510 'For Example, if multiple clips are selected .....all six clips will be trimmed'. It would be helpful to say that this is only the case if no clips are manually selected
p515 'Ripple trim Multiple Edits ...' what is the relevance of 49 edits?
p516 is 'Starting in version 12' relevant in a Resolve 15 manual?
p521 Section 3 In Selection Mode pressing S does nothing. Changing the Dynamic Trim Mode by right Clicking into slip or slide does not change the behaviour. Only a dynamic move seems possible not a dynamic Slide.

p532 Transition Properties/Duration. In the Inspector, if you change the Alignment, the Duration fields change to --. Changing the Duration then appears to make incremental changes with a + and - sign and then the display recerts to --. This is not documented.
p534 Transition Curve Editor works identically to the Curve Editor you can access from any clip. The Curve Editor has not yet been mentioned in the manual
p534 To delete a control point .... No Delete option is offered when right clicking on the Keyframe

p548 Editing Audio using the Source Viewer refers to setting the Viewer to Audio Waveform when viewing a clip with Video and Audio - but does not say how this is done - if indeed it can be.

Page 1590 Chapter 86 Miscellaneous nodes suggests that in the custom node the Point In 1 control is accessed via variable p1x, I have found this not to be the case, but instead in expressions in the custom node if I instead use PointIn1.X it works.

Page 1595 suggests that tan(x) is in degrees but it looks like it is in radians
I have to do tan(rad(45)) to get 1
deg(atan(tan(rad(45)))) to get 45

deg(x) - The number of degrees in x radians and
rad(x) - The number of radians in x degrees
could be added to the documentation.

Does anyone know what the variable name is for Aspect ratio or width is?
Page 1594 suggests w or ax but these don't work for me in the custom node.

p1x is correct as of 15.0.1.003.

tan(45) returns 1.0 for me.

But those functions don't exist.

Work for me (15.0.1.003).

I will note that the OpIconString for CustomTool is not Cu, but CT. This is also incorrect in the Fusion documentation.

EDIT: A LOT of the OpIconString are wrong when it comes to case. Like Replicate3D is 3Rep, not 3REP.

A general note, copy is again disabled for the PDF documentation, so I can't copy/paste errata into this message. It's super annoying and every time it's reported it gets fixed, but it's reverted back again later.

p2127 Figure of circles is wrong: The Layer Mixer prioritizes nodes connetected to lower inputs such that node's output completely obscures whatever is behind it.

Why are you posting this in a user guide errors thread? And why are you using very old beta code?

Download and install 15.1, and if you still have issues, please start a new thread to report them.

p. 2485, a typo under the description of the "Vocal Channel" Fairlight effect. What should read "High Pass" is instead spelled "Hugh Pass."

p488, not so much an error as an overly broad statement that initially confused me. Under "To create a Take Selector" the text "Right-click any clip that's not a title or generator, and choose 'Take Selector' from the contextual menu" seems to imply that you can create take selectors from audio-only clips. (e.g., different takes by a V.O. narrator.) This does not seem to be possible. Although you can get similar functionality using layers on audio tracks, that's a different feature, and maybe the Take Selector text should be qualified as "any video clip."

page 2280 Match move OFX.

Step one describes a contextual menu where you can 'add as matte etc....' I can't find this contextual menu when I right click a file in the media pool in the edit page, like the manual suggests.

p1x is correct as of 15.0.1.003.

Yes, was mostly my misunderstanding from reading the manual on how the custom node works.

I was referring to those things on the Point/Number controls tab expressions, but things like p1x don't work on that tab, only on the intermediate tab.

p. 336 Edit Index Columns
There is no mention of the column "Marker Keywords".
What is not logical for me is, that the content of that column is only shown if you select "Show Markers > All" from the "..."-menu in the edit index table. If you have "Show all" (the default) selected, that column never gets populated.

Also "Marker Keywords", "Marker Name", "Marker Notes". None of these filter options are mentioned in the manual regarding the edit index.

On a side note: I wonder why there is filter options for the above three but only one of them is available as column.

Actually, on CentOS 6.8 systems it is /home/resolve/LUT.

On a CentOS 7.x install, you are correct, it will be /opt/resolve/LUT.

At any rate, the docs should probably mention both, or if only one, the current CentOS 7 one.

Hello. I thought I would read the entire manual and post all the errors after it, but I'm afraid that by that time the page numbering may change and I will have to correct my numbering. So I will post bugs found and will post new bugs as soon as I find them.

Also thanks for jokes in manual it dilutes boring technical information :D

DaVinci Resolve 15.1.1.005
Resolve 15.1 Manual.pdf

27 “View>Single Viewer Mode” - this appears in Workspace>Single Viewer Mode

35 “Fusion>Console” - this appears in Workspace>Console

50 before/after screen the same

66 “upper left-hand corner” - bottom corner

70 wrong tab on screenshot, need “Create” tab

74 in dvr 15 there are no more “Automatically save project” option. Now “Live Save” and “Project Backups” appear in menu

91 “first in, first out” basis.” - unnecessary quotation marks

109 Motion Range - this can’t change clip by clip on edit page in inspector, may be you mean “Retime process” can be changed (on previous page)

124 “Add 3:2” - text formatting mistake

136 Tint - this topic need to move down in “Use Camera Metadata” as in menu in DVR

150 “exposes a a” - double “a”

159 “you can can” - double “can”

211 wrong screenshot, need super scale function screenshot

228 “you can toggle individual track on and off by clicking the track number underneath” it’s not work. and “mute button, at the bottom-left of the meters. lets you disable” mute button appear only at right of the toolbar, not in audio panel.

229 - “The Edit page…” - you mean “The Media page…” because we talk about media page in this chapter and screen shot appear media page

236 - “Add Folder and SubFolders into Media Pool (as Folders)” in DaVinci in parentheses appear “(Create Bins)”

243 - 2 – when click “Extract Audio” button no dialog appear to find another disk location for save audio

246 - “when View > Use Clip Name for Clip Titles” - this function not appear in View tab, may be you mean “Show File Names” in View tab

263 - “the Clip Name column (hidden by default)” - in new version of DVR Clip Name appear by default

297 - “Add 3:2” - text formatting mistake

304 - “not identical to, Cineon encoding” - unnecessary comma

335 - in new DVR 15 available new key: EDL Clip name and Marker Keyword (in DVR 15.1)

339 - “exposes a a” - double “a”

341 - need to describe new function “Annotation”

343 - “Use Gray Background in Viewers” - in View tab this call “Show Grey Background in Viewers” (word “Use…” use in User Preferences)

379 - Play to Out double “Option”

386 - in DVR 15.1 available new filter for markers - Marker Keywords

403 - “Option-8” - whole this line is unnecessary

412 - “.Linked Selection” - unnecessary period

431 - “Press Command-Option Up Arrow” - Command-Shift is correct shortcut

459 - double click M doesn’t open mark dialog DURING playback (only cmd+M)

462 - also marker can use marker keywords

463 - one more properties - marker keyword

467 - “Color or Notes column” also Keyword column

472 - “the lowest video track will be used” match frame use higher video track

478 - “Link Using” may be Detect Using?

Click a viewer and press Command-1 to resize the image in the Viewer to 100 percent.
Chapter – 45 Using the Fusion Page 746
‚ Click a viewer and press Command-F or Command-1 to reset the image in the Viewer to fit the Viewer.

those two lines contradicted each other.

page 758:
By default, new nodes are added from left to right in the Node Editor, but they can also flow from top to bottom, left to right, bottom to top, or in all directions simultaneously.

Isn't this outdated? Aren't the three options just format ["codec" in the menubar], version, and clip name?

782 - “to purple in the control” - maybe green in the control?

786 - “clips are are edited” - double “are”

799 - “composite. and the Gamut” - need capital letter “a”

802 - “a alpha” - an alpha

821 - “in the Inspector at the left” - at the right

DaVinci 15.1.1.005 hangs and does not respond if I click on Displacement keyframes. I need to close it without sending a report to Blackmagic.
