Supports Multi-User Collaboration 

Redefine your post production workflow with the ability to prepare footages while editors cut the picture, colorists grade the shots, effects artists work on VFX, and sound editors mix and finish audio. All of this can be achieved at the same time; you no longer have to wait for a locked edited to begin your color and audio processes. Working in parallel, your picture editors, colorists, sound editors, and VFX team can advance your post workflow faster.

These are some of the ways DaVinci Resolve allows for multi-user collaboration:

Clip, Timeline, and Bin Locking - Locking a bin, clip or a timeline lets you safely work on a specific part of the project. You get full access and others have read access until you unlock it.

Built-in Chat Messaging - The integrated chat client lets you speak with other members of the team without ever having to leave DaVinci Resolve so you can all stay on the same page.

Timeline Comparison - The visual timeline comparison tool makes it fast and easy to see differences between two timelines so you can accept and merge changes

Open Storage - You don’t need to buy special, expensive or proprietary storage and servers to work as a team in DaVinci Resolve. You can use any shared storage.


The new high performance playback engine in DaVinci Resolve 15 allows you to fly through edits and color correction with up to 10x the performance. The new playback engine features CPU and GPU optimizations, lower latency, faster UI refresh, support for Apple Metal, and more. These upgrades combine to make DaVinci Resolve faster and far more responsive than ever. Working on long timelines with thousands of clips is incredibly fluid and editing is even more precise. Scrubbing and playback are instant, often starting before you lift your fingers off the keyboard. Powerful acceleration for processor intensive formats, like H.264, makes it possible to edit 4K material on a laptop in realtime. Whether you're working in HD or 4K, with ProRes, H.264 or even RAW images, DaVinci Resolve 15 is completely responsive and fast enough to keep up with your every move.

YRGB 32-Bit Float Image Processing

DaVinci Resolve's Emmy award-winning  image processing technology features deep 32-bit float processing combined with unique, patented YRGB color science that processes luminance independent of color. This allows you to adjust the luminance of video without rebalancing the color of your highlights, midtones, or shadows. The massive internal color space is also perfect for the latest HDR and wide color gamut workflows.

Optional Hardware Control Panels

When you have a client looking over your shoulder you need to work fast. DaVinci Resolve control panels are sold separately. They are designed to provide you with fluid, hands-on control over multiple parameters at the same time. This allows you to create looks that are impossible with a standard mouse. All controls are logically placed near your natural hand positions and are made out of the highest quality materials. You get smooth, high resolution weighted trackballs, along with precision engineered knobs and dials that feature the perfect amount of resistance so you can accurately adjust any setting. DaVinci Resolve control panels let you instinctively touch every part of the image.

Mac, Windows & Linux Compatible

DaVinci Resolve runs on all major platforms so you can use it at home or in a post facility on a Mac, at a broadcast facility running Windows, or a VFX studio on Linux. This gives you the freedom to use the platform of your choice, making it easy to integrate with your existing systems and workflows. If you're running Red Hat or CentOS Linux, you can even build your own workstation using low cost motherboards, extremely fast processors, massive amounts of RAM and up to 8 GPUs. Imagine building your own super computer for incredible real time performance.

Remember that in order to use DaVinci Resolve with a Linux system, you will need to use a Resolve Panel (sold separately).

Open & Compatible

With all of the different workflows and systems out there, you need a post production solution that is compatible and open enough to handle pretty much anything. DaVinci Resolve has been designed to work with all major file formats, media types, and post production software. You can use your XML, EDLs, or AAF to move projects between DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, and Premiere Pro. Deep integration with Fusion makes it easy to send shots out for VFX work, or you can roundtrip with software such as After Effects. For audio, projects can easily be moved between DaVinci Resolve and ProTools.
