    Not everyone is a member of the mentioned site, so would anyone like to offer an opinion on the new (version 10) of Resolve?
    Personally, I think, if one could just edit in Resolve and then just grade it without ever needing to do the conform, this would be fantastic!

    I guess they call it online editing because most likely it’s going to be heavily optimized for the Blakmagic camera, so no ned to transcode, but one thing I think we’re going to get for sure, is plugin support.

    “Online editing” is a really vague phrase. As far as I can tell, it’s used for anything from basically a DI conform (which Resolve already does, of course) to full-on finishing a la Smoke. I’m guessing that’s more the direction they’re going in.

    That’s not the same as an NLE like Final Cut, though, those are still two different things.

    I think the “online editing” term in this case suggests something less than a full fledged editorial system like avid or FCP, for example I’m going to guess no multicam, less robust trim tools, etc.

    I think the intention here is to solve the roundtrip problem by taking the return flight out of the equation.

    I highly doubt, that company, like BM without any history in the on-line editing software, or whatever that is called today, can just walk in and create something from ground up on the level of complexity from likes of Adobe, Apple or Avid. I suspect it will contain some basic editing functionality, titling, basic keying and simple sound support. You’ll be able to import XML, EDL, CDL or AAF, do basic fixes, perform grading, add titles, sound and deliver, hopefully even a DCP, all in one package. In other words not much more, than you already can do today. Will see it on Monday…

    Yeah, I think Juan is right, they’re talking about finishing and delivery, not editing in the sense of FCP/Avid.

    It could still be really nice, though, if we get better titling/text generation, better (at least faster) layers and blending/basic compositing, more sound tools, and so on.

    I’ve been telling everyone who will listen at BMD for a couple of years that lots of people would be willing to pay extra for some more DCP-oriented output. I don’t think they need full DCP authoring in Resolve, but being able to output 250Mbit/sec JPEG2000 sequences directly would be very nice. As it is, we can’t even make 12-bit TIFF sequences, which is a bit of a waste.

    [Joakim Ziegler] “lots of people would be willing to pay extra for some more DCP-oriented output. I don’t think they need full DCP authoring in Resolve,”

    I have some money tied up in DCP authoring already, but the truth is that distribution and interoperablity are so all over the freaking map that releasing a drive is a terrifying experience. Most can play InterOp, but not all can play SMPTE, but other problems with frame rates, resolutions, poorly parsed CPLs… you name it. So what if they play back fine under EasyDCP? Meaningless when released into the wild.

    Fuji has officially shut down film production, stock, locked and two smoking barrels of chemicals. Gone. So we are now really stuck with digital distribution — let the fun and total chaos begin.

    True, easyDCP playback doesn’t guarantee a thing. And then when the client calls all freaking out that their DCP cannot play at the festival, good luck make them understand is not your fault…
    I hope that someone comes with some software that can test a DCP package and tell you which servers it passes, that would be gold.
