The Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve is a software / hardware combination package that includes the Resolve color correction software and the Resolve control surface. You can achieve high-quality and precise color correction using the DaVinci Resolve system.
Incorporating node-based image processing, the DaVinci Resolve provides color correction, power windows, and effects for nodes that offer a powerful color correction medium as compared to layers. Faster workflows in real-time are offered via the Resolve control surface. You are also provided with 32-bit floating point and YRGB image processing allowing you the highest depths in color correction. The Resolve control surface incorporates a slide-out keyboard that is useful when naming or renaming files, and can be neatly tucked away when not in use. All functions are accessible via separate keys such as reference keys and the fader T-bar that allows you to wipe between reference stills.
Hollywood’s most powerful and creative color correction!
DaVinci color correctors have been the standard in post production since 1984. There are thousands of colorists worldwide who understand the performance, quality and workflow of DaVinci. DaVinci is the name behind more feature films, television commercials, documentaries, television production and music videos than any other grading system.
When you’re in a room full of demanding clients with conflicting ideas, colorists know that only DaVinci has the quality, real time performance, creative features and powerful control panel you need to work fast! You can upgrade DaVinci Resolve as you grow! Start by downloading DaVinci Resolve Lite free of charge, then upgrade when you need more power!
The World Leader
True Real Time
Computer based solutions are normally limited to a single GPU or a single computer. DaVinci Resolve smashes this limitation because it lets you add extra GPU cards or even clusters of multiple computers for super computer power! This means you get the real time performance you need when you’re in a room full of clients. Add dozens of primaries, secondaries, power windows, multi point tracking, blurs and more. Then just hit play, it always works!
Wide Camera Support
With an incredible range of digital film cameras available, DaVinci Resolve includes more native camera file support so you can grade directly from the camera files to get the best results. Grade direct with CinemaDNG RAW files, ARRI Alexa™ RAW files, RED One™, EPIC™ and Scarlet™ R3D files with premium de-bayer including 5K, monochrome and HDRx with image blend. Also supported is Cineform™, Cineform 3D, Phantom™, GoPro™, Canon™ C300, C500 and 1D, 5D, 7D and Sony™ F65/F55/F5 RAW and XAVC and many more!
Fast Creative Features
DaVinci Resolve combines powerful features and real time performance so your creativity is never slowed down! Get the following incredible tools; Unlimited Grades, Primaries, Secondaries, Optical ReFraming, 3D Object Tracking, Live Grading, Image Stabilization, High Dynamic Range, RGB Mixing, Custom Curves, Custom HSL Curve Grading, Power Windows, Grouped Clip Grading, Dynamic Timeline, Color Decision Lists, Gallery Stills and Grades, MetaData Management, Export 3D LUT from Grade, Copy and Paste Grades, Safe Area Markers, Blanking Presets and more!
Unique YRGB Colorspace
All image processing is at the deepest 32-bit floating point YRGB so all corrections are always operating at the highest bit depths in real time. Deeper bit depths combined with YRGB colorspace mean you get dramatically wider color correction range and can generate “looks” that simple NLE color correction cannot match. DaVinci’s YRGB processing means you can adjust the luminance gain without rebalancing the color of your whites, mids or blacks so you’re not chasing the correction you’re aiming for!
Optical Quality Processing
DaVinci’s high quality image processing is so revolutionary it won an EmmyTM award for contributions to the television industry! All image processing is at the deepest 32-bit floating point and the unique DaVinci correction algorithms mean you get a more optical feel to corrections. When pushing grades, whites blow out in a more subtle and delicate way without the horrible clipped look. Then, when you need to resize, reposition or zoom any shot, the full quality is retained and all in real time!
DaVinci Resolve for Mac and Windows is the world’s most advanced color correction as a software only solution compatible with high performance GPU cards and off the shelf control panels including the Tangent Devices Element™, JL Cooper Eclipse CX™ and the Avid Artist Color™ control panels. Includes 32-bit float YRGB processing for all effects, power windows, tracking, primaries and secondaries and 3D object tracker. Great first color correction solution when you are working heavily in SD and HD!
