About DaVinci Resolve
The industry standard for color correction, Blackmagic Designâ€™s DaVinci Resolve is unique as it supports more real time color correction than any other system. DaVinci Resolve is not limited by the performance of the computer itâ€™s running on. DaVinci Resolve eliminates this performance barrier because its based on a cluster of computers with high performance GPU cards, so all processing is always real time. This means DaVinci Resolve has the power of a super computer for the real time performance of all color grades even when using dozens of primaries, secondaries, power windowsâ„¢, multi point tracking, blurs, and more. Even native 4K resolutions, stereoscopic 3D and real time grading direct from RED raw R3D files can be handled with ease.
