I'm not sure. I know that coloring Cineform RAW files in FirstLight does not require a render. It is simply a manipulation of metadata. You can color the files while they are open in Premiere and the color will change immediately. And if you want to change it later you just change it in FirstLight or Cineform Studio. It is literally non-destructive. Anything that requires a render would be destructive.

Re: DaVinci Resolve Lite (can I use it?)

I am admittedly totally new to DaVinci Resolve. I am thus far not sure it provide any better processes than CS5 or Vegas I have. The one thing that I've seen but haven yet used, is selective color correction, but these are things that can be done in things like Colorista, etc. So far, from what I can see, the intructions at the end to save you current work to a final file. Of course, that doesnt' do anything to your original files, as they remain pristine, but from what I can see so far, it doesn't work like Cineform's Firstlight/Studio process where you are actually changing instruction in the original file as to how the computer will render it to the screen for viewing. I went through the concept of Resolve in the manual (Chapter 1, I think) and it seemed to indicate that process is to open the file, make the changes, edit clips etc., and then render out for work in other editors.

Re: DaVinci Resolve Lite (can I use it?)

Here's a terribly silly question
my photoshop has an Import> Blackmagic image importer
However, even when my cam is hooked up - it wont recognize. (no BMDevice installed)
so I think it must refer to a BM card

I would love to be able to grade the way you to a Raw Dng in Pshp
and have it apply to the entire clip

Hey Chris,

I've only poked around Davinci a bit and never really used it on a project, but since colorista is a plug-in that works inside your NLE, you are exactly right that it is non-destructive to the original media. When you render/export your project, the original media is not changed. The same way that cutting your media inside premiere doesn't change the length of the original media... same deal.
