Today, Blackmagic Design announced an update to DaVinci Resolve which will add 3D capabilities to their successful color correction suite, as well as editing features that include multi-camera alignment, preview, enhanced convergence adjustments and the ability to reuse footage with a simple copy and paste. And there’s a ton more.
We are really excited to be adding even more advanced editing features so quickly after the release of DaVinci Resolve 10” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “Resolve 10 has been a massive update with over 50 new features including temporal processing, Open FX Plug-ins and powerful onset tools. The additional editing tools we are releasing today give customers more precise control over their projects from within the DaVinci Resolve timeline and improves integration with popular editing and visual effects software so that customers get the best workflow possible.”
Version 10.1 of Davinci Resolve offers new and improved editing features, including enhanced 3D stereoscopic tools, such as full stereoscopic multi-track editing timeline, enhanced convergence adjustments and automatic alignment. There’s also the ability to trim frame based clips like DNG & DPZ so that work flows and file transfers continue to be more streamlined and efficient. There’s also Rich Text Title Support that gives editors even greater control over font and text and allows them to manipulate the title’s individual character size, position and color directly from the editing page.
Blackmagic has also enhanced XML importing for both Final Cut Pro X 10.1 and FCP 7 users, and the compound clips that editors find they are using in X.1 are now split into individual clips with separate A/V elements. FCP 7 assets can be imported with XMLs that include font properties, timeline markers, and sizing, cropping and composition data. Users will also find that shot re-framing adjustment metadata translates more efficiently, enabling those changes to populate the Resolve timeline more accurately.
As usual, the update is available as a free download to users with a full software license of DaVinci Resolve.
Blackmagic Design Announces DaVinci Resolve 10.1
Fremont, CA, USA – January 17, 2014 – Blackmagic Design today announced the release of DaVinci Resolve 10.1 software which adds new editing and 3D stereoscopic features as well as support for Final Cut Pro™ X 10.1. DaVinci Resolve 10.1 is available now for download free of charge for all existing DaVinci Resolve customers from the Blackmagic Design website.
The new DaVinci Resolve 10.1 update adds innovative editing features that includes allowing users to preview and align multiple camera takes while editing, so they can quickly switch between takes to show their clients shot options live from the timeline. Editors can now copy individual clips in the editing timeline with a simple drag and drop, making it easier to use the same footage in different parts of the edit.
The enhanced editing tools also include support for trimming frame based clips such as DNG and DPX that reduces time in transferring clips for even faster workflows, as well as Rich Text title support which allows every character’s size, position and color to be adjusted individually directly from the Edit page.
Also featured in DaVinci Resolve 10.1 are XML import enhancements for both FCP X 10.1 and FCP 7 customers. Compound clips from FCP X 10.1 with separate A/V elements are now split into individual clips and imported FCP 7 XML’s include font properties and timeline markers as well as being able to bring across sizing, cropping and composition parameters. Now shot reframing adjustments made during Final Cut Pro editing will translate even more accurately into the DaVinci Resolve timeline.
Customers with the full software license of DaVinci Resolve will get enhanced 3D stereoscopic tools including a full stereoscopic multi track editing timeline, enhanced convergence adjustments and automatic alignment.

About DaVinci Resolve
Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve is the world’s highest performance on set, editing and color correction solution for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux computers. DaVinci Resolve supports more real time color correction than any other system because it’s not limited by the performance of the computer it’s running on. DaVinci Resolve eliminates this performance barrier because it’s based on a cluster of high performance GPU cards, so all processing is always real time. DaVinci Resolve has the power of a true real time performance solution so handles complex color grades even when using dozens of primaries, secondaries, Power Windows™, multi point tracking, blurs, and more. DaVinci Resolve provides incredible performance in a low cost solution which can be easily upgraded by adding extra GPUs for supercomputer power to handle 4K resolutions, stereoscopic 3D and real time grading direct from raw camera files such as ARRI RAW, RED RAW and Sony RAW files which can be handled with ease.
