Fairlight Audio Integration

With DaVinci Resolve 14, Fairlight audio is now integrated into the application. Known for high-end sound quality and speedy processing, Fairlight is used by media professionals across the industry. All the Fairlight audio mixing tools can be used directly within DaVinci Resolve with formats like 5.1, 7.1, Dolby Surround, and 22.2.

The built-in Fairlight can record up to 96 channels while mixing in real-time. It also features a full set of audio tools for recording, editing, professional bussing, sweetening, mixing and routing, and more.
This level of integration of professional audio mixing with video editing is unprecedented in the industry. DaVinci Resolve 14 is compatible with Fairlight hardware mixing consoles, which can take your multitrack projects to the next level.

Behind-the-Scenes Optimizations

Blackmagic has performed extensive CPU and GPU optimizations for DaVinci Resolve 14, including better threading and GPU pipelining. These upgrades result in lower latency, faster UI refresh rates, support for Apple Metal, and additional features. You’ll find that DaVinci Resolve 14 has fluid performance, allows for incredibly precise editing, and makes scrubbing and playback instantaneous, even for large clips. With new acceleration for formats like H.264, you’ll be able to edit 4K images even on a laptop or mobile workstation.

Working Together for Maximum Productivity

DaVinci Resolve 14 introduces new collaboration tools that allow for simultaneous editing, color correcting, and audio mixing. Assistants can prepare footage while editors cut pictures, colorists work on grading shots, and sound editors mix the audio, all on the same project, concurrently. Timeline locking allows a user to safely work on one part of the project without fear of someone else coming in and overwriting them. A built-in chat client allows collaborators to chat within DaVinci Resolve. This secure chat works without an internet connection, to protect the intellectual property from hacking.

The new multi-user features in DaVinci Resolve 14 simplify the editing, color correcting, and audio mixing processes, allowing everyone to work on the same project together without complex importing and exporting of files.
