DaVinci Resolve 12 Beta Is Here – World’s ‘Most Advanced’ Non-Linear Video Editor
Today, however, we are happy to announce that version 12 has been released in beta (and I’m currently downloading it)!
In addition to adding non-linear editing capabilities to its already strong color grading platform, Resolve 12 includes a bunch other new and exciting features:
- The new layout is optimized for high resolution displays
- Smart bins automatically organize video clips according to meta data tags
- Shot match feature allows you to quickly and easily match and color shots
- Add favorites folders to quicker access to files
- Multi-cam editing lets you combine and sync shots of the same scene from different angles
- Mix audio in real time
- Asymmetric and dynamic trimming
- Drag-and-drop functionality for importing video and graphics
- On-screen controls and motion paths make adding animations a piece of cake
- Easily create your own custom cinematic transitions
- Simple-to-use enhanced 3D tracking
- New 3D keying for green screen compositing
With the new list of tools and features, it’s not hard to see why Blackmagic calls their newest version of the software the “most advanced non-linear editing and color grading system.”
And, did we mention that DaVinci offers a free version as well? The free version of the program includes all of the important features while requiring an upgrade to the paid version only for “4K output, motion blur effects, temporal and spatial noise reduction, 3D tools, remote and multi user collaboration tools.”
So, head on over and download the latest version today!
