Blackmagic Design to launch DaVinci Resolve 17 with Enormous Features and Improvements

The DaVinci Resolve video editor’s latest version is all set to arrive with many new features and enhancements. Blackmagic Design has confirmed the same by bringing the beta version of the DaVinci Resolve 17 onboard, which is now downloadable for everyone, is available on the developer’s website. However, the final output of this version would take some time to arrive. Until then, people can get an idea of what this build has in store by checking out the beta version.

A notable benefit that comes packed with this version is that from now on, it is very simple to create and upload videos to Instagram, without the hassle of having to crop them as it is an automatic operation manually. The user should be able to take a video with an aspect ratio of 16:9 HD or even Ultra HD video, which automatically transforms itself into either a square or a rectangular form, depending on the video’s nature. Once the video cropping process is complete, the user can post the same on Instagram.

Now, a question that comes to our minds is that, how can the video get cropped in a square or rectangular format? The credit for this goes to the DaVinci Neural Engine, which is used for this purpose. The DaVinci Neural Engine has facial recognition ability, owing to which it can determine the respective positions within the video area. It explains the automatic cropping of the video in square or rectangular forms, thereby eliminating the need to crop videos manually.

Apart from this, another new element, known as “magic mask,” is also present within this build. This feature can mask those objects which need to be isolated within the frame. Again, the “magic mask” requires the help of the DaVinci Neural Engine so that it can segrate an entity by creating a mask for the same. It can work both ways: the mask can be created such that it covers a person as a whole, or there could be instances where only certain portions need to be masked, for instance, only the face or only the legs. Masks can be created for these portions as well. All of these factors simplify the editing process.

Apart from the above-stated characteristics, there are many other enhancements the DaVinci Resolve 17 has to offer. One of these is a whole new set of the latest grading tools suitable for HDR. These tools give users the privilege to set colors that suit a specific tone range. The rate of exposure and saturation can also be customized here, allowing the user to fine-tune adjustments. 

Furthermore, even the audio features have been upgraded by including a tool for analyzing words individually. This tool can also determine different kinds of beats as well as varieties of sound effects. The tool denotes these elements within the waveform in vertical lines, which simplifies the complete sound editing process within a video. 

The video editor and Blackmagic have also brought about the latest version of the DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor console. This one comes with new keys and a dial, which takes the user directly to the features of DaVinci Resolve. Although the DaVinci Resolve software would not incur any costs, the console would cost $295.
