WHY DAVINCI RESOLVE 16 is a GAMECHANGER.
“The revolution in editing starts at 9 AM PDT
on April 8th, 2019”
and it’s aiming for the impaired NLE capabilities of
Blackmagic has revolutionized the post-production process.
Davinci Resolve has long been the go-to tool for Color Correction, one of many steps involved in finishing a video/film.
Davinci Resolve offers the world class Color Correction we have come to trust,
But now, Davinci Resolve 16 adds much more power.
So much so that it may intimidate most video or sound editors.
Because it deals with post-production as an all encompassing effort,
Not just one stage of that effort.
Video Editing, Audio Editing (& ADR recording), Color Correction, Video Effects (including Motion Tracking and 3D FX) and strong audio plugin effects, as well as the ability to Final Mix.
It is a tool that opens fast and does not hog your RAM.
Blackmagic is how smart people program and Davinci Resolve 16 is how smart people can create AND FINISH.
When I wrote this, Davinci Resolve 16 had just been released - a powerful tool, but with some obvious audio limitations, which is to be expected as the entire audio section is new.
Still for me, as someone highly familiar with Pro Tools and Logic, it is an easy interface and the whole package actually allowed me to resolve my complex feature project by forcing me to make final choices and giving me all the source media (audio and video) I needed. While I had exported an XML of my final cut timeline into Davinci, I never needed to switch computer, so had tens of terabytes of media on hand and fully accessible - including all the films audio (source media and stems) and video media, my sound effects library and whatever I created or might create in Logic Audio.
Revolutionary. And it is free.
