Blackmagic Davinci Resolve 18 Is Now Out Of Beta And Ready To Download

High-end video editing software from Blackmagic Design has a lot of new tools for working together and editing.

DaVinci Resolve is a professional video editor from Blackmagic Design. It was made to edit Blackmagic RAW files from the company’s own cinema cameras, but it can also edit a wide range of regular video formats.

Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro are two of the most popular professional video editors, but DaVinci Resolve is right up there with them on our list of the best video editing software.

Blackmagic also makes some of the best cinema cameras and some of the best 4K video cameras, like the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K.

The most important thing is that, in addition to the paid DaVinci Resolve Studio version, there is also a free DaVinci Resolve 18 version that anyone can download and use. This version has a lot of great features and costs nothing.

With DaVinci Resolve 18, users from anywhere in the world can now work together remotely in real-time through the Blackmagic Cloud service. It means that editors, colorists, effects artists, and audio engineers can all work on the same project at the same time.

Also new is the Blackmagic Proxy Generator app, which makes proxy files from your original clips and manages them automatically. This reduces the amount of hardware you need for high-resolution projects. Links to the original files will stay in DaVinci Resolve.

“Intelligent Media Management” is another new feature that makes it easier to keep track of assets when you’re working from home or with other people.

Shared Project Libraries and Remote Monitored Streaming round out the new ways to work together. With Remote Monitored Streaming, you can use DeckLink to show the DaVinci Studio Resolve viewer on a remote monitor anywhere in the world. Blackmagic says that its 10-bit images have low latency and high quality, making them perfect for remote editing, grading, and getting feedback right away.

There are also other new things in DaVinci Resolve 18.
The DaVinci Neural Engine can separate animals, vehicles, people, food, and more. The new Object Mask can recognize and track the movement of “thousands” of objects.

With the new Depth Map effect, you can make a 3D map of a scene to grade the foreground and background separately. You can also now add graphics to warped or changed perspective surfaces.

The “Ultra Beauty” tool in Resolve FX Beauty can now smooth skin and bring back lost details. Subtitle support has also been improved, and you can now reverse Shape, Iris, and Wipe transitions.

There’s a lot more that’s new, like updates to the Fusion and Fairlight modules and a lot of improvements behind the scenes.You can check out the full list at

DaVinci Resolve 18 Studio costs $294/£294 (including VAT)/AU$479 (including tax), but the license is good for life and all future upgrades are free. If you already have a license for Studio, the update to v18 will be given to you for free.

Blackmagic cameras and desktop controllers also come with free copies of DaVinci Resolve Studio (at the time of going to press). Visit the Blackmagic Design site to learn more
