View Full Version : Blending modes in Davinci Resolve?

04-07-2015, 10:52 AM
Forgive me if this is a stupid question as I'm still relatively new to Davinci resolve. But I have a 5min video that's been edited and I'm going to start grading in davinci. There are flares and burns tracks that have been created that I want to apply over my footage after it's been graded. So all I want to do is put these video's on top of the main and use a composite/blending mode like screen to overlay it. And I can't for the life of me seem to figure out how to do this in davinci. I used Davinci a while back, probably an older version and I remember doing this in the "EDIT" section but I don't see that option any more. I'm currently using davinci resolve 11 lite. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

you can import flares tracks as external mattes and attach them either to a single clip or the entire track.
Pages 130 and 690 of the manual will explain you how to do it.
Best luck

In the edit tab click on your clip (track2) and there is a little icon of a paintbrush and spanner (?) middle right.. when you click that the opacity and blend mode become available.

Took me an age to find!
