I stopped using resolve for a few months due to the natural ebb and flow of our work. Now working on several projects in Mac 8.2 - and I can't seem to get the correct setup for the 're-grade.'
If I recall correctly, it used to be that after re-assembling a sequence in FCP using XML exported from Resolve, if you then went BACK to resolve and re-graded and re-rendered a single shot, that shot would pop into your sequence - just like it does with color. But now I'm getting that re-graded shot as a separate render and having to re-cut it into my sequence.
Am I remembering this incorrectly? What's the trick to force the render to replace the shot it's... well, replacing?
Sure, except that's not working. The new render has a new name, instead of replacing the old one. I feel like there's some switch or something I'm missing here, because I know it worked in 8.0 - (which could just be a coincidence.) if I de-select 'render clip with unique filename' it makes a horrendous mess, of course, though that would, on the surface seem to be the solution.
Resolve provides a bunch on options in the Render tab. If you're importing an FCP7 XML, it'll default to a FCP easy setup, which may not be what you want if you just want to reconnect. Sometimes a regular "Source" render is better for certain situations, but may require more rendering.
