DaVinci Resolve launches on iPad

DaVinci Resolve for iPad supports H.264, H.265, ProRes and Blackmagic RAW media files

Blackmagic Design has created an iPad version of DaVinci Resolve which will be available in Q4.

The company will release both a free version and a full studio version.

Resolve has been optimized for MultiTouch technology and Apple Pencil and features support for cut and colour pages providing access to DaVinci’s image technology, colour finishing tools and latest HDR workflows.

Blackmagic said DaVinci Resolve delivers 4x faster Ultra HD ProRes render performance on the new iPad Pro with M2. HDR is also supported for customers using an 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the M1 chip.

Creators can send a clean feed grading monitor output to an Apple Studio Display, Pro Display XDR or an AirPlay compatible display, enabling them to use the external display to quickly create grades on set or colour correct clips in post production directly from their iPad.

  • Cut page for editing and the colour pages are optimized for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro display.
  • Up to 4x Ultra HD ProRes render performance improvement with the M2 chip.

“DaVinci Resolve for iPad is truly a revolution for post production, ” said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. “Customers will have the power of Hollywood post production tools for editing and colour correction literally in their hands, creating a whole new generation of creative editors and colourists.
