DaVinci Resolve 12 is Out



DaVinci Resolve 12 includes sophisticated professional editing tools designed to handle a wide range of projects from scripted prime time dramas to fast paced stylized commercials and even multi camera productions.


Editing tools are context sensitive, which means that DaVinci Resolve automatically knows how you want to trim based on the position of the mouse so you don’t have to waste time switching tools! You also get customizable keyboard shortcuts so you can edit quickly and move between applications with ease.


DaVinci Resolve 12 has the most advanced collaborative tools that let multiple people work together on the same timeline at the same time so you can finish faster and focus on your edit!
