Using Offline Reference Clips in DaVinci Resolve
“Developing an ability to match shots quickly is of tantamount importance when first learning to grade. However, managing technical details before your clients arrive is just as important.
These are the parts of the job that your clients aren’t concerned about, because they’re only interested in making the image look its best. Using offline clips from the editorial department is extremely crucial for a session.
Your worst-case scenario is a client who knows the timeline better than you do. You don’t want them calling out a shot you’re grading as wrong. It’s the easiest and fastest way to lose credibility, and the client will question everything else in the session from that point on.
Now that I’ve sufficiently scared you, let’s take a look at how to work with offline clips and how they can be used throughout the session.” – Tristan Kneschke | Premium Beat
