I have a movie imported into my project. The movie consists of several aikido techniques. I want to slice the movie with blade into several segments, each contains only one aikido technique.

Having cut the video, I want to save each segment into a separate file. How to accomplish this easily?

Go to the deliver tab and on the left click on the file menu. Above it yopu should see the checkboxes labelled Render [ ] single clip [✓] Individual clips. check the individual clips box, and then check the Use Unique Filenames box. This will output every clip in your sequence as a separate file, with a numeric suffix, eg output_0001.mov, output_0002.mov…

enter image description here

You can either use a custom name or base the name on the original source clip. (This is how you export files from a grade, so that they link to the original footage file.)


Using the built-in exporter with individual clips export doesn't give you processed audio or different layers rendered together. It just renders the source clips trimmed the way you put them in your timeline.

I had this problem and ended up making MediaChopper. It is a small utility program that lets you split the video files based on almost any data.

First, you render the whole video file as usual. Then you export the Edit Index from DaVinci Resolve.

Take these two things, put them in MediaChopper and select which segments you want.

Full disclosure: I made MediaChopper and would love to hear if it's useful for anyone.
