DaVinci Resolve 9.0.3 Adds Timecode Syncing from Audio Tracks
Update also Includes Support for XML Round Trip in Final Cut Pro X 10.0.6, New CinemaDNG Control and AAF and XML Import Features
By PVC News Staff | October 29, 2012
Blackmagic Design today announced the release of DaVinci Resolve 9.0.3, a new update to the world's most advanced color correction tool. The update includes a new timecode feature to add timecode to non timecode cameras, improved CinemaDNG control palette, AAF and XML clip management, enhanced stereoscopic 3D grading and support for XML round tripping in the new release of Final Cut Pro X version 10.0.6. Resolve 9.0.3 is available immediately for free for existing DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Lite users.
This new DaVinci Resolve software allows, for the first time, cameras that do not support timecode to be used for professional shoots and still offer accurate and synced timecode for editing and conforming. By simply recording timecode from a timecode generator onto one of the cameras audio tracks, combined with the new Resolve Media Pool timecode reader feature, any camera can become integrated into professional workflows. Through the feature, Resolve is able to read the linear timecode from the audio tracks and instantly update the video timecode for those clips.
Blackmagic Design feels that this timecode reader feature will allow dozens of cameras to be used in high end production workflows where previously their lack of timecode support would have limited their ability to sync audio and be used in the post production process.
The new DaVinci Resolve software update also includes the ability to display camera metadata related color temperature and tint on the CinemaDNG color palette, giving colorists more precise color correction capabilities when working with CinemaDNG files, such as from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Additionally, Resolve users now have the ability to specify clips that are located in multiple folders in the Resolve storage library when importing AAF/XML, as well as the ability to reset automatic image transform alignments while adjusting stereoscopic 3D convergence.
DaVinci Resolve 9.0.3 is the latest version of the recently introduced DaVinci Resolve 9, which includes a completely redesigned user interface to optimize workflow speed. This significant user interface overhaul was created to harness the power of multiple new technologies added to DaVinci Resolve in the last few years, including automatic 3D eye matching, multi layering timelines, XML support, plus more camera and file type support. The new user interface is extremely fast to use and eliminates unnecessary clicks and settings. A job can be up and running in three clicks: one to log in, one to drop media into the project and the next to grade.
Other updates in Resolve 9.0.3 include:
- Enhanced ARRI RAW de bayer;
- Support to playback and grade grayscale DPX files;
- Support to playback and grade Phantom Cine grayscale images;
- Enhanced Canon C500 RAW support;
- Burn ins are now also available for SDI output;
- Improved audio waveform GUI update speed;
- Updated JL Cooper panel connection for OS X 10.8.2;
- Support for single frame sequences without numbers in the frame;
- Output sizing is now linked to the track mode;
- Addition of new keyboard shortcuts;
- Adobe CS6 Premiere Pro XML speed changes support;
- Additional fields for ALE export.
