NAB 2017 – Blackmagic Design Announces DaVinci Resolve 14 at only $299
Biggest news to me, is that the price is a startlingly low $299. At that point it is hard to argue against a purchase.
Blackmagic Design today announced DaVinci Resolve 14. New features include up to 10 times performance increase, Fairlight audio built into DaVinci Resolve, and multi user collaboration tools that let multiple people edit, color and mix audio from multiple systems, all in the same project at the same time.
The performance increase comes via better CPU & GPU optimizations with better threading. The UI is more responsive and they advertise editing 4K on a laptop as a possibility.
There are over 20 new FX filters that perform tasks such as dust removal, fixing of dead pixels, and more. Incorporating facial recognition tech that is being seen more and more in software, you can track facial features to easily isolate skin, eyes, and lips without roto work or selection.
A public beta of DaVinci Resolve 14 will be available today and for immediate download from the Blackmagic Design website.
See it at the Blackmagic Design NAB 2017 booth #SL216.
