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

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.

how to use

Read the User Guide and this tutorial for more information on how to use Resolve Collect.


Download the demo-version.

The demo-version will process the whole Media-Pool, but you can not copy it. It will let you copy the first 5 sources in each Timeline.

Resolve Collect is not yet compatible with Resolve 18. We are in beta right now, so hopefully it’s released soon. 

To buy and register the demo-version, and get the full functionality, please visit MyCommerce and buy it for €45
