Blackmagic Design Releases DaVinci Resolve 9 Public Beta for Mac, Linux & Windows

Today, Blackmagic Design announced the release of DaVinci Resolve 9 public beta.  This is the same version that Blackmagic will be releasing with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.  


Updates to the software include:

- Upgraded user interface, including automatic 3D eye matching, multi layering timelines, XML support plus more camera and file type support. 

According to Blackmagic CEO Grant Petty, "This is a major rewrite of the DaVinci Resolve software, and the workflow speed we can now achieve for the whole color correction process is simply stunning.”  “DaVinci Resolve has always dominated high end feature film markets, and with this new user interface it will be one of the world’s best looking user experiences. Now customers can focus on their creative work rather than struggling with cumbersome software feature sets.  DaVinci Resolve 9 will be great for new users, as it includes user interface elements that are common to other video software. Now it is fast, simple but still just as powerful. Our customers will love it.”

DaVinci Resolve 9 public beta for Mac,  Windows and Linux is now available for download from the Blackmagic Design website free of charge for all existing full feature DaVinci Resolve customers. DaVinci Resolve Lite public beta is available for both Mac OS X and Windows and is free to all users.

New Blackmagic Cinema Camera footage released!

John Brawley  has recently released new footage of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.  Footage looks very promising.  Interestingly, it was shot on Apple ProRess (HQ) and not RAW, yet the dynamic range is still amazing. 

Stay tuned for details.  I preordered my camera several months ago and it should be delivered in a matter of days.

God, I'm such a tech nerd.
