I grade in DaVinci Therefore, as it stands:
- I can't use bins
- I can't use multicam sequences
- I can't use nested sequences.
At least I know this (and am not finding out out an hour before the deadline, as a nasty surprise)
In other words, I have to pretend to use a crippled NLE if I want to export my timeline to other software.
How hard, really, would it be to make XML export work like the playhead - that is, it makes a playlist that is just a series of cuts as represented/generated by the use of the above tools? I just want XML to behave like the playhead!
I don't need the nested sequences to stay nested, or the bins to stay bins - who would ever care about that? I just want to be able to grade an external edit in useable way without removing my ability to use bins, nested sequences or multicam.
Speaking of bins, how about "revert to original" as a right-click feature? As it is now, if you make your bin clip too short, lengthening it is a totally silly, convoluted process, unless I am missing something.
PLEASE we need this way before we need some fancy new gee-wiz features.
