Blackmagic Design yesterday announced the release and immediate availability of DaVinci Resolve 12.1, an eagerly anticipated update to the popular editing and color correction software.
Version 12.1 adds a host of new features, including remote rendering 10-bit viewers as well as new editing and color correction tools, and is set to further build on the huge success of DaVinci Resolve 12.
“Since it was released in September, DaVinci Resolve 12 has been downloaded by more customers than any other version of the software and has become the industry’s fastest growing video editor,” said Blackmagic Design CEO Grant Petty. “DaVinci Resolve is now used on virtually all major films, television shows and commercials! We’ve listened to feedback from professional editors and colorists and are excited to give them this free update which includes even more of the features they’ve been asking for!”
DaVinci Resolve 12 was released after a very successful public beta earlier this year — reported by Videomaker at the time — and Blackmagic’s engineers have continued to work closely with the DaVinci Resolve community in developing the 12.1 update.
“I feel like DaVinci Resolve 12 is the NLE users have been waiting for all of these years,” said Noam Kroll, a Los Angeles based filmmaker and editor. “DaVinci Resolve 12 offers the same track based system that many editors are most comfortable with, but also provides truly innovative tools that feel very forward thinking.”
