Question about (R)

PostThu May 21, 2020 10:40 pm

Color page
Menu View [timeline thumbnail info] —> Version

Occasionally I see (R) on a clip... what does means? I don’t have the remote grading on on that clip (or any for that matter)

The badge you get when multiple clips are removed color linked.
Not sure why those handful of clips defaulted to Remote grading.... probably fat finger...

If by red badge you are referring to the indicator below the clip opposite to the (R)...

You would get a red badge if you have different instances of the same clip on your timeline as long as they are the same version of the grade. Once you create a new version, it goes away.

It's just a reminder that whatever you do to that grade is affecting other clips as well.

Clips 92 and 94 are the same clip but different grade versions, so no indicator.

I'm with Walter: I never use Remote Grading and actually think it's dangerous. And a couple of times I've slipped and activated it, resulting in death, destruction, and despair.

I concede there are very good (and specific) situations where Remote Grading could be useful, and I know reality/doco people who use it specifically when they do an interview-heavy show and just want to grade each interview shot once. That way, they can get through (say) 800 shots in 8 hours.

My choice would be to use a big panel and lots of memory stills, but there is a point where you forget WTF memory that Person X is in, vs. Person A and Person B. Another method is to use C-mode timeline sort, and then all the similar timecodes and sources get bunched together. I think that's more useful than Remote Grading... but only if it's from camera original files.

I couldn't say enough good things about remote grading and never have had an instance where it got destructive... But I'm always aware that I'm using it.

For me this is one of the great features or Resolve.

I guess everyone has their preferred way of working.

In certain projects, I'v also found C-mode useful to kind of put myself on the DP and Director's frame of mind... This way I might get some insight on how they approached the lighting throughout different times and locations.

I also tend to click the 'show common media source clip' command, which would be kind of a more focused C-mode.

There's another instance in which remote grades are very useful in my workflow, but I know this only applies to me and is not practical for most scenarios... Since I grade my own films, I can start my grading process really early in the editing process and every time I get an edit update, it will conform to the already corrected clips.
