FlexBus is a flexible bus architecture that uses up to 26 channel wide multi purpose buses instead of fixed buses. You can send tracks to buses, buses to tracks, and buses to buses in as many cascade layers deep as needed to create massive sessions. Route anything to anything without limitations!
Instantly Detect and Display Transients!
The new transient analysis tool automatically detects individual words, beats, or sound effects! Transient markers are displayed as vertical lines in the waveform. You can navigate between them using the arrow keys. Transient markers make it easy to identify specific parts of a sound for editing!
Automation Follows Edit
Automation lets you record virtually any parameter change over time. There’s a new option that allows automation to follow edit changes. That means when you trim, move or edit any clip, the automation you’ve recorded will follow it. You can make last minute edits while still maintaining your mix!
Live Video Previews
The viewer now tracks your movements around the timeline, scrolling as you slide clips and markers or drawing ranges which allow you to use the video as a reference. Additionally, you can draw ranges and drag clips and markers out of the viewable range with the timeline scrolling intelligently with you.
New Analysis and Metering Options
DaVinci Resolve 17 now supports offline loudness analysis so you can see the loudness characteristics of a clip before adding it to your project or playing it back. The new surround sound analyzer provides a graphical spatial image of the sound. Meters can also be double stacked for large projects.
Supports Massive Projects
Fairlight Audio Core and FlexBus enable large projects with thousands of tracks on a single system! Previously this required "chase" computers to be sync’d with a primary system. Plus DaVinci Resolve’s multi user collaboration lets multiple sound editors work on the entire project at the same time!
DaVinci Resolve 17 makes the cut page even smarter with great new features designed to help you finish quick turn around projects even faster! The new metadata slate view with bin dividers is a revolutionary new way to visually view, sort and find shots quickly. Audio trim mode displays larger waveforms for more precise trimming. Smart reframing automatically re-frames images so you can export projects in vertical, square, or other aspect ratios without having to manually reposition every shot. New icon view in the library lets you preview effects, transitions and titles. You can import and edit projects from ATEM Mini Pro ISO, there’s a new clip inspector, fast timeline switching and more!
Metadata View and Clip Sorting
Metadata slate view with bin dividers makes it easy to sort and find clips based on scene, shot, camera and more! You get cards with thumbnail and metadata, which is determined by sort order. When used with source tape, it’s the fastest way to jump in and out of scenes or groups of shots.
Trimming Against Audio Waveforms
You can now see larger audio waveforms while trimming! When you click the audio trim button, large waveforms will replace the filmstrip in the lower timeline. This makes it incredibly easy to see where dialog starts and stops so you can trim exactly where you want without wasting time!
Smart Reframe for Social Media
Now you can edit in 16:9 HD or Ultra HD and quickly create square or vertical versions for posting to Instagram and other apps! The DaVinci Neural Engine automatically identifies faces and repositions them inside the new frame so you don’t have to do it manually. You can even fine tune the results!
Fast Effects Search and Live Preview
Finding the right effect, transition or title is faster and easier than ever! The elegant, new multi column view lets you see more and scroll less. Descriptive icons also help you quickly find what you need. Plus, you can hover scrub the mouse across any item to see a live preview in the viewer!
Import ATEM Mini Projects
Live production projects from ATEM Mini Pro ISO can be opened as a video edit. The sync bin with multiview lets you fine tune edits from the original live production or even replace shots. You can use the HD ISO recordings from ATEM or relink to Blackmagic RAW camera files for finishing in Ultra HD!
Updated Clip Inspector
While the viewer tool strip is great for quick adjustments, the inspector lets you access virtually all audio and video settings, metadata, RAW image controls and more! You can quickly switch between groups of settings using the tabs at the top. Settings can be animated using the diamond keyframe buttons!
The edit page adds dozens of time saving new features that professional editors have asked for! New proxy workflows dramatically improve performance and make it easy to move projects between systems. You can now sync clips on the timeline and convert them to a multicam group, make source side adjustments before editing a clip into a project, share individual timelines and bins, remove 3:2 pulldown in realtime, and more. The edit page also supports mattes and keying for composites, motion blur on certain transitions, and the ability to render effects heavy portions of the timeline to a new file. The DaVinci Neural Engine also gives you scene cut detection, de-interlacing and smart reframing.
Proxy Media Workflows
Now you can create easily managed, independent proxy media that dramatically improves system performance and makes projects portable! Proxies can be as small as 1/16th resolution and saved as H.264, H.265, ProRes or DNxHR. They can even be generated internally or externally by third party tools.
Easily Sync Multicam Clips
It’s now easier to create synchronized multicam clips! Simply stack clips on the timeline and use the new "auto align" tool to sync based on timecode or waveform. You can also manually move clips into position to create a sync map. Timelines can be converted into a multicam clip or a compound clip!
Keying and Compositing
New Resolve FX 3D, HSL and luma keyer plug-ins let you pull keys directly in the timeline on both the edit and cut pages! In addition, alpha channels from Resolve FX and Open FX plug-ins are now supported, as are embedded alpha channels and external matte files giving you even more compositing options!
Render in Place
The render in place command lets you generate render files for any portion of the timeline. Once rendered, you can move, edit and trim without having to re-render. Render files can be created in any format and saved wherever you want. Unlike cache files, render files are easy to manage and portable!
Source Clip Adjustments
Source side adjustments let you change a clip before editing it into the timeline. All instances of the clip are edited in with the changes. For example, you can adjust RAW controls, add a LUT, remap audio tracks, change sizing, playback frame rate and more, all before editing a clip into the timeline!
Sharing Timelines and Bins
You can now import and export individual timelines or bins, giving you more ways to collaborate! You don’t have to share entire projects and you no longer have to copy and paste timelines or bins from one project into another! Timeline and bin files are easy to share and small enough to email!
Improved Editing with Interlaced Material
New support for native processing of interlaced timelines results in higher quality compositing and titling for interlaced deliverables. High quality DaVinci Neural Engine de-interlacing analyzes motion between fields to reconstruct progressive frames. You also get realtime 3:2 pulldown removal!
Enhanced Timeline Organization
DaVinci Resolve 17 features incredibly useful timeline management and organization tools. You can disable unused timelines without deleting them. This removes them from the viewer’s timeline drop down menu, which can also now be organized alphabetically, by creation date, or in order of recent use.
Scene Cut Detection
Scene cut analysis can now be performed on both the cut and edit pages. It’s the fastest way to cut up long clips that you need to re-edit or color grade when you don’t have the original source files. The DaVinci Neural Engine analyzes the images, finds the edit points, and cuts up the clip for you!
Compositions you create on the Fusion page can now be saved as a template and used on the edit or cut page! New animation curve modifiers can be used to automatically retime animations when you change their duration in an edit. Audio playback with waveform display makes it easier to create precisely timed animations, there are shared markers with the edit page and more. In addition, 27 GPU accelerated Resolve FX have been added to the Fusion page, including the noise reduction and sharpening tools from the color page! New node view bookmarks make it easy to navigate large comps, the toolbar can be customized with your favorite tools, and vertical layouts are supported in the node editor.
Build Your Own Effects with Customizable Templates
Fusion effect templates let you create any effect imaginable and apply them to clips on the edit and cut pages! Simply build a composition, save it as a macro, define the parameters you want to make visible, and save it in the correct location. Just drag Fusion effect from the library onto any clip!
Automatically Retime Animations
Animation curve modifiers let you easily stretch or squish keyframes and add bounce, mirror or loop animations that automatically change when the duration of the composition changes. When you drop Fusion titles or effects onto the timeline and change its duration, the animation adjusts accordingly!
Sync Audio Animations
The Fusion page can now playback audio from the edit or cut page timeline. You can choose a mix down from the timeline, or you can listen to the source clip’s audio. Waveforms are displayed in the keyframe editor, allowing you to create precisely timed animations that are in sync with the audio!
Custom Vector Shapes
Vector shape tools make it easier to create motion graphics! You get ellipsis, rectangles, polygons and stars, along with boolean operators for combining shapes to create intricate designs. Grid, jitter, offset and transform, let you customize animations. Shapes can also be used as particle sources!

These APIs allow third party developers to create integrated asset and workflow management solutions for DaVinci Resolve, as well as encoder plug-ins for custom output options.
A New Faster Way to Edit
Non-linear editing on a computer hasn’t really changed in years. While the interfaces may differ from system to system, the core concepts and workflows have remained the same. The cut page challenges the traditional way of working with innovative, yet familiar concepts such as source tape mode and an A/B trim tool. Two modern features that are rooted in the past. The cut page isn’t about simplification, it’s about removing the things you don’t need and building powerful, professional tools that help you work more quickly. And, sometimes, it means borrowing the things that were great about the past and bringing them into the future!
Back in the days of tape, finding a clip was easy because you could just spool up and down the tape to see your media and select shots. Today, finding the right clip in a bin with hundreds of files is slow. With source tape, you no longer have to waste time hunting through bins to find the clip you need. Simply click on the source tape button and all of the clips in your bin appear in the viewer as a single long "tape". This makes it easy to scrub through all of your shots, find the parts you want, and quickly edit them to the timeline! It’s an old fashioned concept that’s completely modernized to help you find the shots you need fast!
Zooming in and out and scrolling timelines is extremely slow! The new cut page features an innovative dual timeline so you never have to zoom in or out again. The upper timeline shows you the entire program while the lower timeline shows you the area in which you’re working. Both timelines are fully functional, allowing you to move and trim clips in whichever timeline is most convenient. Want to move a clip all the way to the end of your program? Simply pick it up from the lower timeline and drag it to the end of the upper timeline to move it down the edit. With the dual timeline, you’ll always know where you are because you always have a zoomed in timeline that’s ideal for trimming and fine tuning your edits using the contextual tools.
Dedicated Trim Tool
Oftentimes, the only place you can perform accurate trimming is in the timeline. However with the new cut page, you can view trim points displayed in the viewer and trim extremely accurately. Also known as an A/B trimmer, this new graphical view lets you adjust each side of the edit with numeric frame counters and nudge tools. The new dedicated trim tool becomes active any time you trim a clip and allows precise trimming of clips before adding them into the timeline. Plus, when trimming in the timeline you can trim in 3 locations – the lower timeline, the upper timeline and the trim editor!
Reviewing footage that you didn’t shoot yourself can delay the start of an edit session. It’s vital to become familiar with your media before you can start editing. Fast review speeds up this process by fast playing through your clips and intelligently adjusting playback speed depending on the length of the clip. Fast review works with the source tape, or even the timeline, and lets you quickly review media without playing back any single clip too fast, so you don't inadvertently miss a shot. Short clips will playback slower than longer clips, however long clips are limited in speed so they don't play too fast. You also get tape style audio scrubbing with automatic pitch correction which makes it easier to understand the audio at higher speeds!
Transform, Color, Audio and Text
The cut page puts all the basic tools you need in one consolidated strip below the viewer. You get transformation tools for picture in picture effects, color balance, retiming, stabilization, dynamic zoom, audio, text, and filter effects, all in one place. That means you’ll be able to quickly adjust color, change an audio level, or add titles and effects without having to ever leave the cut page!
Cut, Dissolve and Smooth Cut
The cut, dissolve and smooth cut buttons let you quickly switch an edit point between the most common types of transitions. The cut button turns an edit point into a hard cut between two clips and the dissolve button creates a standard cross dissolve. Smooth cut uses advanced optical flow image analysis to magically smooth out jump cuts between similar clips!
The cut page features all of the standard edit types that you expect. The difference is that editing on the cut page is intelligent! It automatically makes edits at the trim point nearest the location of the playhead, so you can work more quickly and don’t have to keep moving your playhead into position!
Transitions and Effects
Instantly access and apply the most popular video transitions, effects and title templates directly from the cut page! Simply click on the transition button or the effects library button at the top of the screen and you’ll see dozens of transitions, wipes, and effects. Just drag and drop the one you want into your timeline, adjust its settings and watch it play back in realtime!
With the cut page designed to work on smaller monitors, it also includes other functions so you can import media and deliver without going to other pages. The cut page features media import buttons to import individual files or entire directory structures with subfolders right into the bin. This means you don't need to use the media management page which can sometimes be too complex for smaller monitors on laptops. The cut page is fully integrated into DaVinci Resolve, so you get compatibility with virtually every video format, plus there's never a need to transcode files or work with proxies. Simply import your footage and start editing!
When you’re on a tight deadline you need to be able to deliver finished programs fast. The new quick export tool lets you quickly render and upload your finished program to online services such as YouTube and Vimeo. The quick export menu is on all DaVinci Resolve pages so you can now instantly render out a finished edit without using the deliver page. You can also create your own quick export presets for saving local files.
Great for Portable Editing
The new cut page is designed to work well on smaller laptop screens. If you’re in the field on a 13" notebook and smaller screen, the user interface automatically scales and reconfigures itself to give you the highest amount of usable space so you can still edit quickly and get your program finished! When you move to a larger display, the user interface scales up beautifully giving you even more room to keep working. Every feature on the cut page has been designed to save space and allow editing on smaller monitors.
DaVinci Editor Keyboard
When you edit with a mouse, it's like having one hand tied behind your back! The new DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard lets you edit with both hands, dramatically speeding up your workflow! It’s a professional keyboard with transport controls on the right side and edit functions on the left side. This means you can use the search dial and source tape buttons with your right hand to locate shots, while simultaneously marking in and out points, performing edits and live trimming with your left hand. It’s incredibly fast and many times faster than what’s possible with a mouse! The keyboard is a true professional design built from machined metal, with an elegant search dial that features an electronic clutch so you can quickly locate shots and trim edits live! That means you don’t have to waste time mousing around to press buttons. Everything you need is at your fingertips!
The world’s fastest and most advanced professional NLE

With DaVinci Resolve you can have multiple timelines open at the same time which makes working in larger projects dramatically faster than ever before!
Revolutionary new way to navigate clips based on audio waveforms!
The source viewer in DaVinci Resolve features a revolutionary audio waveform overlay that allows you to see the audio waveform and video clip at the same time. This lets you quickly navigate to different parts of a clip based on spikes, silent areas or other visual cues in the audio waveform so you can mark clips and create split edits with confidence.
Edit footage from multiple cameras in realtime!
Cut programs while playing back multiple sources in a 2, 4, 9 or 16 up multi camera grid view. Synchronize camera angles based on timecode, in or out points, or audio. DaVinci Resolve can even recognize camera starts and stops, and uses metadata for angle and name information. You can even grade entire camera angles all at once!
Working with Bins
Organize footage manually or automatically!
Create arbitrary bins to organize footage however you’d like, or use Smart Bins to automatically organize clips based on metadata. Bins can now be opened into their own windows so you can arrange them on multiple screens. New bin locking lets an assistant organize footage in one bin while the editor works on a timeline in another!
Add generators, transitions and filter effects to your clips!
With plug-ins, the possibilities are endless! You can add 3rd party OpenFX transition and generator plug-ins, or you can use the built in ResolveFX plug-ins found in DaVinci Resolve Studio. That means you can add filter effects such as mosaic, blurs, lens flares, film grain and more to create stunning and unique looking images!
Retime clips with constant or variable speed changes for incredible effects!
Quickly create constant or variable speed changes with dramatic ramping curves for truly dynamic effects. You get separate curves for both frame position and playback speed that allow any frame to be moved to any point in time. Choose optical flow, frame blending or nearest frame rendering for the highest quality results!
Timeline Curve Editor
Keyframe animation and curve editor in the timeline!
DaVinci Resolve is the only NLE with a timeline based keyframe and curve editor. That means you can see your keyframe positions and curves directly under each clip in context with your program! Keyframes can be copied, pasted, moved in groups and edited as needed. Visual controls let you quickly select the keyframes you need to edit!
Visual Effects Compositing
Unlimited effects, powerful nodes and a true 3D workspace!
Fusion’s node based interface and true 3D workspace lets you composite images on top of each other to create sophisticated effects. Nodes are powerful because they can be connected together in a flow chart style, making it easy to see the entire composition and quickly make changes. Working with nodes in Fusion is much faster than hunting through stacks of confusing layers and filters!
Incredibly powerful keyers for green and blue screen removal
For seamless compositing you need to be able to remove blue, green or any other color backgrounds. Fusion features multiple keyers, including the all new Delta Keyer, which uses advanced image science and a complete set of matte finesse controls to give you the cleanest possible keys while preserving fine image detail.
Remove unwanted elements from any shot!
Fusion’s resolution independent paint tools feature flexible brush styles, blend modes and stroke shapes that can be modified at any time! Use the paint tool to quickly remove wires, rigs or other unwanted elements. Simply clone one area to another, smear an image with a brush stroke, or even paint entirely new elements!
Trace around and isolate moving objects!
Fusion’s bezier and B-spline tools let you quickly draw, track and animate custom shapes so you can isolate actors or objects from other elements in a shot. Planar tracking data can be used on shapes so you don’t have to manually animate motion, perspective, position, scale or rotation as the image changes!
Build fantastic particle effects that glow, swirl and sparkle!
With Fusion, you can turn any object into a particle and then use physics like avoidance, gravity and bounce to influence and alter the particles in natural ways. Particles can use 3D geometry, change color over their duration or even emit other particles! Best of all, particles work in 3D so they can swirl, surround and bounce off of other elements in your scene!
2D and 3D Titles
Complete professional typography controls for 2D and 3D text!
Create amazing animated titles with 2D and 3D text tools! You get traditional text formatting controls along with 3D extrusion, the ability to add reflections, bump maps, shadows and more. Use the follower tool to animate individual characters so they fly on and off, ripple glow effects through each letter, and more. The possibilities are endless!
Tracking and Stabilization
Built in planar, 3D and camera tracking!
To look realistic, objects have to move in perfect synchronization. Fusion can automatically track, match move and stabilize objects in your shots. Choose from the planar tracker, traditional 3D tracker, or the camera tracker which analyzes and matches the movement of the live action camera that was used to shoot the scene!
Spline Based Motion Graphics Animation
The world’s best spline based animation tools!
Serious motion graphics artists need powerful animation and keyframe tools. Fusion features an incredibly advanced curve editor that lets you create linear, bezier, and b-spline animation curves.

Truly Professional Tools
Everything you need to deliver incredible cinema sound!
DaVinci Resolve’s Fairlight audio page is a complete integrated digital audio workstation for Film and TV! You get a massive set of recording, editing, mixing, sweetening, finishing and mastering tools. With the Fairlight Audio Accelerator you get state of the art sub-millisecond super low latency. There simply is no other software with this level of dedicated audio power!
Create complex compositions and multiple delivery formats!
Each track corresponds to a channel strip on the mixer. You get real time 6 band parametric EQ, along with expander/gate, compressor and limiter dynamics on every single track. In addition, clip time warping lets you stretch or compress audio without shifting pitch. It works at the subframe level for absolutely perfect synchronization! The powerful busing structure has several main, sub, and aux buses so you can prepare multiple deliverable formats all at the same time!
Record automation for virtually any parameter, even plug-ins!
Comprehensive clip-aware automation includes touch, trim, slow-mo, preview and fill modes. In addition to automating traditional parameters such as pan, level and EQ, Fairlight audio lets you record changes in every single parameter during live playback! You can even automate changes in native and VST plug-in parameters over time!
Record voice overs,ADR, foley and more!
When it comes to recording, DaVinci Resolve’s Fairlight audio lets you produce multi layered recordings quickly and easily. Real time punch in lets you record at any moment during live playback and you get a complete set of sophisticated ADR tools for replacing dialog.
Fairlight Audio Accelerator
High performance low latency performance!
For the absolute best performance, add a Fairlight Audio Accelerator to your system! You’ll get blazing performance with amazing sub‑millisecond latency for hundreds of tracks with full real time processing of EQ, expander/gate, compressor and limiter dynamics, and up to 6 real time plug‑ins per channel!
Incredibly flexible monitoring lets you choose between multiple speaker sets!
The advanced Fairlight monitoring system handles buses up to 24 channels wide. Sources can be selected from internal buses or external inputs and sent out to 16 different sets of speakers! You also get customizable fold-up and fold-down when crossing between formats. For example, if you’re monitoring 5.1 on a pair of stereo speakers, it automatically folds down for output to 2 channels. For cinematic setups, you can add an optional B-Chain processor for installations with up to 64 speakers!
3D Audio Soundspace
Work with advanced spatial audio formats!
Fairlight audio features built in 3D audio support for working with spatial formats such as 5.1, 7.1 and even 22.2. You get a 3D panner to position sound in space, 3D B-chain processing and 3D Spaceview™ visualization which provides a clear view of each object’s location in space.
Fairlight Professional Consoles
Modular and upgradable desktop or free standing consoles!
Fairlight mixing consoles provide high quality controls for nearly every parameter and feature in the software. Unique user interfaces and fast to use buttons and controls allow quick mapping of the console keys into a configuration that is optimized for the task at hand, allowing you to work faster with Fairlight audio than any other tool in the world!
See all sources and bus outputs at a glance!
The Fairlight audio page in DaVinci Resolve provides extensive metering of all sources in your project. In addition to sources, you can also meter sub and aux bus outputs as well as view compound meters with phase and loudness.
Quickly get footage in and prepare it for editing!
DaVinci Resolve lets you preview, import and manage media on the Media Page. Files are never moved, they don’t need to be “ingested”, and they’re not stored in proprietary locations. Everything is left in place on your drives exactly where you put them. Simply drag and drop to the bins in your project’s media pool or directly onto a timeline.
Organize media your way or automatically based on metadata!
Easily create free form bins to organize footage any way you’d like. You can also use Smart Bins to automatically sort and display footage based on metadata criteria. Bins can be viewed in a customizable list view that now includes markers, or as icons that show in/out indicators. You can now also open multiple bins into separate windows!
Easily prepare clips for editing by marking, flagging and adding notes!
Quickly load and mark clips in the source viewer or directly in your project’s bins. Simply scrub over a clip icon and add your in/out points. A graphical overlay on the icon shows the marked portion of the clip! Markers and notes can now be viewed in list view and as overlays in the source monitor. You can even drag a duration marker segment from the bin to the timeline to edit in specific portions of a clip without having to create sub‑clips!
Instantly sync audio with video from multiple files!
Syncing audio and video is easy! Just select the audio and video clips and use the sync command. You can sync based on timecode or by audio waveforms. Best of all, you don’t have to render new media! Resolve manages it all for you, merging the audio, video and metadata from the files so you can start editing immediately!
Powerful metadata tools that make editing easier!
File metadata is automatically imported, plus you can enter your own custom keywords and tags. Footage can be sorted into smart bins based on keywords, type of camera, or any other metadata. You can even change display names for clips using scene, shot and take metadata. That means you’ll never have to rename media files again!
Quickly clone camera cards and mags with checksum verification!
It’s critically important to make backups of camera original media before recording over it! DaVinci Resolve features a powerful clone tool that makes bit for bit copies with checksum verification of media cards, SSDs and mags from cameras. For maximum protection, you can save multiple copies to different destinations at the same time!
Deliver anywhere from the web to digital cinema!
DaVinci Resolve lets you output timelines, parts of timelines and individual clips for mastering or sharing with other applications. Delivery presets make it fast to prep files for the web or other applications, and you can build your own from scratch. You can even create Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) for theatrical distribution or output to tape!
Batch process jobs or even offload rendering to another system!
You can quickly add multiple timelines or clips to the render queue for batch processing. Simply create each job, click the “Add to Render Queue” button and then start the batch. If you’re working on a network with DaVinci Resolve Studio, you can offload the render to another workstation so you can continue working on your system.
DaVinci Resolve is the only post production workflow solution that allows everyone to work together on the same project at the same time!
DaVinci Resolve is designed for collaboration from the ground up. Each artist gets a page with the dedicated tools and interfaces they need to get their specific job done. All of the work is tied together and managed by a powerful database, universal timeline and advanced image and sound processing engines. This makes it possible for editors, colorists, VFX artists, animators and sound engineers to work together simultaneously. With DaVinci Resolve, you no longer have to wait for the editor to lock picture before color, effects and sound work can begin. Best of all, you no longer have to deal with importing and exporting files, translating projects, losing work, or conforming and managing changes. DaVinci Resolve is the only application in the world that lets everyone work together in parallel on the same project at the same time!
One single software tool designed for collaboration!
DaVinci Resolve is the world’s first post production tool designed for true multi-user collaboration. Each user logs in and can work together on the same project. Multiple assistants can prep and sort footage, the editor can cut, visual effects artists can work on shots and colorists can grade. Sound editors can even start mixing a reel while the editor is cutting another scene!
Users can lock bins and timelines to protect their work!
Bin and timeline locking allow multiple assistants and editors to work together without overwriting each others’ work. One user can create bins for organizing footage, adding metadata, and creating string outs while another works in a different bin. The bins and timelines remain “read only” until they are unlocked by the user that’s working in them.
Instantly send messages to other members of the team!
The built in realtime chat feature allows users to communicate with each other inside of DaVinci Resolve. Editors can quickly message assistants with questions about footage, or ask them to unlock a bin. Colorists can check in with editors on particular shots, and sound editors can talk to the editor in realtime!
Revolutionary visual interface for comparing timelines!
When multiple people work on the same project you might ask an assistant to tighten up a cut or to finish a scene for you. When they’re done, you can use the new timeline compare tool to visually display where clips have been added, deleted, moved or trimmed. This makes it fast and easy to accept the new changes!
DaVinci Resolve Project Server
Elegant software for quickly setting up and managing multi user projects.
The new DaVinci Resolve Project Server software makes collaboration possible by managing the traffic and saving the changes from each user. This elegant software makes setting up a shared project database fast and easy. Once the software is set up on a dedicated system, users can log in and start working on their projects!
Use the storage of your choice!
DaVinci Resolve is the only post production solution that lets you use the storage of your choice for shared projects. You don’t need to buy expensive, proprietary storage or hire an entire IT department to use or manage it! Simply connect each user to your shared storage, setup the DaVinci Resolve Project Manager software and start working!
