How to use Blackmagic Cloud


How can I use Blackmagic Cloud?


In an environment where Windows and mac coexist, data transfer will be explained in a configuration that synchronizes manually.

If you use a service such as "DropBox" or "google Drive" for data delivery and automatically synchronize, the folder that is automatically synchronized with the cloud server such as "DropBox" or "google Drive" will be saved later. It can be used by setting it in the same way as the sync folder explained.

Please refer to the following article for server preparation before use.

Using DaVinci Resolve Project Server on Blackmagic Cloud


Project settings

I created it with the name "NEW-Project".

When you press Share, an email will be sent to the person you have shared with, informing them that it is now available.

Create a project on the cloud

Select "Cloud" in "Project Manager" and sign in.

When you sign in, the project library created on the browser will be displayed.

I'll explain step-by-step later, but since it's an easy point to trip up, I'll explain it in advance.
At this time, the menu to enable the collaboration function is not displayed yet.

Once you've saved a project in some way and have it open, you'll be able to make selections like this.

It's hard to understand, but it seems that this behavior is due to the assumption that the administrator will prepare materials, etc. before enabling the collaboration function.

==Supplementary up to here===

This time, once the preparations are completed, the procedure for enabling the collaboration function will be explained.

Once open "Untitled Project" as it is

Add the material to be used this time to the media pool. In our example, we added the following folders by dragging them into the media pool:

D:\Windows Environment\February Project\R17 Beginners Guide lessons\Lesson 01

Next, prepare the path mapping settings so that when you open the file on another PC, you can automatically refer to files within the range that can be accessed from the other PC.

Select [File]-[Project Settings]

Select <Add> in the "Path Mapping" tab

Select which folder to set as the save destination.

In this example, I selected "D:\Windows environment\February project\R17 Beginners Guide lessons". The information will be registered as follows, so after confirming <Save>

It is a setting to replace the path folder (directory) of "save destination" with "local path", but at this time there is no need to replace it, so you can save it as it is.

If there are three environments, A, B, and C, and each adds data and operates, each needs to make settings for each, but this time we will take the simplest configuration as an example. I'm here. (Furthermore, if the same folder structure matches from the top of the folder, path mapping is unnecessary.)


Setting PCDestinationlocal path
A.A's path
B's pathlocal path for B
Path of Clocal path for C
B.A's pathlocus path for A
B's path
Path of Clocal path for C
C.A's pathlocus path for A
B's pathlocal path for B
Path of C

(Although it's a little messy...) Now that the data and path mapping are ready, it's time to enable the collaboration feature.

Save the project once. Select Ctrl+S or [File]-[Save Project]

Set an appropriate name and <Save>

Then start the project manager

Right click on the project and select <multi-user collaboration>

There will be a mark in the upper right to indicate that collaboration is enabled.

You are now ready to go.

Settings on other PCs

Next, set up on another PC.

Sign in as a project manager.

You will see what has already been saved.

However, even if you open "Collaboration 200302", broken links will occur. This is because the path mapping settings on this PC have not been completed.

Select [File]-[Project Settings]

When you open the "Path Mapping" tab, "D:\Windows environment\February project\R17 Beginners Guide lessons", which was originally set on the PC, will be displayed as the save destination. Specify a local path for this. Select "Browse"

Select the corresponding path.

point! ! ! At this time, it is necessary to match the name of the lowest level of the original folder "Destination" with the name of the lowest level of the newly set local path.


This will fix the broken link.

Even if you save this and open it on the original PC, you can open it without problems because the original PC does not replace it with path mapping and display it.

Path mapping unaware method

It is also possible to set the path mapping automatically by executing "Relink Media". However, in the case of this method, it has been confirmed that the path mapping is not automatically set. (I'm checking when it becomes a problem.)

Although it depends on the editing site, it is recommended to set the "path mapping" manually by grouping files for each project. Using "Relink media" may be convenient when the locations of the material being edited are scattered, but as a result you will not know where and what is, so use "Path mapping" is recommended.

Save "Road.mp4" in the following folder and copy it to

D:\Windows environment\add

At this point,

LUT settings

In the participating environment, it is necessary to align the hierarchy under the LUT folder managed by DaVinci Resolve.

For example, on this PC, there is "YouTube_LUT" in addition, and I will explain when using it.

If you open the project on a PC that does not have the correct folder hierarchy, a dialog box will appear stating that the LUT cannot be applied.

Also, if you check the LUT information on the node to which the LUT is applied, an "x" will be added next to the LUT name.

The workaround is to save it as it was originally. For the save location, right-click the appropriate folder and select "Open file location" (Windows) or "Open in Finder" (mac)

Check the hierarchy of the opened Explorer or Finder, move to the "LUT" folder, and match the position of the hierarchy below it.

Macintosh HD\Library\Application Support\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\LUT\

C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Support\LUT\

For example, if "YouTube_LUT" is stored in the following folder,

Macintosh HD\Library\Application Support\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\LUT\addition

On another PC, add a folder aligned as follows and copy "YouTube_LUT" there.

C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Support\LUT\additions

Macintosh HD\Library\Application Support\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\LUT\addition

After restarting DaVinci Resolve, the LUT will be available on other PCs. (Right-click the "LUT" folder on the color page and just "Update" may be enough.)
