If you've ever had to create a load of end cards or lower 3rds for an edit, then you'll appreciate any tool which can make that process easier and more automatic.

I've finally written a program in Python - and it even works, for the most part so I'm quite pleased with m...

I was trying to make a tool which would make a rectangle behind a text element and automatically scale the rectangle as you add more characters in the text.

As of Resolve 16.2 you can now put appropriate .setting files into the Generators directory and these will then be available for use in the Edit Page. I've made a Macro in Fusion which can be used in this way for a custom Safe Area guide. Obviously using this kind of S...

Bouncing with an attempt at decay, driven by four numbers in a Custom Tool (put this in the 'Centre X Y of a Transform for example)

Point((time*CustomTool1.NumberIn3), abs(sin(time*CustomTool1.NumberIn1)*(CustomTool1.NumberIn2/(CustomTool1.NumberIn4*time))) +CustomTool1...
