The company also announced new Cloud and HyperDeck solutions.

Blackmagic Design has announced DaVinci Resolve 18, a cloud-collaboration update that allows multiple editors, colorists, VFX artists and audio engineers to work simultaneously on the same project on the same timeline anywhere in the world.

DaVinci Resolve 18 public beta is now available for download.

The update supports the Blackmagic Cloud for hosting and sharing projects, as well as a new DaVinci proxy workflow. It  also includes new Resolve FX AI tools powered by the DaVinci Neural Engine, as well as time-saving tools for editors, Fairlight legacy fixed bus to FlexBus conversion, and GPU-accelerated paint in Fusion.

Users can host project libraries using Blackmagic Cloud and collaborate with multiple parties on the same timeline in real time. The new Blackmagic Proxy Generator App automatically creates and manages proxies from camera originals. Customers can switch between camera original footage and proxies in a single click. 

DaVinci Resolve 18 also features new tools for colorists, including a new object mask that is able to recognize and track the movement of thousands of unique objects. The DaVinci Neural Engine intuitively isolates animals, vehicles, people and food, among other elements, for advanced secondary grading and effects application. The “ultra beauty” tool gives users advanced control over a subject when performing corrective beauty work; developed with professional colorists, the tool helps to address general imperfections by smoothing skin and then recovering detail to produce natural and complimentary results.
