Resolve Collect – User Guide

Introduction

Resolve Collect copies source files used in a DaVinci Resolve project (Media Pool or Timeline) to a single destination using a DaVinci Resolve Project (.drp) file.

When you work with large DaVinci Resolve projects with sources on a lot of different drives you might want to collect them to one destination. Resolve Collect will copy just the files you need, either before you start grading to get them on a fast RAID or after you are done to Backup the project.

Installing & Updates

Bought via MyCommerce

Download the demo version and unzip it. Put it in your Applications folder and start the software.

Register

Go to the Resolve Collect -> Register menu and enter the Username and Key you received in the e-mail from MyCommerce.

When there is new version you need to download the demo version from the website and it will automatically recognise that you already registered it.

 

Prerequisites

Resolve Collect should run on the same machine as DaVinci Resolve, to be sure that the file pathes are the same.

Export1
You need to export a DRP file from DaVinci Resolve. Select File-> Export Project.

Export2

Basic use

Start by selecting the destination where you want your files to be copied

Load the DRP file which you exported from DaVinci Resolve

Resolve Collect will scan through the DRP and find the Media Pool and Timelines. It will check if it can find the source files and tell you in the Status column.

Select the Media Pool or one of the timelines and select copy. Now the files will get copied
