Blackmagic Design: DaVinci Resolve 11 shown12 September 2014
DaVinci Resolve 11, the latest version of Blackmagic Design’s popular colour grading system, is being demonstrated.
With more than 100 new editing and colour grading features, the update includes online editing plus context sensitive trimming, on-set file cloning, and a collaborative workflow that allows multiple users to work simultaneously on the same timeline.
“Since we added the new editing tools into DaVinci Resolve we have had some great feedback from editors working on high end feature film and television programming jobs. We have rolled this great advice into DaVinci Resolve. Of course we continue to add wonderful colour correction and on-set tools into this release as well,” said Grant Petty, CEO of Blackmagic.
New to version 11 is dual monitor support, audio crossfades and customisable keyboard shortcuts. It also features a new spline curve keyframe editor integrated into the edit timeline that positions keyframes directly under each clip and in context with the clip.
For colour correction, the software update includes RAW image and colour grading controls that are designed for photographers who are moving into cinematography.
Resolve 11 is also designed to improve round trip collaboration with Apple Final Cut Pro X, and offers OpenCL image processing for improved rendering speeds on the new Apple MacPro systems.
