Understanding codecs and video compression in DaVinci Resolve
The last step of any digital video project is the delivery. It is also among the most misunderstood. As more creatives enter the world of post production, they have to deal with increasingly technical jargon and inaccessible papers detailing the many aspects of codecs and compression. As a result, they often rely on presets, hoping the result will be 'good enough'. In this 2-hour workshop, we will go over the common compression techniques employed by various codecs and build an understanding of what they do and when/why we need to adjust their parameters. There will be plenty of imagery and examples used throughout, ideal for visual learners and those who learn best from practical examples. In the curriculum, you will: - Differentiate between codecs and containers - Learn about temporal and spatial compression methods - Observe quantisation - Read data rates and review how they affect posterization and banding Understanding how to correctly setup and render out a project will allow you to faithfully reproduce the colours and clarity of your video, just as you saw it in the DaVinci Resolve viewer. After this workshop, exporting will stop feeling like a guessing game!

Fusion Color Management in DaVinci Resolve
Ever feel uncertain about what's happening with the colors when working in DaVinci Resolve's Fusion page? Have you avoided the DaVinci Wide Gamut or ACES to avoid over-complicating your Fusion workflow? In this workshop, we will explore 4 common color management setups in DaVinci Resolve: - No Resolve color management - SDR color management - HDR/DWG color management - ACES color management We will take a look at the unique features of these systems and learn how they interpret the sRGB Linear Fusion signal. Based on our understanding of how colors are mapped between Resolve pages, we will be able to find solutions to fix expected (and unexpected) color and gamma shifts. These solutions will range from the beginner-friendly (CSTs), to more advanced concepts (OCIOs and custom LUTs).
