DaVinci Resolve 10 In-Depth From Ripple Training


I try not to post two promotional articles in a row, but I’m still wrapping up the whopping five book year I started in 2013, and I’ve been too busy to bloviate any further here since my last two books came out. However, many of you have been clamoring for Resolve 10 training, and with Resolve 10 finally shipping on November 7th, I’ve heard your pleas and have been working with Steve Martin and the good folks at Ripple Training to make it happen, incorporating updates for 10.0.1 and 10.0.2 as they’ve since come out.

It wasn’t easy! Resolve 10 was a deceptively gigantic release, as is reflected by the now-available DaVinci Resolve 10 In-Depth title’s length—5 hours divided into 48 movies that are focused exclusively on the new features found in DaVinci Resolve 10. And I do mean every feature, large and small. Updates to the Media page are discussed. There’s a whole series of movies on the brand new editing features in the updated Edit page. Of course, there’s lots of content covering the myriad new grading features to be found in the Color page, including an overview of how to use Resolve Live. Finally, there’s a substantial amount of updated workflow information, including tips on new Deliver page functionality and a quick look at easyDCP integration.

Best of all, we’ve kept the price low, so it’s an easy add-on for folks who already own the Resolve 9 Core Training title, or who are already familiar with Resolve. In fact, this title is designed to work together with the previous Resolve 9 Core Training title, which remains the main starting point for people who are just getting started with DaVinci Resolve, since most workflows and much of the basic and grading functionality remains the same.

Depending on what you need, there are three ways you can get Resolve 10 In-Depth:

Color Correction Handbook 2nd Edition: Grading theory and technique for any application.
Color Correction Look Book: Stylized and creative grading techniques for any application.
What's New in DaVinci Resolve 14: Covering every new feature in Resolve 14 from Ripple Training.
DaVinci Resolve Tutorials: Far ranging DaVinci Resolve instruction from Ripple Training.

  1. Hi Alexis!

    I’m starting to watch your last Ripple video training, between two pages of the color correction handbook & look book. 😉

    First video you say projects can’t be moved from inside/outside folders, which I have first noticed in the beta. One workaround I’ve found out is :
    – backup the project you want to ‘move’
    – go inside the folder you want to place the project into
    – right mouse click and choose ‘import’ to import the project you’ve just saved
    – now delete the ‘old’ project and its folder if necessary

    Now you have it, project at the right place. Of course this is a lot of extra steps and would be better if BMD brings a ‘move’ option in the project manager, but it works.

    Now back to the training …

  2. That’s a great tip, and you’re absolutely right. However, DaVinci still needs to implement drag and drop behaviors for these activities, and I feel morally obligated to nag them about it. With love, of course…

  3. Coming back to you Alexis for a quick question.

    I’ve just seen the lesson about importing from FCPX, which is my NLE of choice. Of course with FCPX 10.1 release, the lesson is a little ‘outdated’. And here is my problem : even if Resolve 10.1 update has returned fully compatible with fcpxml file, with FCPX self-contained libraries, media files can’t be reached when importing the xml. I can assume Resolve can’t see the files, for now, located ‘inside” the libraries (because I’m using FCPX managed library, videos are inside them).

    I’m used to keep a backup of my original media files when importing and copying the footage in the FCPX library : so of course, a workaround is to populate the media pool straight from the original folder. But I could be on another computer without backup drives and I’m wondering, in case I have only my FCPX ‘managed-library’ available, how I can import the footage properly in Resolve ? Maybe you know a trick, or it is just impossible at that state. Thanks in advance.

  4. A little update about moving projects in or out folders in the project window. I don’t know if this appears in Resolve 10.1 or before, but right-clicking on a project has now a “cut” and “paste” option. So even if a drag & drop option would be easier to move projects, cutting a project and pasting it from this right-mouse click menu is faster than the workaround I have described above.

  5. What I’ve done is to use the “Consolidate Library Files” command to move the media to be external to the Library. At the moment, that doesn’t seem to allow Resolve to automatically import the media referenced by an imported XML file, but it makes it easier to manually select the media folder when prompted by the XML import dialog. That’s worked fine. I also notice that Resolve is able to drill down into an FCP X Library bundle to see its contents, but I’ve not used that functionality in an actual project yet.

  6. Yes you’re right, and I even didn’t tried that, but Resolve can drill down into a FCPX project. So I can relink my medias even if I work with managed FCPX libraries. So no problem left to go back and forth from FCPX to Resolve.

    I think I’m loving Resolve team guys too ! 😉
