Speaker 2: OTAN, Outreach and Technical Assistance Network.
Paul Yung: Anthony mentioned that we're going to be doing DaVinci Resolve and video editing. I noticed that Linda Minor applauded. Linda, do you do video editing?
Speaker 3: Yeah, I teach a video editing class using online resources, is the title. But we've never used anything as complex as DaVinci.
Paul Yung: But you know about DaVinci Resolve.
Speaker 3: Sort of.
Paul Yung: Oh, great, great. Thank you. Thank you.
Speaker 3: No, I don't know it yet. So I'm contemplating, do I want to get that complex. That's why I'm here.
Paul Yung: OK, fantastic. Thank you for coming. Anybody else? I just want to get an idea of the audience so that I can tailor my presentation to you. If you're all beginners or some more technically intermediate or advanced? Do we have anyone else who does video editing?
Speaker 4: Paul, the only thing I've used is Screencastify. It's taken over my life. And I'm limited. And I thought, oh, I'm kind of curious what this is, right? Because we seem to be making a lot of videos for the teachers and--
Paul Yung: Karen, I'm so glad to hear it. OK. First of all, the exciting thing is DaVinci Resolve is state of the art. It's state-of-the-art Hollywood post-production. And there's a version that's for free. OK. And it can be very, very complex in the things that it can do. It can work magic. And it can also be very simple.
Speaker 2: Good.
Paul Yung: That is on you.
Speaker 2: Now you're talking my language. And I want you to think about it in terms of, for example, Microsoft Word, right? I use Microsoft Word, but there are only 30 buttons that I know, right, like bold, indent, underline, choose your font, choose your-- and I've been using Microsoft Word for 25 years. But I only know 30 buttons. All those other things aren't--
So just keep that in mind. That's the frame of mind we're going to start from, OK. You're going to be overwhelmed by the options and the choices, but you just need to know maybe 30 to 50 buttons, depending on how much to get started. OK. So here we go. All right, thank you for joining me. And I'm very happy to see you guys here.
This is the Creating and Editing Videos in DaVinci Resolve webinar. OK. So today, I'm going to walk you through the software. It's more of an introduction-- what we're going to be doing today, and a demonstration of the software. And we're going to do that by turning a CTE classroom exercise into a video lesson.
And in the process, I want you to see what the possibilities are and start thinking about how you might use DaVinci Resolve to produce interesting visually engaging content for your class. It's not so much of a technical webinar today, but an introduction. However, I will give you enough tips to get started.
As with any kind of program, we always have to start with some system requirements. Right? So for DaVinci Resolve, they have three versions-- one that runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux. The base requirement that the company Blackmagic Design that makes DaVinci Resolve requires 16 gigabytes of RAM, 4 gigabytes of video RAM, and 250 gigabytes of hard drive.
You might not have 8 gigabytes of RAM, but I think you might not have 16. If you have 8 gigabytes, that might be enough because DaVinci Resolve is designed to be used for very large video files, the kind of stuff that you see on television, or commercials, feature films.
For example, the videos that I'm going to use today were shot on my iPhone. They were shot on my iPhone. And I'm using my eight-year-old iMac. And it works fine. So DaVinci Resolve is made by a company called Blackmagic design. Let's go to their website.
I'm going to open my browser. And I'm going to type in backmagic.com, Black-- and because I've used it before, it's already popped up right here. And this is their home page. As you can see, they make a lot of hardware. If you scroll down, you see Introducing DaVinci Resolve 17 right here.
So I'm going to click on this. And there's a fabulous introduction here to DaVinci Resolve. We're not going to watch this whole thing. I'm just going to come down and show you that it's right here-- Download Now. This is how much they want you to use it.
If you click on this, here you'll see two versions. The latest version is 17. And you decide if you want it on your Mac, Windows, or Linux machine. This one is free. This is the Studio version that you have to pay about $300 for. And the Studio version includes things that you will never use.
For example, if you see here's this 3D tools. We're not going to be making any 3D tools. So we don't have to worry about that. So if you click, for example-- I'm on a Mac, so I would click this. And all you have to do is fill out your name and maybe answer these two questions. Register and Download. And you're good to go.
So what is DaVinci Resolve? Here's the exciting thing about this program. 15 years ago, DaVinci Resolve was only a color corrector, a color grading system. That means they work on the color aspect of a video production. And it was $5,000.
But this company Blackmagic Design, you see their logo here on the upper right, they bought it and they added a host of other features. Here you can see there's a Media page. There's a Cut page and the Edit page. These two are for editing. There's a Fusion page for special effects. There's a Color page for color grading and color correction. And there's a Fairlight page for audio mixing and recording. And the Delivery page is where you output your finished video.
So this company bought it, DaVinci Resolve and expanded on it. And it is making it available to the public because they want to expand the use of it. So here are some of the features. We're going to look at the Edit page. This is the Edit page. This is what we're going to spend the majority of our time today.
We're going to import a video. We're going to learn how to mark clips. Mark clips means to your in and out points for the section of the video that you want. We're going to talk about this seven ways to edit your clips-- insert, overwrite, replace, Fit to Fill, place on top, append at end, ripple overwrite. And we're going to go over these trimming tools.
And again, I just want to emphasize that although I will go through these features with you, if they're a little bit over your head, don't worry about it. I want you to look at the overall presentation today more than the specifics to see what is possible. And I'm going to give you more tools at the end of the webinar, how you can learn these skills and how you can perfect these skills.
So we're going to go through all of this today, transitions, titles. OK. This is the Color page. And this is where you will be doing your color correction, and color balancing, color grading. And this is what DaVinci Resolve is known for. Out of all the television shows you watch, all of the feature films on Netflix, Disney, over 60% of them are color graded with this software application.
This is the Fusion page. We're not going to talk about this today. This is something I'll let you explore on your own. But you can see this example here, what's going on is they're doing compositing with a 3D model. So this is very advanced stuff, and I'll give you a little glimpse into it. But we won't be delving into that today.
This is the Fairlight page. And this is where you can build your audio tracks. You can record and mix the sound.
The Media page is where you bring in your media and you output your clips. So at the very top here, you can see there's an introduction to every aspect of DaVinci Resolve, including hardware. But notice here on the upper right, a Training tab. This is really fantastic stuff.
DaVinci Resolve has produced these videos that teach you how to edit, the art of color grading. This one, you don't need because it's for people who have purchased this Mini Panel.
But visual effects and graphics, visual effects and 3D audio production, you can download. You can watch the video file here, or you can download the video and the project files and follow along. So if you want to learn the details, you can do this on your own time today. It's a general introduction to show you what's possible.
So that's DaVinci Resolve. I'm going to launch the program here while I talk about the next thing. I'm going to launch DaVinci Resolve. What are you going to learn today? We're going to import and export video. We're going to go through some video editing basics, create some titles, transitions, color, record narration. We're going to do a basic sound mix.
This is the whole process you will go through to make a polished video. And we're going to do it with a real world project that I did for a class of mine. I am currently an IET instructor. I am partnered with a CTE Cosmetology Teacher at my school. She teaches the CTE cosmetology class. I am the ESL teacher. I help my students with the academic and language skills.
She gave her students an assignment to partner up, choose a salon service, write out the steps, and perform them. So the students decided to do makeup. And these were the steps to accomplish the task that they outlined.
Cleanse the skin with aloe vera wipes is the first step, right. While they were doing the make up process, I videotaped it with my iPhone. So you can start making videos with your iPhone.
So here, DaVinci Resolve has opened up. I'm going to start a new project. This is Untitled Project. So I'm just going to double click on it. This is the menu that is offered to you after you launch the program. I'm going to click Untitled Project.
And here, throughout this training, I understand that your video screen might look very big and it might be hard to follow along. But I'm going to be shaking my cursor. Can everyone see my cursor?
And I won't be directing your attention. I might say, look at the top of the screen, look at the left of the screen, look at the upper left corner, the upper right corner, or the bottom. OK. And I want to be shaking my screen, so look for my vibrating cursor.
So right now, I want to direct your attention to the bottom of the screen. You can see here are the tabs to the different pages of the software that the website showed us-- Media, Cut, Edit, Fusion, Color, Fairlight, and Deliver.
So this is the first page. The Media page is where we're going to bring in our media, where we're going to import the media. On the upper left corner, DaVinci Resolve automatically locates all the hard drives you have on your computer or that you have connected to your computer. So I have all my hard drives here. I'm going to go to the one where my video is.
And it happens to be here, the IET video hard drive. As you can see, it's right here connected to my computer via USB 3. And it shows up here in DaVinci Resolve.
So I want to find the videos that I recorded of my students doing the makeup exercise. This is the first one. And this is the last one. So I've selected all the videos that I shot that day. And I'm just going to drag it into this media pool.
Now all of the videos are in my project. It's that simple. It's that simple to import media. On your Media page, you find your hard drive and the folder where the videos are. Highlight them and just drag them into the media pool. And now you can work with them.
The first page is the Cut page. The Cut page was just added recently, a few years ago, and is basically editing. It's where you edit. But there's also another one called the Edit Page. And they do the similar things. They are similar. Supposedly, the Edit page has a few features that will help you accelerate your workflow to meet tight deadlines.
I'm used to the Edit page. So I'm just going to stick with that. But if you want to, you can start editing your videos here. As you can see, once you import the media from the Media page, they automatically appear on the Cut page. And I'm going to go to the Edit page because that's what I'd prefer.
If I go to the Edit page and I-- look here at the media pool on the upper left corner, you can see a selection of tabs. One of them is media pool. I click on that, and all the videos are here. if I look at the first video, this is the first step that the students did to perform the makeup exercise.
And just as a reminder, what was the first step? Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. So I have my source window on the left. And I'm just going to randomly-- You can scroll through the whole video clip through this timeline at the bottom. And you decide what part of the clip do I want to use.
You decide by setting it, say I want to start my clip here. I can set an in point here. I can click this. And I'm going to play. And I'm going to click out point here. So as you can see, I'm going to use this portion of this clip because I've set an in point here and I've set an out point here by clicking these two arrows here.
And I can just drag this into my timeline. And this is my project. Is that easy? Launch your clip by clicking on here, decide which part of the clip you want by clicking the in and the out point and just drag it in here. And you're good to go.
So I'm going to go back to that original clip. And, say, I want to use this part. I can click these arrows to set my in point, my new in point or our point, or I can go here. Mark in on the top, or I can use this shortcut. The shortcut is I for in. The shortcut for the out is the O. So every chance you get, learn to use the shortcuts. It's going to help you work a lot faster and more efficiently.
So I want to use my I for in and O for out. You can see my old in and out points are here. But as soon as I touch I on my keyboard, it just resets the in point. And I'm going to choose an out point here. And again, I can just drag that in to my clip. And now this is my project. And you can see the Edit here.
My project is over here on the right. This is the resource viewer window. This is the project window. And you can see that I have an Edit right there. So here, I'm going to try this cut here.
And here's another clip. It's unfortunately upside down. It was one of those weird moments where my iPhone was not able to find its equilibrium. And it just recorded the thing upside down because I was doing this a lot moving around. And I'm going to set my in point here by pressing I and will let the clip play.
And I want to set my out point there. Instead of just dragging it into the timeline, there's another way to edit. I could drag this clip to the next window. And now I have a menu of options. I could insert the video, overwrite, replace, Fit to Fill, placed on top, append that in, or ripple override.
I'm just going to append it at the end. And you can see here it was added at the end. So let's go back to the Edit page to talk about some of these options. So we mark the clip by setting our in and out points.
We dragged the clips into the timeline to create our projects. And we are going to learn the Insert, Edit. Insert is when you put a clip between two other clips. OK. And you have several options of doing that.
Because some of these clips, they look similar, I'm going to choose something that's totally different, like this close-up. I'm going to randomly set an in point here and an out point here. Look at where my timeline is. My timeline is right here between the clips. And I want to put insert.
And look what happens. This clip of the close-up is inserted between these two clips. And if ever you do something that you didn't want to do, you could always undo. So one thing I want you to understand is that do not be afraid to try things because just like Microsoft Word or any other program, you can undo.
Look here in the Edit page, on the Edit undo. OK. So I can undo that. And I'm back to where I was. So what I did was I chose Insert when I dragged this over and inserted the clip in between the two clips.
The next option is overwrite. That means I'm going to place the clip here, Insert puts the clip between the two other clips and moves the clips on the right further back. You can see Overwrite puts the clip here and it erases. That's what overwrite means. It erases the clips that are in that space.
I'm going to demonstrate here. And what you can see the display here is covering this shot right so over. Is going to erase part of that clip. So it erased everything that was here before. I want to undo that. So Insert inserts the clip between two clips and pushes the clips on the right further down.
The Overwrite puts the clip where your playhead is and erases the existing clips in that space. Replace is just going to replace that clip. So if I have this clip here and I choose Replace, it's just going to switch this clip for that clip. And it doesn't change the length. So you can see that's what happened here.
And again, I want to undo. I'm going to undo to bring the old clip back and Fit to Fill. So Fit to Fill is similar to replace, but what it does is that it's going to take the length of the clip that you have and either make it speed it up to fit a smaller space or slow it down to fit a longer space.
This might be hard to understand at first, but let me demonstrate. I'm going to shorten this clip. I want to make it really short. And notice how I'm going to Fit to Fill. This is a short clip that is going to replace a long clip. Fit to Fill.
So you can see how this was slowed down to fit that space, OK, to fit that space here. I'm going to undo that. So that's what Fit to Fill does.
I have a longer clip that I want to fit in a smaller space. So I'm going to speed it up so that it'll fit, and vise versa. If you have a short clip that you want to fill into a longer space, it's going to slow it down to make it play longer.
So here Place on Top. So if I choose this, I choose Place on Top, it's just going to put it above. And you might want to do that because if you're not sure. I'm not sure if I want this clip here. So I'm just going to place it on top.
I want to undo that. And we did a pin to end. And then Ripple Overwrite means that it's going to overwrite this and adjust the size. Watch. So it took away the other clip and it brought this one in.
Those are the basic editing features. And you can practice on your own to master them. So right now let's talk about trimming. Trimming is important because when you edit a clip, you're going to make little adjustments to make that edit sharper, to make the edit smooth. And you're going to do a roll. You're going to do a ripple, a slip, or a slide.
Let me find one more clip here. Oh, this one. I'm going to go back here. And I want to use this clip. So remember, you can drag clips into the timeline. You can drag clips to the right. And you have this menu option. There are icons here. There are three editing icons.
You can see, if I hover my cursor over this, it says Insert Clip. You can click here, or you can use the shortcut F9. I'm going to click here. And I've inserted that clip. So right now we're talking about trimming. Trimming is how you make your cuts cleaner, smoother, and more fluid.
And these are the things that you do. You roll, ripple, slip, and slide. So here, in order to activate the Trim mode, I'm going to click on this icon here. If I hover my cursor over it and let it sit for a second, the name comes up along with the keyboard shortcut, Trim Edit mode.
I can click on this icon, or I can press T. I'm going to click on this. And what does this do? You can see I get this current, this funny looking cursor with two brackets back to back. And if I click on this at that point, I can move it around. I could move it to the left. And I could move it to the right.
And if you look at the screen here on the left side, you'll see the tail of this clip. And then you'll see the head of this clip. And you could decide, oh, is this going to match?
If I do this in my match, right now they're starting to look similar. Let's see what happens. So moved it over here. So that matched pretty well, right, because I moved, I rolled my edit over.
So Roll means that you're going to choose to edit, and you're going to move it to the left or to the right. Ripple, if you notice the green, you're just going to choose one side. You're going to choose one side to lengthen or shorten.
So here, I'm just going to-- instead of putting the cursor in the middle, I want to lean to one side. And here I can make this clip shorter or longer. But the right clip stays the same. Similarly if I hover on this clip, I can make this shorter or longer.
So you can move both at the same time or you can affect one side of the Edit, either side of the Edit. So that's a ripple. Slip is when you do this. When you want to take the whole clip and just move it around, you're not changing the in or out points. So notice these in or out points do not change, but the content changes. That's what a slip does.
Slide is when you slide the whole clip to the left or the right. And if I move this cursor a little bit further down, you can see the icon has changed. Now I can slide the clip to the left and to the right.
I know that was a lot, right. But don't worry. We're planting the seed right now in your head about what's possible and how you're going to be working with these tools. When you decide to work with the software and you go through the tutorials, you'll see clearly how they work. Believe me, it's not that hard.
What's next? So I'm just going to fix one thing. So let's use these tools. These Trim tools, you use to perfect cuts. So I like starting the second cut here. So I'm going to to use this Ripple tool to bring the Edit there. And now maybe I'll even shorten that some more.
And now notice this cut from this shot to the next shot. That matches nicely. These are the only clips I'm going to use today. In order to have more screen real estate to work with, I'm going to close this media pool by clicking on this tab on the upper left corner. I'm going to close that media pool. And I'm not going to be looking at any more source clips.
So I'm going to click this icon in the upper right just to have one window. And that way I won't get distracted. So remember, this clip was upside down, right, because my iPhone, it just couldn't find its equilibrium for this one shot. So I'm going to click on it.
Look at this icon here on the upper right that says Inspector. I have options to change certain parameters. I can Zoom in. You see how I can Zoom in on that shot if I wanted to. I'm going to undo to go back to normal state.
I can change the position. It might be hard for you to see it, but there's a slider here that says Rotation Angle. So I can change the rotation. I could flip it.
But this is hard to get just right with this slider. Luckily, I remember my middle school math. What I really need is 180 degrees. So I'm just going to type that in. I'm going to type in 180 and click Enter and boom. It's perfect. So I just flipped it 180 degrees.
Let me adjust this cut now. The first shot-- hey, let's change this clip color so that we recognize this first shot. I'm going to change that first clip to orange, change the second clip to blue, change the third clip to maybe green so that we can recognize them. So the first clip, maybe I could even tighten that up a little bit more, right.
I needed that Trim mode. Remember the keyboard shortcut with T. Watch this icon switch to red when I hit T on my keyboard. There you go. Now I'm in Trim mode. You can see that this icon has changed. I'm going to drive this closer.
And if I play this, that's a nice change. And I'm going to go from here to maybe there. And I want to make this clip a lot longer. So this is so far what we have.
OK, so we heard a lot of background noise. And we know there's no dialogue here. So here on the audio track, I'm just going to click mute to shut that off. So now when we play it, we won't hear that noise from the soundtrack. And whenever you don't need a window, you should close it so that you can use more of your screen.
So the Inspector here on the upper right that I used to flip that screen, I'm just going to click Inspector again to close it. So this is the first step. Cleanse the skin with aloe vera wipes. So I'm going to copy that because I'm not very good at typing. And I want to add a title here.
So let me direct your attention to the upper left corner. We had the media pool. The media pool is where all your clips are. We don't need that, so I'm going to close that. And now I want to open the Effects Library.
So here, look at all these titles that are just pre-made for you. If you roll over them, you can audition them. Sometimes if you scroll left and right, you can see the animation. Look at this, there's a ton of them. This is really cool, right.
So I know which one I want, and I don't want to go down and look at all of these and try to read. I'm going to go to the Search. I'm going to click on this and I'm going to type in dark box text, because I know that's the title that I want.
Oh, there it is, The Dark Box Text. It just came right up. I just drag it. Look, I'm just dragging it right here. I found the title I want to use. And I just dragged it in. That's how easy it is. And I'm going to click on it to highlight it because I want to manipulate it. And I have to go back to the Inspector.
Remember, Inspector here allows you to change parameters in any clip on the timeline. So here, now this is-- what does this say here? SAMPLE TEXT. And this is the sample text, so I'm going to delete that.
I'm going to copy in my sentence. Cleanse the skin with aloe vera wipes. And it's a little bit big. So I'm going to go to the size here. You see where is the size. Make that a little bit smaller.
And now I want to bring it down. So I'm going to go to Settings. And you can see the position. So again, whenever you are not sure about something, click on it. You're not going to break anything. You're not going to mess anything up. Don't worry.
Once you make changes, you undo to go back to the previous state. So Position, let me see what is that. Yeah, I want to move the position. I want to move this title from the middle of the screen down position. Oh, that's left and right. So I'm just going to stop that.
I want to undo. Or I could just highlight this and type 0. 0 will take me back. All right. So X, I just learned, was left and right. What about Y. Y is up and down. That's good. That's what I need. I'm going to go down. So I'm going to drag the Y parameter down. about there looks good, right?
And whenever you see a red line here, that means DaVinci Resolve needs to make that file. It needs to make this title with that sentence, Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes.
And you can see that red line has turned blue, which means that it's done. OK, that's called rendering. It had to render that title. So now if I play it, there it is.
It seemed a little short. And we have ESL students. I would like that title to linger, linger a lot longer. So what I'm just going to do is I'm going to grab the end of that title and just drag it out. See, I'm just going to drag it out, make it longer.
As you can see, that red line came back because DaVinci Resolve has to render that title again, which means that it has to create that file. And you can see it turning blue.
Speaker 3: Paul, can I ask you a question?
Paul Yung: Sure.
Speaker 3: Can you move the title in the preview window by clicking on it to activate it and then using your arrow keys up, down, left, right.
Paul Yung: Well, let's try it. Hold on. Linda, good question. It doesn't appear that you can't because that you're left, right arrows are mapped to this timeline.
For example, if I-- you see the time head here, if I hit my left arrow, this moves one frame to the left. Can you see that?
Speaker 3: So arrow keys are the shortcut for the cursor moving back and forth?
Paul Yung: Right. Right. OK. So if I move my left arrow, it moves one frame to the left. If I move it to the right, it moves one frame to the right. If I clicked the down arrow, it jumps to the next edit.
Watch. I'm going to down arrow, next edit. Down arrow, next edit. Up arrow goes back one edit. So that's what the arrows keys do, but you can type in a number here. You can type in a position number or you can hover over it and just drag. You see that?
Speaker 3: OK, thank you. Got it.
Paul Yung: As you can see, when you hover over it, you can see that the double arrows-- is that visible? OK, that's good. That's good. So here it is. DaVinci Resolve is writing, is rendering, this title is turning blue.
And notice how easy it was to make it longer, make it stay on screen longer for your ESL students. Just pull the tail. Cleanse the skin with aloe vera wipes.
And it stays there. Your ESL students have time to read it. Hey, that looks pretty good. Look, we made our edits. We added a title. What else do we need visually? Does the video ever start like that? No. You need a transition.
Usually it's-- what is it? It's fade up from black. Look, if I hover my cursor on the upper left corner of the screen, you can see there's a little white dot there. I'm going to drag that out. And that creates a transition. That's create a-- or I'm just going to undo. I'm going to undo. And now I'm back to my state.
So that's one way, just pulling this little red, white square, or I can go to my effect's library. And I go to video transmissions, or maybe not that one. [laughs]
My video transmissions disappeared. Oh, you know why, because I still have this dark box text here. Let me delete that. There it is. OK. So it was stuck on dark box text. So once I cleared my search box-- look at all these effects you have available to you.
So if I just hover over it with my cursor and go left and right, you can see I get a little preview. This is the drop warp. Look what happens. That's funky, right, like a filmstrip.
Hey, that's cool. Look at that. So I get little previews. I don't have to do anything. I'm just moving my cursor over each effect. Now if I want to try it, I'm going to drag film clip over here from strip, drop it there. And then let me play it.
That was cool, but it's a little too dramatic for my students. Cross dissolve is the classic. Cross dissolve. That's nice and simple. And look, the cross dissolved is about one second. If you hover over it, you can see it here. You can make it dissolve longer or shorter just by pulling left or right.
All right. So just a recap. Again, we don't need the effects, titles. I'm just going to close this so that we have-- and I'm going to close Inspector. And now I have my project here. Look.
So we've added our clips. We've added a title. And we've added a transition.
Now what do we need? We need the voice-over narration. So we're on the Edit page. I'm going to go to the Fairlight page. Look at the bottom. I'm going to go to the Fairlight page. You can see the clips here, my video.
And I'm going to-- this is going to be a lot for you to remember. So again, right now, I'm just going to show you how I've put together this project. You're not supposed to remember all of this. It's a little technical I understand, but I want to record narration. So I'm going to add another track, a soundtrack.
I'm going to choose mono. I'm going to double click on this. I'm going to call it Narration. So I'm going to call it Narration. And I have to assign the audio coming in to go to this track. So the audio coming in my mic is going to come in line 1.
And I wanted to go here, Narration, right, that's what I named. That's what I named this. I'm going to click Patch. And I'm going to close this.
And in order to record, I have to click this R. R for record, you can see that. That means ready. R means ready. And then you could hear I'm getting feedback right now because I'm speaking to the mic and it's coming back from my computer system.
But here I can adjust. I can adjust my microphone level. And when I'm ready, I'm just going to click this circular dot here. I'm going to turn off my computer while I record.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. So let's listen to that. Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. Maybe I'm not happy with that delivery. I'll try another one.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. I'll try one more. Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. Turn that off. So I did three different versions. And if I open it up, they're all here.
Let me change their color so that we could identify them better. This one this-- Remember, this is something that you could always do to better identify your clips, change their colors. So listen. Let me listen to each one.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. So it's always going to play the one on top. If I want to audition this one, I'm just going to switch it to the top, bring it up to the top. Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. That one sounded a little pretentious, so I'm not going to use that one.
Let me try the pink one. Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. I think my favorite was the blue one. Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. [laughs] OK, as you can see, that was the best I could do. I'm not an actor or something. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to turn down the volume of these two by dragging this line.
You can see the audio waveforms just disappear as I put it down. So now all I have is this. Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. So now I'm going to go back. I'm going to go back to the Edit page. Let me direct your attention to the bottom of the page.
By clicking Edit, I'm back here. And look, my audio track is here. I'm going to delete this one. And I want to delete this one. And let's hear it in the context of the video and the title.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. So the voice came in a way before the title. The title is here. And what I can do is I can drag this over, see, to time it better. If you remember, my title need to animate up, to animate up, and here they go.
And the first time we see the word is [inaudible]. Let's try that. Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes. And the title stay on screen for my ESL students. Maybe I'll even make them a little bit longer, because you know how ESL students are. They need time to read.
All right. So all right, what about some music. This piece could use a little music. So remember the Media page, this is what we brought in, our media, our videos. All of my hard drives are here, but there's an even easier way, believe it or not.
So I'm working in the Edit page. I'll open my media pool. And I could just drag stuff right into here. So I'm going to find my hard drive. I'm going to go to-- wait, music. And I like this song here. Stepping something to the top.
So in order to bring this file into my DaVinci Resolve project, I'm just going to drag it in. I click on it. I'm going to drop it right into the media pool. And now the song is here.
Guess what, I forgot to show you this. You can resize things. So I can make the windows smaller to have more real estate down here to work with. So I have my song. In order to use the song, I'm just going to drag it in.
And there it is. You can see the sound waves. And just as with the transition here, you can see there's a little tab here. I'm going to pull this over. The sound is going to come in nice and gently now.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes.
OK. So I have some music. I have my titles. I have the video. But I couldn't hear my voice because the music was too loud. So this is where the next phase is. It's called sound mixing.
Sound mixing is when you balance all the audio elements that you have. In a feature film, what does that mean? There's dialogue. There is music. There is sound effects. Sound effects could be street ambience, birds, cars passing by. And the sound mixer whose job is to balance all those elements so that you can hear them all. And they contribute to the feeling and atmosphere of the scene. But you can still hear the dialogue.
You see this white line here that runs from left to right on top of the sound clip. I'm just going to drag that down to reduce the volume. And let's see how that sound.
Cleanse the face--
Still a little too loud. Maybe go a little bit softer. OK.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes.
So that worked. The song is very long. I'm just going to make it shorter. And so far, this is what we have.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes.
OK, so quickly-- need to move a little bit quicker now. We have our edit. We have our title. We have our narration and music. And we balanced them out.
Now I'm going to go to the Color page. Color page is here. And remember, this is what DaVinci Resolve is famous for. At least 60% of everything you see on TV and in the movie theaters are color graded and corrected by DaVinci Resolve. So what does that mean?
So first you're going to color balance. Simply to do that, let me direct your eye to this corner here. You see that eyedropper. You see the eyedropper. You choose this and you click on something that you want to be standard white. Anywhere here that you want to be white.
I want this board to be white. As soon as I click, you see how it neutralize the colors. I don't know if that comes through on Zoom, but I'm going to undo. This was the state of the video.
I'm going to grab my eyedropper tool and just click here. And now it's neutralized. And for me, that looks a lot more natural. And I want to boost just like a-- wait. Let's go back to the page. Color.
So essentially we did this. There was a little yellow cast, and we made it neutral. And now we're going to do a color boost. We're going to do a color boost.
The color boost feature is on the lower left corner. Do you see it here? And I'm just going to raise it a little bit. Listen, if you're ever not sure of what to do, go all the way so that you can see clearly what that feature does and then you can pull back.
Don't go up incrementally and try to figure out what it does. Oh my god. Oh, that's what it does. So I'm now going to pull back. I want to pull back. Look, you could have this kind of look or something warmer like that.
Actually I'm going to undo that.
OK. So I want to reset that. I want to double click on color boost to reset that. So when I double click, these numbers turn to 0. That means reset.
These things here are called nodes. I want to create a new node. And I want to put the color boost here. Oh, that looks nice. Look at her face. That looks nice, nice skin color on her face. I'm going to turn off this color node. And you can see how nice her face looks now.
It might be a little strong. I could pull it back a little bit. Now I'm going to add another node. Right now I'm just showing you-- this is a little bit advanced, but I'm just going to show you what DaVinci Resolve is famous for.
Because this is about makeup, she's got to have beautiful skin. So let's work on her skin. We balance the frame with white. We add a little color boost. Now I want to select her skin by choosing this eyedropper.
And right now you can see, I just selected her skin. And whatever I do now is only going to affect her skin, nothing else. For example, if you want to test, I'm just going to drag this color wheel to blue. You can see it's just going to affect her face because I've selected only her face and mask everything else out.
I'm going to undo that. Instead of adding color, I'm going to go to my effects by opening here. Open Effects. I'm going to type in something called beauty. And it's right here. Beauty.
And I'm going to crank up the amount. Can you see how her skin has smoothened out? Her skin-- if you ever wonder why those movie stars and singers on music videos and movies have such wonderful skin, this is one reason why. Look, I have these three nodes here.
And do I have to do the same thing for these two? That's a lot of work, right? No. So I'm just going to copy them over. I'm going to highlight this. I'm going to highlight this. And I'm going to click my middle mouse button. And look what happened. Look what happens.
Now those three nodes are over here now. And if I want to take a look at this mask, look, it has adjusted itself for these two shots. And if I look at these two shots, look how nice her skin looks.
Look, her skin is practically glowing. So if I go back to the Edit page by clicking on the bottom here, this is what we have so far.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes.
what I would do now that's just the first step right I would go through and continue in the same manner with each step of that lesson. And just as with the color enhancements, you can copy the effects over. Learning those tips will help you work more quickly and smoothly.
Here, one thing is I'm going to need to make another title. So if I hold option on my Mac-- I don't know what the equivalent is on the PC, but it is a similar function.
Speaker 3: Paul, it's called Alt.
Paul Yung: OK. Thank you, Linda. Thank you for coming today. [laughs] So hold option on the Mac or Alt on the PC, and just hold it down and just drag it.
Look, you're automatically making another copy. And then now I could just go into the Inspector and write in my new-- and copy. I don't even like to type. I'm just going to copy here. Protect the face with vitamin cleanser.
So those little tips-- I'm going to delete this. Those tips will help you work a lot faster. I didn't spend any time typing because I had my list up right. I just copied and pasted the text in.
So right now we have to output this. So we've made our video. I'm going to go to this Deliver page. Look at the bottom of the screen. Deliver is where you're going to output your video.
I'm going to call it a name. I'm going to say Aloe Vera. I want to browse to the location that I want to save it in. I'm going to browse. I'm going to save it to my desktop. Save and add to Render Queue. So it's here.
One thing I forgot to tell you that's really, really cool. I'm going to go back to the Edit page, go to File, and Quick Export. If I choose Quick Export, look, I could set up my YouTube account. I could set up my YouTube account, and it will make the video and upload it directly to my YouTube account. My Vimeo account, my Twitter account.
I could set up, sign in, and set it up whereas it'll write the video and upload it to all of these accounts at the same time. Isn't that amazing? So again, I want to cancel out. I'm going to deliver-- Remember, I am at the Deliver page, right?
Everything looks good. I clicked Add to Render Queue. The queue is the line of all your projects. Remember rendering means writing the project. I'm going to click Render All. Once I click Render All, it's going to make the video.
So you can see that green line, the progress bar advancing to the right. So far, my Mac has been working out OK. And it's the old one. It's eight-years-old. Done.
Look at this. The video is here. Here it comes.
Cleanse the face with aloe vera wipes.
OK. So that is a little sample of what DaVinci Resolve can do. Right now, I'm just going to show you the completed video that I actually made from my class.
[video clip playing]
Speaker 5: Apply eye--
Paul Yung: So this was the actual video that I made using all of the clips and going through all the steps in the video. The lesson that my students did, it took them 40 minutes to do the whole make-up process. The final video is four minutes.
In the professional world, they call that a 40 to 1 shooting ratio. Imagine a two-hour movie, they will shoot thousands of minute. I mean hundreds of hours of footage to make a two-minute to two-hour video.
I'm going to let you watch that video that we made. It's right here.
Speaker 6: Paul, we don't see the video.
Paul Yung: Oh--
Speaker 5: Cleanse the skin with aloe vera wipes.
Paul Yung: Wait.
Speaker 5: Protect the face with--
Paul Yung: I chose share screen, and-- It's here. OK, I got it, it got it. I got it. Here it is.
[video clip playing]
Speaker 5: Cleanse the skin with aloe vera wipes.
Protect the face with vitamin cleanser.
Cover blemishes with color corrector.
Accentuate facial features of color contour.
Brush eyebrows with powder and gel.
Curl the eyelashes.
Apply eyeshadow and blend.
Brush the eyelashes with mascara.
Apply lip liner.
Apply blush to the cheeks.
Paul Yung: OK. So now you have a video that you can use for your class. You can use to-- You can use to promote your class. You can use it in your class. You could put it on the internet.
And also that's not the end of it. You can take out little clips and put it in your school's learning management system. At LAUSD, we use Schoology for a variety of exercises.
Let me show you real quick. So I broken up the clips. Here's something called Make Up Steps that I made with the video. Can everyone see my screen?
So the video is here. I just took a part out of the video. I don't want to play the whole video. Just about a minute. And there's no sound. But the students are supposed to watch this video and put the steps that they see in the correct order.
You see how you can drag these steps. So it's an ordering sequencing exercise. So I just took a portion of the video. And the cool thing is, look, the video can keep on playing while you move these steps into the order.
So I'm going to quit out of this. And here's another exercise that I've made. I took little clips from that video along with the sound and created a matching exercise.
So here are our video clips. They are just a few seconds long. And I have four audio clips at the bottom. Oh, no. [laughs]
OK. OK. This is embarrassing. [laughs] OK. You know what? What's supposed to happen is that there are those audio clips. And the student drags the clip next to the video to match what they see.
That's just irritating. [laughs] Technology, right? I rehearsed that about five times. And it worked fine until the time came to demonstrate. Doesn't that always happen?
Speaker 6: Hey, Paul. I'm sorry. So here's the chance to redeem yourself. So is Schoology-- what's the-- Cora is asking, what's the name of the exercise maker? Does that does that activity have a name, that matching activity that we just saw?
Paul Yung: Yeah. Let me show you. The first thing, you create a lesson. And then you choose matching here. You choose matching. And then you can import text, audio, video, pictures. Hey, look, it's just slow. So you would put something here on the right, like I click here.
Video player, upload video, and I put my YouTube link here. So I put all the video on this site. And I put the audio-- I'll click here. And I upload audio. And then I would upload the MP3 here.
And then on the bottom, you would set up the answers. So that is really, really irritating. [laughs] I can't believe this. I did it like five times. Really, is that for real? This is an outrage.
So listen, what's next? Let me just share my screen again. Can you guys see my PowerPoint?
Speaker 6: Yes, Paul.
Paul Yung: Yes. What kind of videos can you make for your class? You can make a graduation video. You can make a video of your students talking about their goals. You can make a video of your students talking about their challenges.
You can have your students send you video clips that you put together and put on your learning management system. It's up to you. The possibilities are endless.
So what's next? I'm going to put what I call the Quick Start guide into the chat. So go to Blackmagic Design. Download and install DaVinci Resolve. Real easy.
Follow this Quick Start guide that I'm going to put in to chat for in a minute. Look at the training resources. Start learning with the open mind. Be fearless.
Remember, try things. You're not going to break anything. You can always undo. And practice. And if you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I'll be happy to hear from you.
Whether you're doing good or maybe you might be a little frustrated, reach out to me. Say, Paul, I don't get it. OK. And tell me why. And I'll do my best to help.
So right now, open your chat window. And I'm going to put that document, the Quick Start guide into the chat window so that you can download it. All right.
And one thing I wanted to show you about this-- So look, some of these links are highlighted, some aren't, but they all work. If I click on Blackmagic Design, it takes me not even to that front page but right to the download page. Here we go.
Download right here. We did not go to the home page. So these links work. So these are short, easy tutorials to get started. These are links to those same videos that I showed you on the Blackmagic Design website, but to the YouTube account instead.
And this is really cool. Let me explain why. I'm going to click on this YouTube link. It's going to take me to those same videos, but instead of coming from the Blackmagic Design's website, they're on YouTube. And why is this cool? Look.
[video clip playing]
Paul Yung: Hi, I'm Paul.
I want to show more. Here I can download the video files to follow along with the video, just like the website, but it breaks down what you're going to learn and what part of the video. So if you say, hey, I just want to figure out how to add a transition, I'm just going to click here. And it's going to go right--
[video clip playing]
Paul Yung: I'm going to go out.
It's going to go to that moment. So that's a really cool feature. All right. So it is 4:29. I guess I could tell the bosses at [laughs] OTAN that-- Anthony, tell them. Paul, finish on time. so
I'll mute right now. And Anthony was kind enough to say that he wouldn't mind staying for a few more minutes because-- but right now it's the therapy session. I hope you guys are feeling OK. Everybody take a deep breath. I know I'm going to have a happy hour drink after this.
That was a lot, right? Let's be honest. Was that a lot? Gloria, was that a lot? How do you feel?
Speaker 7: I think it's doable. I just probably need to go step by step on that.
Paul Yung: Right. Gloria, it is doable because if you really paid attention to what I actually did, I just clicked and dragged things. Right?
Speaker 7: Yeah.
Paul Yung: I clicked and dragged. Just that they do is no computer coding, nothing that was-- When I flipped that video, remember, I used my middle school math at 180 degrees, right? Yeah, that worked. Right?
And I grabbed transitions from the window and just dragged them right on top of my clip. I dragged the titles out. I copied. I didn't even do any typing. I copied and pasted from my Word document right into DaVinci Resolve.
Remember, it's like a Microsoft Word. I'm just going to choose my favorite font. I'm going to choose the size. I'm going to start typing. I want to choose middle align, left align, or right, and I'm done. You just use what you need.
And if you want to get fancy, if you want to go Hollywood, if you want to do the really, really cool stuff, it's all possible. Remember, what do they say, the journey of 1,000 miles begins with the first step.
Just keep that philosophy in mind. Remember our grade school fairy tale, The Tortoise And The Hare, right? Keep all these fundamentals in mind as you take your first step. And good luck.
Remember, this is a part of the amazing time that we live in that sometimes we forget about. Remember when we were growing up, there were only like four TV stations. ABC, NBC, CBS, and then your local station. Now you can make something and put it on YouTube, and it could be viewed all over the world.
So now this software, sophisticated application that is being used at those fancy Hollywood studios that charge $500 an hour is available to you. This is the amazing time that we live in. And it's up to you, whether you want to learn it or not.
You know what I'm saying? These tools are available to you. And if you choose to buy the Studio version, which you don't really need, the only thing that advantage you would have for you is that there are some more special effects, like that beauty effect I used. That's not going to be in the free version.
The 3D stuff, you don't need any of that. So these same tools that they're using to grade the Avengers, those big budget movies, you can use. I'm using to make my cosmetology video. You can use it to put together your student interviews.
Anthony and I are here for three more minutes for questions. Any questions?
Speaker 4: Paul, I have a question. So I know LAUSD is really, really careful about video release, student signatures. So what is the first-- are they signing some sort of permission granted for you first?
Paul Yung: Yes, yes. In our school division, we have a standard document.
Speaker 4: Yeah.
Paul Yung: And students, we're happy to do it. There's never a problem.
Speaker 4: OK, and then you're taking your personal cell phone and you're putting it onto your Mac. Is your Mac a school computer or is it a personal computer?
Paul Yung: Yeah, it's my own. It's my own computer.
Speaker 4: OK. OK. Because I downloaded DaVinci the other day when I got the OTAN email, and it's all on the school computer that I have. So I just want to make sure that I'm not-- I have to keep everything. I don't want to put my personal cell phone onto my school computer. [laughs]
Paul Yung: OK. Yeah, I get it. I get it.
Speaker 4: So for recording, how would you recommend I would do that then?
Paul Yung: So you want to be very strict and keep your professional and private things separate. So you're going to have to ask the school for a camera.
Speaker 4: Aha.
Paul Yung: Right?
Speaker 4: OK. With the Screencastify, I can record directly from that program. So there's no way you can record videos from this?
Paul Yung: No. You can record with your screencast and bring that video file--
Speaker 4: There you go. There you go. Excellent. There it is. That's what I needed. I need to brainstorm.
Paul Yung: Usually those cameras are not that good.
Speaker 4: Yeah, yeah. I get it.
Paul Yung: Get your administrator to buy a video camera for your school. OK, for your faculty, for the team. And for like $1,500, you can get a great camcorder these days. I mean just superb. OK.
