The DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor with Studio Software from Blackmagic Design is a perfect hardware complement for the editor on the go, and it includes a license for DaVinci Resolve Studio right in the box. The editor interfaces with macOS or Windows editing systems running DaVinci Resolve Studio, providing you with keyboard shortcuts and controls that speed up your editing, compared to using a mouse to navigate your edit system. The Speed Editor is small enough to take with you on location, and its built-in battery allows you to use it via Bluetooth for a wire-free connection. The Speed Editor is charged and can connect to your computer via an optional USB Type-C cable.
The Speed Editor features dedicated push buttons that control the edit modes, timeline navigation, and effects of DaVinci Resolve. Additionally, these push buttons provide shortcuts to useful features available only on the Speed Editor. The built-in Search Dial is similar to the jog wheel often found on professional edit decks, but in conjunction with the push-button keys and DaVinci Resolve software, the search dial is much more powerful.
Built into the Speed Editor is a Search Dial reminiscent of the jog wheel that editors have used for decades to shuttle through footage. Combined with push-button transport controls, the Search Dial allows you to jog through your footage and trim in and out points. The Search Dial is machined from metal and has a weighted feel for slowly jogging through your footage or shuttling through by spinning the dial.
Although the Speed Editor’s panel is small and lacks a Qwerty keyboard, it is loaded with dedicated push buttons for quickly accessing features and navigating your timeline.
The Speed Editor supports controlling DaVinci Resolve either hardwired with an optional USB cable or via Bluetooth. The Speed Editor’s integrated battery allows you to work wirelessly, and it charges via an optional USB cable.
