No regions in DaVinci? Then how to log footage?
on Apr 11, 2020 at 2:49:16 am

how would you log/edit an interview -particularly when dealing with many hours of interviews? I'm new to Resolve, coming from Vegas ...and I don't see any way to drop and label regions, which is my primary way of logging interviews so I can quickly find a certain soundbyte when I want it. I also use these region labels to rank the quality of the byte, highlight the best portions of b-roll footage, and on the timeline, to mark/label segments of my project. I see that you can create subclips, but then it doesn't allow you to expand out the subclip's in/out points once on the timeline if, for example, you are curious what the person says just before that subclip's in point (not sure why they would create that limitation). I also don't see a way to open the subclips parent media (if that's not possible, I'd never use subclips).
I'm guessing the best way is to use multiple timelines to narrow raw footage down to a timeline of 'selects', then to a timeline of ordered selects. If anyone else has any suggestions, please let me know.
