Two Ways of Using DaVinci Resolve's Parallel Mixer Node

Two Ways of Using DaVinci Resolve’s Parallel Mixer Node

April 9, 2018

In Part 2 of this series you learn two different ways of using DaVinci Resolve's Parallel Mixer node. We take the theory from Part 1 and put it into action on real footage (from one of our Color Correction Practice Projects).

Part 2: Using the Parallel Mixer Node On Real Footage

Previously, we looked at the theory of DaVinci Resolve’s Parallel Mixer Node; or at least – how it works on test images. I also mentioned how I’m re-evaluating my use of the Parallel node (or more precisely, my lack of usage). I’m thinking this node can really help me:

  • Become more organized in my node trees
  • Offer more subtlety and natural ‘interaction’ between layers
  • The additional organization will help speed up client revisions when sessions start getting fast-paced

On that second point, I’m taking a ‘let’s experiment and see’ attitude. But I think you’ll see in this Insight where I’m going with it.

Let me know your thoughts on using the Parallel Mixer node. I’m very interested to hear how others are using it.

Enjoy!

    1. Thanks Colin! I had a deeper conversation with one of software engineers at BMD during NAB. Very soon I’ll wrap up this series with what I learned and see if I can come up with good ways of visualizing the Parallel Node imaging pipeline.
