NAB Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 9 has an updated user interface
and a workflow optimized for speed.
|Over the last few years Blackmagic Design has added tools such as automatic 3D eye matching, multi-layer timelines, XML support and more camera and file type support. This update now changes the workflow in order to access the new functions more quickly. The user interface has been designed to avoid unnecessary clicks and settings through a new project import, export and selection workflow, scrubbable media thumbnails to speed up shot selection, production metadata fields for entering on set shot notes and larger colour control palettes for faster access to grading tools.
There are new clear graphical palettes for control of power windows, keys, sizing, tracking and stabilization, camera raw and data burn ins. The Gallery now includes resizable stills displayed in user named albums and 48 ‘prebuilt looks’ for fast grade selection.
Other changes in DaVinci Resolve 9 include 'Log grading' in every corrector node, audio playback support up to 16 tracks per source clip and audio renders in both Quicktime and MXF, automatic 'Audio Sync', clip data burn ins and batch rendering for dailies, additional and faster automatic stereo 3D image alignment tool, plus new stereoscopic 3D floating windows and new 3D monitoring options.
The changes are intended to let customers focus on their creative work and not struggle with the set of functions, and to make it quicker to learn, as many of the user interface elements are common to other software.
DaVinci Resolve 9 will be available in July 2012 as a free update for all Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve customers. www.blackmagic-design.com The Australian distributor of Blackmagic Design is New Magic. www.newmagic.com.au
