When you open up Resolve 11 you’ll notice that a few familiar qualifier controls have changed. The DaVinci team have been hard at work refining and improving the qualification options available to us and unleashed them in Resolve 11. The new tools are aimed at pulling keys from more difficult footage and includes new options such as :
- Black Clip
- White Clip
- In / Out Ratio
Each of these tools is new or has been refined in some way and let me tell you they make a big difference!
At the moment I’m still practicing with the new options and integrating them into my creative grading process. The only way to instinctively know how and when to use your tools you just need to practice practice practice!
My advice is to try and think back to difficult keys from the past, reload them into a new Resolve 11 project and try and pull a better key than last time!
Check out my video below to see my introduction to the new tools.
