''You can use your camera's digital zoom to focus or you can manually zoom in with your lens, too.''
Manually zooming in works only with parfocal zoom lenses - ones that don't change focus while zooming. There are a lot of lenses, where this is would lead to a failure, because if you set focus when zoomed at 50mm and zoom out to wider angle, the focus would definitely be off.
When I'll get a gimbal, I'll definitely try to DIY this:
For a one man operator/focus puller you really don't need a wireless solution, so this could do. I've used these motors and controllers for making a motorised slider and I'm pretty sure it would work for a follow focus as well. The controller has two modes - one when by turning the wheel you set the speed of motor (turn the wheel further - motor speeds up) and the other one, which would be useful for focusing - the motor responds as you turn the wheel. Like if you turn the wheel 45 degrees, motor turns the same. So if you're really on a budget, you can give this a go.
Actually, selecting a piece of image and then adjusting it, based on saturation, brightness and color values has always been possible, since I have used Premiere Pro (since cs4 or cs5) - three-way CC, secondary color grade. Now in Lumetri saturation in different color channels is even easier adjustable than before. And since PPro CC version trackable masks are also available (one thing, in which resolve was better a few years ago). When Premiere gave us trackable masks, I don't switch to Resolve anymore, there just isn't a thing I can't do in Premiere.
So when I hear someone saying that he uses Premiere for editing and Resolve for coloring, I'm just very curious, what is that thing, that can't be done in Premiere.
Thanks for the reply! Great news :)
Ok, but can the basic users upload 1080p finally instead of 720p?
Often on NFS I see that people say Resolve is the best and that they use it to color almost everything they shoot. Resolve has way more color features and no editing software is able to match it. And in the meantime, I see people asking how to desaturate shadows in Premiere, no offence. So really, which features of Resolve really cannot be found in Premiere Pro? For professional colorists it is of course the control surface, ability to color Raw formats, what more? I am not a professional colorist, so I don't know about pro features, but if I am coloring just a regular DSLR video, what do I miss when doing it in Premiere?
