DaVinci Resolve Tools: Using The Key Mixer Node

DaVinci Resolve Tools: Using The Key Mixer Node

July 20, 2013

You will learn two ways to use the Key Mixer Node: How to set it up as a master control for multiple masks; and how to build garbage masks for cleaner keys.


When dealing with complicated masks and multiple nodes all doing a similar job, the key mixer node can be a lifesaver! It’s probably the least used node in Resolve and can be a little tricky to set up but once you learn how to use the key mixer it becomes a powerful part of your arsenal.

I’ll be showing you two ways how to use the key mixer node, firstly how to set it up as a master control for multiple masks and secondly on how to build garbage masks to get cleaner keys.

Thanks to  for the BMC footage! You can find it here : https://vimeo.com/70013915 (note: this footage is no longer available. If we can get permission to offer a direct download here on Mixing Light, we will do so.)

This is a little tricky so please let me know if you have any questions!

    • Not so much a ‘Ah- ha’ but a ‘oh yeah I knew how to do that once’. I’d not used the key mixer for a year or 2 till yesterday. Thanks for refreshing that one for me Dan.

      The material has unfortunately been taken down by Vimeo: “Vimeo has removed or disabled access to the video BlackMagic Cinema Camera Test Footage: “The Adventures of Molotov Monty” as a result of a third-party notification by International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) that claims this material is infringing on their copyright.”

      Yeah… we’ve been looking into this and we’re not sure we can get the permission we need to offer a direct download here on ML. I’ll update this Insight accordingly.

      If the status changes, we’ll let you know.
