In the long awaited return to the DaVinci Resolve control surface Insights series I thought I would start Scroll Mode as it’s something fun and also a widely unknown feature.
Apologies for the delay on continuing this series It turns out it’s pretty difficult to find a free day to set up lots of camera gear in a fully working Grading Suite.
Between myself and my assistant we are now booked up 3 weeks in advance with day and evening sessions.
I’ll make sure to continue this series ASAP when I sort out the recording situation and set up camp over a weekend.
Back to this weeks insight!
I don’t exactly know the history of this feature but it’s been on the Resolve Control Surface for as long as I can remember.
My best guess is that it was a daVinci 2k feature that was ported over to Resolve.
When grading was telecine based we didn’t have many GUI functions and relied on panel functions to do a lot of copying and pasting.
It’s also one of the few features that is exclusive to the Resolve Advanced Panel and not available in the software interface. It may also be available on the mini and micro panel but I haven’t got one to test on so if it is please do chime in below in the comments!
