Welcome to the Official Blackmagic Forum.

We have created this forum to allow people to communicate with each other and to learn and get advice from some of the wonderfully talented people who work in the television and film industries and take the time to post here.

We really want this forum to be respectful and friendly, so we have created some rules in the registration process to protect these forums from trolls and product vs product fights etc. While some people think fights on forums are entertaining, my feeling is what's better is a place that eliminates fights and just focuses on people helping each other to become more creative.

I think there is enough fighting and hate in the world, so lets just have the creativity here! Thats what we are trying to do.

I hope you can all help us achieve that. I hope you can use the knowledge posted here on these forums to save time and money and to learn more every day. After all its constant learning that makes life exciting.

Word up, Grant.

And I'm glad to see they've unleashed you in your forums. :o

Thanks Grant, I'm delighted to be here!

I'm new to da Vinci Resolve and am working on a MacPro platform.

So many of us love the art of color grading which is way cool.

Some of the less fun parts seem to be grappling with transcoding, conforming and reconforming issues.

Do you like the idea of a portion of this forum being specially entitled "Transcoding"?

That seems to be where so many of the thorny issues arise, and some dedicated support from Blackmagic, perhaps in the form of a "Troubleshooting Codec Issues FAQ" would, I think, likely boost member participation and enthusiasm.

Adobe has a very nice user community they have established for their various products. Perhaps we could go there and "borrow" some of their clever ideas in community building? :)

Just a thought.

I look forward to learning the beautiful and legendary software!
