#WowJustWOW
Exa-a-actly right. I hereby reiterate yesterday's posted "Feature Request" (sic) that an immediate fix and standard be set in place among Resolve application programmers and GUI designers, for *always* providing visual feedback [flashing cursor within a faded text field] to Resolve users who click within an editable [Timecode, or any other] *editable* text field.

Mr. Chamberlain, as a relative newcomer, I've observed this absolutely needs to become part of the process improvement culture amongst Resolve's programmers/GUI designers IMHO:

Let's reduce the number of unintentionally "hidden" features in Resolve, and instead, make them conspicuous so they are much more readily apparent and accessible to users merely poking around and experimenting in the GUI, without reading the manual.

There are in fact, quitea a number of instances, for example where features are ghosted out in their respective menu, yet, they actually are functional.

The process tree that's in place for Resolve development either needs to be adhered to -- or improved, and that's evident in the hordes of conflicts we constantly have to wade through and re-interpret while reading the Resolve Users Manual.

Thanks for Listening.

Oh yeah? OK John I'll bite:
Kindly explain what *kind* of [visual] feedback exists, in*any* Timecode Text Field in Resolve (be sure to mention Resolve version number), after a user either clicks -- or even *double* clicks within a Timecode Text Field? IOW, what does the feedback look like? It must be conspicuously hidden in version 14.3, so curious minds would like to know... ;-)

About Optimizing Media: Functional Requirements
1. The name of the generated optimized media can be stored in the defined directory just like the material name.
2. You can enable or disable this optimized media at any time.
3. You can link optimized media generated from other computers to my material instead of regenerating it.
About Render Cache: Functional Requirements
1, When you add footage to the timeline, the generated rendering cache after the footage does not disappear.
2. When an error operation is cancelled, the rendering cache can be undone, instead of disappearing.
3. Render caches are generated automatically only in the timeline visible range.

I'd like resizable popup windows where applicable. I know... "don't use a laptop". But sometimes you have to and there are a number of windows in Resolve that can't be resized or where all the content can't even be viewed.
  • The Project Server window
  • Fairlight - Format Assign
  • Fairlight - Link Group
  • Fairlight - Patch Input/Output
In the Fairlight windows mentioned above you can't even see the Cancel/OK buttons! That's on a 13" MacBook Pro. The Edit and Color pages work fine though.

EDIT PAGE:

Hold left click over the playhead an drag up and down = Zoom in / zoom out with focus con playhead cursor

Mousewheel over empty time line or ruler = Zoom in / Zoom Out focused on position of arrow cursor

Mousewheel + Ctrl over empty time line = Vertical Size of channels

Just try this and you see how fast improve workflow

Feature Request : Text Panel

what I need / want : a window that I can load a .txt. pdf or docx file into. might be a script, might be change notes, whatever. either way I need to reference an external text doc and flipping between another app and R is time consuming. it should be a standard feature of every NLE and no idea why it isn't. thats especially the case when both your screens are taken over by your NLE app.

Prem Pro had the story window but killed it.

there are tons of open source code options so its not like this would be a build it from scratch thing for reading the various file formats.

if I can edit txt and save it thats a bonus, but if its read only, and all you can do is scroll, that would totally be great. please !

as V2 of this feature sure. something like script sync would easily be a cycle or two on its own. I'd MUCH rather have a simple window I could load and scroll text docs into right now, or in the next release because doing it is a LOT less time to write & debug. I'd rather see a simple text window read more file formats than wait a couple years for script sync to show up which would be of limited use to a small set of users.

To expand, I am also using 3rd party remapping and macro software. But without that, just much more customization keyboard short cuts and remapping.

For example if I want my mouse scroll to zoom a timeline.

It's not going to reduce hardware sales. Its likely to make the software more usable which leads to more hardware purchases.

Replace clip functionality beyond what already exists. F11

For example right click on a file, or clip, or other and choose replace. Then choose a file from a file browser.

Also replace clip functionality that exists in most other editors and compositors. Dragging a file from the media window onto the clip while holding some kind of modifier key.

I am constantly getting updated comps and i need to replace them and not have to use the clunky F11 replace clip functionality.

+1

and a few ones:

- separate render window/app/or whatever BMD will calling it, will be usefull. With powerfull enough machine, I can start render project(s) and go back to start/finish another project while render is in progress. I'm doing this all the time in Premiere - edit while Media encoder do the render, without wasting the time to wait for render to finish. But, because of Resolve's philosophy to put few apps in the same "house" solution may be an option to Deliver page can be independent, so I can go back and start new project while rendering is in progress in Deliver page.
- less aggressive and much precise snapping (when snapping is selected) in edit page, especially when timeline is zoomed out
- some kind of indicator of timeline in edit page so I could know where I'm with the edit in the timeline. Or small window with some representation of whole timeline and position of the playhead like Premiere 6.5 (in old days) had. When I have large (long) timeline, I must always look at the time in the window which is disstractive. Graphical representation takes less time to see where I am right now in the timeline than looking at the time or timecode.

- right now I'm in Resolve 14 and if clips are not selected, "alt+t" does nothing. If "selection follows playhead" is selected, only one clip is automatically selected and "alt+t" puts default transition on both sides of that (selected) clip, and that is totally unusefull. I don't need transition at the beggining and at the end of the one clip. I need transiotion at the cut, between two clips. Premiere have much better solution - with "ctrl+d" it puts default transition between clips when playhead is near enough to the cut, even when timeline playback is in progress. Resolve should implement the same or something similar, because it is very good and timesaving solution.
- playhead should move along with the clip, i.e. to stay at the same position relative to the clip (and not relative to time, like it does now) when I do ripple delete. Of course, when playhead is at the right side of the gap. When it is at the left side of the gap it won't move, because left side is not moving when I do ripple delete :)
- option to resize preview window in Edit page, because sometimes I need it bigger than program window and sometime I need it smaller.

How about “show current clip without sizing” while we are at it

Or all three variables (handles, speed changes, sizing) could be combined into “show as source with handles”

Shift up + show handles on the panel?

Shape, tracking, the ability to use the inside OR the outside of the shape for tracking.

Two examples: of i do a gradient in the sky, from top to bottom, often there is nothing to track in the sky.

If i draw a shape in a live tv, i need to track the outside room, not the content of the tv.

then move it back and resize to what i want to change (sky)
same with the tv, track the edge, then move/resize the window, usualy i don't want more than the edge of the mon, tracking something with different z depth is problematic

+1 and ability to replace audio tracks which was in previous post. FWIW, a couple months ago I had clips with audio that needed some TLC - noise reduction, leveling as sound guy was, um, a foul up. It was easy enough to process the audio in any number of apps, but to replace the fixed sound back into the original clips ?

any number of apps couldn't do it. in the end, I brought the fixed audio + original media into resolve, synced the new audio up, removed the old audio and then did a render to individual clips. this worked because R kept clip metadata like original TC in tact. THANK YOU GUYS FOR THAT !

so yes my grading app is now my audio fix it utiliity app !

Hi everyone,
Thank you for such a great upgrade that make me think to switch to Resolve for my video jobs. However, three things come to my mind right away:
1. MUlTI CAMERA sound syncing. Especially when you have many shots from many cameras and you need them to sync all at once. AP for instance creates many sequences alphabetically.
2. COLOR MARKING of DUPLICATED frames on a timeline. Something like old FCP used to have or AP.
3. PNG image seq export.

I would love some way to have an icon show on the thumbnail of a piece of media if that piece of media has been used in a timeline in the project (and even an option to show the icon only for the currently active timeline). Let's call it a the "used icon".

So, the options would be:-

Display used icon when used in current timeline.
Display used icon when used in any timeline in current project.
Do not display used icon.

I know I can flag media manually, but the problem with that is then it displays flags all over my timeline, which is distracting. Also, the amount of time this takes really adds up over 600 clips or so when covering an event.

After a clip marker is created, users ought to be able to drag it left-to-right and see in real-time, the marker position update -- during the dragging operation (both, in terms of source time code by default, and optionally, by the source frame number).

The current scenario in Resolve Studio 14.3 is counter-intuitive, forcing users to grope in the dark for workarounds, like employing the play bar and "bug-prone" timecode overlay before knowingly parking the clip marker where we want.

Implement "merged" instead of "linked" clips, like in Premiere. "Merged" clips have the audio channels fully integrated and behave like "real" clips in all situations.
