Blackmagic announces new DaVinci release20 January 2014
DaVinci Resolve 10.1 software from Blackmagic Design is now available. The release adds new editing and 3D stereoscopic features as well as support for Final Cut Pro X 10.1. DaVinci Resolve 10.1 is available for download free of charge for all existing DaVinci Resolve customers from the Blackmagic Design website.
The new DaVinci Resolve 10.1 update allows users to preview and align multiple camera takes while editing, so they can quickly switch between takes to show their clients shot options live from the timeline. Editors can also now drag and drop individual clips in the editing timeline. Improved editing tools also include support for trimming frame based clips such as DNG and DPX that aims to reduce time in transferring clips, as well as Rich Text title support which allows character size, position and colour to be adjusted individually directly from the Edit page.
The software includes XML import enhancements for both FCP X 10.1 and FCP 7 customers. Compound clips from FCP X 10.1 with separate A/V elements are now split into individual clips and imported FCP 7 XMLs include font properties and timeline markers as well as being able to bring across sizing, cropping and composition parameters.
Customers with the full software license of DaVinci Resolve will get enhanced 3D stereoscopic tools including a full stereoscopic multi track editing timeline, enhanced convergence adjustments and automatic alignment.
“Resolve 10 has been a massive update with over 50 new features including temporal processing, Open FX Plug-ins and powerful onset tools,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “The additional editing tools we are releasing today give customers more precise control over their projects from within the DaVinci Resolve timeline and improves integration with popular editing and visual effects software so that customers get the best workflow possible.”
