Blackmagic Design has made available the beta of Davinci Resolve 11
DaVinci Resolve 11 is considered a major upgrade with over 140 improvements, being the editing workflow one of the most important. Davinici is now a fully functional NLE, and it has now added over 70 new editing features including dual monitor support and familiar professional tools like dynamic JKL trimming, audio crossfades and fully customizable keyboard shortcuts for faster editing.
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.
So this could be the beginning of new workflow for a lot of us, finally merging the Color correction with editing process.In terms of color correction, another great function has been added “Automatic Color Match” this will be a great way of converging footage coming from the different cameras. You will be able to film a color chart and use a custom tool to match the set color.
DaVinci Resolve’s new Color Match can automatically give you a primary base grade by analyzing shots containing standard color charts! Color Match lets you set the source gamma, target gamma and target color space for the chart used in your shot. Simply use the chip grid to identify the color chip chart and Resolve will automatically balance the images, even if they were shot on different cameras, under different lighting conditions and with different color temperatures!
This is an important update and it will be available June free of charge to all DaVinci Resolve users. Most of these new features will also be available in DaVinci Resolve Lite.
