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!
Edit – The world’s fastest and most advanced professional NLE.
The edit page is the world’s most advanced professional non-linear editor. The familiar track layout, dual monitor design, and traditional workflow make it easy for new users to learn while still being powerful enough for professional editors. It’s perfect for larger projects such as feature films, television shows, streaming, commercials, documentaries, and more. The edit page features drag-and-drop editing, context-sensitive automatic trimming tools, fully customizable keyboard shortcuts so you can work faster, and a library full of hundreds of titles, transitions, and effects that you can add and animate. You also get complete media management, organization, and timeline management tools.
Cut – Designed for editors to turn around work fast!
The cut page is perfect for projects with tight deadlines that you have to turn around quickly. It’s also great for documentary work. The cut page has a streamlined interface that’s fast to learn for new users and designed for speed. Features such as source tape, dual timelines, fast review, and smart editing tools help you work faster than ever. The sync bin and source overwrite tools are the fastest way to edit Multicam programs, making it easy to create perfectly synchronized cutaways! Everything on the cut page is action based so every click does something. That means you’ll spend more time editing and less time hunting for commands. Plus, the scalable interface is great for portable editing!
Color – Hollywood’s favorite color corrector!
The DaVinci Resolve color page is Hollywood’s most advanced color corrector and has been used to color and finish more high-end feature films and television shows than any other system! It’s also approachable with exciting new features designed to make it easier for new users to get great results while they continue to learn the advanced tools. For example, new primary control sliders will be familiar to anyone that’s used image editing software, making it easy to adjust contrast, temperature, mid-tone detail, saturation, and more. The color page has an incredible range of primary and secondary color grading features including PowerWindows™, qualifiers, tracking, advanced HDR grading tools, and more!
Fusion – Cinematic quality visual effects and motion graphics!
The Fusion page lets you create cinematic visual effects and broadcast-quality motion graphics right inside DaVinci Resolve! Fusion features a node-based workflow that makes it faster and easier to create sophisticated effects and animations than you could ever create using a layer-based approach. You get hundreds of 2D and 3D tools for visual effects and motion graphics, along with advanced animation curves and keyframe editors that allow you to create incredibly organic and realistic animations. Fusion has everything from the point, planar and 3D camera tracking to rotoscope and keying tools for creating photorealistic composites, stunning animated titles, 3D particle systems, and more!
Fairlight – Professional tools designed for audio post-production.
The Fairlight page features hundreds of pro tools for audio post-production. It’s like having a professional digital audio workstation (DAW) built into your editing and color system! Familiar keyboard-based editing tools let you work extremely fast, especially if you’re moving to Fairlight from another system. The incredible new Fairlight Audio Core lets you work with up to 2,000 tracks at a time with real-time effects, EQ, and dynamics processing! You get sample-accurate editing tools, advanced ADR and Foley, and Fairlight FX such as reverb, de-esser, hum remover, and more. You can mix and master stereo, 5.1, 7.1, and even the latest immersive 3D audio formats, all within the same project!
Media and Delivery – Incredibly wide format support, finishing and mastering!
The media and delivery pages have everything you need to import, manage and deliver final projects. While you can import and organize footage into bins on both the cut and edit pages, the media page gives you a dedicated full screen workspace so you can focus on preparing footage, syncing clips, organizing footage into bins and adding metadata before you start editing. The media page also lets you clone camera media cards for backup purposes. The quick export tool lets you output and upload files to YouTube, Vimeo and Twitter from anywhere in the software, but the deliver page gives you total control over all encoding options and formats, along with a render queue for exporting multiple jobs!
