If you want to edit videos in a more natural way, DaVinci Resolve Studio has advanced noise-reduction tools. Noise reduction will reduce the amount of noise in your videos and help them look clearer. It also works to reduce lens distortion.

You can also use Fairlight, DaVinci Resolve’s audio software, to edit audio. It supports real-time effects like reverb, de-esser, and hum remover. It has low latency, the next-gen audio engine that intelligently manages threads and CPU cores. It also supports up to 2,000 tracks at once.

Neural Engine

Powered by the DaVinci Neural Engine, the Apply Auto Shot Match feature now automatically frames shots based on content, saving you time and effort. This is particularly useful when you have a multi-camera shoot or a shot with a lot of content that may not be in focus.

DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Studio can now import 10-bit videos. These files have over 1 billion colors, which can be useful for increasing the colors in your video. Using these files can improve your scenes’ appearance and make them look more natural.

The new Resolve FX also has some useful features. These include a resize tool that improves tracking of faces in partial occlusion, as well as eye sharpening for faces. There’s also an Anim Curves modifier, which can be used to shape animations.

Customizable interfaces

Whether you are new to video editing or have been using DaVinci Resolve for years, there are new customizable interfaces available for you. These new options make it easier for you to get the most out of this industry-leading color correction software.

The DaVinci Resolve interface is divided into different sections, highlighting the different stages of a post-production workflow. These include the Unified Color Grading panel, which features color wheels and curves for a powerful color correction workflow. The panel also includes exposure, contrast, and a Vectorscope Skin Tone line. Custom LUTs can also be used to color-grade video in DaVinci Resolve.

You can also customize the view of the timeline. New on-screen controls let you adjust motion paths directly from the timeline viewer. You can also expand, collapse and nest timelines. This allows multiple editors to work on different timelines at the same time. The Resolve interface is also easy to navigate, thanks to its intuitive design.

Remote streaming

Streaming with DaVinci Resolve allows for collaboration between teams. This means that multiple people can work on the same project in real-time. It also allows for collaboration across time zones.

The new version of DaVinci Resolve offers major performance enhancements and new features. This includes GPU-accelerated Fusion paint and a new Cloud service. These new features allow users to collaborate, share projects, and manage paths between machines. It also allows for intelligent media location management. It can also handle unlimited-resolution media files.
