Scopes for Resolve?
on Mar 8, 2012 at 7:37:38 pm

I am happy that Resolve Lite is free. And it's working with my Instensity Extreme just fine on the iMac. What are my options for video scopes? A color correction app without scopes is pretty, well, bizarre. Do the paid versions of Resolve have scopes built in?

Resolve has a pretty non-intuitive user interface. In the Color screen, all 4 scopes are available by right-clicking on the clip (RGB Parade, Vectorscope, Histogram and Waveform).

The scopes are definitely there.. gotta right click to bring em up. floating windows, as many as you want. That said, software scopes are not that reliable and if going to broadcast i'd peep em out on real hardware scopes before delivery.

Of course, you could buy a Blackmagic Ultrascope which will work perfectly for you, but you would have to spend about $660 for the Ultrascope, and I am sure that is too much money for you. Because you want it for free.

There is also the spew scopebox 3.0 which can use any old BlackMagic card. Of course you'd have to run that on a seperate machine, just like you would for the ultrascope.

Does ultra scope work with HDMI? Where do I right click to see the software scopes? I don't do much broadcast. I'm a corporate guy mostly. A local commercial here or there or something for local PBS. Never could stomach color, but DaVinci is wonderful so far. The round tripping is the way things should be. You can practically edit in the thing. In fact, I'd welcome some DaVinci edit app.

Hi Bret -
the Ultrascope is HD-SDI only, but these days, a HDMI to HD-SDI converter is only $295, so it's easy to get this into Ultrascope.

Too rich for my blood. If I can start making money with it, sure. But right now I'm just goofing around learning the app. Happy as heck to get to learn Reslove for free though!

Go to the COLOR screen and then right click on the clip displayed in the top left of the screen. You'll see a bunch of check boxes for each scope. It would be better if they docked somewhere or maybe I'm too stupid to figure out how to do that.

Decent scopes. I need to get that other 27" display so I can park them over there. :) Or maybe my old 20" acer will do.
