Blackmagic Design announced the newest version of their popular color grading software DaVinci Resolve 11 earlier this year. Today it was released and it brings a bunch of new features that also make it a full fledged editing software!
I recently transitioned to Final Cut Pro X, because I had to edit 5K RAW footage and I spent many hours learning its unusual editing method. Right now I’m facing a different option. DaVinci Resolve is both my favourite color grading software as well as a very capable and reliable tool that can easily handle 5K RAW. I’m convinced I’m not the only editor who is slowly letting go of Final Cut 7 and intrigued by the idea of using DaVinci Resolve 11 as an NLE.
One of the most intriguing facts is that DaVinci Resolve is not only very professional, but the Lite version of the software is also very free, with some limitations (resolution only up to 3840×2160) that those who can’t afford the full version can usually live without. If you need the full version you will soon be able to get it here.
Yesterday we wrote about the newest features of the Canon 5D mark III RAW hack which’s cinemaDNG files happen to work beautifully with DaVinci Resolve, making this the ideal editing software for 5D mark III RAW footage.
