A % variable for "timeline name"

Very useful for version control.

The exported file can take it's name from the timeline so a % variable is possible.

If you have a timeline in the source window and also visible in a stacked timeline, it would be a nice feature to be able to see and position a source playhead in the timeline.

The current H.265 export option offers only 8 bit 4:2:0 encoding, even at 4K res and HDR on.

I think both 10 bit and 4:2:2 should be user selectable options here, especially when creating 4K rec.2020 HDR exports.

Dual Monitor configuration for secondary displays that are on the right of the main display, not just the left. Or allow us to rearrange the configuration of the panels in the UI, so that we can fix it ourselves and have a more efficient dual monitor layout (no, I am not rearranging my entire workspace).

It would be nice to be able to see recorded frame rate of R3D files in resolve. I see project time base in editing metadata and lots of other info but not record frame rate. I need to go to redcine-x for that.

Though it would be even nicer if it was in Resolve 15 future update :)

Proxy mode: full resolution when not playing

PostSat Feb 02, 2019 12:43 am

REQUEST: When the Playback Proxy Mode is set to Half or Quarter Resolution, once the Playback is stopped show on the viewer and the Cinema screen the corresponding still frame at Full Resolution. Currently at 15.2.2 the frame is shown at half/quarter resolution when there is no playback, refreshing the still image to a full resolution won't hurt the system performance .

Drag and drop reordering of audio and video tracks. Currently you have to right click on the track header and choose move track up/down. These is very tedious when you have multiple tracks that you would like to move.

Ability to zoom in/out of the timeline using the mouse wheel without having to click the alt key.

At least on Windows the current h.265 encoding options are completely dependant on the encoder capabilities in your GPU.

Source/Record Timeline and Track patching

PostSat Feb 02, 2019 9:21 pm

Being able to toggle the timeline between source and record is probably the biggest speed factor for me when offline editing. The use of this with track patching is by far the #1 factor why myself and a few others I know can't leave Media Composer entirely. Using the Source Monitor for showing wave forms is nice, but when you are using it to build a complex offline with other scenes or timelines etc, tabbed timelines doesn't do the justice.

I'm not in the business of trying to make the NLE of Resolve more like Avid, but over the course of many years and every single NLE known to man, it's a core reason why I still offline on Avid.

I tip my hat to the Dev team though, I've dropped every other NLE out there. Resolve is definitely my go to now when not on a big show.

Can't wait for it to be the only tool. Keep up the great work.

You can tab between then (q? Not sure) and I know that you can swap with a keystroke source with destination, plus load entire timelines in the source.

I'll try to be a bit more descriptive, my apologies if it was vague.

Yes, in resolve you can load sequences into the source and splice them into the timeline, but what I am referring to is actually swapping the actual timeline between the source and the "record" side. I'm trying to really not compare Resolve to Avid, but it really drives down my point I said before.... Forgive me.

You have the option in MC to toggle the actual timeline between the source timeline and record timeline. The record timeline shows the playhead in blue, while the source timeline shows the play head in green.

I believe this is a strengthening request for Resolve as it allows for greater and more importantly pinpointed control over anything loaded into the source monitor instead of scrubbing through the tiny window of the source. Also it allows you to pick what tracks or portions you want from the source and splice that into the timeline.

It is extremely helpful when producers are let's say.. "Can you take this section of v2 and put it there in v3?"

You can load that sequence into the source, toggle the timeline over, mark the clip you want or even a full section of the source timeline and then splice it (The specific blocks or in to out) right onto your timeline on whatever tracks you wan them to land on.

I could make a gif of what I'm referring to.

What I really would like to is the have an option to disable the playhead from snapping while scrubbing.

This is a very awkward behavior

It is ok for the clips, while you are moving them around, to snap to other clips - and to the playhead as well. But when you are moving the playhead itself we should be able to disable the snapping.

Something like a right-click menu on the snapping icon with different parameters would be quite nice...

Clip Snap : ON
Playhead Snap : OFF

This might seem like a little detail , but trust me I'm sure that for quite a few of us this breaks the organic feeling we are use to having on other NLE, and it becomes quite frustrating after a while ...

Please you guys it would be very nice if you could integrate this feature !

For the moment this is the very thing, and maybe the Deliver module (I still have some testing to do) that prevents me for making the move altogether from PPro the the Resolve platform for my video production company....

First feature request:

Have the ability to stop playback in either of the viewer windows, by simply re-clicking the play button. In other words, if I click on any of the play buttons (forward or reverse) and the media begins to play, I should only have to click that same play button to stop the playback. Don't make me move my mouse over to the stop button to click that to stop the playback.

Thank you,

Does your GPU support 10-bit h.265 encoding? If not Resolve won't show the 10-bit option.

100% agree. I would love to have proper Track patching and Avid like source/record timeline switch.

I really don't understand why other NLEs have not copied this from Avid. In so many ways Avid is years behind Resolve (and I guess FCP and Premiere), but the Track patching and source/record timeline are still unsurpassed.

It's not like it would be technologically complicated to copy these functions, but I guess that Blackmagic is calculating that most users are coming from FCP and Premiere and are more used to their way of doing things.

It would be interesting to hear from Blackmagic what their rational is.

In my book, get the best features of each NLE and then innovate with your own features too. People will get used to whatever you implement as long as it genuinely helps speed things up.

I think Blackmagic is doing a truly amazing job. If they implemented this little feature, I think I would switch to Resolve for good.

Please do. There's a function (ctrl-pgup) for swapping the source timeline and the "actual" timeline, which gives you the full space of the timeline interface to work in (rather than just the source window), but that doesn't sound like what you're after. Or is it?

Of course, you can also stack timelines and copy/paste between them. Using the full-screen timeline option, the area is large.

I know a lot of people ask for a full screen preview on 2nd monitor. That would be nice, but what I really want is the ability to pop panels of the UI and drag them onto a 2nd monitor.
This is possible with the scopes panel, but nothing else. I feel this is such a useful and important part of workflow.

Is it possible to send only the scopes panel from the Color page within Resolve itself, without third party hardware or software? (I was told on this forum that not, I couldn't check it since I don't have a second monitor yet).

I still think a mass email notification would work the best. Maybe when you register to download the software have a checkbox to put your email address in the update notification database (not checking the box keeps you off the database or deletes your email from it if you’re already on it).

I think a big one to draw over more motion graphic artist to add some shape and trim path tools to Fusion to make it easier to animate lines growing, shrinking, etc. Another one for us CG guys would be an easier way to apply multiple UV maps to a single 3D model and to update the renderer to using PBR instead of the old scanline renderer. Those would make for some great updates!

I would like the ability to store most often used clips, transitions, effects, sound, music, parameters movements, Keyframes. luts... all in a separate folder to ce used on any timeline.

That makes more sense. Thanks.

It was the wording that confused me. I would consider those two different timelines, one reflecting the Program Monitor, one reflecting the Source monitor, with the user being able to switch between timelines in the same panel.

So I wouldn't call it toggling the timeline, you're toggling the panel view.

Having said that, I do believe stacked timelines serves the identical purpose. You can change the timeline you're looking at with the drop down, or have both open and switch between them with a single click.

The mechanical process may be slightly different, but the capabilities are the same. I'd consider this a done.

I think both Resolve and Premiere Pro make this available through the ability to open multiple timelines simultaneously. You don't need to load one into the Source Monitor, just open it and switch between timelines.

In fact, I think Resolve and Premiere Pro's implementation are more useful than Avid's as you can open many timelines simultaneously, not just Source and Record.

Since they haven't, maybe it's time to request frameserver output in Resolve again. Like named pipes where we can write directly to encoders in ffmpeg.

Myself and the other operator above are not referring to being able to open multiple timelines. You can do that in MC as well via the source/record drop down. It's the same thing as having tabbed timelines, it just doesn't take up screen real estate.

I'm going to check this one method in resolve mentioned above, maybe by you? but instead of making a gif, I think I may just record a short video and post it to vimeo or youtube to share here so the Dev team can maybe get a better idea of what I am referring to.

It's not a matter of switching between timelines. I understand that, and I think other NLEs do hammer this down, but the speed and percision of what MC allows far beyond surpasses the rest of the field.

It's quite literally one of the two reasons why I still use MC for offline. lol

I LOVE RESOLVE though as an entire studio package, and eventually it will surely become my #1

That would be helpful, but you do want to try ctrl-pgup for swapping source/record timelines, and also stacked timelines using the full screen timeline option, which opens up lots of space, for displaying multiple tracks of two timelines simultaneously, with free paste/copy between them.

Of course, if Avid still does it better, everyone wants to know.... I can't remember, so a video would certainly be helpful.

the Ctrl+PageUp function just swaps what's in the Record side with the source and so on. I do admit the stacked timelines function is neat and actually great for review, no doubt about that. This is a little different though. Stacked timelines (to the best of my knowledge) needs you to select all the clips and drag them over to where you want them to go. I'm referring to just loading up a timeline and selecting I/O and splicing it right in via a patch monitoring to what tracks. The patching function seems a bit off in Resolve as it just covers the track, and not a side by side.

It's also great for when you load clips into your source side. you are allowed to really get a closer look at everything especially audio waveforms without having to do it in the monitor

Now you've got me confused. After you bring up the source timeline, then what? It sounded from your text as if you can freely swap material between the two. But the video is silent on what happens next, or the advantages of this approach over swapping source/record as ctrl-pgup allows.

Would love to see a way to remove objects easier than it is now. The patch tool in the color panel or fusion are complicated. Tracking never works right. It is really time consuming to remove something from any shot that is moving. Maybe someday we will have something so easy as the tools in photoshop to remove.
Right now it is a long and frustrating process.

You are able to load anything into the source monitor and splice it right into the record (nothing ground breaking about it) but what it allows is the ability to toggle the actual timeline to whatever is in the source.

Ctrl+PgUp isn't swapping the timeline "view" of one or the other, it is effectively swapping the entire source into the record along with the timeline . It doesn't function as if you are swapping just the timeline view..

You can't Ctrl+PgUp and then mark in and out and patch the tracks over to overwrite because you just loaded it into the record itself.

Make sense?

Press "q", it should swap the focus between the destination monitor and the source monitor, both in controls and monitor output.

Only gotcha or does not work if "link destination and source" is on, and that is really frustrating.

But you can.... Hit cltr+pgup to load the timeline in the source viewer into the main timeline interface Mark the section you want to patch into the actual timeline. hit Ctrl+pgup again, to bring back the working timeline. Then find the insertion point and f9 or f10. Too cumbersome?

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