Powerful acceleration for processor intensive formats, like H.264, makes it possible to edit 4K material on a laptop in realtime. Whether you're working in HD or 4K, with ProRes, H.264 or even RAW images, DaVinci Resolve 14 is completely responsive and fast enough to keep up with your every move.

Legendary DaVinci Quality
Unique YRGB 32-bit float image processing

DaVinci Resolve's Emmy™ award-winning image processing technology features deep 32-bit float processing combined with unique, patented YRGB colour science that processes luminance independent of colour. This allows you to adjust the luminance of video without rebalancing the colour of your highlights, midtones, or shadows. The massive internal colour space is perfect for the latest HDR and wide colour gamut workflows, and lets you generate looks that are simply impossible to create on other systems.

Hardware Control Panels
Work faster, be more creative and get absolute control!

When you have a client looking over your shoulder you need to work fast. DaVinci Resolve control panels are designed to give you fluid, hands-on control over multiple parameters at the same time, allowing you to create looks that are simply impossible with a standard mouse. All controls are logically placed near your natural hand positions and are made out of the highest quality materials. You get smooth, high resolution weighted trackballs, along with precision engineered knobs and dials that feature the perfect amount of resistance so you can accurately adjust any setting. DaVinci Resolve control panels let you instinctively touch every part of the image.

Fairlight Professional Consoles
Modular and upgradable desktop or free standing consoles!

Fairlight mixing consoles provide high quality tactile controls for nearly every parameter and feature in the software. Unique user interfaces and fast to use buttons and controls allow quick mapping of the console keys into a configuration that is optimized for the task at hand, allowing you to work faster with Fairlight audio than any other tool in the world. Desktop and free standing consoles are available in a variety of configurations to meet the needs of your facility.

Mac, Windows and Linux
The only post production solution that runs on all popular platforms!

DaVinci Resolve runs on all major platforms so you can use it at home or in a post facility on a Mac, at a broadcast facility running Windows, or a VFX studio on Linux. This gives you the freedom to use the platform of your choice, making it easy to integrate with your existing systems and workflows. If you're running Red Hat or CentOS Linux, you can even build your own workstation using low cost motherboards, extremely fast processors, massive amounts of RAM and up to 8 GPUs. Imagine building your own super computer for incredible real time performance.

Open and Compatible
The world's most compatible post production solution!

With all of the different workflows and systems out there, you need a post production solution that's compatible and open enough to handle anything! DaVinci Resolve has been designed to work with all major file formats, media types, and post production software. You can use XML, EDLs, or AAF to move projects between DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, and Premiere Pro. Deep integration with Fusion makes it easy to send shots out for VFX work, or you can roundtrip with software such as After Effects. For audio, projects can easily be moved between DaVinci Resolve and ProTools. When you're on a tight deadline, you can count on DaVinci Resolve to "just work!".
