Blackmagic Design has introduced DaVinci Resolve 18 combining editing, color correction, visual effects, motion graphics, and audio post production all in one software suite. DaVinci Resolve 18 is designed to allow users to work faster and at a higher quality because they don’t have to learn multiple apps or switch software for different tasks. New features allow for better remote collaboration using cloud based workflows. Users can host project libraries with Blackmagic Cloud and collaborate on the same timeline, in real time with other users all over the world. The Proxy Generator app creates and manages proxies with a new proxy menu that makes working with them automatic. Users can relink original media and proxies in a single click and Apple Neural Engine support allows up to 30x faster playback on Apple Mac M1 models. DaVinci Resolve 18 also includes new Resolve FX such as ultra beauty and 3D depth maps, improved subtitling for editors, Fairlight fixed bus to FlexBus conversion and more.
Blackmagic has also announced that DaVinci Resolve keyboards have been redesigned as an alternative way to edit that’s much faster than a mouse because users can operate with both hands at the same time. The DaVinci Speed Editor features dedicated edit function keys on the left and a high quality search dial with electronic clutch and transport controls on the right. Users can take advantage of the search dial and source tape buttons with the right hand to locate shots, while simultaneously marking in and out points, performing edits and live trimming with the left hand, all without touching the mouse. The DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard adds a QWERTY keyboard with color coded shortcut keycaps, designed for editors who spend hours each day editing. To learn more visit:
