Proxy File Generator feature automatically creates new proxies linked to the original file, which, due to the creation of a folder capable of automatically converting files into the supported H.264, H.265 or Apple ProRes formats, allows for a faster workflow and simultaneous work both online and offline, since it is possible to extract proxies into separate folders.
Besides, the Proxy Generator takes care of automatically reconnecting the created proxy files to the original one, so as to streamline the workload and ensure an easier organization of the contents.


Another new feature of this update is the expansion of the supported formats for advanced subtitling: TTML and XML texts as well as integrated MXF/IMF subtitles.

Also worth mentioning are some changes to the “Color Grading” functionality, let’s see some of them:

  • The Object Mask feature that with the help of the DaVinci Neural Engine is capable of recognizing and tracking the movements of thousands of objects that we want to modify individually to allow the application in a few steps of advanced grading effects.
  • The Ultra Beauty tool belonging to the category of the new Resolve FX, which allows the most natural corrections of the skin.
  • The 3D Depth Map tool, which is a 3D depth generator, useful for correcting backgrounds and foregrounds of the scene separately.

Above mentions are just a part of the update of this solution, which aims to simplify the work not only for workgroups but also for freelancers. Free version allows to export high-quality audio tracks, and full Ultra 4K videos. If you desire PRO version, you can also deliver videos over 4K and up to 120fps, and get additional Effects and Transitions! 

DaVinci Resolve is more suitable to professional video projects, not surprisingly it is also used by Hollywood professionals!
