Blackmagic Design team members are rightly proud of their DaVinci Resolve 16 product and its host of new features. They claim it’s the world’s only solution that combines professional 8K editing, visual effects, colour correction and audio post production all in one software tool.
So, you can move between editing, effects, colour and audio pretty much with a single click. It’s also reported to be the only solution designed for multiple user collaboration. This means that editors, colourists, assistants, sound designers and VFX artists can all simultaneously work on the same project in real-time.
Exciting new features
This latest update is particularly sought after thanks to an array of new features. The new Cut Page has particularly caught the eye, as it is specifically designed for editors that need to work quickly and to tight deadlines.
Meanwhile, the new DaVinci Neural Engine uses machine learning to bring in powerful new features like speed warp, facial recognition and more. Fusion is also noticeably faster and Fairlight adds immersive 3D Audio.
Let’s not forget adjustment clips can let you apply effects and grades to clips on the timeline. You can then ‘quick export’ to upload projects to YouTube and Vimeo from anywhere in the application. New GPU accelerated scopes can also provide more technical monitoring options than ever before.
So, as Blackmagic Design say, DaVinci Resolve 16 is “a massive release” with hundreds of features directly sought after by customers.
The complete package
It’s difficult to think of a major feature that DaVinci Resolve 16 doesn’t have in its armoury. You can enjoy amazing video transitions and effects which can be customised later. Pure digital audio tools are also readily available, whether you’re after music or you would like to record your own narration.
So, if you’re after complete video optimisation – you’ve come to the right place! Video stabilisation will make sure any camera shakiness is reduced. You can also speed up, slow down or reverse any video clips during playback. Other visual effects can also be fine-tuned, while plugin support is available to add thousands of tools and effects.
The list really does go on! The Blackmagic Design website is packed with explanations of all DaVinci Resolve 16’s top features. Once you have your video content sorted you can then share with family and friends in just a few clicks, whether it’s on social media, mobile or burning onto DVD.
The bottom line?
Overall, whether you’re an individual artist or part of a collaborative team, DaVinci Resolve 16 can be a game changer. It has been used in the high-end postproduction and finishing of more television shows, films and commercials than any other software for a reason!
Yes, it’s home to some pretty advanced features, but that’s no reason to be put off getting this first-class software. A friendly and intuitive user interface and training opportunities help make this product more accessible, meaning anyone can get the most out of it, whatever they’re working on.
