A feature from COLOR in DaVinci
on Aug 19, 2013 at 7:41:57 pm

Hi,

Coming from COLOR, I wondered, if there is an equivalent feature in Davinci:
When I finished a grade for a clip and he client e.g. Wants to a a certain feature, let's say a blue tint.
I could ad that in color in a separate secondary, and then copy only that specific secondary to my other clips in the TL. Is there a similar workflow possible in Davinci?

Thanx a lot.

Make a node with that tint and then add the node to the other shots you want to have the tint. Via a mem or still.

But if I go about it this way, will the blue tint node be added to the existing node structures of the other clips or does the tint race it then? I look for a way to this specific additional node to the node trees of other clips.
Thanx a lot for the patience to explain this to a COLOR refugee.

You can just copy the node with the tint to your existing node tree.

Not to be an a.s.s but just start reading at page 458 of the Resolve manual. Will tell you everything you need to know to get started with nodes.

And just one more remark in this forum: I did check the manual first, and I do know, that I can copy settings of a specific node, then choose another clip and paste those settings to another septic node, whereas I have to of course ad first a serial node, I can copy that information to.
My question was if there was a similar fast way, like in COLOR, where I can drag and drop any secondary added, to any other clip.
In general I can only find advantages of DaVinci over COLOR, but it seems that in this case COLOR offered a way faster way to do this.

Yeah color had a couple cool things...
You could try groups in resolve, but you need to be pretty well organized. Can be kinda tricky.

I do miss the drag-and-drop function in Color. That may be the only thing I miss. Use the keyboard shortcuts to make it go fast, though. Command+C on the blue tint node, then Options+S (add serial node) and Command+V on the shots that need the change.

I knew I wasn't he only one ;-). Yes the the copy paste way is what I do know, but needless to say, that it takes waaaaay longer than drag'n'drop.

Hi
If you need a tint over the whole movie, you can add a Track node by standing on any clip, switching the menu to Track (upper right corner in the Color Node area), and now you have a node area dedicated to the whole movie, not clip by clip.

Toda, itai, but I was aware of that as well. It's just that I don't need a node to ad for he whole film, but let's say there is a certain scene in the film, where all corrections are fine, but he director wants to ad one little detail. In COLOR, you just made a separate secondary, then you dragged and dropped only that secondary to all the clips in question. Something I used very often, and it was incredible fast to work like that. DaVinci I amazing piece of software, but that feature Apple's grading tool, had the nose ahead.

Is it something that you can do with Append node in Resolve?
Just append to the last node.

[Itai Bachar] "Just append to the last node."

That would be the one.

You will have a "master" clip in which you work out the wash tint... save that, buffer it somewhere to erase everything else but that specific node and then you can append it all over the place.

Most of the time however, that one treatment won't be appropriate in all cases, so I like to use the display node tree dialogue and drag and drop the tint into the correction by hand in case there is a hierarchy in the grade flow that the tint might interfere with.

Is there a way to copy and paste a complete node? Is there a proper solution for this in version 10? I'm not sure this was answered in this post or I didn't understand the solution. Another example for practical use. I have a vignette that I need to apply to a group of clips that all have a different color node tree without. I need to do this without overwriting the last node in the tree.

This is the only way I know how to do it now.

1. Add a node. Apply the vignette to the node.
2. Copy the node.
3. Go to another clip add another node then paste the vignette settings.

How I want it to perform in step 3.

3. Select multiple clips and paste the actual node not just the settings which would append to the node tree. This makes it so I don't have to go into each clip creating a unique node.

Thoughts?

Good thoughts. I hope, there is an answer to this.

Anybody?
