Dailies Workflow with Pomfort LiveGrade & DaVinci Resolve

Pomfort has put together a new tutorial on how to use their LiveGrade software in conjunction with DaVinci Resolve to create dailies. LiveGrade can be used with hardware like the BlackMagic HD Link Pro to create LUTs live. I outlined how to apply different LUTs in a previous blog, but Pomfort has put together a very simple way to work with ASC-CDL (Color Decision List) files in DaVinci Resolve.

LUTs, or Look Up Tables, are offsets that can be used to adjust the color and contrast of video shot in Log. No doubt this process will be even more simplified and improved when Resolve 9 comes out, since it will support audio syncing and a straight-forward LUT importing process.

Check out Pomfort's tutorial here. LiveGrade is now available for purchase from AbelCine.

Tech News
It wasn't too long ago that we posted about Blackmagic Design's big update to DaVinci Resolve 10, and now version 10.1 has been released. This update brings with it some interesting new features that will surely be appreciated - namely, better XML support for Final Cut Pro and a number of enhanced editing tools.

Users can now align multiple camera takes while editing, which simplifies the process of previewing multiple shot options. Other improvements include the ability to easily copy clips via drag-and-drop, and support for trimming frame-based clips such as DNG and DPX.

In the previous version of Resolve, some users ran into problems when working with FCP and XML imports. Blackmagic has definitely put some thought into this for the newest version: 10.1 includes XML import enhancements for both FCP X 10.1 and FCP 7. Compound clips from FCP X 10.1 with separate A/V elements are now split into individual clips, and imported FCP 7 XMLs now include timeline markers and font properties. Things like sizing, cropping, and composition parameters all translate accurately into the Resolve timeline, which is especially helpful for those editors who need to reframe large-sensor media.

For a full list of all the new features, visit Blackmagic Design's site. Existing DaVinci Resolve customers can update directly to 10.1 and, of course, Resolve Lite is still available as a free download.
