Flares first or grading first? (workflow question)

Wondering about the best workflow...

(1) Correcting the material in Resolve to a basic, fairly neutral and technically "correct" state, then add optical flares in AE. And in a third step finally bring it back to Resolve to set the look.

(2) Add the flares first, then migrate to Resolve to correct and set the look

(3) Correct and set the look first and then move over to AE to add optical flares.

Any advice in this matter? What would be the right order?

[Enno Jacobsen] "(1) Correcting the material in Resolve to a basic, fairly neutral and technically "correct" state, then add optical flares in AE. And in a third step finally bring it back to Resolve to set the look."

Can the flares be exported as a Resolve-compatible codec with alpha channel? In that case, you could bring the layers into Resolve and grade/blend in context.

Best way to do it is do a rough flares pass first with them in roughly the right place and intensity.

Render on black

Put them on v2 in resolve and use add blending mode

Grade away happily

Turn off the flares and render

Go back to AE and refine.

Works a treat and I used this workflow on the intro for this show :

Juan's tutorial is great....

still this is one are where Mystika, Pablo & DS shine, mainly due to being able to modify the effect's values, track & mask the generator point.. it's good to see Resolve's tools take a substaintial step up

My answer would be to do it interactivly, all at the same time, but i don't use Resolve, and this is the reason why ;-)

OFX host in Resolve would be a big help for sure in this scenairo
