    Martin Fox:

    i thought of the baselight plug in but couldn’t see how you could simultaneously refer to an adjacent shot while grading, 

    (I didn’t try it).

     

    Hi Martin,

    After I posted this same question, below, I had a look at the most recent tutorial for Baselight 5.1 on the Filmlight website and they do describe the use of the scratchpad to capture the equivalent of power windows in Resolve and then you can wipe between the current shot and one of the scratchpad slots to perform shot matching (you can even use the new base grade to perform a preliminary color match between the reference (scratchpad image) and the current segment).

    It would be worth creating a tutorial to demonstrate this workflow as it is something that was not readily available in Baselight 4.4 and is one of several new features to that the Baselight integration to the next level.

    Not sure if I will have time but if I do, I'll post a link back to this thread.

    Resolve is a power-hungery application. It typically requires a top-end GPU such as an nVidia 1080 TI or a P4000 (usually a pair of these, actually). Mileage may vary and some have had success with lesser machines.

    Looking at your specs, it looks like you're using an onboard Intel Graphics chip, which may be the problem.

    Resolve will work reasonably well with a modest Nvidia card. If you don't want to splash out on a new card then something like a second-hand Quadro 4200 should work.

    Re: Colour Grading Tool - Looking for options

    In Baselight for Avid, unfortunately, wipe is available only on UI display, and not on the video output/reference monitor.

    I contacted Baselight support which had confirmed that limitation.  

    My question: "I'm trying to use scratchpad to match different shots. I managed to do that on my GUI display, but I didn't find any solution to have a WIPE view or a side-by-side view displayed on my reference display. Is it actually possible?"

    Support answer: "This isn’t possible - the wipe is only shown on the UI display.

    Thanks for the explanation, it’s a pity as the UI is not a good enough reference, perhaps with use one can get a feel for it.

    Regarding the resolve app, the App Store version is limited in some way compared to the free download from the BMD website, perhaps someone could clarify the differences.

    I agree but the reference wipe on the UI IS probably good enough for shot matching...

    I have heard this as well but I can't recall the difference - Why not buy the studio version from a retailer such as BandH? (BTW - if you don't mind using a dongle, if you buy the studio version of Fusion, it will also enable the studio version of Resolve)
