I'm not sure if this would be inappropriate to ask, but what software do you use when in the DI suite? Of course it doesn't really matter, but the workflows do change between software packages.

Anyone else can pitch in about their personal preferences.

Thanks!

I am working on Resolve at the moment but I do prefer Lustre.

Roger,
When your film is finished and signed off, how is the film mastered, assume copies are made for distribution but who holds the original. Assume you get copies too.

Hi Roger,

Could you say a little more about what you prefer in Lustre compared with Resolve? Are the results you get better and if so what is it that is better? Or is it more a question of a preferred workflow? Also what is the reason for working in resolve rather than your preferred Lustre? Thanks for your time

I'm editing, grading and mixing audio in Davinci Resolve. I like that I don't have to switch between programs and do it all in one project. 
The grading options are great and I like the results very much. 
I'm not familiar with Lustre. Would be interesting to know why Roger prefers is over Resolve.

Yeah Resolve is great for that. It would be even better if they could add more features to each of the pages. I feel like the program as a whole is a little too simplified. Each page doesn't have nearly as many options and features as some of the standalone programs.

I'm also interested in what makes Lustre the software of choice for Roger!

I prefer the way changes are made to color and density on the Resolve, also the way shaped windows are made and can be tracked. Little things that do not affect the final results but make more sense to my eye.

I'm slightly confused. I believe you said that you prefer Lustre in the above post, but you seem to favor Resolve in this one? Why is it that you prefer Lustre?

Thanks!
