Blackmagic Design has released a public beta of DaVinci Resolve 12, its professional editing and color correction software. It’s now available to download from the Blackmagic Design web site. In version 12, DaVinci Resolve is now a full-fledged non-linear editor for SD, HD and Ultra HD projects. You should note that the free version is no longer referred to as “Lite.” Instead, the non-paid version is now known as DaVinci Resolve 12 and the paid version is DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio.
“Since it was announced at NAB earlier this year, the response from professional editors and colorists has been overwhelming,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design, in a statement. “Everyone has been asking to get it as soon as we could provide it, and now we have decided to release it as a public beta so we can get feedback from the editing and color correction communities to help us make it even better. We’re very focussed on bringing innovation back into the world of professional editing and color correction, and it has been fun and exciting working on this major update. We want everybody to try it!”
Once beta testing is complete, the main final release of DaVinci Resolve 12 will be available in late August to download from the Blackmagic Design website free of charge for all current DaVinci Resolve customers.
