Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Studio is a renowned advanced colour correction software and now also a full-fledged, non-linear editing system — it even allows to you to import projects from other NLEs, such as from Premiere Pro, as XML files. You can edit, colour correct, finish, and deliver all from one system. Moreover, Resolve is highly sophisticated and oriented at the same time toward the individual user, large collaborative teams, and the growing studio owner. It's completely scalable and resolution independent, so it can be used on set, in a small studio, or integrated into large production pipelines. Your order provides you with a USB dongle that lets you use the software on as many computers as you want by inserting the dongle into the one you want to use at the time.

Resolve is a node-based colour grading system — nodes being similar layers — where each node can have colour correction, isolated areas (power windows), and effects, and in which unlimited numbers of nodes can be joined together sequentially or in parallel. In all, you can combine grades, effects, mixers, keys, and plug-ins in any order to create limitless colour effects and unique looks. This is the core of Resolve's colour grading functionality, and there are hundreds of advanced features and capabilities in addition, such as grading from raw Files, automatic colour matching, and 3D tracking.

The editing functionality in Resolve is designed to handle TV dramas, commercials, multi-camera productions, and all other project types from the smallest to largest. The trimming tool is context sensitive, meaning that based on where you position the mouse cursor on the timeline, Resolve will automatically switch to the trimming function you need, so you can ripple, roll, slip, slide, or extend and shorten your footage without having to manually switch tools. As for collaborative support, Resolve allows multiple people to work together on the same timeline at the same time. This is a major time benefit when each user is assigned a specific task. As with the grading side, the editing side also has hundreds of other features and capabilities.

Resolve is scalable and supports multiple GPUs all working together. You can use multi-GPU systems such as the Mac Pro or build a dedicated Windows system with up to 3 GPUs. Resolve also features advanced media management tools designed for editorial and colour workflows. You can move, copy, consolidate, relink, and archive media, timelines, or entire projects. Resolve's clone tool will back up your valuable camera files on location so you can copy camera files to multiple destinations with checksum validation for safekeeping while you're still on set.

Resolve is also capable of editing metadata, syncing sound, and prepping footage for editing, grading, or visual effects. Resolve supports almost any format, and also includes powerful delivery options for versioning, finishing, and delivery at any resolution and format, so you can export for various destination types. Resolve works from your camera originals so your finished master is a first-generation graded copy of the original camera raw files. Additionally, exporting can take advantage of remote rendering, using another Resolve on the network to render the job.

All image processing is at 32-bit floating point and Resolve uses a unique YRGB colour space for grading. These two features combine to give you a dramatically wider colour correction range, and you'll be able to adjust the luminance gain of your video without rebalancing the colour of your whites, mids, or blacks.

Resolve was designed with the ability to integrate with dozens of other applications so that you can focus more on your project. Resolve can share sequences and round-trip projects with Final Cut Pro X, Media Composer, Premiere Pro, and other editing, audio, and VFX and motion graphics software. You can edit your project on any system, then link back to your full quality camera raw files using XML, AAF, or EDL and finish in greater bit depth with Resolve. You can also use AAF export to send a project to ProTools with discreet audio clips and a single layer video mix down for audio finishing. Get support for multiple GPUs, 4K output, motion blur effects, temporal and spatial noise reduction, 3D tools, remote and multi-user collaboration tools, and more with DaVinci Resolve Studio. For an even more enhanced workflow, you can incorporate the optional Resolve Advanced Panel, which is an award-winning control surface for more precise colour correction.
