DaVinci Resolve makes it easy to make videos for Instagram


Blackmagic Design has announced a new version of video editor DaVinci Resolve, which comes with hundreds of new features and enhancements.

The final version of DaVinci Resolve 17 has not yet been officially launched, but the generic trial version can be downloaded from the company's website if you want to take advantage of what it can offer.

The app brings an easy way to create videos for the Instagram platform, and users can make 16:9 HD or Ultra HD videos and create square or vertical versions that you can share on social networks.

The feature uses the DaVinci Neural engine to identify faces and reposition them inside the video, so you don't have to manually scan or cut each frame.

Another new feature called The Magic Mask also relies on the DaVinci Neural engine to create automatic masks to isolate the object.

The feature can make masks for a whole person or for certain parts, such as faces or arms, to make the editing process much faster.

In addition, DaVinci Resolve 17 comes with new HDR rating tools that let you create special color wheels for the specific color range ranges you want.

The wheels can also include exposure and color saturation controls, giving you the ability to make precise adjustments as needed.

The upgraded Blackmagic Design program comes with improved audio features as well, including a new analysis tool that can detect individual words, rhythms, or sound effects.

The tool distinguishes individual words, rhythms, or sound effects as vertical lines in the waveform, to make it easier to identify certain parts of the video to edit the sound.

The trial includes support for Apple's new M1 chip, meaning that users of new Macs can use the original version of the main film-making tool.

DaVinci Resolve is a standard color rating application in the industry, but it has become much more so in recent years.

The app also includes a video editor, graphics tools and a sound editor, and most of its features are available for free.

Apart from announcing a new version of the video editor, Blackmagic Design also introduced the DaVinci Resolve console for speed editing.

The unit is especially designed for the program, giving you quick access to DaVinci Resolve features.

While DaVinci Resolve itself is free to use, the console sells for $295.
