DaVinci Resolve Studio 16 features improvements to existing ResolveFX

Blackmagic Design has announced the release of DaVinci Resolve 16, an update that adds a new cut page for HOW technicians that need to work quickly and are on tight deadlines. The cut page lets users import, edit, trim, add transitions and titles, automatically match colour and mix audio. The regular edit page is still available so customers can switch between edit and cut pages to change editing style in the middle of a job.

Blackmagic describes the cut page as challenging the traditional way of working with familiar concepts such as source tape mode and an A/B trim tool. ‘The cut page isn’t about simplification, it’s about removing the things customers don’t need and building powerful, professional tools that help customers work more quickly. And, sometimes, it means borrowing the things that were great about the past and bringing them into the future.’ When users click on the source tape button, all of the clips in their bin appear in the viewer as a single long ‘tape’. This reportedly makes it easy to scrub through all of the shots, find the parts they want and quickly edit them to the timeline.

The new cut page also features a dual timeline so users never have to zoom in or out. The upper timeline shows customers the entire program, while the lower timeline shows them the current work area. Both timelines are fully functional so that clips can be moved and trimmed in whichever timeline is convenient.
