What are the best (render to and codec is) settings when working with 4K footage? Ideally I would like to round trip between these programs uncompressed and in full 4K quality till my final export. Thanks in advance and great tutorial.

Hi, I was following this but on davinci 12.5 it changes the name and i see no option to keep the name of the file. Is there a tutorial for 12.5?

Question here : Don't you loose some image quality by exporting from Da Vinci, then exporting again the final video from Premiere?
Pierre LeGrand USA (3 years ago)
Thanks. I sure wish there was some kind of dynamic link between the two programs.
Geoff Fong (3 years ago)
Is it better to synch the sound in resolve first or premiere?
mike luu (3 years ago)
I am wondering if you had cross fades how would that work. davinci would export just that clip. so cross fades wouldn't apply. what's the work around?
Jennifer (3 years ago)
I made proxies of red epic footage and exported it from davinci to then edit in Final cut pro 7 with those proxies. After the edit in final cut I exported and xml and imported it back into Davinci to re-link with the original raw footage where I can color grade with that in the edit. But when I review the timeline in Davinci all the clips in each edit are somehow moved back a by a couple seconds and it's not linked up exactly right? Can you help please!!!
Kevin Lee (3 years ago)
when you relink to original media on the second export does that link it to the ful res media?

THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One thing i noticed is when you start grading, you are on your proxy sequence and not the master time line, as far as i know this is incorrect. You should always grade your master time line.
Jesse Borkowski (3 years ago)
+Ruben Contreras Resolve has changed quite a bit since I posted this tutorial, but in this workflow the proxy sequence is relinking to the master media files, so it's the correct way of working. You are grading the master clips - your original source media - and not the proxy files. The timeline is irrelevant in this instance, since whatever you send to Resolve from Premiere will relink to cinemaDNG and not your low res files.
Wondering Pictures (4 years ago)
URGENT QUESTION: I've exported 2 seperate proxy folders from Davinci (from 2 different SSD drives) and then into Adobe. I edited the film, and now have exported the XML from Adobe and imported to Davinci. For some reason, Davinci is not able to link the proxies to the original 4K files! A window pops up saying "The clip X failed to link because the timecode extents do not match any clip in the Media Pool." I'm totally stuck at this point! What do I do?
Hey, I really appreciate the tutorials. I was lost with how to get the footage from Resolve to Premiere until I found this. However, I'm getting an issue. I got some footage into resolve, color corrected and graded (I'm just testing stuff out), then sent it to Premiere using the adjusting proxies tutorial. When I send them back to Resolve, all the color changes are gone. Is this suppose to happen or did I do something wrong? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Jean Loui (4 years ago)
Hi Jesse, excellent tutorial. Thank you! I have a question ... When I do RoundTrip and import the xml in premiere I get an error, as if the file is damaged. How can I fix this?  Thank you!!

This is good info. My question is after editing footage in premiere how can I send my projects to after effects, compose VFX then bring it back into davinci?
Humberto Guzman (4 years ago)
great tutorial, I also think i've worked with that actress before. Small world. 
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
Thanks! The footage is actually from from Blackmagic Design / John Brawley. I did this tutorial before I had my own camera that shot cinemaDNG.
pward1733 (4 years ago)
Hi Jesse, Great video. I am just having trouble with the XML. Exported proxies and made the edits. Then when I import XML back to resolve it references the wrong clips. The referenced clips are in the media pool but I have too many to force conform. Any ideas? Thanks!
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
Sounds like your timecode probably repeats across clips - so multiple clips have the same timecode. There are conform options in the Settings panel related to how Resolve conforms clips. Take a look at those, depending on how your project is setup and what the problem is you might be able to use those conform settings to fix the problem.
ZSIonMedia (4 years ago)
Jesse, Question for you. I am using 4k footage. I am using Resolve to make 1920x1080 proxies to work with in Premiere CC. I can make the proxies, but am I limited to what I can edit in Premiere. For instance I have different fades, motions, speeds, plugins, etc. So when I finish that and round-trip back to Resolve it loses all of that information. Even in your video I noticed you didn't do any editing(dissolves, wipes, etc.). I want to edit my proxies in premiere and round-trip to resolve to have the final product in 4k. Any suggestions?
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
+Supremest Not all information gets transferred from PPro to Resolve when using XML. Information that is not transferred is considered 'Unsupported Media.' Examples would be effects that you've added to a clip. There are a couple of ways that you can deal with this. One would be to not use low resolution proxies and not return to Resolve. So, color correct and export high resolution proxies (ProRes 422 for example) that you edit in Premiere and use  those files for final export. Or, if you want to return to Resolve you could copy and paste all of your transitions/effects (time consuming) to the new timeline once you return to PPro from Resolve. Or, you could export the final graded clips from Resolve and relink them in place of your low res proxies, but this could create very large files, since you would have to export the exact same amount of data for the timecode/EDL to match. With Resolve 10 you can add effects in Resolve, so might be a solution there. Basically, there is no simple way to round trip easily if you are doing lots and lots of effects work. I usually just do the picture edit with some stand in effects, color correct, return to PPro and do my final effects then. I think new versions of Resolve will make this process easier. Hopefully...
Supremest (4 years ago)
Long question short..can we make proxies in resolve, import in premiere, edit with plugins in premiere, round-trip to resolve, grade, render high res, import to premiere, adjust effects used(cause if you use let's say after effects, the difference of resolutions from comp to timeline may create a chinesse soup out of all), export?? also I found these questions on bcd forum, they're quite good: -when i do my final edit into PPro, and suppose I need to re-Grade some of the clips, i Have to correct those clip in resolve, and re-do the render to see the changes in premiere? there is another way to do that? -when i do the final edit into PPro, and suppose to add a completely new clip into the timeline. i Have to re-do all the procedure for each new clip i want to add? THANKS FOR ALL!
Hey Jesse, thanks for the tut. I have 1 question: 1) I have my clips in FCP and I edit a rough cut. Lets suppose I must play with the basic motion (scale, angle...) because the shot was not perfect. THEN I export them to RESOLVE 2) Resolve does not keep that "information" and just shows me the original clips, so I correct the color in Resolve and I go back to FCP 3) But then I have to replace every clip that I color corrected + copypaste the basic motion settings again to these new clips Is there a easier way to do this? Am I doing it on the opposite order? I cannot correct first the color and then edit, because I would spend hours correcting 2much footage which I may not use.
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
When you import the XML into Resolve check the 'Use Sizing Information' box. That should transfer your basic motion decisions over. When you do the final export, just export the file as one clip, then import that clip into your FCP project and place it on the timeline on a track above the timeline you edited on. If the resolution is different (sequence settings don't match) just make a new sequence with the correct settings for the final master copy/paste the audio and sync. It will be the same duration, so the sync is easy.

How to export Quicktime Prores 422 in WINDOWS ?
Rafael Vicente (4 years ago)
+Jesse Borkowski Thank you for the help, Jesse!
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
Yes, for high quality. For proxies I usually use DNxHD 36. You could also purchase the Cineform codecs which work on both Mac/PC and are a third option.
Rafael Vicente (4 years ago)
+Jesse Borkowski , it is the "QuickTime DNxHD 1080p 220/185/175 10b" ?
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
ProRes is Mac OS only for exporting. Apple doesn't license the codec for exporting on Windows. You would have to use DNxHD as a replacement instead, or find a friend with a Mac.
yan ma (4 years ago)
Thanks for the great video. At the very last step, import the roundtrip XML back to Premiere, all the clips are imported into the project, but I can't find a timeline sequence file in the folder, just clips. Can you help please?
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
+yan ma Try to locate the file outside of Premiere (just in the OS Finder). If you can find the file there and not in Premiere then it probably has to do with Premiere 5. Otherwise, it wasn't exported properly.
yan ma (4 years ago)
Yes I did that step. After I import the XML into Premiere, I got a folder contains all the graded clips, but no timeline file. I'm using Premiere5, maybe this is why? If so, what can I do to fix it? Thank you very much
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
Did you export the XML from the conform panel after you exported the clips? This step is around 6:00 in the video.
ozzmanzz (4 years ago)
Great video, thanks.
Anthony P (4 years ago)
"Into DaVinci Resolve, push them back out into Premiere CS6, then bring them back in into Resolve"  Is the first step of moving from DaVinci out into Premiere necessary? Why can't I skip that step and start right at editing THEN go into resolve?
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
Because for this workflow you need to create your proxies in Resolve. If you're not using cinemaDNG and not creating proxies then you could start in Premiere and go into Resolve, but that's a totally different workflow.
Way West Media (4 years ago)
Jessee... EXCELLENT workflow for handling the RAW files.
Tyler Stephen Brown (4 years ago)
Great Video! I have a question about rendering proxy resolution. Since I shot in raw @ 2.5k, should I keep my proxy media at that native resolution or convert it down to 1920x1080. I would like a larger resolution just in case I need to do a little cropping/digital zooming, but the footage will be different from other clips I shot in pro res at 1920x1080. Let me know what you think is best. Thanks! 
Way West Media (4 years ago)
If your computer can handle it, keep your proxy files at 2400 x 1350, just turn the quality WAAAAY down. In my testing, I've used 2400 x 1350 H.264 proxies at the lowest quality available. When you are mixing the 2K footage with the ProRes stuff, you can always just "scale to frame size" in Premiere CS6 if there is no cropping or re-framing.
Superbustr (4 years ago)
@Jesse Borkowski What do you export the footage as in adobe premiere?
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
For final delivery? Depends on where it's going... h.264 for the web.
Ben Gill Random Oldies (4 years ago)
Hey Jesse, when I import my XML back into Resolve everything links up except for 'merged' clips from Premiere. Is there any way around this? I can't figure out how to relink the offline files to the correct files in the media pool. Thanks!
FiniteBoy (4 years ago)
Love the tutorial, thanks, just what I needed.  But getting an error when I bring my XML back to resolve (10) from premiere (6)  - ERROR; THE IMPORTED SEQUENCE FRAME RATE (29.97) MUST BE THE SAME AS THE PROJECT FRAME RATE(29.97).  And that's not my typo, both the frame rates are the same...  HELP ME, please :)
FiniteBoy (4 years ago)
Thanks, I'll give that a go.  Also hoping that DR 10.1 will help... :)
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
Make sure the project/timeline settings in Resolve are set to 29.97. Sounds like your sequence frame rate in Premiere doesn't match your Resolve timeline settings.
Question: Why did you export at 24fps and non 23.976fps when you do the first set of proxies out of DaVinci? Is your camera actually shooting at 24 even and not 23.976? Or does it not matter to you. Do you lose quality when you do the proxy rendering step or not?
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
Yes, my camera is actually shooting at 24fps not 23.976.
SSFootballComp (5 years ago)
NEED HELP !  Followed all your steps, and It was going great, until I was making the XML " Round Trip From Resolve " ... When I entered Premier Pro CC and tried to import the XML I got the error  : This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with the sequence type "  When I try to import the clips from the FINAL CC folder they open just fine individually, but that defeats some of the purpose of using the Round Trip as a workflow..
Trylobit (5 years ago)
How do you get Uncompressed 10bit QT to work in Premiere? In my case it says that the file is not supported.
Trylobit (4 years ago)
+Jesse Borkowski Thank you!
Jesse Borkowski (4 years ago)
Make sure you have QT installed or try reinstalling. If you're working on a PC you can also download the DNxHD codecs from Avid for free and use those instead.
Simon Reichel (5 years ago)
hey Jesse, thanks so much for these really helpful uploads! One question though: I'm working on a RED project and I've made the roughcut in Premiere with R3D files and had to do some ramped slomos via Dynamic Link to After Effects. Now how would you proceed with this? I'm pretty sure the XML won't be able to handle those linked ramp-slomos. Grade with the unramped shot and link it back up to ramp after grading?
Christopher Cox (5 years ago)
What happens when we need to send some clips to After Effects ?
RileyGrayVFX (5 years ago)
Can u do this entire process in 2.5k? Or do you have to downscale it? Like say I put warp stabilizer on in premier and it cropped it to 120 would I loose any pixels if the proxy export from resolve was 1080p? Also would you recommend doing visual effects in after effects before or after resolve?

snowconedxx39 (5 years ago)
Yeah, I get the same error as well. I shot in DNxHD with the Cinema Camera, I started in Premiere, cut my footage, exported the project as an .xml, imported that into Resolve, colored the footage, rendered the footage, saved that as a .xml, then went back into Premiere, imported that .xml and I get the same error. Any help would be much appreciated!
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
No, the XML relinks to the original cinemaDNG frames. The proxies are only being used to create the EDL - then the grading/correction is done on the original source material in Resolve.
Hideto (5 years ago)
Are you correcting and grading proxies?
Andrew Clunie (5 years ago)
great video! thanks bud
Ruffneck101 (5 years ago)
Hey, quick question. If I have already edited my project in Premiere and exported that project file as an XML; am I able to import that XML into Davinci, colour correct those clips, then re-export as a XML, load that new XML into premiere and still get the same results? Or do you always have to run your clips through Davinci first?
Eden (5 years ago)
Awesome tutorial! Can you just start in Premiere fist then once you have your cut switch to davinci. I dont get why its necessary to start in davinci. Did you make the proxies in davinci is that why?
Jake Southard (5 years ago)
i did this and lost the audio... where'd the audio go
Francesco Russo (5 years ago)
Same here! Please help!
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Sure, you just need to sync the audio files in Resolve - if the audio files are separate with timecode - or if the audio files are imported with the video clip, just make sure you select export audio on the delivery page. I'm putting up a tutorial for working with a lip dub video and cinemaDNG this week. First part is already up and shows how to export clips with audio. CinemaDNG Workflow - Editing a Multicam Music Video is the title.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
If you try to view the clips outside of Adobe Premiere Pro, do they still have lines on them? Sounds like it could be an export issue. Try a different codec for export from Resolve and see if that helps. Your sequence settings in Premiere should match your proxy export settings from Resolve.
Russell Avery (5 years ago)
Hi Jesse, Great tutorial, I have some RAW files which I used raw2cdng to creat DNg files then followed your tutorial which works fine until i import into Adobe Premiere pro 5.5 and I get multi coloured lines on the areas of the footage. The footage is shot at 1920x818 on 5D MKIII, you say normal set up on AP5 what would your settings be at the beginning of the set up? DLSR 1920x1080 25fps?
Nobody Yet (5 years ago)
Another question... everything is good up until I go to export this proj back to .xml for premiere in the conform tab. I get that step done and when I to import my .xml file into premiere I get a "file import failure" message that reads.."this proj contatined a seq that could not be opned. no seq preview preset file or codec could be associated with this seq type"..Any idea what this is? I'm totally confused.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Make sure you set your in and out points on the delivery timeline to include all clips. If it's exporting all of the clips, but as one file then make sure under Render Timeline As you select "Individual Source Clips."
Ryan Hansen (5 years ago)
Hey Jesse, I keep following your exact steps but when I click render it only renders out one clip. Any idea why?
Mhimhi660 (5 years ago)
u gotta go to preferences and media storage, then select ur folder, then exit and reload and u'll find the new folder on library
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
You can use Adobe Dynamic Link. I just posted a new tutorial about how to use it to send a sequence from Premiere to After Effects for color correction. Hope it helps!
Michael Barakat (5 years ago)
Jesse, I was wondering if you didn't want to color grade in resolve, what could you do? For premiere CS6 if I wanted to grade in after effects, how would I go about that?
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
I'm using an Ikonoskop A-Cam dII. The max resolution is 1920x1080 for that camera. If you're using a bmcc it would relink as 2.5k - or whatever you have your timeline set for. But, the camera I am using is why when I relink it's a 1920x1080 project in this example.
Ten Twenty Seven Films (5 years ago)
GREAT TUTORIAL! my only question is, how can you import the 2.5k bmcc footage into resolve, export proxies of that 2.5k footage so they can be edited even on a macbook, then bring them back to resolve for grading, and then (here is my actual question) relink the proxies BACK to the 2.5k files to export the final film either from premiere or resolve (preferably premiere)? The only reason I ask is because I noticed when you bring the xml back to resolve it reads it as a 1920x1080 project.
Dillon Pearce (5 years ago)
Thanks this video helped me a lot. Just wondering if transitions and simple effects will be send over to resolve? And if they don't then when I import the .xml back to Premiere AFTER colour grading will it have those effects/transitions applied to the newly created graded files? Thanks!
Hi Jesse, for me .xml doesn't work, but .edl does the trick. The problem is that I loose the audio track. Do you have an idea why?
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Are all of your source clips in the media pool? If so, you can try to force conform the clips, but if you lost timecode somehow it might not relink properly.
Elijah Cooper (5 years ago)
i have already edited my video in premiere and now when I am trying to import the xml into da vinci it says mo media pool source clips could be found. HELP??
Christian Marte (5 years ago)
hi great tutorial thanks. i have one little problem. wehen i apply a correction to one clip after i reimported the xml into resolve the nodes are at all clips. how can i fix that? i use the lite version. thx
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Sorry, R3D is not my area of expertise.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Not exactly sure if I understand your problem, but if it's linking to the wrong clips and you know what the correct clips are, you can use 'force conform' in the conform panel to link the correct clips in the timeline.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
If you add hard drives to the library you will need to exit and restart Resolve before the changes will take effect.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Depends what you are doing. If you're not working with cinemaDNG, don't want to create proxies, and your camera records a format Premiere can read natively, then you could start with premiere and finish in Resolve. This example is if you're working with cinemaDNG.
UNCLEBOB (5 years ago)
Can I just start with premiere and then finished it at Davinci to save the extra trip ?
Vj One (5 years ago)
Great tutorial. When would you recommend After Effects on this workflow. Before returning from PPro to Resolve or after Color correction/grading?
SSFootballComp (5 years ago)
Hey Jesse ! I've got a problem! Is there a way to change the Library you see at the left top corner of the screen in DaVinci Resolve ? I've got it in my C-drive at the moment, the problem is that the disc is running out of space. When I try to change this, by going to General Options - Working Folders and change the setting, they turn back to default when I hit " apply"... Hope you can help! Thank you
ulysses adams (5 years ago)
I noticed a slight gamma shift when I export out of resolve to premiere using Avid DNxHD. I switched from DNxHD to using Quick Uncompressed but there is still a shift and it makes it a bit darker. Have you experienced this? If so, are there any workarounds? Pro Res seems to be the perfect codec with no gamma shifts but I am on Windows :(

Have you worked with R3D files at all? I'm trying to learn Davinci and just bought a red camera. Just wondering if this workflow will work. Thanks!
Daylan Jones (5 years ago)
Hey Jesse, I love your tuts. I have a problem, after I bring in my XML file from PP it keeps linking back to my raw footage, not the edit I did in premiere. The crazy thing is the time of the edit is correct but the footage is wrong. Its kind of confusing but any help would be appreciated, thanks.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
It's really hard to diagnose individual editing systems online, but here are a couple of thoughts - make sure you've downloaded and installed Quicktime, try uninstalling and re-installing DaVinci Resolve (make sure to back up your database first), if you still can't see mpeg 4 you can use another codec for proxies. Hope that helps.
Milind Swamy (5 years ago)
Hi thanks a lot for tutorials but i cannot import clip in avid i am getting the error message " you cannot import this file into a bin, see the documentation for information about transferring media files" premier when i when i try to select final cut pro aaf option, then quicktime mpeg 4 this option is not listed on my davinci resolve, i am using davinci resolve 9, media composer 6 & premier cs6, windows platform please help me to solve this problem.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Export the timeline from Premiere Pro as XML and then import the XML into DaVinci using the conform panel - just pick the timeline you want to import form the drop down menu in the import dialogue box
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Yup. All my tutorials are done with Lite.
Michael Savidge (5 years ago)
Thank you so much for this tutorial from an avid Premiere Pro user! Out of curiosity, will this work with Da Vinci Lite?
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Thank you!
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Not really, 10bit Quicktime has worked fine for me, but that's just one way to go. I'd use whatever works best for you and the way you are delivering your content. There are a lot of situations where 10bit Quicktime would not make sense.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Because I am working on a PC.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Missed this comment, so hopefully you already figured this out. If not, you need to select all of the clips - either right click on the timeline area and select 'Select All' or you can set an in and out point for the media you want to export.
Alex Joseski (5 years ago)

Simon Weir (5 years ago)
Hi Dave, For Davinci what monitoring option have you gone for? Do you know if there is something that will i/o for both adobe Pr and Ae as well as Resolve Lite? Good to know your thoughts. Simon
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Not exactly sure, but if you moved the source files you might need to relink the media. If the source files are missing in the media pool then choose the clips you need to relink right click and select 'change source folder' then navigate to where your clips are and select them.
RawrBell (5 years ago)
Hey Jesse, thank you for the straight-forward tutorial! After following the video, I seem to have encountered a problem when importing my XML file into Resolve; this would occur during 4:50 of this tutorial. When unchecking "Automatically import source clips into media pool", and clicking OK, my files don't simply relink to the original DNG files in Resolve. Instead, I get an error telling me that my video clip (exported proxy file) is missing. Any ideas as to how I can fix this? Thank you!
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
The cinemaDNG footage. Make sure you deselect automatically import source clips into media pool (those would be the QT proxies) when you bring the project back into Resolve and it will easily relink to cinemaDNG.
Hey Jesse, great video, but just out of curiosity, after you create proxies for importing into Premiere Pro, when you come back to Resolve for grading, will the grade be performed on the QT proxies or on your cinemaDNG footage? Can you relink to your cinemaDNG? Clearly that'll produce a much better grade.
turningkorean (5 years ago)
Thanks dude. I will subscribe.
ctmctavish (5 years ago)
Thanks, Jesse, for the tutorial. Another option, if you don't have too many instances of clips from same source clips, is to go to your master timeline on the conform page and put a cut in the master clip between the out of the earlier clip and the in of the later. Each clip in the conform will then be treated independently. Or you can use an edl to "split and add" media to the media pool if the edl is formatted correctly and you have the proper reel name support options selected in set up.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
You need to create a new local or remote version. This tutorial is part of another series, but it will show you what you need to do. I can't post a link in the comments, but it's the 'Creating the Look: 1940's Glamour - Part 3: Remote and Local Versions' tutorial
turningkorean (5 years ago)
Thanks for the round trip tutorial. In your tutorial, when you are color correcting the close up of the woman, you made a separate grade to each before rendering. Both of them are from the same clip and when I try this, both are corrected for the same grade. How can you make separate grades for split clips that come from the same media clip?
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Not sure what step you are talking about... but you're not going to be able to deliver your final product in cinemaDNG, so yes, you are going to lose quality. You just need to try and maintain the highest quality for whatever your delivery format is - if you're going to the web you're going to throw away most of your data when you compress. If you're going to something else you may want to export the master right from Resolve, but I doubt you'd be able to see quality loss one generation away.
CESAR LUIS (5 years ago)
hi, dont you lose quality in that render-render process??
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
Yeah, you could definitely just export the final product from DaVinci. I was just showing that you could go back into Premiere if you needed/wanted to. Maybe if you want to add a transition that's not supported by Resolve, etc.
Troy Murray (5 years ago)
Awesome work man, this was great, answered a lot of my questions. I'm curious why you would have to got back into Premiere though, what other edits would you be doing? Can you export the final product from Davinci?
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
There's a windows configuration guide on the Blackmagic website that will answer a lot of your questions. In the support section. The three biggest areas are probably hard drive speed, graphics card (GPU) and RAM. I'm running a single GPU system with a Quadro 4000 and 16GB of RAM. For hard drive speed it depends, but you probably want to be running a RAID of some sort (either 5 or 0). Just depends how you're backing up your footage and how much data you need to access at once.
Jesse Borkowski (5 years ago)
You don't need two video cards, actually if you're using Resolve Lite it only supports one card. However, you do need to be using a graphics card that supports CUDA - there's a supported list on the Blackmagic website - but some examples are the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 video card with 3072 MB GDDR5 SDRAM, NVIDIA Quadro 4000, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 video card with 4096 GDDR5 SDRAM. Take a look at the support section at BM there is a windows or mac configuration guide you can download.
