DaVinci Resolve 9.0.3 Adds Timecode Syncing from Audio Tracks

October 30, 2012 07:48 | By

Blackmagic Design announced the release of DaVinci Resolve 9.0.3. The update includes a new timecode feature to add timecode to non-timecode cameras, as well as an improved CinemaDNG control palette, AAF and XML clip management, enhanced stereoscopic 3D grading and support for XML round tripping in the new release of Apple Final Cut Pro X version 10.0.6.

This new DaVinci Resolve software allows cameras that do not support timecode to be used for professional shoots and still offer accurate and synced timecode for editing and conforming. By recording timecode from a timecode generator onto one of the cameras audio tracks, combined with the new Resolve Media Pool timecode reader feature, any camera can be integrated into professional workflows. Through the feature, Resolve is able to read the linear timecode from the audio tracks and instantly update the video timecode for those clips.

The new software update also offers the ability to display camera metadata related to color temperature and tint on the CinemaDNG color palette, giving colorists more precise color correction capabilities. Additionally, Resolve users now have the ability to specify clips that are located in multiple folders in the Resolve storage library when importing AAF/XML, as well as the ability to reset automatic image transform alignments while adjusting stereoscopic 3D convergence.

The software update is available for download from the Blackmagic Design website free of charge for existing DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Lite customers.
