Blackmagic has stepped it's game up once more, adding a few very cool features to Resolve. The best new news is that they've lowered the price to $299.

The new playback engine dramatically increases responsiveness with up to 10x better performance for editors. You also get a whole new page with the full Fairlight audio post production tools that let you record, edit, mix, sweeten and master sound with full 3D audio space and up to 1000 channels. Colorists will find amazing new filters that include automatic facial recognition and tracking for quickly smoothing skin tones, brightening eyes, changing lip color and more! Plus, DaVinci Resolve 14 features revolutionary new multi user collaboration tools such as bin locking, chat and timeline merging that allow editors, colorists, and sound editors to all work on the same project at the same time! All these new features make DaVinci Resolve 14 is the world’s most advanced post production software!

I'll be happy if Resolve takes over as industry standard. The workflow of Premiere and AVID have always felt unnatural to me.

Wow, the multi user stuff looks really great. I love the idea of color grading while my editor edits and then the grade just shows up in their timeline. That's some next level stuff.

Great news as long as they keep up the quality of work and support. Even with all their growing pains in cameras, it does seem that their heart is in the right place. They seem to love what they do and are listening to us.

Just bear in mind that this is a public beta, so you probably won't want to use it on a commercial or important to you production for a while yet. I gather it's still at the pretty buggy stage, which isn't that surprising given the time scale of six months since they took over Fairlight Audio.

I gather you currently need Decklink for the audio to work on Resolve V14. This may have something to do with the addition of the Fairlight Audio section.

I'd be interested in the noise reduction which is not available in the free version. The price is tempting but no way I can upgrade now. If I go past Windows 7, I'll have to build a new PC. If I go past Davinci 12.0, I loose .mov support. I have the latest Neat Video on Vegas 14 to compliment Resolve 12.0 for now. since every thing is running solid, I'm staying put on hardware and software until the wheels come off my 7 year old system.
