NAB 2016: Blackmagic Design launches DaVinci Resolve 12.5!

Our friends over at the Resolve development team have done it again! This year’s NAB release of Resolve has over 250 new features and 1000 enhancements and bug fixes. The new features range from downright incredible to improving your day to day experience, saving time and bringing the sort of tools we’ll need for the next generation of content creation requirements.

Some of our favourite headline features include:

Fusion Connect Send clips straight into fusion from the timeline.

Resolve FX Included effects for colourists and editors to enchanted projects further – Film Grain, Lens Flares, Lens Blur, Light Rays and others.

HDR Lots of amazing HDR features in here.. Extended HDR grading controls, HDR scopes, HDR support for 16bit cache formats and HDMI 2.0a metadata, manually define nit level to which you are grading, more transform and colour space controls.

Clip Retime Effects are now adjustable using a Retime Curve in context with the timeline clip.

Log tools Redesigned and improved Log grading controls with a Project Setting option to switch between legacy and new behaviour.

Resolve Colour Management Now includes a checkbox and dropdown menu to separate gamut and gamma options.

Edit Sizing Now includes Lens Distortion Correction

DCTL Added support for DaVinci Color Transform Language, .dctl for user defined color transforms – DaVinci Resolve Studio only.

This is only scratching the surface of the extensive new and improved features in Resolve. You need to see it to believe it!
