Notable Feature: Automatic Color Matching

The most interesting feature seems to be the automatic color matching feature. Simply place the color matching box over the box of your professional color chart and watch as DaVinci resolve creates a baseline color correction. This feature saves a lot of time for those of us who normally have to map the colors by hand.

Notable Feature: Camera Tracking and Stabilizer

DaVinci Resolve also has built-in camera tracking and image stabilization making it easier to get a cinematic look. While most major editing softwares already incorporate this feature we will be interested to see how well it works.

Pricing and Availability

Davinci Resolve comes in 3 varieties:
  • DaVinci Resolve Lite is FREE but missing some features
