DaVinci Resolve Stories April 18

During today’s DaVinci Resolve Cloud Update livestream, Blackmagic Design revealed brand new hardware products called Cloud Store. A DropBox-enabled high-performance network storage solution designed for film and TV productions, Cloud Store makes it easy for multiple editors to work on the same projects simultaneously.

If Blackmagic’s Cloud Store design seems familiar, it’s not just you. The unit features the same design as Blackmagic’s eGPU and eGPU Pro products that it launched a few years back for Intel Macs. Although the units look nearly identical on the outside, the machine’s guts, I/O, and overall capability, as you might imagine, is wildly different.

BlackMagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve M1 Mac support is now official. The popular video editing and color-grading app now natively supports Apple Silicon machines in version 17.1, as does the company’s visual effects app DaVinci Fusion 17.1.

DaVinci Resolve is notable for offering powerful video editing and color correction tools in an app whose free version offers most of the features of the paid one.

Even though Final Cut Pro X curiously doesn’t support external GPUs yet, DaVinci Resolve is another popular NLE that already works with eGPUs on macOS. In fact, the $299 Studio edition supports multiple GPUs, which can have a noticeable effect on both timeline and render/export performance.

I’ve been super impressed with the relentlessness that Blackmagic Design, the creators behind DaVinci Resolve, has displayed while iterating on its hardware and software products. For example, DaVinci Resolve has progressed from what was primarily viewed as a colorist’s tool that you’d use and round trip back to your primary NLE, to a competent standalone NLE. The upcoming version 15, now in beta, even sports a motion graphics platform called Fusion that’s baked right in.

As I recently traversed the show floor in Las Vegas at NAB 2018, there was a noticeable buzz about DaVinci Resolve — several popular vendors specifically named-dropped Resolve in reference to its eGPU support, and noted the impressive performance gains made possible by this feature.

In this hands-on video walkthrough, I showcase using DaVinci Resolve with multiple eGPUs. As you’ll see, an eGPU can turn a MacBook Pro — a machine that may struggle editing in DaVinci Resolve on its own — into a capable editing machine. expand full story
