800K+ Views In The FIRST 3 WEEKS! How I Made This Instagram Reel With Davinci Resolve


I posted this video over on Instagram about three weeks ago and it’s already got 800,000 views. A lot of people in the comments wanted to know how I made it. Specifically, there are two different kinds of cool effects that I did in this video. The first one being the split screen of the four different clips and the second one being the before and after wipe that shows you the raw footage and then the final color grade. In this video, I’m going to show you how I did both of those things inside DaVinci Resolve, and the best part is that they’re both super easy. So secure the cup, let’s hop into DaVinci Resolve and I’ll show you how I did this.

Creating the Split Screen Effect

Alright, so we’re in DaVinci Resolve and what we’re looking at here is the finished product. Up on the top, I’ve got all my texts and below that, we’ve got our building up of our clips. The first thing that we’re gonna want to do is create that split screen effect.

Step 1: Adjust Cropping

One way that we can do this is by going into our inspector and playing with the cropping of the top and bottom to get it to what we want. We can then move it using the Y position.

Step 2: Setting Up Multiple Clips

For each clip, we need to set up the cropping based on the positioning we want. By clicking on ‘retain image position’, we can adjust the images within the crop to fit our desired layout.

Creating the Loading Color Grade Effect

Now, we’re going to create the loading color grade effect. This involves applying the color grading to each clip and using a wipe transition to show the transition from the raw footage to the color graded version.

Step 1: Apply Color Grading

By selecting all four clips and applying the color grading to each one, we can ensure that the final result will have a consistent look.

Step 2: Adding the Wipe Transition

Using the wipe transition, we can create a loading effect that transitions each clip from the raw footage to the color graded version. By adjusting the transition settings, we can customize the look and speed of the loading effect.


There it is, like I said, both of these effects are super easy to do. And as always I want to hear from you. Let me know down in the comments if this is something you would use on your own projects or maybe you would do it a different way.
