I just completed my first commercial project in Resolve's NLE and it was a fairly painless experience. I just dove into it, applying what I know from other NLEs and it worked out okay without really needing to crack open the manual. It really simplified my workflow as I was able to edit the raw camera footage. What I really loved was the ability to edit, color a clip, then jump back into the editor and edit some more. My workflow before, where I would make proxies, edit in Premiere, and then output an XML for Resole, was cumbersome and usually gave me some problems - not to mention that I couldn't easily go back and adjust an edit if I wanted to change something while grading. During this project, I synced up my audio at the tale-end of the project, which I don't really recommend- but I was impressed by the auto-sync feature. In the end, I built the audio track in Audition. This workflow, going from Resolve to Audition, was one that I hadn't quite worked out and had some trouble with. Therefore, I essentially had to start from scratch in Audition. Fortunately this was only a 60 second commercial I was making so it wasn't too bad. While I later built some titles in AfterEffects I was happy with all the tracking and powerwindowing I was able to achieve (and quickly achieve/render) in Resolve. With all that said, I am on a pretty powerful computer, HP Z840 (Dual 3.4 GHZ 128GB RAM, Dual 4G Nvidia K4200) so I'm anxious to try my next project at home on my iMac to see if performance is acceptable there too. If you're working with Raw Footage especially and your computer can handle the workload, I think you'll find that your workflow will be much faster if you can stay in Resolve. Great video, thanks for posting.
I was told on Monday at NAB by a Panasonic rep that nothing has been confirmed yet as far as V-Log goes, and he couldn't say whether it would be something that would be a paid upgrade or not.
