What's New in DaVinci Resolve 17
DaVinci Resolve 17 features new image processing for the latest wide gamut HDR, a powerful audio engine, immersive 3D audio workflows and more! Colorists get new HDR grading tools, AI based magic mask and more. Fairlight upgrades mouse and keyboard based edit selection tools along with Fairlight audio core, a high performance audio engine that supports 2,000 tracks on a single system! Editors get a new metadata based "slate" view with bin dividers to organize and find footage faster, zoomed waveforms for audio editing, smart reframing, proxies, live effect previews and more. In addition, effects, titles or transitions created on the Fusion page can be used on the edit and cut pages!
All In One Solution for Post Production
DaVinci Resolve is divided into "pages," each of which gives you a dedicated workspace and tools for a specific task. Editing is done on the cut and edit pages, visual effects and motion graphics on the Fusion page, color correction on the color page, audio on the Fairlight page, and media organization and output on the media and deliver pages. All it takes is a single click to switch between tasks!
DaVinci Resolve Studio
DaVinci Resolve Studio supports up to 120 fps at a massive 32K resolution, as well as support for multiple GPUs for real time playback of professional 10‑bit formats, and accelerated H.264 and H.265 hardware decoding and encoding. There’s a full suite of immersive audio tools including Dolby Vision and HDR10+ grading and rendering, the DaVinci Neural Engine and 30 extra Resolve FX. You get temporal and spatial noise reduction, motion effects, lens distortion correction, de-interlacing, workflow and media asset management integration, remote scripting API, remote and networked color grading, plus rendering and encoder plug‑in support. Plus there’s full screen playback on a second monitor!
More GPU Acceleration
DaVinci Resolve Studio lets you turbo charge the performance of your system with support for multiple GPUs! Whether you’re using Metal on a Mac, or OpenCL and CUDA on Windows and Linux, you’ll get incredible performance gains with additional GPUs.
After Noise Reduction
Advanced Noise Reduction
DaVinci Resolve Studio includes some of the most sophisticated noise reduction tools in the world. Temporal and spatial noise reduction tools can be used independently or together to help clean up and remove unwanted noise in virtually any image.
DaVinci Resolve Studio includes a lens correction feature that allows you to analyze a clip and correct for spherical lens distortion or other aberrations. It uses advanced image analysis and processing algorithms for incredibly high quality results!
Professional HDR Scopes
The HDR scopes in DaVinci Resolve Studio are capable of measuring and providing detailed information about ST.2084 and HLG images. This allows you to replace the 10‑bit scale of the scopes with a scale based on nit values, or cd/m2, instead.
DaVinci Resolve Studio features a complete set of tools for editing and grading stereoscopic 3D projects. You have total control over stereo specific clip properties such as convergence, floating windows, eye alignment, mastering and output.
Remote grading lets colorists work interactively with clients across the globe. It allows two matching DaVinci Resolve systems to be synchronized via an internet connection so that changes made on one system are immediately visible on the other.
DaVinci ColorspaceTransform Language
Unlike LUTs, which rely on simple lookup tables, DaVinci color transformation scripts are GPU accelerated bits of code that directly transform images using combinations of math functions. That makes them extremely fast and non destructive.
Scripting and Automation
DaVinci Resolve Studio features support for both Python and LUA scripting, along with developer APIs that allow you to add workflow integrations and custom encoding options. This lets studios of all sizes create deeply integrated custom workflows.
Workflow Integration Plug‑ins
More Resolve FX
DaVinci Resolve Studio includes over 30 additional GPU and CPU accelerated Resolve FX! These include effects for adding lens flares and reflections, analog damage, sharpening and more. There are face and beauty tools for re-touching, along with image restoration tools for dirt removal, dust busting and de-flickering. The film grain tool features customizable presets for adding photorealistic grain to match virtually any film stock! Patch replacer lets you clone and paint out spots, and the object removal plug‑in can be used to remove entire objects from a scene! Feature film quality effect plug‑ins can cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars, making DaVinci Resolve Studio incredibly affordable!
DaVinci Neural Engine
The DaVinci Neural Engine uses state of the art deep neural networks and machine learning, to power many of the features found exclusively in DaVinci Resolve Studio. This includes facial recognition for automatically organizing media into bins based on the people in a shot, super scale high quality image uprezzing so you can create 4K and 8K images from HD sources, and speed warp retiming for crystal clear, smooth speed changes. You also get incredibly high quality de-interlacing, magic mask for object isolation and tracking, smart reframe, object removal, scene cut detection and much more! The DaVinci Neural Engine provides simple tools to solve complex, repetitive and time consuming problems!
Immersive audio formats use multiple channels of audio to position sound around an audience, adding a specially creative dimension to sound design. DaVinci Resolve Studio supports high resolution 3D audio for working with spatial formats all the way up to 22.2, and features import and export of the latest IAB and ADM files. Object based formats, which define a virtual soundstage on which you can actually position tracks in 3D space are also supported. You get native Dolby Atmos and MPEG‑H import and rendering as well as Auro‑3D and SMPTE ST.2098 support. There is B‑chain audio monitoring, a 3D panner and 3D Spaceview™ to visualize each sound object’s location in space.
Dolby Atmos™ Mastering
Fully integrated support for ground up creation of immersive 3D audio production, with 3D channels and buses from 5.1.2 to 9.1.6, remote RMU and DAMS and local Dolby Atmos Production Suite with AudioBridge.
Re-mixing External Productions
Dolby Atmos master production import from immersive .damf, .wav, .mxf files with support to decompose into original elements such as sources, buses and VCA groups. Export to Atmos Master ADMBWF, or IMF _AIB.
IMF Audio Deliverables
Support for adding audio to video via IMF containers with multiple simultaneous audio deliverables as IAB-MXF or .wav. Deliver selection is from timeline via a bus or track, or an existing file IAB file.
Expanded Format Support
In addition to all of the 8‑bit formats supported by the free version, DaVinci Resolve Studio lets you work with most professional formats. You also get support for advanced AVCHD, AVC-Intra and popular H.264 camera formats that use "all-I" intraframe encoding, and also 10‑bit encoding. For round trip workflows and output or delivery, DaVinci Resolve Studio adds support for IMF encoding and decoding, advanced HDR delivery in Dolby Vision and HDR10+ formats, digital cinema packages, or DCP, for theatrical distribution and more!
Dolby Vision support includes a GPU accelerated version of the Dolby Vision CMU, content mapping unit, and free Dolby Vision grading controls. Access to advanced trim controls require a separate Dolby license.
Native IMFEncoding and Decoding
Create SMPTE ST.2067 compliant Interoperable Master Format (IMF) files for tapeless delivery to networks and distributors using Kakadu or Easy DCP. There are presets for generic, 20th Century Fox and Netflix.
DCP Encoding and Decoding
Native support for unencrypted DCP files lets you output and import unencoded DCP files for testing and validating playback of digital cinema packages. Support for encrypted DCP requires a separate Easy DCP license.
Encoder Plug‑in Support
Add additional and optimized rendering formats with 3rd party file format packs including XDCAM, XAVC, P2 AVC Ultra, P2 AVC Intra, HEVC/H.265 Main and Main 10 profiles, and even AS-11 compliant packaging.
