Blackmagic now shipping DaVinci Resolve8 November 2013
Blackmagic Design has announced the release of DaVinci Resolve 10, available for download free of charge for existing DaVinci Resolve customers. The latest upgrade includes on set tools, new editing features and support for OpenFX plug-ins.
DaVinci Resolve 10 allows timelines to be moved into and out of DaVinci Resolve and other edit software such as Final Cut Pro, Avid and Premiere Pro. Da Vinci Resolve Lite for Mac OS X and Windows is also available for download. This includes the addition of Ultra HD resolutions and additional GPU support.
Da Vince Resolve 10’s new Resolve Lite feature allows colour grading direct from the video input live. Grades can be stored and then relinked when the camera files are loaded. Enhanced editing features mean that multiple users can submit scenes from different applications, and DaVinci Resolve 10 can finish online from the original camera RAW files. Editing features also include full multi-track editing with 16 channels of audio per clip and unlimited video and audio tracks in the timeline.
Editing includes a title tool with static, lower third, scroll and crawl titles with multiple fonts, size, drop shadow and XY positioning. Timelines in DaVinci Resolve 10 also include the support of compound clips with elements including multiple video and audio tracks. Colour correction features have been upgraded, with support for industry standard OpenFX plug-ins with an unlimited number of plug-ins per clip.
“We’re extremely excited to be releasing DaVinci Resolve 10 today, which has been a massive update with the addition of new editing, temporal processing, OpenFX plug-ins and powerful onset tools,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “We have received incredibly positive feedback on this new release and some of the world’s leading post production facilities are now editing major work on DaVinci Resolve 10. With over 50 new features in DaVinci Resolve 10, this is the most exciting update in the entire 30-year history of DaVinci.”
