Blackmagic Design, a producer of video editing products, says a new version of its DaVinci Resolve Lite product enabling unlimited color correction nodes is now available.
DaVinci Resolve Lite 8.1 has unlimited color correction nodes that enable the use of multiple color correctors for more complex and creative grading, which is a dramatic boost in power over the previous version of DaVinci Resolve Lite that was limited to two nodes, Blackmagic says. Adding more than two color correction nodes was the top requested feature by DaVinci Resolve Lite colorists, the company says.
To help promote the art of color correction, DaVinci Resolve Lite includes many powerful features found in the full version of DaVinci Resolve for a powerful toolset that can be downloaded free, the company says.
DaVinci Resolve Lite includes all the same high quality processing of the full DaVinci Resolve, but projects are limited to SD and HD resolutions. In addition, unlimited nodes require using a single processing GPU and a single RED Rocket card. Stereoscopic 3D features, noise reduction, power mastering, remote grading and sharing projects with an external database server are features only offered in the full DaVinci Resolve so are not included in this free DaVinci Resolve Lite edition, Blackmagic say. To acquire those features requires an upgrade to the full DaVinci Resolve Software which costs nearly $1,000, the company adds.
“Thousands of colorists have downloaded and are using DaVinci Resolve Lite to help generate a revolution in visual design that’s dramatically improving the production values of the entire television industry,” said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design’s CEO. “We are very excited to be able to offer this new enhanced version of DaVinci Resolve Lite, and we hope that many more people will be able to explore the art of color correction on their television production work.”
