Resolve Incorrectly Reading A SOurce File Resolution - A Way To Force Change This Attribute?
on Mar 26, 2013 at 6:59:09 pm

I have some material that is 3840x2160 but Resolve is mistakingly reading it as 3860x2178. Is there a way to force change how reads the source resolution a la clip attributes?

My workaround is setting timeline to 3840x2160 and setting scaling to Full Frame With Crop but odd that Resolve is reading the wrong resolution.

Cheers, Chris

I think codex might be the ones who need to fix.

It does read 3840x2160 in canon raw utility. If this is on Codex wonder what's going on. There's also weird things going on in random frames where the bottom 10 pixels have the previous frame recorded....

haven't seen C500 RAW in practice.
How did you like it Juan?

Initial thoughts based on this one production...

1. The Good - very good at pulling HSL keys from the Canon Raw because it is uncompressed. Picture was resolved nice and sharp while still maintaining a cinematic feel, something RED does not always get without a good DP.

2. The Not So Good - the latitude in the highlights does not stretch like the Alexa. To that end it is much more like working with RED material. Nothing seems to be able to roll off the hilights quite like Arri I guess. I was happy with the range I had everywhere else.

One other operational note was that if working with a modest Resolve system you cannot lower your de-bayer setting a la R3D's for color grading. It's more like working with DPX frames only without the ability to make proxies. I wound up conforming the Canon Raw 4K in Resolve and then exporting HD DPX frames that I then re-conformed in another session to color grade to get batter playback. When done I opened the Canon Raw conform session and used gallery to paste the grade from HD DPX session to. This was fine for a 2 minute piece but not so fine if it was longer...
