Quick Overview

A handy tool for DaVinci Resolve Studio users, particularly those working on storyboards, breakdowns, shot lists and VFX notes. It enables you to export marker data and stills to an Excel file, significantly streamlining your workflow and enhancing communication with vendors, clients, and artists.

Please note that ShotList Creator has been tested on:

  • macOS Ventura 13.2.1, Sonoma 14.1 with DaVinci Resolve Studio 18, 18.5, 18.6

  • Windows 10, 11 Pro with DaVinci Resolve Studio 18.1.4

  • Python 3.10.9



  1. Unzip the downloaded folder to your desired location. 
  2. Open DaVinci Resolve Studio and load your project.
  3. Navigate to keyboard customization and set a key for the next marker (Playback > Next Marker). This step is only required once.
  4. Ensure that the album with stills (in the color page) is empty. This is crucial for the script to function correctly.
  5. The script operates under the default DaVinci Resolve Studio timecode, which begins from 01:00:00:00.
  6. Run the script named ShotList_Creator. A dialog box will appear, prompting you to select an output folder. The script will then navigate through the timeline markers, grab thumbnails, and export the marker data (including frame, name, note, duration, color, and timecode) and stills to an Excel file in the selected folder.
  7. For macOS users, please verify if Terminal has been granted access in Privacy & Security > Accessibility.




- If you wish to provide annotations, create a paint node in the fusion page and make your annotations there. Please note that marker annotations and burn-in information will not be exported.

- Due to image resizing, the resulting file will be small and easily convertible to PDF, Google Sheets, or any other format that supports Excel.
