More from John Brawley
Now we can play with Cinema DNG files.
Thanks JB :)
The start of a wild ride! :-)
Below is an email sent out by Grant Petty:
I wanted to send you an email to let you know we have a new Blackmagic Forum, we have posted some shots from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera for download and that DaVinci Resolve 9 Beta 3 is now available for download.
We have a new Blackmagic Forum on our web site now and we think it will allow people to help each other and share knowledge. If you would like to check it out then please go to forum.blackmagicdesign.com.
Blackmagic Cinema Camera Files
We have posted some RAW CinemaDNG shots from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera for download, and people have been asking for these. They are RAW so they have the entire image of the camera available for color grading. Because RAW images are a little different to grade than video files, there is a post by John Brawley on our forum with more info on the shots and how to grade them.
To get more info and the downloads links please to go http://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=15
DaVinci Resolve 9 Beta 3
DaVinci Resolve 9 is a dramatic update to the previous version and apart from powerful audio and onset tools, it has a completely redesigned user interface that's much more friendly. By friendly I mean it's much faster to use, and also easier to learn if you're new to color grading and DaVinci Resolve.
Of course we have also updated the free DaVinci Resolve 9 Lite, which you can simply download at no charge if you would like to use DaVinci now.
DaVinci Resolve 9 Lite is quite powerful even when compared to the full version. It has no restrictions in quality, no limitations in types of files it can open, no limitations in number of nodes you can use and no limitations of the number of layers when compared to the full version of DaVinci Resolve. You can even grade high resolution RAW 2K, 4K and even 6K camera files, when outputting to HD.
If you need to do higher resolution projects with more complicated grades, then you can just purchase the full version for $995.
There have been some fantastic videos made by people explaining some of the new features in DaVinci Resolve 9 and I have listed some of these below.
Color Grading Central have a really nice tutorial on how to grade using DaVinci Resolve 9. Just scroll down to the video.
For a great overview of the new DaVinci Resolve user interface, check:
Patrick Inhofer has posted an extremely detailed training video on how to set up and get started with DaVinci Resolve 9.
There is a fantastic audio pod cast discussing the new features.
Lastly, Alexis Van Hurkman has some info on his blog about the new features in DaVinci Resolve 9.
The version of DaVinci Resolve 9 on our web site is a public beta, but its looking quite stable now. We expect the final release by the end of the month if you prefer to wait for that.
I hope you find these resources helpful and find the new DaVinci Resolve a much improved tool for the most creative color correction work. It's sure been a lot of fun working on this release and I know personally I really love using this new version!
