Finish and deliver to
virtually any format!

Whether you’re creating a master for TV release, a digital cinema package for theatrical distribution or finishing for delivery over the internet, DaVinci Resolve includes powerful delivery options for versioning, finishing and delivery at any resolution. You can export your media in a variety of formats with optional burn-ins, output EXR or DPX files for visual effects work and uncompressed 10 bit or ProRes files for editing in applications like Final Cut Pro X. Exporting can take advantage of remote rendering, using another Resolve on the network to render the job. DaVinci Resolve works from your camera originals so you always get the highest quality output. That means your finished master is a first generation graded copy of the original camera RAW files!

Unique YRGB 32 bit
float processing.

DaVinci’s high quality image processing is so revolutionary it won an Emmy™ award for contributions to the television industry! All image processing is at the deepest 32 bit floating point and DaVinci Resolve uses a unique YRGB color space for grading. This allows you to adjust the luminance gain of your video without rebalancing the color of your whites, mids, or blacks. That means you won’t have to chase the correction you’re aiming for! 32 bit processing combined with YRGB color science gives you a dramatically wider color correction range, so you can generate looks that other systems simply cannot match!

Now you have a complete end to end color managed pipeline that can use DaVinci Resolve’s own color management or ACES 1.0 (Academy Color Encoding Specification) for high end digital cinema workflows.
