Scroll Mode

DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel – Scroll Mode

May 13, 2017

Using Scroll Mode in DaVinci Resolve is a quick and effortless way to audition grades for your current shot by loading grades


Series

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!

      This might be the single best feature on the big panels. You can access -1 Preview and -2 Preview with macros, but that’s not the same thing as scrolling through all the available looks in a session.

      This is great, thanks very much! Much more intuitive than pulling stills of everything

      It’s great fun. I also love the happy accidents when you scroll over a totally different set up and the grade looks amazing on the current shot

      “This means I had no link between similar shots and meant a lot of manual copy and pasting.” What does this mean? what link do you normally have? Or I guess, how do you copy grades on a commercial?

      Dan uses Resolve’s ‘Remote’ grading to flow his corrections on one clip throughout the timeline, everywhere that clip is used. By default, Resolve is set up for ‘Local’ grading – so that every shot is stand-alone you need to actively copy grades.
