    Has anyone used the free DCP in Resolve 15? Can you please share your experience? I cannot find any info on how to create a DCP package for theatrical screening for the FREE version, just the paid EasyDCP one. It will be great to hear from someone who went through his exercise.

    i have made one, it was a test and the audio mapping was a trainwreck, otherwise it worked fine

    far prefer DCP-0-Matic, made dozens of DCP's with it, never a problem ever, and it's free

    Confirmed. +1 for DCP-O-Matic.

    Cam't remember who recommended to me, and I've only made a couple, but it worked AND PLAYED just fine.

    Toss 'em $5 at least.

    Gents, thanks for the recommendation. I will check it out and toss them some $$.
    It would be nice if they fixed that DCP Audio mapping issue Dermot had with it.

    Got DCP-o-matic to install and dry run with a short clip. What format and codec from Resolve for your master do you folks use to create a DCP package?

    I'm not sure if a DCP software player will give me a true sense the the files will work on a true DCP projector. If it does, I'll test it with the software and a DLP projector. I've arranged a tech run with the cinema next month so that's good. The DCP-o-matic works like a charm on the mac. I still hope that the Free DCP in Resolve 15.x will do as well.

    Get a hold of Zak Forseman - he offers this as a service. Now, he might be be busy nowadays shooting features, but he might know of another provider for this service.
