The ubiquitous professional editing and color correction software, DaVinci Resolve has a new version, # 12 which is available now for download as a Public Beta from the Blackmagic Design support website: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support
- This includes new support for Intel Iris and Iris Pro GPUs. This is a major update that required significant engineering work to complete. Support for Intel Iris and Iris Pro GPUs dramatically improves performance on a wider range of systems, including laptops. This will greatly assist editors and colorists who are working remotely and on-set.
- With the explosion of customers working with high resolution media and native RAW camera files, DaVinci Resolve 12 can now create optimized media proxies with custom settings for both the codec and resolution for even faster editorial performance.
- Also, a new Smooth Cut transition uses proprietary DaVinci optical flow algorithms to create a seamless transition between different parts of an interview so you don’t have to cover jump cuts with b-roll.
Also, of note is that the free version of Resolve, formerly called DaVinci Resolve Lite, will now be known as DaVinci Resolve. The US$995 paid version of DaVinci Resolve software has been renamed to “DaVinci Resolve Studio”.
