Moving PowerBins, PowerGrades & Configs – Not As Easy As It Should Be
As DaVinci Resolve has matured, it’s become easier to migrate many settings (User Preferences & keyboards for example) from project to project and database to database because of import/export functions.
But, if you rely heavily on PowerGrades – saved stills that work between projects in a database, PowerBins – same idea but for footage, or you’ve built up various project configurations for different combinations of color management, frame size/frame rate settings, etc. things aren’t as easy as they seem like the should be to migrate between databases.
Recently, we got a question from a member named Fabrizio who asked about migrating PowerBins, PowerGrades & Resolve project configurations between databases. To paraphrase Fabrizio’s detailed email:
How can I reload my Power Bins and Power Grade in new databases in a simple way? How can I reload my project configuration from a previous database?
Not surprisingly, these are common questions from a lot of Resolve users.
In this week’s installment of From The Mailbag, Team Mixing Light addresses various workarounds to handle these issues and we concur as a group that hopefully these small annoyances will be addressed in a future version of Resolve.
Got a question or something you’d like Team Mixing Light to discuss?
Your questions can be aesthetic, technical or even client related. We’d love to hear from you, and your question might make future episodes of From The MailBag.
Enjoy the Mailbag!
