  • Feature requests: color temperature control, improved blur

    Posted by Pepijn Klijs on November 2, 2012 at 11:14 am

    Last month I had the pleasure of working with RED footage in Resolve. What I really love is how easily you can alter the color temperature on these raw files. I was just wondering if it’s even possible to create such a control for other kinds of formats as well (i.e.. pro res).

    Is it (technically) possible? And would you, as a user, love such a feature?

    My other question/request is about the blur in Resolve. One of the great things of Resolve, as we all know, is the tracker. Combined with a power window and some blur I find it the perfect tool for blurring license plates, faces etc. The only thing that is really frustrating is the limited amount of blur one can add. Even using multiple nodes with blur is sometimes not enough. It seems like a very simple thing to fix. Could we get more intense blur in Resolve?

    [Pepijn Klijs] ” color temperature on these raw files.”

    + 1/2.

    Not interested in color temperature control for ProRes. RAW it makes sense for, but generally speaking any of the color temperature problems I’ve had to solve are cross-lit (practcial tungsten incandescents in an overall fluorescent environment with day spill), so no one solution works anyway.

    If you have to use that much blur, maybe a better solution would be a matte generator.

    So, what you really want is Apple COLOR’s FX room.
