Opening Fusion Composition in DaVinci Resolve

PostTue Mar 14, 2017 11:21 pm

It seems to be fairly easy to create a linked Fusion composition from within DaVinci by right clicking on a clip in the timeline and selecting "New Fusion connect clip".

But I am new to Fusion and Resolve and so was unaware of this option, and I was playing with Fusion and created a composition. I now want to import this composition into Resolve as a connected Fusion composition, but am unable to find any information on how to do this? Is it possible, or do I have to render it out and import is the usual way losing the ability to edit this original composition?

I haven't really played with the link between resolve and fusion but maybe send a blank clip from resolve to fusion and paste your flow.

Hi,

when creating a fusion connect, Resolve renders the clip to use it in fusion, creates the base fusion comp project with loader, properly set saver and project name and then starts fusion with this project.

When you are done with your composition, you save the composition in fusion and render it out.

After rendering, resolve has automatically the rendered clip in its timeline and also all needed references to the fusion comp.

When you need to edit the fusion connect clip, you go to your clip in resolve, right mouse button / fusion connect / open in fusion and tadaaaa, fusion opens with your comp and you can edit it.

After editing, save the comp, render it and so forth.

I hope it helps.

So as I understand it, the only advantage of having a "Fusion connect" clip is to have the Fusion gui setup ready with all the information and a loader with the selected footage (and saver).
At the end there is always the rendering taking place. So if you use the rendered media which is communicated between the two apps or use your own render output is just a matter of comfort, right?
You still can go back to your saved comp in Fusion, change it and render it out again, with the disadvantage of importing it back manually.
Is there anything I missed?

Don't think you missed something

Fusion Connect also allows several versions inside the same clip.

You can create and navigate through this versions from inside Resolve without reimporting or relinking.

That's a big advantage if you render compositions in offline/online quality or with several languages, for example.

Thanks for your feedback.

In the end, like what was suggested, I imported the base clip into Resolve, created a Fusion linked clip, then I copied and pasted the nodes in from my Fusion only save.

It would be great to be able to directly import a Fusion into a Resolve project as a Fusion connected clip, but copy and pasting it in isn't too much trouble in the absence of such a functionality.

I would like to add that you can get Fusion to render sort of a quick version of the comp using background render and enabling High Quality Render in the Composition and in the Saver node. Someone has done a tutorial on it, but I can't find it at the moment. I don't have Fusion at work, but when I will go home I will take a couple of screenshots to explain how to do it.
