Or am I still missing it? I don't think I understand your explanation of how it's working in Avid.


Ctrl_PgUp swaps the monitors and timeline and makes no distinction between if you are on the working timeline or the one you loaded up into the source. The playhead is still red.

Furtermore this only works with timelines, it doesn't even function with clips loaded into the source.

In the most simplistic way to describe this lol
- Resolve does not allow you to only swap the timeline view of source/record.
- The current Ctrl+PgUp function only works with timelines and not clips.. while also not making a clear distinction with the play head as it remains red.

on another note.
I'm looking for this setting Walter is talking about.. but can't seem to find it.

Okay, I think I get it now. Sort of. Walter is (I think) referring to the shortcut "q" which toggles keyboard and playback focus between source and viewer, which (I gather) won't work when source and viewer are ganged. Which may not be quite what you wanted(?)

Nope, lol.

Q just changes "focus" between source and record. It's as if you were just clicking on the monitors with a mouse.

I'm requesting the ability to just change the timeline to show what is the source (left) or record (right) monitors.

Ctrl+PgUp sort of does this, but it swaps the monitors and the timeline together.
- It only works with Timlelines, not clips
- Does not have a distinction between what it is (ie source or record)

A few items:

1) In the color page, when user clicks on any clip - be it in the timeline or clips window, playhead jumps to 1st frame of clip. That's fine when paging through clips one after the other, but when working with stacked clips for compositing, it's a serious bummer.

I would like either a user preference or keyboard modifier to keep the playhead in the same place on the timeline when switching stacked clips. Resolve has the info - i.e. where the playhead is on the timeline - so that should be cake.

2) Access to the layer mode & opacity controls for each clip from the colour page.

Quite often with cgi heavy stuff I request all the passes (ambient, amb occ, diffuse, specular, shadow, etc...) and stack them with layer modes on the timeline. This allows me to fine-tune in realtime with playback for client sessions. Currently doing that requires jumping back and forth between edit and color.

3) It would be HUUUGE for me to be able to pop back and forth between a compound clip and its contents from the colour page, that way I can do overall colour on the compound clip, jump into the contents and grade individual layers in the comp, then jump back out and tweak overall colour, etc...

Really useful for this kind of workflow, and the time it would save during client sessions would really be appreciated.


thanks (for now) !

Feature request:
With every new upgrade of resolve, the installation puts 2 new icons on the Desktop (Windows):
One is 'Davinci Resolve Project Saver' linked to "C:\Program Files\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Resolve.exe" -ps.
The second is 'Resolve' linked to "C:\Program Files\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Resolve.exe".

The very same icons, linked to the very same file, were on the Desktop before, from the previous version. The icons from the previous version are now greyed and so is the 'Resolve' icon on the Task bar. One needs to manually delete the previous icons from the Desktop and empty the Recycle Bin, unpin the 'Resolve' icon from the Task bar and pin again the new one. Tedious and unnecessary.

It would be much better if Resolve installation file would at least ask the user whether one wants to create icons on the Desktop, or not.

Working on a Mac when transferring files from an external hard drive or USB stick onto my computer. I can’t eject them whilst Resolve is running. I need to shut down Resolve, eject the disk and then start up Resolve again which is a colossal time waster.

It's such a simple and useful feature in other NLE's and I can't believe my beloved Davinci Resolve doesn't have it. While the Media page offers several options for sorting thumbnails, I wish it would also allow me to sort/arrange them manually; dragging them on the page to create an assembly that could then just be copied or dragged directly to the timeline. I realize that clips can already be sorted once in the timeline but it's a hassle to do. The manually sort method is more intuitive and time-saving.

To this I would add, the ability to manually (and effortlessly) order any data in the Media pool, at any level, whether bins or clips. The current somewhat limited ability to move bins manually ("user" option) has always been frustrating, with the interface often fighting against or forcing hierarchy changes.

Timeline Zoom/Scrub without Alt or Option key press.

I was fighting with what I thought was a bug with Windows 10 and Resolve not zooming on the Timeline by using the Alt Key and Mouse Wheel. Tech Support told me that they were not experiencing the issue, but I was finding it on three different Windows 10 computer.

Final, I discovered that the action depends on where the cursor is sitting.

Cursor on the clip, Alt (Option) - Scroll Wheel = Zoom.

Cursor on the Timeline Indicator, Alt (Option) - Scroll Wheel = Scrub Timeline.

Suggestion - What is they just got rid of the Alt/Option key press requirement and just made it where you place the cursor?

The most important feature I would like to see is that the color page nodes act the same as the Fusion node page.

The node area of fusion is so much kinder to large comps, where as the color page node area quickly feels full with just a few nodes. This is something I have wanted change from the very beginning of Resolve, as I came from Autodesk Smoke, the node area was always very expansive. And I noticed that Fusion has a very robust and elegant way of dealing with large comps in the node area.

If we could get a shortcut to
"open the next clip from bin in the source-viewer"
that would be a great way to go through all of your footage in the edit page and making selects.

Subtitle track style.

Save track style to be able to recall for new timelines or projects. Instead of having to manually recreate the desired style each time.

Hello,

I have a few ideas. I use Resolve to generate dailies on set.

1.) Freeing up Program - I would love to see Resolve freed up when you're exporting. Because I use Resolve to generate dailies, I typically have many timelines. I would love the ability to use the program while renders are happening. Once you hit the "Start Render" button, any timelines you have in the queue could (and should) be temporarily locked, until all renders are completed. I know performance will be knocked down.

2.) Changing the default naming convention in exporting stills from the Gallery. The default is "Untitled". I would love the ability to change the default...for example, in my case it would be to "Stills Album", but another useful name could be "Source Filename" or "Timeline Name" or "Reel Name". Anything would be better than "Untitled".

3.) Automating stills exports - I would love the ability to export all stills in a project by right clicking the folder(s) and selecting something like "Export all stills". I typically have anywhere from 3 to 15 stills per folder, and 10 to 30 folders. I get carpel tunnel going through each folder, selecting all stills, right clicking "Export", deleting "Untitled" and replacing it with the folder name, selecting .jpeg, setting the target, then hitting export. If I could selecting all the folders at once and do an Export All with default name being the Folder name, I would d be in heaven.

That's all I have. Thank you!

Would love this at least as an option in preferences. It's how Vegas has always worked. If they could improve the zooming that would be great too. Vegas is so darn smooth and easy to move around the timeline. Resolve is somewhat clunky in comparison.

Re: NLE Timeline Options

PostWed Feb 13, 2019 4:56 pm

I'm gonna take another stab at the viewing options and add some things I think would help with the timeline.

1. Toggle Timeline view between Program Monitor and Source Monitor

timeline.png
timeline.png (329.76 KiB) Viewed 543 times


If we were able to view the source monitor in the timeline viewer we could be able to scrub and pinpoint our In/Outpoints with ease instead of performing this task in the monitor. Swap Timeline and Source Viewer only works when a timeline is loaded into the source and it is also a bit convoluted. The monitors do not need to be swapped. Only the timeline itself. When the timeline swap occurs, just changing the color of the play head would simply indicate "hey your looking at what is in your source now"

2. The Track Selection and Lock (RED) is in the middle of the track options. If this was on the level as the track name OR pushed over to the far right close to the timeline it would make selecting these options a lot faster. Whenever we're in a crunch it's nice to have this option more... easily accessible.

3. The Track patching (YELLOW) is a bit convoluted to be displayed this way. I understand it, but it would make a bit more sense to have this in a column by itself to the left of the actual timeline tracks. It wouldn't take up much screen real estate to do so. When you have something loaded with multiple tracks it makes patching more difficult in this current state.

4. Would it be possible to add track sync locks? I have a general feeling this is possible a different way, maybe there is a resolve way I'm unaware of, but that would be nice to have. Locking the track.. Kind of? has the similar effect but it's not the same.

5. Can scaling the waveform without scaling the audio track be a possibility? I understand the waveform right now displays dynamically in relation to it's decibel level, but it would be nice to increase the waveform size without having to increase the track size. It allows searching for audio ques a lot easier.
5a. To caveat on the audio track waveform display.. It displays in one direction. Would it be possible to make it a setting so it sits mid track and shows the waveform going in a bidirectional manor, since this is how wave forms are generally displayed?

Going to end with a question....

What's the setting to splice timeline A into timeline B and not have timeline A be collapsed (nested)?

Output different elements of a fusion comp with separate output nodes and import them as separate input nodes in the color page to grade the elements separately and recombine them with a layer mixer in the edit page.
Alternatively show all the merge outputs (from the fusion page) in the timeline view in the color page so that they can be graded separately that way.

Update: first suggestion actually does work, but it is more complicated then it needs to be. For example you need to mask an element that has a transparent background or it will think the background is black instead of transparent.

You don't need to load a timeline into the Source Monitor. Just open both that timeline and the one you're editing into.

No, that's not what he's talking about. It's actually an interesting suggestion: the ability to view whatever's in the source viewer, whether clip or timeline, on a timeline proper without actually swapping what appears in either viewer. It's just a graphical aide, to see the source material in a larger and more flexible display, for review and selection, which just happens to be the timeline interface. It's as if you could ask to system to give you a secondary timeline, to view linearly what's in the source monitor.

It could prove to be a great convenience.

- in timeline keyframes navigation like tracker windows, keyframe by keyframe
- On the slider on the bottom of the viewer, display keyframes for the node selected,
like the marker on the slider on the bottom of the viewer in edit, and color for keyframe actived or not actived.

This is exactly what I am talking about. The other requests kind of revolve around this. I'll use a clip for now but for instance (or an example):

Once this view option is added you can audition a multi-track clip on the timeline from the source side and decide on which tracks you want to splice in. Then via my #3 be able to patch those tracks to their desired destination on the timeline with more ease. Possibly in a whip/line function like connecting nodes. It's visually easier than dragging tracks around.Then with track sync locks #4 you would be able to insert the track(s) in with or without effecting certain tracks. If the /track selection/lock/(newly added) tracks sync lock selectors were further to the right #2, this process would also be more streamlined.

The ability to scale waveforms and have them bi-directional is purely cosmetic as well, but it would help auditioning a multi-track clip easier without having to scale.. Let's say 8 tracks of audio. In this new view option, of course.

I asked a question, which I think may have been over looked because of tabbed and stacked timelines, but is there a way to splice a timeline into another one without having it collapsed (nested). throwing a timeline up in the source and slapping the entire thing down on the timeline un-nested is a lot faster than stacking timelines and box selecting or shift selecting all the clips to click and drag... In my opinion. If there is no way, I guess I will force myself to the longer way, ha!

There's an option in the drop-down Edit menu, "decompose compound clips on edit", or something like that. Select it. I think there used to be dragging modifier which did the same thing, but I don't see it now.

The ability to specify a separate file path for Optimized Media.

That way, when not connected to a large/fast disk array, my high bit-rate ProresXQ media doesn't have to be read then cached to the same drive when using things that are disk and processor heavy like temporal NR or other OFX that work better when caching is enabled.

It just seems like having both the cache and OM in the same location is just asking for a HDD bottleneck, and defeats the purpose of having media on a separate drive as your cache like in all other NLE's and creative software.

Thank you!

Hi,

please add the ability to select and mix different audio-angles in a mulitcam sequence.

I want to adjust and mix different Mic-angles seperately...

The following video discribes the problem perfectly.

On 15, the render presets don't save the render destination with the preset. I'm on a movie and want to do one set of renders for dailies with a LUT to the Dailies folder and then render out some proxies for the editor without the lut in a Proxies folder. I just ran the two render jobs back to back picking my preset for each, and the 2nd render job burned over the first job because the destination didn't switch with the preset. Grrr.

When saving a custom render preset, please allow the destination to be saved with it.

PostTue Feb 19, 2019 9:36 pm

I would like to be able to see a visual representation of all the FONT styles when making a title and click on the drop-down list of available fonts. Not sure why this has been left out of the software.

I wouldn't expect it to, as presets are frequently used to export to many different folders. It'd be a right pain having to change that destination every time I clicked a preset. Whereas now you only need to change the destination when you need it changed.

In that case, you're better off leaving them out of the multicam. Use only cameras with multicam, add the audio underneath.

Go to the Working Folders section of the Master Settings tab in the Project Settings.

Yes but at the moment it present a random last location.

I think that is the problem. Multicam audio is so broken that you are better off not to use it.

Really hoping this gets overhauled in the next version. Lack of proper working multi-cam audio is a real detriment to professional editing workflows.

That wasn't really my thinking behind the suggestion. I recommend leaving separate audio out of the multicam so that it's easier to access when mixing. That would remain true even if multicam creation were fixed.

I haven't seen that behavior here. It always sticks for me. I only need to change it once with each new project.

Wouldn't a better system be that you could mix with the multicam audio? Keeping audio separate through the process is not a valid professional editorial workflow.

I don't think so. You'd essentially be mixing inside the multiacm clip. I think it's better not do that.
