It was on this morning. It is looking very good. Timeline track aficionados should be happy, and it bears quite a resemblance to FCPX. Interchange with FCP7 and especially FCPX looks very good. Will be giving it a serious look and some training after I return in early November from Europe. Leaving in 3 weeks.

Already a better nle than fcx will ever be. Tracks.
Mastered to SR with 12 tracks. Beautiful thing. Although going to tape has been getting a lot looser and nonsensical with every release since 8. Expected.
Audio mixer. Beautiful thing.
Edit playback is brutal still and frame fudging has a lot of lag. So much so I wouldn’t dream of doing anything long form for a while.
Adding text is ok. Still a lot to be desired. Dissolves could be better
Film look plugins. Beautiful thing.
Compound clips is just blackmagic effing with me. Go back to the jobsian bubble with that nonsense. Give us a proper generator.

Seriously? So you have R11 with lousy playback, “brutal” as you put it, lousy dissolves, crappy titles and you don’t understand compound clips. Yup, R11 must be better, by god, ’cause it’s got tracks!! Oh, and a mixer, which personally I never used in FCP7 and hated in MC so I guess I don’t miss it in X. 😉
And how much color correction do most projects need that X or X and plugins can’t handle? That’s one thing that has amused me with the R11-love. “Gotta round trip to R11 for color.” I would say most times not. Why complicate things by forcing a round trip? I mean, I have R11 and am learning it, but until it becomes seriously better for editing, it will have limited use in my work. Of course it looks a helluva lot like X, but those damn tracks get in the way all the time….Just my early morning, one-cup-of-coffee opinion. YMMV.

The audio mixer has to be the ugliest most useless audio mixer ever. And it ties into that wonderful playback. Since you can’t move or breathe while Resolve 11 plays back, you certainly can’t adjust an audio fader!
The shell of an NLE is there, with better trimming tools by far, and the Keyframes would be decent if you could actually copy and paste them or adjust more than one at a time. What the app is dearly missing is content. No FX, titles, templates, generators, transitions, audio fx, plugins, etc. Unless you want to pay for sapphires overpriced glows and light rays.

All I can add is that Resolve 11 is the best conduit from FCPX (due to Audio Sync R3Ds) to Avid MC AAF 😉
Now as far as NLE, I dont think it can cut it…pardon the pun 😉

Thought it was rather self evident from my first. I don’t like the timeline. Shocking I know.
[Scott Witthaus] “and you don’t understand compound clips.”
Ah the internet. Sigh. And I guess you don’t understand how Resolve generates clips. It’s quite obnoxious. Compound clipping is obnoxious. There are work arounds and sometimes it just requires a “right-click”. But when you are gapping breaks, filling holes, after 12 hours in a timeline you pine for a past life of ease in fc7 with a drag and drop.
[Scott Witthaus] “Oh, and a mixer, which personally I never used in FCP7 and hated in MC so I guess I don’t miss it in X. ;-)”
Interesting how it becomes all about you. The mixer is there. Its a good start. I can monitor levels. Assign and it did a smash up job going to SR. Which is still a deliverable in the broadcast world.
[Scott Witthaus] “And how much color correction do most projects need that X or X and plugins can’t handle?”
Not sure what that has to do with anything I said. But enjoy that coffee my friend.

Isn’t that kind of a moot point when comparing to X, since you can’t output to SR from X anyway? The solution, though is roles in X, which effectively become the same as stems or subgroups in a track-based world. I routinely export multi-channel QT files in a DME configuration from X by using stems. Then using the AJA or BMD utility, you can go to tape.

Scott, I do it all the time on most commercials. I can go way deeper and better in Resolve than I can in X, even though the grading tools are good for an NLE in X.
For example, shape masks and tracking requires SliceX/TrackX and that doesn’t really work well in conjunction with the color board. Many of the grades I do in Resolve or any other tool (including stacked corrections in X) require 4-8 nodes/layers/etc. OTOH, for a lot of the web videos and corporate pieces, I’ll stick with X.
So yes, you can do it in X, but it’s better and faster – AND looks more professional in front of a client – if you use Resolve. Did I mention it’s FREE. 😉
