Professional non-linear editing and color correction!
DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio combines professional video editing with the world’s most advanced color corrector and incredible new effects so now you can edit, color correct, add effects and deliver projects from start to finish, all in one single software tool! This massive new update features 1,000 enhancements and 250 new features that make editing faster and color better than ever before!
DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio is the same version of the software used by professional Hollywood editors and colorists on virtually all major feature films, episodic television programs and commercials! You get ultra wide dynamic range 32-bit float YRGB image processing and GPU acceleration for producing beautiful images that no other system can match.
With a huge number of new editing features, DaVinci Resolve 12.5 now has virtually every editing and trimming tool imaginable! You get context sensitive trimming, an intuitive edit overlay for quickly assembling edits and more. In addition to its professional editing features, you also get unique tools that you won't find in any other software such as the new ripple overwrite and a revolutionary new audio waveform overlay that makes finding and editing to audio cues incredibly fast!
DaVinci Resolve features an incredibly rich set of primary and secondary color correction tools, along with new HDR tools and ResolveFX. Unlike other editors, which force you to do color correction on an editing timeline, DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio has a dedicated interface designed for high end color work that goes far beyond any other editing system. Best of all you can switch back and forth between editing and color correction at any time with a single click!
DaVinci Resolve 12.5 introduces ResolveFX, an amazing collection of high performance GPU accelerated plug-ins such as blurs, light rays, mosaics and more! You also get more transitions, on-screen title editing, improved keyframe animation and curve editing in the timeline, new speed ramp effects and Fusion Connect, which lets you link and send shots to Fusion for visual effects!
Additional Features in DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio
DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio has the same features as the free version, but also gives you additional creative tools such as temporal and spatial noise reduction, optical quality motion and blur effects, lens distortion correction, de-interlacing, lens flares, lens blur and film grain. You also get the latest HDR (high dynamic range) grading and stereoscopic 3D tools, remote rendering, higher resolution output and an amazing set of collaborative workflow tools that let multiple people work on the same project at the same time!
