Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Studio

$299.00

Professional non-linear editing with Hollywood’s most powerful color corrector

DaVinci Resolve Studio, from Blackmagic Design, is a renowned advanced color correction software and now also a full-fledged, non-linear editing system — it even allows to you to import projects from other NLEs, such as from Premiere Pro, as XML files. You can edit, color correct, finish, and deliver all from one system. Moreover, Resolve is highly sophisticated and oriented at the same time toward the individual user, large collaborative teams, and the growing studio owner. It’s completely scalable and resolution independent, so it can be used on set, in a small studio, or integrated into large production pipelines.
