Wondering if this is possible in Resolve:

An editor wants me to take some tiff files that are of different sizes (5000 x 3000, 2000 x 1080, etc.) and color grade them in Resolve. He wants them back as tiff files at their respective original frame sizes.

Do I do these in separate projects for each frame size? Can I get Resolve to fit these on my monitor and then render out at the original size? Anybody come across this yet?

Resolve is resolution and frame rate independent. You should have no problems. - Workflow information and support for filmmakers, photographers, audiographers and videographers.

The challenge I think you will have is running out of GPU memory. A 5k x 3k image is quite big, a lot bigger than DCI 4K for example, and thus 3GB or more GPU ram might be needed.

Wait... does Resolve now support single frame graphic files... TIFF, JPG, PNG, etc.?

I've asked this without response from bmd, because one of them posted a workaround I can't find.
Apparently if you bring a tiff into media pool and change frame rate to 1 fps or something it recognizes it? Have not tried it. Not quite the same as recognizing stills from an XML a la apple color... | owner-colorist | Hollywood, CA
