The company’s solutions have been used in many film and television productions such as Solo Star Wars, Jurassic World, The Walking Dead…

Although the offerings of Blackmagic design are paid, a few years ago, they started offering the basic version of the software for free. With each version number, the number of features increased, and mainly the editing functions, but also e.g. the audio and effect editing, grew in scope.

The free edition is available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Even if the origin of the program lies in color correction, many use it mainly as a non-destructive video editing program. This means that you can use it to cut and edit videos without changing the source material.

DaVinci Resolve contains all the important functions for semi-professional and professional video editing.
