Blackmagic Design Releases DaVinci Resolve 10

DaVinci Resolve has become one of the most popular tools for color grading and creating dailies, and now Blackmagic Design has released a pretty major upgrade to the program: DaVinci Resolve 10.

This version includes better integration with editing software such as Final Cut Pro, Avid, or Premiere Pro, full multi-track editing with 16 channels of audio per clip, and OpenFX support. Plus, a new feature called Resolve Live allows users to color grade directly from the video input; grades can be stored and then relinked when the camera files are loaded.

For those of you who might be working on a project in Final Cut Pro X that includes mixed frame rates, mixed media types, multiple audio tracks and color corrections, Resolve 10 will now let you import the project via XML and will online it with full translations of all the elements, while rendering the master from the original Raw camera files. This means you can use Resolve as the tool to online your work and generate the Digital Cinema Package (DCP) file directly from the camera Raw files.

There's good news for those of you using Resolve Lite as well - the free program has been updated to include the addition of Ultra HD resolutions and additional GPU support.

DaVinci Resolve 10 is available as a free download for existing Resolve customers and, as always, you can download Resolve Lite directly from the Blackmagic Design website.

Intro image for article DaVinci Resolve's New Editing Tools & Enhanced FCP Support
Tech News
It wasn't too long ago that we posted about Blackmagic Design's big update to DaVinci Resolve 10, and now version 10.1 has been released. This update brings with it some interesting new features that will surely be appreciated - namely, better XML support for Final Cut Pro and a number of enhanced editing tools.

Users can now align multiple camera takes while editing, which simplifies the process of previewing multiple shot options. Other improvements include the ability to easily copy clips via drag-and-drop, and support for trimming frame-based clips such as DNG and DPX.

In the previous version of Resolve, some users ran into problems when working with FCP and XML imports. Blackmagic has definitely put some thought into this for the newest version: 10.1 includes XML import enhancements for both FCP X 10.1 and FCP 7. Compound clips from FCP X 10.1 with separate A/V elements are now split into individual clips, and imported FCP 7 XMLs now include timeline markers and font properties. Things like sizing, cropping, and composition parameters all translate accurately into the Resolve timeline, which is especially helpful for those editors who need to reframe large-sensor media.

For a full list of all the new features, visit Blackmagic Design's site. Existing DaVinci Resolve customers can update directly to 10.1 and, of course, Resolve Lite is still available as a free download.
