  • The minimum system requirements for Mac are now 10.12 Sierra - has anybody tried it with 10.11 El Capitan?

    @Psyco at a very first superficial glance, seems to be working, needs database upgrade or just a new one... like always it will overwrite previous DR installs!!

    image

  • @maxr Thanks a lot - I really don't want to upgrade to Sierra and didn't want to ruin my Resolve install.

    I really hope BMD keeps supports for 10.11 - otherwise a lot of Mac-users will be kicked out.

  • @Psyco you're welcome. Regarding the OS, same case here... for the life of me I cannot recall my machine being so stable and hickup free (and I tweak and {inject} experiment a lot) -- and the few annoyances that pop up once in a while are easily fixed (quite well documented also), like grandpa's cough, a glass of schnapps and he's good to go for another 100 hours -- probably since previous computer and snow leopard, which I kept running till Yosemite =)

  • @maxr Haha, my little Macbook Air is still running 10.6.8 - most stable and fastest OSX ever. But I had to upgrade my Mac Pro to 10.11 because of graphics card drivers....and Resolve.

  • Will be very interesting to see what Blackmagic do with Linux support. Flatpak possibly? Supporting system audio (without having to purchase a Decklink- which makes laptop use impossible).

  • Useful videos about Resolve 15

  • Resolve 15 BETA: still fine with OSX 10.11 El Capitan, Studio version still working with V12 dongle :-)

    But be aware of total crashes (without even crash dialog), especially on the new Fusion page - full integration of Fusion will take some time.

  • PR

    AB 2018, Las Vegas, USA - April 9, 2018 - Blackmagic Design today announced DaVinci Resolve 15, a massive update that fully integrates visual effects and motion graphics, making it the world's first solution to combine professional offline and online editing, color correction, audio post production, multi user collaboration and now visual effects together in one software tool. DaVinci Resolve 15 adds an entirely new Fusion page with over 250 tools for compositing, paint, particles, animated titles and more. In addition, DaVinci Resolve 15 includes a major update to Fairlight audio, along with over 100 new features and improvements that professional editors and colorists have asked for.

    A public beta of DaVinci Resolve 15 will be available today and for immediate download from the Blackmagic Design website. DaVinci Resolve 15 will also be demonstrated on the Blackmagic Design NAB 2018 booth at #SL216.

    image

    DaVinci Resolve 15 continues to revolutionize post production by combining 4 extremely high end applications as different pages in one single piece of software. The edit page has all of the tools professional editors need for both offline and online editing, the color page features the world's most advanced color correction tools, the Fairlight audio page is designed specifically for audio post production, and the new Fusion page gives visual effects and motion graphics artists everything they need to create feature film quality effects and animations. All it takes is a single click to instantly move between editing, color, effects and audio.

    This gives individual users unlimited creative flexibility because they can learn and explore different toolsets. It also enables collaboration so people with different talents can work together on the same project at the same time. The DaVinci Resolve 15 collaborative workflow dramatically speeds up post production because customers no longer need to import, export or translate projects between different software applications, and work no longer needs to be conformed when changes are made. Everything is in the same software application.

    The free version of DaVinci Resolve 15 can be used for professional work and has more features than virtually every other paid application for post production. DaVinci Resolve 15 Studio, which adds multi user collaboration, 3D, VR, dozens of additional filters and effects, unlimited network rendering and other advanced features such as temporal and spatial noise reduction, is available to own for only US$299. There are no annual subscription fees or ongoing licensing costs. DaVinci Resolve 15 Studio costs less than all other cloud based software subscriptions and it does not require an internet connection once the software has been activated. That means customers don't have to worry about losing work in the middle of a job if there is no internet connection.

    "DaVinci Resolve 15 is a huge and exciting leap forward for post production because it's the world's first solution to combine editing, color, audio and now visual effects into a single software application," said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. "We've listened to the incredible feedback we get from customers and have worked really hard to innovate as quickly possible. DaVinci Resolve 15 gives customers unlimited creative power to do things they've never been able to do before. It's finally possible to bring teams of editors, colorists, sound engineers and VFX artists together so they can collaborate on the same project at the same time, all in the same software application!"

    DaVinci Resolve 15 Detailed Overview

    DaVinci Resolve 15 features an entirely new Fusion page for feature film quality visual effects and motion graphics animation. Fusion was previously only available as a stand alone application and is the world's most advanced visual effects and motion graphics software. It is now built into DaVinci Resolve 15. The new Fusion page gives customers a true 3D workspace with over 250 tools for compositing, vector paint, particles, keying, rotoscoping, text animation, tracking, stabilization and more. Adding Fusion to DaVinci Resolve has been a massive project that will be completed over the next 12-18 months. Customers can get started using Fusion today to complete nearly all of their visual effects and motion graphics work. The standalone version of Fusion will continue to be available for customers who need it.

    In addition to bringing Fusion into DaVinci Resolve 15, Blackmagic Design has also added support for Apple Metal, multiple GPUs and CUDA acceleration, making Fusion in DaVinci Resolve faster than ever. To add visual effects or motion graphics, customers simply select a clip in the timeline on the Edit page and then click on the Fusion page where they can use Fusion's dedicated node based interface, which is optimized for visual effects and motion graphics. Compositions created in the standalone version of Fusion can also be copied and pasted into DaVinci Resolve 15 projects.

    DaVinci Resolve 15 also features a huge update to the Fairlight audio page. The Fairlight page now has a complete ADR toolset, static and variable audio retiming with pitch correction, audio normalization, 3D panners, audio and video scrollers, a fixed playhead with scrolling timeline, shared sound libraries, support for legacy Fairlight projects, and built in cross platform plugins such as reverb, hum removal, vocal channel and de-esser. With DaVinci Resolve 15, customers no longer have to worry about audio plugins when moving between Mac, Windows and Linux because the FairlightFX plugins run natively on all three platforms.

    DaVinci Resolve is the fastest growing nonlinear video editor in the industry. It's also Hollywood's favorite color corrector. Blackmagic Design has listened carefully to feedback from professional colorists and editors. DaVinci Resolve 15 includes over a hundred new features and improvements that editors and colorists have asked for.

    Colorists get an entirely new LUT browser for quickly previewing and applying LUTs, along with new shared nodes that are linked so when one is changed they all change, multiple playheads for quickly referencing different shots in a program, over 5x performance improvement for stabilization, improved noise reduction, and new Super Scale HD to 8K up-rezzing. DaVinci Resolve 15 also expands HDR support with GPU accelerated Dolby Vision metadata analysis and native HDR 10+ grading controls. In addition, new ResolveFX let customers quickly patch blemishes or remove unwanted elements in a shot using smart fill technology. There are also new ResolveFX for dust and scratch removal, lens and aperture diffraction effects, and more.

    Professional editors will find new features in DaVinci Resolve 15 specifically designed to make cutting, trimming, organizing and working with large projects even better. DaVinci Resolve 15 has dramatically improved load times so that large projects with hundreds of timelines and thousands of clips now open instantly. New stacked timelines and timeline tabs let editors see multiple timelines at once so they can quickly cut, paste, copy and compare scenes between timelines. There are also new markers with on-screen annotations, subtitle and closed captioning tools, auto save with versioning, greatly improved keyboard customization tools, new 2D and 3D Fusion title templates, image stabilization on the Edit page, a floating timecode window, improved organization and metadata tools, Netflix render presets with IMF support and much more.

    For the ultimate high speed workflow, customers can add a DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel, DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel or a DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel. All controls are logically placed near natural hand positions and are made out of the highest quality materials. Smooth, high resolution weighted trackballs and precision engineered knobs and dials feature the perfect amount of resistance for accurately adjusting any setting. The DaVinci Resolve control panels give colorists and editors fluid, hands on control over multiple parameters at the same time, allowing them to create looks that are simply impossible with a standard mouse.

    In addition, Blackmagic Design also introduced new Fairlight audio consoles for audio post production that will be available later this year. The new Fairlight consoles are available in 2, 3 and 5 bay configurations. Prices for the new Fairlight control panels are approximately 80% less than the previously available panels with prices ranging from US$21,995 to US$48,995.

    Availability and Price

    The public beta of DaVinci Resolve 15 is available today as a free download from the Blackmagic Design website for all current DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Studio customers. DaVinci Resolve Studio is available for US$299 from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide.

    The Fairlight consoles will be available later this year and will be priced from US$21,995 for the Fairlight 2 Bay console. The Fairlight consoles will be available from Blackmagic Design Resellers worldwide.

  • Confirmed, Resolve 15 first version to support native Linux audio - without having to purchase Decklink Card. So it’s now useful on Linux laptops.

    One question that I do have though- is Davinci Fusion the full version? I am assuming it is as there has been no update to Fusion 9...

    Also does this by default mean that Davinci gets 360VR? Will be interesting to see how (or if) it can be integrated deeper, such as being able to publish parameter automation to the edit timeline of a Fusion clip?

  • So impressive. BM continually surprises and impresses me with their DR releases.

  • I'm gonna start a little series on Resolve 15 and, of course, I'll begin with Fusion:

    Fusion integrated


    Most of the fuss about the new version of Resolve is related to the integration of Fusion. BlackMagic (BM in short) bought that powerful, node-based compositing program a while ago and sold it separately. Many have been speculating if they might integrate it into Resolve like they did with Fairlight before. Until now there was only “Fusion Connect”, which was just sending a clip to Fusion, where you could do your compositing work. After rendering from Fusion it automatically replaced the clip in Resolve’s timeline. No big thing, quite similar to Adobe’s “Dynamic Linking”.

    Now it’s part of Resolve 15 with it’s own page in the GUI. While this may be a nice feature, it has it’s consequences. One of the smaller ones are two new nodes in Fusion, called “MediaIn” and “MediaOut”. They replace the former “Loader” and “Saver”, which brought media into Fusion and saved it after rendering. Fusion is script-based and you can find dozens or even hundred of scripts on the web to add to it, but you’ll need to change the names in such scripts if you need them for the integrated program. No big thing, you may say, just search and replace.

    Well, until now these two nodes don’t have the ability to set gamma and color space too for the incoming or outgoing media. You’ll need an extra node for such tasks. In most cases you’ll want to change the gamma to linear, since many operations in compositing look more convincing in a linear space, for highlights in particular. You need to take that into account when modifying scripts. But we are talking about an early public beta, BM may bring that functionality back into those two nodes.

    Another consequence of integration is fixed resolution. Fusion get’s it’s footage delivered from the edit page in the current timeline resolution, but what if you want to zoom, pan or stabilise some clips? You’ll need to up your timeline resolution, even if your final delivery is lower in resolution and you will need more computing power than before. BTW, Fusion loves RAM, be prepared to add some if you had only the minimum for Resolve until now. And, sorry, no sound in Fusion for the time being.

    If you just need some larger stills for backgrounds or such, you can still load external footage into Fusion and the media pool is accessible there too. But for those with demanding compositing jobs, where you normally work in higher than target resolution, it’s reassuring that BM has promised to keep the standalone version in it’s portfolio. BTW, if you own a Fusion dongle, it’ll run the final version of DR15 studio as well.

    Effects and color processing need a defined pipeline too, it goes like this: source media > clip attributes > timeline scaling > Fusion effects > edit plug-ins (like ResolveFX) > grading effects. Consequently, you can only grade the final result out of the Fusion page in the Color page. If you need individual corrections, there are quite good grading tools in Fusion’s nodes too. But you can force another treatment: if you make a compound clip and feed that into the Fusion page, whatever you do in Edit and Color is added to the clip before it comes into Fusion.

    Fusion is also bringing a few extra tools into the Edit page, for titles in particular. Resolve has always been criticised for it’s relatively weak title tools. The new Text+ tool is offering quite a bit more and better quality too. What’s left to be desired is a better organisation of long lists of typefaces and a preview of their look in the list. There are also a few animated 3D title effects in the Edit page now, which come from Fusion. Take them just as an example (some are quite cheesy) for what you can do on your own by building an effect in Fusion and making it a template.

    Starting your work in Fusion is not so difficult, you just park your playhead anywhere in the timeline and change to the Fusion page. The topmost clip under the playhead will get it’s MediaIn and MediaOut and they are connected. If you want to bring more clips for a composite in, just activate all of them and choose “New Fusion Clip” in the contextual menu. Well, this is not going to be a course on Fusion, but more than half of the manual that comes with the public beta is dedicated to teach you the basics. And then there are sites like steak underwater.com if you are beyond the first steps.

    Stay tuned and ask your questions – I'll decide which ones to answer, though ;-)

    The Text+ tool:

  • Fairlight


    The other program that Blackmagic bought a few years ago is the respected DAW Fairlight, which has been around forever (as far as digital technology goes). It has gained a pretty good reputation with audio engineers and musicians since even recent versions are still working with old control panels, other than what we have seen from ProTools. It got integrated in version 14 already, but it was still quite buggy there, nicknamed Failright. Now, even in the beta version of DR15, it has become quite a bit more stable (while Fusion is acting up now, such an integration is not an easy feat, after all).

    IMHO, the biggest improvement for filmmakers is ADR (Automated Dialog Replacement) in Fairlight. It has extensive features for cues to several actors and an easy interface for repeating, comparing and evaluating multiple takes. There is a waveform display while recording, and the new floating and freely scalable timecode window is helpful too, of course not only for this kind of work.

    There are considerable improvements to the GUI too, most elements now look like in Edit and a sync offset indicator has been added. You can see your video in the Fairlight page and the Media Pool is accessible directly for adding audio (audio has a waveform thumbnail now when not in list view). A fixed playhead mode, where audio and video scroll under the static playhead, got added. If you own a large library of sounds Fairlight can help you managing it directly from the program.

    While pitch correction may not be as perfect as in expensive high-end machines, it’s good enough for most movie work. Video or audio clips with variable speed effects applied to them can play either pitch‐corrected or non‐pitch‐corrected variable speed audio. However, clips that were manually linked together in the timeline using the Link Clips command won’t play audio properly if you create variable speed effects. May be a bug in the beta. However, there’s a quick fix, which is to drag manually linked clips from the timeline to the Media Pool to create a new source clip, and then drag that new source clip back to the timeline.

    For those who don’t want to dive deep into the Fairlight page, a few more features have found their way into the Edit page, like Normalize, and the audio engine from Fairlight is used for the Edit page too. The audio panel of Clip Attributes offers controls over the format (Mono, Stereo, 5.1, 7.1 or Adaptive) you’d like to configure the channels embedded within a particular clip.

    While Mac users at least had their AU Units (called AU Effects in Fairlight), everything else had to be added from third-parties. Now, even with the free version, you get FairlightFX, a specific audio plug‐in format that runs natively on all three platforms. Other than the new effects for video (I’ll get back to them) all thirteen audio plug‐ins are coming for free and can be used both in the Edit and the Fairlight page: Chorus, De-Esser, De-Hummer, Delay, Distortion (includes soft tube emulation in the output stage), Echo, Flanger, Modulation, Noise-Reduction (with noise fingerprint), Pitch, Reverb (with extensive controls like room size), Stereo Width and Vocal Channel. So, enjoy playing with them!

    And for those with bigger needs? Well there have been audio accelerator cards announced, even a price for them (a tad below 1k U$), but no further information. The same applies to professional consoles, they will come for U$ 20k up to mildly under 50k, but no details given yet.

    Only this (from the manual): “DR15 introduces support for VSTi instruments working with connected MIDI controllers to trigger instrument sounds that can be recorded live on audio tracks of the timeline. This is intended to be used for loading a VSTi sampler with foley sounds such as footsteps or punches, so you can perform these sounds in real time and record the result to another track as you watch performers walking or punching in the edit, even if you lack a recording booth with foley pits and props.”.
    You may want to have a look at the ADR, the Reverb and the Vocal Channel:

  • I followed the steps in these video:

    It worked very fine. Now I can use my midi keyboard and kontakt 5 to record some foleys. It isn't quite as good as in a DAW which supports editing the midi notes like Reaper. There you can tweak it better. But if you don't want to leave Resolve for some footsteps, it is very good.

  • Thanks for adding this information, I didn't have a midi keyboard to try.

  • DaVinci Resolve 15 is now up to beta 4 now. Does anyone here have any experience of using any of the betas that they want to/ have the time to share?

  • Hi - I have many hours of experience of the 15B3 and 15B4. For me they are both unstable. In my case it is currently at the delivery stage and certain mouse movements in the Fairlight Section.

    I've logged all the bugs with BM.

    I've seen plenty of videos on YT where it all appears to be working properly, but of course they never actually output the file.

    I'm running a 5K imac with i7 and 32GB memory, I do have three thunderbolt raid disk arrays connected, otherwise nothing usual.
