Working in a big project with lots of footage? Here’s some tools to help you get organized.
DaVinci Resolve has a keyword metadata section where you can tag each clip in your media pool with one or more keywords.
If you’re working with a lot of B-Roll, you might want to use this to tag the footage with what’s in the shot.
Or you might use that to keep track of which shots take place in a certain location. It’s flexible, so tag keywords however you’d like.
Then you can use those keywords to create Smart Bins, so that you can have easy-to-access bins that are dynamically generated based on your keywords or any other metadata applied to your clips.
In this video from Learn Color Grading, you’ll learn about:
