First flight tonight and Resolve (free) cannot open the H.265 HEVC files created by the drone. :-(
EDIT: found this article: Transcode and Import H.265/HEVC to DaVinci Resolve |
No. But yes. But not really. Say your final product is going to be the widely used 8bit h.264 in the rec 709 colorspace. You will “lose” the benefits of the h.265 and the wide dynamic range and color gamut that the Mavic 2 captures in. BUT you get to choose which parts you retain and which parts you lose. And you’ll have the original material to work with for delivery to a higher quality codec and color space. In other words it will be easier to push around shadows, highlights and colors while you edit, before you render out. It’s kind of like capturing in 4K even though you will ultimately deliver in 1080P.Downloaded the free resolve and it opens it fine. I just need a degree in quantum mechanics to figure it out.....lol. Question, if I film in h.265 and convert to h.264 do I still retain all the wonderful benefits of h.265? Oh, and the free version does handle 4K.
