Having just unboxed our first Mac Pro (video coming soon) we’re itching to load up some software and put it through its paces. How fortunate, then, that Blackmagic Design have chosen today to release DaVinci Resolve 10.1.
This iteration includes improved OpenCL support in light of the new Mac Pro and sees the return of 3D support, which has been missing from DaVinci Resolve v10 thus far. Another feature that’s caught our eye is the new Rich Text title support, allowing you to edit the size, font, colour and position of text directly from the timeline.
We’ll have a video showing how DaVinci Resolve 10.1 performs on Mac Pro soon, but in the meantime here’s the official BMD statement:
Blackmagic Design today announced the release of DaVinci Resolve 10.1 software, which adds new editing and 3D stereoscopic features as well as support for Final Cut Pro X 10.1. DaVinci Resolve 10.1 is available now for download free of charge for all existing DaVinci Resolve customers from the Blackmagic Design website.
The new DaVinci Resolve 10.1 update adds innovative editing features that include: allowing users to preview and align multiple camera takes while editing, so they can quickly switch between takes to show their clients shot options live from the timeline. Editors can now copy individual clips in the editing timeline with a simple drag and drop, making it easier to use the same footage in different parts of the edit.
The enhanced editing tools also include support for trimming frame based clips such as DNG and DPX that reduces time in transferring clips for even faster workflows, as well as Rich Text title support which allows every character’s size, position and color to be adjusted individually directly from the Edit page.
Also featured in DaVinci Resolve 10.1 are XML import enhancements for both FCP X 10.1 and FCP 7 customers. Compound clips from FCP X 10.1 with separate A/V elements are now split into individual clips and imported FCP 7 XMLs include font properties and timeline markers as well as being able to bring across sizing, cropping and composition parameters. Now shot reframing adjustments made during Final Cut Pro editing will translate even more accurately into the DaVinci Resolve timeline.
Customers with the full software license of DaVinci Resolve will get enhanced 3D stereoscopic tools including a full stereoscopic multi-track editing timeline, enhanced convergence adjustments and automatic alignment.
“We are really excited to be adding even more advanced editing features so quickly after the release of DaVinci Resolve 10,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “Resolve 10 has been a massive update, with over 50 new features including temporal processing, Open FX plug-ins and powerful on-set tools. The additional editing tools we are releasing today give customers more precise control over their projects from within the DaVinci Resolve timeline and improves integration with popular editing and visual effects software so that customers get the best workflow possible.”
