Blackmagic Ultrastudio is the primarily method we use for monitoring true video images from Resolve, but one vital element still hasn’t gotten an update.
If you want to accurately monitor your video image while you edit or color grade, you need a hardware converter that outputs a true video signal from your computer to hook up to a monitor. You simply cannot accurate analyze video for color on a computer desktop. While many companies make video output products, if you are working with Blackmagic Resolve software, you need to use Blackmagic Hardware to get that video signal out. It’s one of the ways they make a living, since the software many use for color grading (Resolve) is of course available for free.
