In addition, DaVinci Resolve 17 comes with new HDR grading tools that allow you to create custom color wheels for the specific tonal ranges you want. The wheels could even include exposure and saturation controls, giving you the power to make fine adjustments as needed. Blackmagic’s upgraded program comes with improved audio features, as well. It has a new analysis tool that can detect individual words, beats or sound effects. The tool marks them as vertical lines in the waveform to make it easy to identify specific parts of a video for sound editing.
Aside from announcing new version of its video editor, Blackmagic has also introduced a new DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor console. The accessory was designed specifically for the program, with keys and a dial that give you quick access to DaVinci Resolve’s features. While the DaVinci Resolve software itself is free to use, the console will set you back $295.
