Getting To Know The Resolve 14 Collaborative Workflow Part 2

June 9, 2017

In this Insight, we put Part 1 into action and explore the powerful workflows possible with Resolve 14 collaborative workflows.


Collaboration In Action

In part 1 of Getting To Know The Resolve 14 Collaborative Workflow, we explored essential setup and the basics of using the collaborative features of DaVinci Resolve 14.

Reading about the concepts is one thing seeing them in action is a different thing entirely!

Recently, Mixing Light contributor Joey D’Anna stopped by my studio (in real life we work quite often together) and after squeezing ourselves into the VO booth at my facility, we put the collaborative workflow concepts of Part 1 into action.

Here are some of the things we cover:

  • Necessity of the shared PostgresSQL database
  • Setting up a project in collaboration mode
  • Joining a collaborative project
  • Exploring bin and timeline level locking on the Media and Edit pages
  • Color page clip locking and workflow
  • Shared stills
  • Additional workflow considerations

One thing not covered in this Insight is collaboration and the Fairlight page in Resolve 14.

To be honest, the Fairlight page is still a work in progress and would be better served once it’s properly built out and demoed in a collaborative sense with an audio engineer who is more familiar with the toolset. Hopefully, in a future Insight, we can do that.

Finally, this is a pretty lengthy Insight – clocking in at 25min.  We considered breaking it up, but the continuity of seeing the workflow in action is important.

As always please use the comments below if you have more to add to the conversation or have any questions.
