Best way for client to pick footage for a edit

Hey there,

I'm currently editing a corporate video in Resolve (I'm enjoying doing editing and grading in one app)

The client wants to put in some cut scenes in between some of the videos.

Currently my process is to compile all the raw footage into one video and then they send me a list of the times they want the clips cut at.

Then I go through the first timeline find the clip, trim it and put it on a new timeline for it to be edited.

This seems very crude, and I'm wondering if there's a better process to do it. I tried Googling it but haven't had much luck.

All help is appreciated.



Have you looked at ? This is designed for collaborative projects spread out over the internet.

I would be concerned about giving the client too much freedom in editing the video. Of course they should be allowed to have some scenes added or be taken out but generally you should give them the expectation you will do the job, you are the expert after all.

You give them too much freedom and before you know it their requests run totally counter to making a good video and you might winding up resenting the end result.

I would never send a full video with all raw footage to a client. Would you expect the client go through all this and effectively make the edit for you?
