    I see a lot of people here are choosing to edit their prores footage via Resolve. Personally, I really enjoy shooting RAW and having the room to edit more freely. I was searching online and it seems like a lot of people who shoot RAW are also using Adobe Lightroom to batch edit their DNGs, save settings, and then export. I think this is an ingenious way of editing since I am extremely familiar with Lightroom.

    Anyone on here have a Lightroom workflow that they care to share? I haven't personally tried it myself but it seems pretty straight forward.

    I have a coworker who did all of his calendaring in Photoshop because he was familiar with it and didn't want to take the time to learn iCal or Outlook. I wouldn't exactly call his "workflow" "ingenious".

    This guy (not a friend or coworker), does his grading in Lightroom. Some beautiful stuff:

    You might want to reach out to him for his workflow.

    I just believe in using the right tool for the right job. You can work with RAW footage directly in Resolve. It doesn't have to be prores. And when you say, "edit more freely," I assume you mean "color more familiarly," because Lightroom isn't an NLE. I'm just saying you'd be leaving a lot on the table by ignoring a purpose-built tool *just because* you'd miss your vibrance slider.

    FWIW
    I read somewhere that the vibrance effect was achieved by boosting the saturation where it's less saturated, then excluding skin tones from the process so they don't get too wonky.
    Seems like it would be a simple thing to do in Resolve with a couple parallel nodes. just use the sat versus sat curve and do a skin tone node in parallel.
    Think I tried that once and it worked pretty good.

    Out of curiosity, why not color your Raw footage in resolve and have it set to export individual clips at the end? Personally it's been the quickest workflow for me when shooting raw but handing off to another editor.
