Resolve Collect


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, .drb, .drt) file from V9, V10, V11, V12, V12.5, V14, V15, V16 and V17 or Resolve Collect Project file from V18 and V18,5. Or you can load an XML exported from for example Adobe Premiere.

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.
