The Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 15 Studio is an advanced color correction software and is now a full non-linear editing system. This system allows you to import projects from other NLEs, such as Premiere Pro, as XML files. You can edit, color correct, finish, and deliver projects from one system. Resolve is highly sophisticated yet oriented toward the individual user, large collaborative teams, and studio owners. This software is scalable and resolution independent, so it can be used on a set, or in a small studio, and even integrated into large production pipelines.
Resolve is a node-based color grading system (nodes being similar layers) where each node can have color correction, isolated areas, and effects. There can be an unlimited number of nodes joined together in sequence or in parallel. You can combine grades, mixers, effects, keys, and plug-ins in any order to create limitless color effects. Resolve's color grading functionality includes hundreds of advanced features and capabilities in addition, such as grading from raw files, 3D tracking, and automatic color matching.
The editing functionality in Resolve is designed to handle TV dramas, commercials, multi-camera productions, and all other project types from big to small. The trimming tool is context sensitive, which means it is based on where you place the mouse cursor on the timeline, Resolve will automatically switch to the trimming function you need, so you can ripple, roll, slip, slide, this helps you to be able to extend and shorten your footage without having to manually switch tools. Resolve allows for multiple people to work on the same timeline simultaneously for perfect time efficient collaborative work. Along with the grading side, the editing side also has hundreds of advanced features and capabilities.
Resolve is scalable and supports multiple GPUs all working together. You can use multi-GPU systems such as the Mac Pro or build a dedicated Windows system with up to 3 GPUs. Resolve also features advanced media management tools designed for editorial and color workflows. You can move, copy, consolidate, relink, and archive media, timelines, or entire projects. Resolve's clone tool will back up your valuable camera files on location so you can copy camera files to multiple destinations with checksum validation for safekeeping while you're still on set.
Has the capabilities of editing metadata, syncing sound, and prepping footage for editing, grading, or visual effects. Resolve supports almost any format, and also includes powerful delivery options for versioning, finishing, and delivery at any resolution or format, so you can export for various destination types. Resolve works from your camera originals so your finished master is a first generation graded copy of the original camera raw files. Additionally, exporting can take advantage of remote rendering, using another Resolve on the network to render the job.
All image processing is at the 32-bit floating point and Resolve uses a unique YRGB color space for grading. These two features combine to give you a dramatically wider color correction range, and you'll be able to adjust the luminance gain of your video without rebalancing the color of your whites, mids, or blacks.
Resolve was designed with the ability to integrate with dozens of other applications so that you can focus more on your project. Resolve can share sequences and round trip projects with Final Cut Pro X, Media Composer, Premiere Pro, and another editing, audio, and VFX and motion graphics software. You can edit your project on any system, then link back to your full quality camera raw files using XML, AAF, or EDL and finish in greater bit depth with Resolve. You can also use AAF export to send a project to ProTools with discreet audio clips and a single layer video mix down for audio finishing. Get support for multiple GPUs, 4K output, motion blur effects, temporal and spatial noise reduction, 3D tools, remote and multi-user collaboration tools, and more with DaVinci Resolve Studio. For even more enhanced workflow, you can incorporate the optional Resolve Advanced Panel, which is an award-winning control surface for more precise color correction.
Note: Your purchase will provide you with the most recent version of Resolve Studio. Resolve Studio is compatible with Linux only when an optional Resolve Advanced Control Panel is incorporated. In such a case, dedicated Linux features will also be available.
