Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 15 Upgrade Integrates VFX and Motion Graphics

DaVinci Resolve 15 is a massive upgrade that fully integrates Fusion visual effects and motion graphics while adding more audio tools.

Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve 15 features an entirely new Fusion page for creating feature film quality visual effects and motion graphics animation. The new Fusion page is a true 3D workspace with over 250 tools for compositing, vector paint, particles, keying, rotoscoping, 2D and 3D text animation, tracking, stabilization and more. 

Audio features have been expanded. With Fairlight audio there are newly implemented extensive ADR tools, retiming with pitch correction, normalisation audio and video scrollers, a fixed playhead with scrolling timeline, sound libraries, and more than a dozen built in cross platform FairlightFX plugins such as reverb, hum removal, vocal channel and de‑esser.

Editors and colorists get new stacked and tabbed timelines for quickly copying and pasting shots between sequences, dramatically faster project loading, on-screen annotations, subtitle and closed captioning tools, 2D and 3D Fusion title templates, a floating timecode window, a new LUT browser, shared grades, multiple playheads and improved HDR support.

Additionally, new ResolveFX lets customers quickly patch blemishes or add/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.

FusionFX brings advanced compositing software for visual effects artists and motion graphic animators right into the desktop. Now cinematic feature film quality visual effects and stunning broadcast motion graphic animations can be created without having to switch software applications.

Further, with built in Fairlight audio, users get a complete digital audio workstation with professional mixer, automation, metering, monitoring, sample level editing, new ADR tools, a sound library database, and native audio plug-ins. Users can even mix down and master to multiple formats, including 3D audio space formats such as 5.1, 7.1 and even 22.2.

Redefining post production workflows, the solution allows assistant editors to prepare footage while editors cut the picture, colorists grade the shots, effects artists work on VFX, and sound editors mix and finish audio, all in the same project at the same time. Users no longer have to waste time conforming and no longer have to wait for a locked edit before starting color and audio work. This means picture editors, visual effects artists, colorists, and sound editors can now work in parallel, leaving more time for everyone to be creative.
