So I am a total newbie to this world. Not really, but in colour grading I still am. I study film still and i'm working on my Final Year Project footage from my 5D.
Before I have done the simple Grinder to FCP7 adding filters then into nuendo.
But now I want to make it a bit more serious. Problem is, that I am so fresh for using external grading software.
What is the workflow? Is there a roundtrip back to FCP for export? How do I work towards Nuendo after? And if I want to crop it into 2.35:1 is there a way to make matte's "stick" through a XML/EDL export?
I am sorry if this question has already be answered, but when I searched I only found explanations for more advanced ones.

I'll answer some of your questions quickly. But a lot of this is covered in the manual. It's not huge and I would recommend referring to that.
[Carl Nenzen Loven]"What is the workflow? Is there a roundtrip back to FCP for export?"
Yes, XML out from FCP, will reference your source media. Hopefully you haven't burned in any looks yet. Roundtrip back can be done with XML back to fcp. This is covered in the manual.
[Carl Nenzen Loven]"How do I work towards Nuendo after? "
You're going to spilt up your work into audio and video. Resolve doesn't do anything to your audio, you want to send to Nuendo directly from your locked cut.
[Carl Nenzen Loven]"And if I want to crop it into 2.35:1 is there a way to make matte's "stick" through a XML/EDL export?"
Yes, you can crop and matter in Resolve... or let it carry through in the XML and render the mattes out in FCP.
