Day Three: Editing on DaVinci Resolve 12.5

Day Three: Editing on DaVinci Resolve 12.5

It's Day Three of Walter Biscardi's REAL WORLD editing on DaVinci Resolve 12.5 and this is going to be the longest blog yet as I want to show you guys a lot of the "little things" that are making editing in Resolve a pleasure. I know there are a lot of questions still out there whether this is really a professional editor. For me it's the small things that separate the applications making life efficient and fun for the the editor.

Day Two: Editing on DaVinci Resolve 12.5

Somebody asked Walter Biscardi, "why does editing in Resolve interest you?" Well, he states, it is my color grading tool of choice. It's completely free, and by the way, I'm cutting this project using the free version of Resolve. My Studio version sits on another machine. And having all of that extra real estate on the second monitor is a huge bonus.

The Many Colors of A Modern Family

Sometimes it might seem that colorists are all about stylized treatments and extreme color correction, but Aidan Stanford's work on season five of Modern Family is all about maintaining realism and hiding all the tricks in the background. Making the jump from film color timing into digital hasn't been easy, but Aidan has found a way to utilize his film skills in the digital world, turning around episodes in a day using his favorite tools in DaVinci Resolve.
