DaVinci Resolve 12 Public Beta is Available Now for Download


LR-DavinciResolve12ColorPageBlackmagic Design announced that the public beta of DaVinci Resolve 12, its professional editing and color correction software, is now available for download from the company’s website. The system lets users edit, grade and finish projects all in a single tool. In addition, Blackmagic Design announced new naming for the DaVinci Resolve product line, plus extra features that were not included in the original launch.

The DaVinci Resolve 12 Public Beta will allow customers to start testing and integrating it into their facilities, and provide the company with valuable feedback.

The DaVinci Resolve product line has also been renamed. The free DaVinci Resolve Lite will now be renamed to just DaVinci Resolve. The $995 paid version of DaVinci Resolve Software has been renamed to DaVinci Resolve Studio. DaVinci Resolve Studio is for customers that need to build advanced editing and color correction systems with multi GPU support, DCI 4K, 3D stereoscopic tools, multi-user collaboration tools and remote rendering.

DaVinci Resolve 12 includes new features that have not been previously announced, including support for Intel Iris and Iris Pro GPUs. Support for Intel Iris and Iris Pro GPUs dramatically improves performance on a wider range of systems, including laptops. This will 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 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.

“We’ve seen DaVinci Resolve 12 in action, and we can’t wait to start cutting with it,” said Patrick Woodard, supervising colorist at DigitalFilm Tree who has worked on hit shows such as NCIS:LA, UnReal, Agent X and Rush Hour. “This is a professional editor that will make a big impact in Hollywood, and in our operation. Resolve 12 provides collaborative editing and color grading like we’ve never seen before. An editor can work with multiple colorists on the same timeline simultaneously.”
