    Blackmagic Design Announces DaVinci Resolve 16

    April 8, 2019, 12:46 pm
    Revolutionary new quick cut page, 8K editing, neural engine with face recognition, GPU scopes, faster Fusion, 3D audio and more.

    Blackmagic Design today announced DaVinci Resolve 16, a major update that adds a revolutionary new cut page specifically designed for editors that need to work quickly and on tight deadlines. In addition, DaVinci Resolve 16 includes dozens of other new features for professional editors, colorists, VFX artists and sound engineers. DaVinci Resolve 16 public beta is available for download now from the Blackmagic Design web site.

    DaVinci Resolve 16 will be demonstrated on the Blackmagic Design NAB 2019 booth #SL216.

    Designed specifically for editors working on high end fast turn around work such as television commercials and even news cutting, the cut page is all about speed. It’s an alternate edit page with a streamlined interface and revolutionary new tools that will help customers work faster than ever. The cut page lets customers import, edit, trim, add transitions, titles, automatically match color, mix audio and more. Whether you’re delivering for broadcast or for YouTube, the cut page has everything customers need to get the job done, all in one place. Plus, the regular edit page is still available so customers can switch between edit and cut pages to change editing style right in the middle of a job.

    The cut page challenges the traditional way of working with innovative yet familiar concepts such as source tape mode and an A/B trim tool. Two modern features that are rooted in the past. The cut page isn’t about simplification, it’s about removing the things customers don’t need and building powerful, professional tools that help customers work more quickly. And, sometimes, it means borrowing the things that were great about the past and bringing them into the future.

    Back in the days of tape, finding a clip was easy because customers could just spool up and down the tape to see their media and select shots. Today, finding the right clip in a bin with hundreds of files is slow. With source tape, customers no longer have to waste time hunting through bins to find the clip they need. Simply click on the source tape button and all of the clips in their bin appear in the viewer as a single long "tape". This makes it easy to scrub through all of the shots, find the parts they want, and quickly edit them to the timeline. It’s an old fashioned concept that’s completely modernized to help customers find the shots they need fast.

    Zooming in and out and scrolling timelines is extremely slow. The new cut page features an innovative dual timeline so customers never have to zoom in or out again. The upper timeline shows customers the entire program while the lower timeline shows customers the current work area. Both timelines are fully functional, allowing customers to move and trim clips in whichever timeline is most convenient. Want to move a clip all the way to the end of a program? Simply pick it up from the lower timeline and drag it to the end of the upper timeline to move it down the edit.

    The new DaVinci Neural Engine uses state of the art deep neural networks and learning, along with artificial intelligence to power new features such as speed warp motion estimation for retiming, super scale for up-scaling footage, auto color and color matching, facial recognition and more. The DaVinci Neural Engine is entirely cross-platform and uses the latest GPU innovations for AI and deep learning to provide unparalleled performance and quality. The DaVinci Neural Engine provides simple tools to solve complex, repetitive and time consuming problems. For example, it enables facial recognition to automatically sort and organize clips into bins based on people in the shot.

    DaVinci Resolve 16 also introduces powerful new features that customers have asked for across the rest of the application. New adjustment clips let customers apply effects and grades to clips on the timeline below, quick export can be used to upload projects to YouTube and Vimeo from anywhere in the application, and new GPU accelerated scopes provide more technical monitoring options than before. The massively updated Fairlight page adds elastic wave alignment so customers can stretch waveforms to precisely sync dialog replacement with video, immersive 3D audio support, new bus tracks, automation previews, dialog sweetening tools and even more FairlightFX.

    DaVinci Resolve Studio 16 features major improvements to existing ResolveFX, along with several new plugins that editors and colorists will like. There are new ResolveFX plugins for adding vignettes, drop shadows, removing objects, adding analog noise and damage, chromatic aberration, stylizing video and more. There are also improvements to the scanline, beauty, face refinement, blanking fill, warper, dead pixel fixer and colorspace transformation plugins. Plus, customers can now view and edit ResolveFX keyframes from the timeline curve editor on the edit page or from the keyframe panel on the color page.

    "The new cut page in DaVinci Resolve 16 is the first professional editing interface designed to help television commercial and other high end editors meet super tight deadlines on fast turn around projects," said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. "It’s exciting because we’ve designed a whole new high performance non-linear workflow! The cut page is all about power and speed. Plus, editors that need to work on more complex projects can still use the regular edit page. DaVinci Resolve 16 gives different editors the choice to work the way they want!"
