NAB always brings out the big announcements and updates, and 2017 is no different. Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve is up for a boost with improvements in playback, color, and audio — not to mention a price drop that will certainly turn a few heads.

What’s New?

For those who aren’t on the NAB floor, you can check out the updates and a full list of what’s new on Blackmagic’s website. Overall though, Davinci Resolve 14 includes better playback, more color control, and their new audio options. Here are the highlights.

  • New playback engine
  • Fairlight audio post production tools
  • Automatic facial recognition and tracking
  • New multi-user collaboration tools

You can dig deeper into the updates in these videos explaining editing and color updates and workflows.

According to Blackmagic, these main updates will “increase responsiveness up to 10x” and  give “full 3D audio space” to edit in and make coloring easier for “smoothing skin tones, brightening eyes, changing lip color and more!

Pricedrop: $999 to $299

Perhaps the biggest piece of news, though, isn’t the updates — it’s the price drop. With this new $700 difference, you can be sure Blackmagic is looking to compete with Adobe and Apple for the everyday NLE market.
