Episode 9: From the Mailbag
Which Is Better? Resolve vs SpeedGrade
How Do I Best Manage Versions In Resolve?
Another Friday, another MailBag Episode! Recently we’ve been getting just a ton of great suggestions for future Mailbag Episodes – thank you so much! We’ll be recording those new topics soon.
Remember, if you have questions that you’d like to get an opinion on please use the contact form. 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.
In this episode, like we usually do, we’ll be covering two different questions/topics.
Team Mixing Light – Can You Pick a Favorite Between Resolve & SpeedGrade?
Recently, we got an email from Mixing Light member Jonathan (who is in the process of learning both Resolve and SpeedGrade) who asks “Honestly, which application is better? Resolve or SpeedGrade?”
Talk about a loaded question! However, this question comes up a lot, especially from those that are new to dedicated grading applications and seeking advice as to which system to invest their time and money into mastering.
Like any application, there are things to like and other areas that could use improvement in both applications. We break it down with pro’s and con’s of each app – ’cause we’re not going to decide for you!
My Versions In Resolve Are Getting Out Of Control!
Next up, we got a question from MailBag repeat offender Tom Parish about what’s the best method for managing versions in Resolve, especially on long-form projects.
This type of grade management is something that every colorist struggles with from time to time no matter their tool of choice.
However, as you’ll hear, using Resolve there are couple key strategies that you can employ to help when you have projects with multiple versions per shot.
