Blackmagic Design has released DaVinci Resolve 14, a comprehensive update that has been designed to be more than an incremental software update. Blackmagic Design believes the new DaVinci Resolve will break through the stagnant toolsets used in post-production, and offer a new path forward for any facility.

New features include up to 10 times performance improvement, a whole new audio post production suite with Fairlight audio built into DaVinci Resolve, and multi user collaboration tools that let multiple people edit, color, and mix audio from multiple systems, all in the same project at the same time.

What this means is that DaVinci Resolve 14 is like three high-end applications in one. Customers get professional editing, color correction, and the new Fairlight audio tools. All it takes is a single click to switch between editing, color, and audio. Then the new multi user collaboration tools let everyone work on the same project at the same time, so customers no longer have to import, export, translate, or conform projects.

DaVinci Resolve 14 changes post production from a linear to a parallel workflow, so everyone can work at the same time, giving editors, colorists, and audio engineers more time to be creative.

Blackmagic Design also announced a price reduction for DaVinci Resolve Studio from $995 to only $299. It costs less than most annual cloud based subscription plans, making DaVinci Resolve more affordable to more customers.

The free version of DaVinci Resolve is also available with the same new editing and audio post production features. The $299 DaVinci Resolve 14 Studio version adds the new collaborative multi user tools, over 20 new Resolve FX including the advanced face enhancement tools, 4K and 120fps project support, stereoscopic 3D, optical quality blur and mist effects, film grain, de-noise tools and much more. Best of all, DaVinci Resolve 14 Studio does not require a connection to the internet or a cloud subscription to work.

In addition, Blackmagic Design has also announced a new worldwide training and certification program, along with certified curriculum for DaVinci Resolve. Customers can learn at their own pace by purchasing the Blackmagic Design series of books, or they can take training courses online or in person at certified training centers. More details are available on the DaVinci Resolve website.

DaVinci Resolve 14 runs on all major platforms, including Mac, Windows and Linux, making it easy to integrate with existing systems and workflows. Customers running Red Hat or CentOS Linux can even build their own workstations using low cost motherboards, extremely fast processors, massive amounts of RAM and up to 8 GPUs for incredible real time performance.
