Run Davinci Resolve Light on small screen resolution

As you may know, Davinci Resolve light is out for mac. It is a free version of Davinci Resolve 8 with a few limitation.

 

From the website :

DaVinci Resolve Lite – Free

The free DaVinci Resolve Lite includes the same high quality processing as the full DaVinci Resolve, however it limits projects to SD and HD resolutions, two color correction nodes, a single processing GPU and a single RED rocket card. Stereoscopic 3D features, 2K, noise reduction, power mastering, remote grading and sharing projects with an external database server are features only offered in the full DaVinci Resolve and are not included in this free DaVinci Resolve Lite edition. Download Now!

 

Only issue though the interface is only optimized to work with a resolution of 1920×1080. So if you are playing with it on you MacBook Pro, you might not be able to see the whole thing. So here is a small workaround you can do

 

  1. Close Resolve
  2. Open Terminal
  3. type : defaults write -g AppleDisplayScaleFactor 0.80
  4. Start Resolve
  5. Tada…  😆
When you are finish to play with Resolve jus type the same thing in terminal but set the value to 1.0 instead of 0.80.
NB: you can set any value you want instead of 0.80

“In this article by Reynante Martinez we’ll tackle a topic that is commonly misunderstood and often overlooked inside of Blender. But before we begin, I’d like to make a few remarks. First, I do not claim to be a professional color grading artist nor do I imply the following explanations as “rules” to be strictly followed. What I will try to share with you in this article are my thoughts and experiences on Color Grading using Blender.
