I’ve been an editor and director for more than two decades now. Transitioned from Avid to FCP, to Premiere and finally arrived at the promised land of Resolve. I love this software and think it is by far the best NLE out there, BUT — as I transition to more directing work, I’m finding it very difficult to find offline editors who work on DaVinci in the NY area where I am based.
I now have four projects in the pipeline and no editors in sight.
Its over a month since your post, so I’m guessing you’ve found the editor/s you needed.
But in case you didn’t, I’ve had great success editing remotely on DaVinci Resolve using Jump desktop. So, in case you don’t find someone in your immediate area, you could consider someone from elsewhere, maybe even a different country.
And even if your system is not free in the day, that remote editor could be in a different time zone so s/he can work own your system at night when you aren’t using it.
Alternately, you can do a hybrid workflow where you have a copy of the media and database on a drive attached to your system, and the remote editor works at their system with a clone of your drive. And you use a sync software to keep the databases in sync.
Back to my Mac has been discontinued. Apple Remote Desktop, or other apps like TeamViewer, Anydesk etc let you remote control your Mac from elsewhere but don’t offer a smooth picture and sound in sync experience. Or video quality. I’ve tested others like NoMachine, or Parsec, that work but are a bit clunky.
With Jump Desktop, and preferably a Mac wired to the Internet, I’m experienced nearly ‘being there’ experience. I could demo it to you. Its free to install for the system being controlled. It costs for the one controlling. I have a license.
I helped an editor in NY convert a project from Premiere Pro to Avid remotely by taking control of his Mac. It was almost like ‘being there’ with Jump Desktop.
