AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS –
Blackmagic Design has released DaVinci Resolve 11.1, a major new update based on customer feedback that includes dozens of features and improvements.
DaVinci Resolve 11.1 will be demonstrated on the Blackmagic Design IBC 2014 booth in Hall 7, Stand H20.
Editing enhancements in the new DaVinci Resolve 11.1 are designed to help editors work even faster than before. Resolve 11.1 includes improved asymmetric trimming, a new Swap Edit command, the ability to trim gaps in the timeline, editable in/out points in the source viewer, graphical fade sliders for video opacity, action and title safe overlays, independent track heights, a full screen timeline option, the ability to add transitions to multiple clips at the same time, and more.
DaVinci Resolve 11.1 also features improved integration with Final Cut Pro X that allows colorists to spend more time grading and finishing projects, and less time recreating elements from editorial. There is improved support for Multicam clips, Synchronized clips, and mixed frame rate Compound clips. Speed changes with Bezier curves are now imported from Final Cut Pro X, along with settings for frame blending and optical flow retiming. In addition, Compound clips can be broken apart and renamed in the Resolve timeline.
Colorists get support for object tracking and stabilization of compound clips, second layer input support for OpenFX plugins, the ability to pick colors in the viewer for OFX plugins, and new group menu options to load, delete and rename groups. DaVinci Resolve 11.1 also includes support for visually lossless compressed DNG RAW clips, Panasonic Varicam vRAW and AVC-I, improved color decoding for Phantom CINE RAW files, new Phantom Cine Log gamma selection in the camera raw settings, VFX I/O LUTs for Gamma 2.2 and Gamma 2.4, and more. Linux customers also get OpenCL support for AMD GPUs.
DaVinci Resolve 11.1 adds new support for Dolby Vision image processing. Customers will be able to work with 40x more brightness than a conventional television, a vastly improved, fuller color palette, and up to 1,000 times more contrast to reveal depth and detail that makes images look astonishingly real.
DaVinci Resolve 11.1 is available now as a public beta from the Blackmagic Design web site and will ship as a free update for all current DaVinci Resolve customers by the end of September 2014.
