Alexis Van Hurkman: What is New in DaVinci Resolve 14?

During NAB 2017, LumaForge hosted the Faster, Together Stage. There, post professionals from around the world came to talk share ideas on making post production more efficient. One of those presenters was Alexis Van Hurkman.

Alexis talked about what everybody talked about this year at NAB: Blackmagic and Resolve 14.

He gave an overview of the new improvements for editors and colorists with a detailed explanation and demonstration of some new key features. His presentation is both informative and entertaining.

If you are an advanced Resolve user, you will delighted to see the new features demonstrated from one of Blackmagic’s best consultants. If you haven’t used Resolve at all, you may be surprised by some of the amazing things this application can do.

New features include improvements in performance, floating bins for editors, the Facial Refinement Tool, the Point Warper and Gamut Mapping.

Keep an eye on Pro Video Coalition to see other presentations from the Faster, Together Stage over the next few weeks!

My hope and been that the V13/V14 would be the “Studio” version would have a $500 price, the “Lite” would have a price increase to $250, and a new FREE “Rapid” would be stripped of many functions. The goal would be to cut every drop-down menu to no more than 12 items. The multipage Preference pageS would be reduced to one page: Project Resolution and Frame-rate, Optimise/Render settings are about all that’s really needed. What’s not needed in a FREE version: VTR support, film scanning, film printing, SDI output (HDMI support is needed with no BM hardware), grading versions, Fairlight,… Read more »

So you’re wanting a much easier to use version on top of the two existing versions? What harm do you see in there being that much functionality in the free version?


I actually want more. More like the editing and mouse functions of Sony Vegas. Vegas is still the king of super fast editing. What it takes me 5 seconds to do in Vegas, takes 3 minutes in any other NLE. I hate the other editors, regardless of their massive, cross-board functions, when the editing process is so tedious. Vegas rules. Once you go Vegas, you’ll cuss the rest.
