Timeline Backups

Are you using timeline backups?

DaVinci Resolve has the ability to save versions of your timeline on a regular basis.

So if you ever make a mistake or want to see how you had things previously, you can!

My preference is to manually duplicate timelines and have a new version for major changes, at least when I’m working on long narrative projects.

Though for short form and other types of videos I stick to one timeline. So this feature is a great way to make sure you don’t lose your work!

In this video from Chris Roberts Video Production & Training, you’ll learn how to:

  • 00:27 Find Current Timeline In Media Pool
  • 01:10 Manually duplicating timeline
  • 02:10 Restore Timeline Backups

  1. Appreciate the workflow tips.
    Typically the mistake of not setting the bin/destination “before” recording can be an issue, especially finding the recording later in the event you accidentally record while in a Power Bin.
