  • Tutorials for safely upgrading to Resolve 16
  • DaVinci Resolve 16 Learning Resources

DaVinci Resolve 16, the all in one editing, colour grading, audio mixing and delivery super-app, was announced at NAB on 8th April 2019. A scant 4 months it has completed it’s public beta and is now officially released (version 16.0 as of 8th August). In those four months Blackmagic Design released 7 iterations of the beta, each one adding a huge number of new features, bug fixes and ‘general improvements’.

In an unusual move they have simultaneously released a new version called 16.1 public beta, which includes yet more new features such as:

  • Support for automatically grouping shots from one camera by analyzing timecode and camera number metadata
  • Boring detector with timeline indicators to detect edits which are running too long
  • Jump cut detector with timeline indicators for flash frames and jump cuts
  • ResolveFX Stop Motion
  • ResolveFX and OpenFX plugins can now process and modify the alpha channel
  • Ability to preserve video essence for faster rendering of uncompressed clips without content changes
  • Support for a full-screen viewer on an additional display on DaVinci Resolve Studio
  • Requires: macOS 10.14.6 Mojave

As this only just came out today, it will be interesting to see how this tandem official-beta process works out. BMD have pitched it as a win-win, so that anyone who is relying on using an official stable release can, and those who want to live on the top end of the development curve, can too. You can read the 16.1 beta new features list here.

The release notes say that the Mac OS minimum requirements are macOS 10.14.16 Mojave, for both 16.0 and 16.1, but it appears that both versions run under High Sierra (10.13.6).

This demo from CEO Grant Petty will walk you through all of the latest announcements and a quick demo of Resolve 16.1 too.

In the rest of this post I’ll unpack what all the new features in the official 16.0 release are in detail and point you to some really useful resources for getting your head about the big picture of this huge update. However, if you want to jump straight into some DaVinci Resolve 16 specific tutorials, hit this other new post for that.

It’s also worth noting that as Fusion 16 (the standalone version) is using the same codebase as DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio, Blackmagic Design have also released updates to that, in tandem with the Studio and free versions of Resolve. To learn more about Fusion in DaVinci Resolve check out these previous posts for tips, tutorials and excellent paid training.

If you’re new to the world of DaVinci Resolve and are looking for comprehensive professional training instead of attempting to piece things together from YouTube tutorials, then I’d highly recommend checking out what LowePost.com has to offer ($60 for a year’s membership!), as well as the excellent high-end training from MixingLight.com and the new series of faster more accessible training from Ripple Training.com.

I cover all of these trainers in these two in-depth previous posts: Learn High-End Finishing Techniques with Fusion in Resolve | DaVinci Resolve 14 Training Courses Reviewed

But anyway, what exactly are all the new features in DaVinci Resolve 16 and where can you turn to learn all about them in detail?

DaVinci Resolve 16 New Features PDF

Well you can peruse at your leisure the 86 breezy pages of the official DaVinci Resolve 16 New Features Guide, which is actually a very good idea. With 7 chapters covering each Resolve Page individually as well as a chapter on General Improvements and improvements to ResolveFX, you can learn a lot in a short amount of time.

What’s also great is that you can not only learn what the new features are, but also how to use them. Here are a few interesting tidbits and recommended reading:

  • p.7 – Hide pages or page navigation to focus on a single page
  • p.8 – Stay up to date with DaVinci Resolve > Check for Updates
  • p.9 – Improved H.264 encoding on macOS
  • p.10 – Decoding and linking of IMF supplemental packages
  • p.23 – Individual Timeline Settings for Format, Monitoring, and Output
  • p.26 – New Adjustments Clips
  • p.28 – Paste Grades in the Edit Page
  • p.31 – Reveal selected LUT used on node
  • p.32 – Improved Auto Colour Correction and Shot Match
  • p.34-38 – New and improved GPU accelerated scopes
  • p.42 – (Studio Only) ResolveFX Object Removal
  • p.46 – (Studio Only) ResolveFX Chromatic Aberration (remove colour fringing)
  • p.55 – Fusion Planar and Camera Tracker improvements
  • p.64-66 – Elastic Wave Audio Retiming (accurate performance matching)
  • p.72 – FairlightFX Dialog Processor (6 plugins in one for polishing dialogue)
  • p.72 – Create your own SFX with Foley Sampler
  • p.80 – Quick Export (3 click preset based exports)
  • p.82 – By-Pass Re-encode When Possible – Faster exports when the video clip stays the same
  • p.83 – Deliver to YouTube/Vimeo/Frame.io (export and automatic login and upload)

A couple of quick extra quotes on some particular features. When using the improved Auto Colour Correction and Shot Match you’ll get “optimal results when working in the Rec.709 color space, and at a gamma of 2.4, so they work well in conjunction with using Resolve Color Management (RCM) to normalize media first.

‘Bypass re-encode when possible’ also works in situations where you’ve placed a previously rendered Video+Audio clip onto a timeline and edited a new audio mix clip to replace the old audio mix. In this situation, a new file will be quickly written with the new audio, but the video component of that file won’t be re-encoded, again resulting in a fast export at the highest quality.”

It’s also worth noting that for the Deliver to… feature where it will export, login and upload to YouTube, Vimeo and Frame.io, you’ll need to login in a web browser and check your privacy settings for the video as it’s mostly likely to default to ‘public’ as that’s usually the default setting on the server side.

If you want to see in granular detail what was added or fixed in each of the DaVinci Resolve Studio beta releases, you can scroll through all that here on the Blackmagic Design forums:

As you can see they work those developers hard at Blackmagic!

If you’d rather not read your way through all the new features, then sit back and enjoy this official 25 minute tour of (some of) the new features in DaVinci Resolve 16. If you click through to YouTube you’ll be able to jump through all the timestamps for each of the 60 individual topics covered. Here are a few highlights:

  • 00:15 – Difference between Edit and Cut pages
  • 03:10 – Cut page smart edit features
  • 06:23 – Cut page source tape mode
  • 09:15 – Edit page custom timeline settings
  • 09:38 – DaVinci Neural Engine and facial recognition
  • 11:58 – Edit page shot stabilization
  • 12:43 – Native frame.io integration
  • 13:53 – Fusion page GPU accelerated tools
  • 14:23 – Color page DaVinci Neural Engine color and shot match
  • 14:42 – Color page curves with histogram overlay

DaVinci Resolve Editing Keyboard

At the same time Blackmagic Design announced DaVinci Resolve 16 they also began to demo a whole new editing focused keyboard, which should be available in August 2019.

Editors with sufficient memory were quick to point out it’s retro styling, although it doesn’t seem to have received the ire of Apple’s $999 display stand for it’s similar price point of $995. For that level of investment you get the following features:

  • All metal design for increased strength
  • USC-C connector
  • Integrated search dial control
  • Buttons to instantly re-sort bins
  • Large trim in and out buttons
  • New keyboard modes for intelligent editing
  • Buttons to allow search dial to live trim
  • Buttons to change transition type
  • Keypad for direct timecode entry

It looks like a premium device, and it certainly has a premium price point, but I’m not entirely convinced, though open to being corrected!, that it will deliver faster editing than a Wacom tablet and some decent keyboard shortcut memorisation.

Jason Druss a product specialist at Blackmagic Design, demonstrates the new editing keyboard in action in this short video from NAB 2019.

In this exceptionally long Technical Product Overview from CEO Grant Petty, you can get his perspective on the new DaVinci Resolve keyboard and their philosophy on the design: “there’s nothing cheap about it all… we’ve just chosen the most premium features we can.” The keyboard will feature repairable spare parts, which should extend it’s life somewhat, which is great given the up-front investment.

I’m hoping to get my hands on one to review in detail, but it will be interesting to see if/how many editors jump for one of these when they become available.

How to safely upgrade to DaVinci Resolve 16

JayAreTV walks you through how to correctly back up your databases before upgrading your version of DaVinci Resolve to the latest version of the software.

If you really want to have both DaVinci Resolve 16 and DaVinci Resolve 15 installed on your system at the same time, these two tutorials will walk you through it for both Windows (below) and Mac (above). It’s not a perfect process, but it is possible with a few careful steps.

DaVinci Resolve 16 Best New Features

Theo from the ever dependable MiesnerMedia shares his 17 favourite new features in DaVinci Resolve 16.

Should you finally switch to DaVinci Resolve?

The (french?) chap from Zebra Zone shares why he has switched away from Premiere Pro after a decade of use, and over to DaVinci Resolve 16 for all of his editing, grading and sound mixing requirements. In this fairly nicely produced video he outlines the 7 biggest reasons he found for making the leap, and covers a few current drawbacks. These aren’t actually too major other than the general necessity for investing in a decent GPU.

The hardest part about switching to another software, or even just deciding to have the common decency to try another NLE, is biting the bullet on the first couple of days in which everything is horrible. All your muscle memory is firing in the wrong directions, nothing works quite ‘how it should’ and it’s just painful. You keep thinking – I could be doing this faster if I was just working in _______ instead! But don’t give up, keep going and if you need some encouragement check out this previous post on tips for switching from and to all the major NLEs.

Colorist Denver Riddle shares his thoughts on the latest release of DaVinci Resolve, having been using it since version 8. This video is ideal for anyone using Resolve for the first time, or seriously considering switching to it as their core post production app.

In the video you’ll get a guided tour of each page and a quick overview of how you would work through the app, and could choose to turnover assets to other applications (or not) along the way.

Denver has a ton of great colour grading training and bespoke applications which you can check out in detail at colorgradingcentral.com.
