We’re here at NAB 2017 and wow theres this enormous ad for DaVinci Resolve 14 on the side of the southern convention center. This is actually a pretty big deal. DaVinci Resolve 14 has always been geared towards professional color grading but with this new update they’ve added a ton of new features for both video and audio editing. You can see the complete list on the Black Magic forums and you can already download the free public beta which has some limitations when compared to the full studio version which has gone down in price to $300. I took a four hour training course today and there is definitely a lot of cool stuff in resolve but, and I hate to admit this, as an NLE its still not as feature rich as adobe premier and there are still plenty of bugs to fix like this one where audio playback simply does not work at all. Nevertheless I’m going to start using DaVinci Resolve 14 on my home computer. While sending feedback and feature requests through the forums. If they fix the bugs and continue to add more awesome features we just might switch Linus Media Group over to DaVinci Resolve. Frankly I’m tired of all the bugs, crashes and missing features in Premiere Pro. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I do have a 215 line spreadsheet and a three hour long playlist that goes into extreme detail about it. Speaking of which, at the Adobe booth they were showing off some of the new features in Premiere Pro 2017.1, like essential audio and essential graphics which definitely looks like an improvement over the legacy titler tool. I’ve always said theres not enough competition in the NLE market space so I’m glad that Black Magic has really stepped up their game. As a video editor I’m really looking forward to seeing what the future holds. Thanks again to Sennheiser for sponsoring our coverage of NAB 2017.
