DaVinci Resolve 11 Edit Page

Just a few years ago, DaVinci Resolve was a boutique, all-in-one hardware/software solution for colorists that was a six-figure product. The price currently stands at $30k; however, Blackmagic began offering DaVinci Resolve for Mac in 2010 for $995, which was a huge deal at the time. The price still stands at $995 for the full version; however, Blackmagic also offers a Resolve Lite version for free. The $995 full version is also included for free with the $1995 Blackmagic Cinema Camera and higher level cameras.

That’s right; Blackmagic just jumped head-first into the NLE market. [click to continue…]
