DaVinci Resolve’s delivery page has been completely redesigned, making it easier to use so you can output files to your clients more quickly and efficiently. Use it to output files for other systems in your pipeline or for delivering final masters for broadcast. You can even round trip with other NLEs, create EXR or DPX image sequences for visual effects artists, or make QuickTime movies with watermark burn-ins for review and approval! DaVinci Resolve lets you master video to tape, create files for playback over the internet, or even author DCP digital cinema package files for theatrical distribution!


Faster Delivery

With DaVinci Resolve 12.5 you can now quickly select output presets that configure all of your video, audio and file output settings in a single click! There are built-in presets for exporting files to services such as YouTube, Vimeo and more. It's also easier to create your own presets with settings now organized under logical video, audio, and file tabs. There are intuitive new controls to select the range for output, editable render job names, and new icons that show local and remote render jobs!


Creating Files for Editorial

If you’re collaborating with other video editors using Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer or Premiere Pro CC you need to create files for them to use. You can use DaVinci Resolve to debayer camera RAW images and export ProRes or DNxHD files to editorial. Once a sequence is created, the editor can send an XML or AAF file back to DaVinci Resolve, every time the cut changes. DaVinci Resolve tracks the relationship between the editorial files and the camera original RAW masters and instantly conforms the cut back to the highest resolution files available. That means you can edit and grade at the same time, round trip files with editorial and never lose any grading work!


Creating Files for Visual Effects

You can export EXR or DPX image sequences for visual effects work. VFX shots on large projects are usually being worked on right up to the last minute, as the work in progress sequences come back, you can create a folder for each days VFX that can be automatically linked to the DaVinci Resolve timeline. That means you’ll always have an up to date conform with the most recent VFX plates in place.


Delivering Master Output Files

When your project is finished you can choose to output the program as it appears on the DaVinci Resolve timeline, or you can output individual graded source clips. That means you can export a high quality graded program or individual clips sequentially by reel name and source timecode. DaVinci Resolve can conform projects using the original RAW footage, that means your final output is a first generation graded copy of the camera original files!


Digital Cinema Package Files

DaVinci Resolve gives you the only way to go from native camera RAW files all the way to the silver screen in a single generation! Creating a Digital Cinema Package requires a license of EasyDCP that when entered into DaVinci Resolve opens an extended set of DCP authoring features to generate a formal DCP for theatrical distribution. It’s like going straight from your digital negative to a digital print on the big screen! Only DaVinci Resolve lets you finish your project with first generation quality on everything, regardless of your final delivery format!


Delivering Files for the Web

If you need to create files for the web, you can export a huge range of compressed Quicktime formats including H.264 directly from the delivery page. You can even author multiple files simultaneously from the same timeline at different sizes and resolutions for custom delivery formats. Files exported from DaVinci Resolve can be used as the final delivery master or recompressed by internet streaming software for web delivery.


Render Queue

Clients often ask for multiple versions of a finished project. From full quality masters to low res preview copies, DaVinci Resolve can handle it all! You can easily create queues for outputting jobs at a variety of sizes and in dozens of different formats. With DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio, you can now name each job and easily see whether they're being rendered locally or on a remote system. As jobs are completed the next one is automatically started, so you don’t have to manually start each one! You can even use remote rendering with a headless version of DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio running on another system to export the files in the Queue while you continue working!

Master to Tape

DaVinci Resolve can be used to control professional broadcast decks, like HDCAM-SR, so you can record your finished video master to tape. Using a Blackmagic DeckLink card or UltraStudio Thunderbolt capture and playback solution, you can connect to professional decks using standard RS-422 remote connections for complete deck control and SDI for audio and video. DaVinci Resolve’s deck control makes frame accurate play out to tape quick and easy!
