Blackmagic's colour correction software has made the leap to being a full-fledged non-linear editor, with a host of new features for editors and colourists to play with
The latest version of Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve comes with an overhauled interface that’s easier on the eyes and designed specifically for extended use (so will hopefully make editing all-nighters a little less painful).
Also on the cards are new multi cam editing tools, multi-track trimming, and on-screen controls for graphics and animation.
Blackmagic says the editing tools will be context-sensitive, meaning the software will automatically know how you want to trim based on the position of your mouse
A host of new organisational tools are also included, designed to improve workflow and management of large-scale projects. Collaborative options are also available
Blackmagic put together a quick video demoing some of the new functionality, which you can watch above.
Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 12 is available as free software, or in the paid-for ‘Studio’ version, which has extra bells and whistles such as 4K output. If you’ve already shelled out for previous paid versions of the software, then the upgrade is free.
