Hollywood's most powerful colour corrector is now also the world's most amazing editor

DaVinci Resolve 12 combines professional non-linear video editing with the world’s most advanced color corrector so now you can edit, color correct, finish and deliver all from one system! DaVinci Resolve is completely scalable and resolution independent so it can be used on set, in a small studio or integrated into the largest Hollywood production pipeline! From creative editing and multi camera television production to high end finishing and color correction, only DaVinci Resolve features the creative tools, compatibility, speed and legendary image quality you need to manage your entire workflow, which is why it is the number one solution used on Hollywood feature films.

The world's most advanced grading tools.

DaVinci colour correctors have been the standard in post production since 1984. There are thousands of colourists worldwide who understand the performance, quality and workflow of DaVinci. DaVinci Resolve features unlimited grading with the creative tools colourists need and incredible multi GPU real time performance. That's why DaVinci is the name behind more feature films, commercials, television productions, documentaries and music videos than any other grading system.

Collaborate with over 70 new editing features

DaVinci Resolve 11 includes over 70 new editing features including an amazing new collaborative workflow that lets multiple people work together on the same timeline at the same time. Editing tools are context sensitive, that means DaVinci Resolve automatically knows how you want to trim based on the position of the mouse so you don't have to waste time switching tools. You also get customizable keyboard shortcuts so you can edit quickly and move between applications with ease. DaVinci Resolve 11 has the most advanced collaborative editing tools that help you work fast so you can focus on the visual flow of your edit.

Scalable power and real time performance.

DaVinci Resolve is scalable and supports multiple GPUs all working together as found in the new MacPro, as well as the latest Windows and Linux computers. You get support for up to 8 GPUs so that you can build dedicated systems that are super fast and deliver blazing real time performance. That's important when you are working on high pressure projects with a room full of clients. Whether you are working in your own post production suite or grading the next Hollywood blockbuster, workstations running DaVinci Resolve can be super charged to keep up with you and your clients.

Work faster with absolute control

When you have a client looking over your shoulder you need to work fast. The DaVinci Resolve control surface lets you adjust multiple parameters simultaneously, making grading faster. The control surface features dedicated buttons, knobs and perfectly weighted trackballs that give you the subtle control you need for creating the most amazing looks. You get 32 soft knobs with automatic LCD labels so you'll never have to page through multiple menus to find common adjustments. Save and recall grades to memory, load gallery stills and more at the push of a button while you keep grading at full speed.

Ensure complex jobs are well organized.

Saving and managing media is a critical part of every project. DaVinci Resolve's new clone tool will back up your valuable camera files on location so you can check your footage before striking the set. The clone tool copies your camera files to multiple destinations with checksum validation for safekeeping. DaVinci Resolve can also edit metadata, sync sound and organize footage for editing, colour grading or visual effects. DaVinci Resolve helps you manage media on local drives or over your network and because it works with virtually every camera and video format you don't need to convert files to begin editing or grading.

Finish and deliver to virtually any format.

Whether you're creating a master for TV release, a digital cinema package for theatrical distribution or finishing for delivery over the internet, DaVinci Resolve includes powerful delivery options for versioning, finishing and delivery at any resolution. You can export your media in a variety of formats with optional burn-ins, output EXR or DPX files for visual effects work and uncompressed 10 bit or ProRes files for editing in applications like Final Cut Pro X. DaVinci Resolve works from your camera originals so you always get the highest quality output. That means your finished master is a first generation graded copy of the original camera RAW files.

Unique YRGB 32 bit float processing.

DaVinci's high quality image processing is so revolutionary it won an Emmy™ award for contributions to the television industry. All image processing is at the deepest 32 bit floating point and DaVinci Resolve uses a unique YRGB colour space for grading. This allows you to adjust the luminance gain of your video without rebalancing the colour of your whites, mids, or blacks. That means you won't have to chase the correction you're aiming for. 32 bit processing combined with YRGB colour science gives you a dramatically wider colour correction range, so you can generate looks that other systems simply cannot match.

The world's most compatible post production solution.

Move projects between your favorite NLE and VFX software. DaVinci Resolve can share sequences and round trip projects with Final Cut Pro X, Media Composer, Premiere Pro and more. That means you can edit your project on any system, then using XML, AAF or EDL's, you can link back to your full quality camera RAW files and finish in greater bit depth with DaVinci Resolve. You can also drop VFX shots from After Effects and Nuke directly into the timeline for final grading and finishing. DaVinci Resolve is the world's most compatible post production solution and can be used with dozens of other software tools so you can focus on getting your job done.

Pre-installation Notes

  • Support for decoding and encoding of easyDCP formats is not currently available on Linux

Performing Audio Ducking using Sidechain

DaVinci Resolve now supports automatic audio ducking using sidechain in the Fairlight page Dynamics effect.

Enable "Send" in the track dynamics compression section on one of multiple tracks where you would like to emphasize or prioritize the audio. Then enable Compression and "Listen" on all the tracks you would like to compress or duck. The threshold and ratio can be adjusted in the compression settings to modify the amount of compression in the signal.

External Audio Processes

DaVinci Resolve now has support for a round-trip mechanism which allows any clip on the timeline to be sent to an external application for audio processing. The updated file created by the external audio process is automatically added to the timeline as a new layer.

External Audio Processes can be added and managed in the Audio Plugins section of System Preferences. The round-trip process can be triggered from the clip context menu on the timeline.

Generating Supplemental IMF Packages

DaVinci Resolve Studio now supports generation of supplemental packages for IMFs when using Resolve's Kakadu-based J2K decoder and encoder. Please note that you will need to disable the easyDCP decoder option in the Configuration tab of System Preferences to enable this feature.

With an IMF composition in the Media Pool, you can select "Create New Timeline Using Composition Playlist" in the clips context menu to create a new timeline. If the IMF package has any associated Dolby Vision metadata, it can be applied using an option in the creation dialog.

Any portions of the IMF timeline can now be replaced with source clips from the Media Pool. The timeline clip's context menu has an option for not including the replacement clip for supplemental packages. There is an additional context menu option for selecting either the original or updated Dolby Vision analysis and trim metadata.

In the Deliver page, the "Supplemental Package" option can be enabled in order to generate the supplemental IMF using the new clips and the Dolby Vision metadata.

Performing Photon validation on IMF packages

DaVinci Resolve Studio now supports validation of IMF packages using Photon. In order to activate this feature, the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) will need to be installed on the machine.

Photon validation can be performed by right clicking on IMF packages in the Media Pool and selecting "Perform Photon Validation". Additionally, there is a checkbox in the Deliver page advanced video settings to perform Photon validation after the IMF package is rendered.
