No longer will Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 12 be just a color grading suite. With DaVinci Resolve 12, the veteran color grader will become a full blown non-linear editor.
DaVinci Resolve 12 combines professional non-linear video editing with the world’s most advanced color corrector so now you can edit, color correct, finish and deliver all from one system! DaVinci Resolve is completely scalable and resolution independent so it can be used on set, in a small studio or integrated into the largest Hollywood production pipeline! From creative editing and multi camera television production to high end finishing and color correction, only DaVinci Resolve features the creative tools, compatibility, speed and legendary image quality you need to manage your entire workflow, which is why it is the number one solution used on Hollywood feature films.
DaVinci Resolve 12 includes sophisticated professional editing tools designed to handle a wide range of projects from scripted prime time dramas to fast paced stylized commercials and even multi camera productions. Editing tools are context sensitive, which means that DaVinci Resolve automatically knows how you want to trim based on the position of the mouse so you don’t have to waste time switching tools! You also get customizable keyboard shortcuts so you can edit quickly and move between applications with ease. DaVinci Resolve 12 has the most advanced collaborative tools that let multiple people work together on the same timeline at the same time so you can finish faster and focus on your edit!
DaVinci color correctors have been the standard in post production since 1984. There are thousands of colorists worldwide who understand the performance, quality and workflow of DaVinci. DaVinci Resolve features unlimited grading with the creative tools colorists need and incredible multi GPU real time performance. That’s why DaVinci is the name behind more feature films, commercials, television productions, documentaries and music videos than any other grading system
When you have a client looking over your shoulder you need to work fast. The DaVinci Resolve control surface lets you adjust multiple parameters simultaneously, making grading faster. The control surface features dedicated buttons, knobs and perfectly weighted trackballs that give you the subtle control you need for creating the most amazing looks! You get 32 soft knobs with automatic LCD labels so you’ll never have to page through multiple menus to find common adjustments. Save and recall grades to memory, load gallery stills and more at the push of a button while you keep grading at full speed!
DaVinci Resolve 12 will be available as a free upgrade for existing users in July 2015, and at an undisclosed price for new users, presumably somewhere around the current $995 price. As always, a Lite version will be available for download from Blackmagic as well.
