Some people do not want to show their faces on camera, and others do not have the right equipment to do it. And also for Music videos Sometimes you need an audio spectrum to visualize your music video.
Basically, there is a technique called audio spectrum that shows a visual representation of audio.
In addition to keeping everyone’s attention, it’s attractive to look at someone who can watch it for hours.
This tutorial aims to teach you how to make audio visualizations with Davinci Resolve easily. There is a lot to learn here whether you’re new to Davinci Resolve or an expert. So let’s get started.
In DaVinci resolve, we can not just show audio spectrum, so first of all, we need to download a DaVinci resolve plugin called Reactor.
So first, search Davinci resolve reactor plugin on google and click on this website.
Now click on here that is below the installing Reactor visually.
Now we need to install the reactor plugin in DaVinci resolve, so open DaVinci resolve and create a new project.
Now go to the fusion page.
Now select the reactor plugin file named reactor-installer.Lua and drag&drop this file in the fusion page of DaVinci resolve.
Now the install reactor window will appear. Just click the install and launch button.
Now once you click the install and launch button, it will start installing and initializing the plugin.
Don’t worry. It will take several minutes, so be calm and patient.
After initializing a fusion reactor window will appear, scroll down and check the audio waveform, and it will automatically install the selective file.
Now cross the fusion reactor installer, and Now a window appears after installation that says the plugin is installed.
Now restart the Davinci resolve.
Now create a project and go to the edit page and now enable effect library by selecting it and goto effects from the toolbox and drag&drop fusion composition in the edit page timeline.
Now go to the fusion page and select the effects library and search for the audio waveform.
Now drag&drop the audio waveform effect in the fusion node timeline.
Now select the audio waveform node and click on the browse button
and select an audio file.
Now connect the audio waveform node to the media out node by clicking and dragging the endpoint of the audio waveform node to the media out node to display the audio waveform.
Now if you want to take this to the next level then just follow me.
first, select the audio waveform node and select the control and we need to change a few settings here.
Just change the proxy(for sampling) to ‘6’.
Now we need to change the audio spectrum color so we need a background node for that.
Search background node in effects library searches or use the keyboard shortcut ‘shift+spacebar’ and drag&drop this background node in fusion page timeline.
Now disconnect the audio waveform node from the media out node by clicking at the end of the node connector arrow.
Now connect the background node to the media out node and connect the audio waveform node to the background node it will look like this once you connect these nodes.
Now select the background node and go to its setting and click on the color picker to change the color.
For this tutorial, I’m changing my color to this ‘#4affd8‘ just copy this value and paste it in the HTML in the color picker, and click OK.
And now we need to make spectrum shine a little bit so search for glow in effects library and drag&drop glow effect node in fusion node timeline in between background node and media out node.
Now select the glow node and go to its setting and change the glow size to ‘59.1‘ and change the glow to ‘0.787‘ and at last change the blend to ‘0.409‘.
Now go to the edit page and import the same audio file that we use on the fusion page.
If you select the wrong audio file then your audio spectrum will not sync.
Now import a background and place it below the fusion composition layer.
You can do that by dragging the fusion composition to the top and drag&drop the background below the fusion composition.
Finally, go to the deliver page and select a render setting and change the file name and change its location from the browse button and click on add to render queue, and then click on render all and it will render your video.
This is how you can make an audio spectrum in DaVinci resolve. You can now create stunning audio visualizations in Davinci resolve by following this tutorial.
