Blackmagic has announced a new version of its editing platform DaVinci Resolve.
Version 17 boasts more than 300 new features and improvements including HDR grading tools, redesigned primary colour controls, next-gen Fairlight audio core and support for 2,000 real-time audio tracks. Blackmagic has also given the platform a redesigned inspector, new bin sorting, metadata clip views and other features designed to help customers finish projects faster. A public beta of DaVinci Resolve 17 is now available for download.
Blackmagic’s also displayed the Fairlight Desktop Console, a portable audio mixing control surface that features 12 touch sensitive flying faders, built-in LCDs above each channel strip for pan and effects control, and full automation control. Users can mix multiple tracks at once, control channel functions, record, monitor and navigate projects. It also has an HDMI interface for connecting to a monitor.
Then the Fairlight HDMI Monitor Interface enables the use of an HDMI or SDI TV or computer monitor with large Fairlight Studio Consoles. Featuring a new converter, users can use any display to get real-time Fairlight graphics for channel status and full audio level monitoring.
Meanwhile, EditShare announced its new Flow Panel for DaVinci Resolve Studio, which manages media assets and workflows across on-premise and Cloud-based tiered storage environments. The integrated Flow panel, which was developed with Flow’s open API, provides DaVinci Resolve users a media gateway to assets and associated metadata, said EditShare.
According to the company, the Flow Panel for DaVinci Resolve Studio lets editors, colourists, VFX artists and sound mixers move beyond their locally connected storage and search, browse, and access proxy and high resolutions versions of video and audio assets across multiple storage pools and archives. FLOW’s fast production tools can be used to quickly organise assets into folders and cuts-only sequences.
