All projects start with importing and organizing footage, and they all end with mastering and final output. DaVinci Resolve features powerful tools that are designed to let you get to work quickly and output files fast, so you’ll never miss a tight deadline. Its incredibly wide format support makes it compatible with virtually every modern file format and media type in the world, making it the ideal hub for your post production workflow!
DaVinci Resolve lets you preview, import and manage media on the Media Page. Files are never moved, they don’t need to be “ingested”, and they’re not stored in proprietary locations. Everything is left in place on your drives exactly where you put them. Simply drag and drop to the bins in your project’s media pool or directly onto a timeline.
Easily create free form bins to organize footage any way you’d like. You can also use Smart Bins to automatically sort and display footage based on metadata criteria. Bins can be viewed in a customizable list view that now includes markers, or as icons that show in/out indicators. You can now also open multiple bins into separate windows!
Quickly load and mark clips in the source viewer or directly in your project’s bins. Simply scrub over a clip icon and add your in/out points. A graphical overlay on the icon shows the marked portion of the clip! Markers and notes can now be viewed in list view and as overlays in the source monitor. You can even drag a marker from the bin to the timeline to edit in specific portions of a clip without having to create sub‑clips!
Syncing audio and video is easy! Just select the audio and video clips and use the sync command. You can sync based on timecode or by audio waveforms. Best of all, you don’t have to render new media! Resolve manages it all for you, merging the audio, video and metadata from the files so you can start editing immediately!
It’s critically important to make backups of camera original media before recording over it! DaVinci Resolve features a powerful clone tool that makes bit for bit copies with checksum verification of media cards, SSDs and mags from cameras. For maximum protection, you can save multiple copies to different destinations at the same time!
DaVinci Resolve lets you output timelines, parts of timelines and individual clips for mastering or sharing with other applications. Delivery presets make it fast to prep files for the web or other applications, and you can build your own from scratch. You can even create Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) for theatrical distribution or output to tape!
You can quickly add multiple timelines or clips to the render queue for batch processing. Simply create each job, click the “Add to Render Queue” button and then start the batch. If you’re working on a network with DaVinci Resolve Studio, you can offload the render to another workstation so you can continue working on your system.
DaVinci Resolve is compatible with all major post production file types, formats and post production software. You get native compatibility with everything from ProRes and DNx to H.264, DPX, Cineon, EXR and more. It works with all popular camera formats such as CinemaDNG RAW, ARRI Alexa™ RAW, RED, Canon, Sony and other formats. You also get full compatibility for importing projects via XML, EDL, and AAF, along with delivery presets for exporting to popular applications such as Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Media Composer and ProTools.
