DaVinci Resolve for iPad will be available in Q4 2022 from the Apple App Store as a free download.
Blackmagic Design has announced DaVinci Resolve for iPad, so creators can extend video workflows in new ways and places.
Optimised for MultiTouch technology and Apple Pencil, DaVinci Resolve for iPad features support for cut and colour pages providing access to DaVinci’s image technology, colour finishing tools and latest HDR workflows.
DaVinci Resolve for iPad will be available in Q4 2022 from the Apple App Store as a free download, with an upgrade to DaVinci Resolve Studio for iPad also available as an in-app purchase.
With optimised performance for Apple Silicon, DaVinci Resolve delivers 4x faster Ultra HD ProRes render performance on the new iPad Pro with M2. HDR is also supported for customers using a 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the M1 chip. Creators can send a clean feed grading monitor output to an Apple Studio Display, Pro Display XDR or an AirPlay-compatible display. This lets customers use the external display to create grades on set or colour-correct clips in post-production directly from their iPad.
The new DaVinci Resolve for iPad will open and create standard DaVinci Resolve project files which are compatible with the desktop version of DaVinci Resolve 18. Supported file formats include H.264, H.265, Apple ProRes and Blackmagic RAW, with clips able to be imported from the iPad Pro internal storage and Photos library, or externally connected iCloud and USB-C media disks.
Customers get DaVinci’s image technology with 32‑bit float processing, patented YRGB colour science and a massive wide gamut colour space for the latest HDR workflows. With DaVinci Resolve, customers get the same tools that professional colourists and editors use daily to finish blockbuster feature films and television programming!
The newly redesigned project libraries are built for real-time local and remote collaboration. While the new Blackmagic Cloud lets customers host and access their projects from anywhere in the world. Now customers can collaborate with editors, colourists, visual effects artists, and sound engineers all working together at the same time.
The cut page has also been co-designed to work with a hardware panel such as the DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor, which is also supported on the DaVinci Resolve for iPad.
Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO, said: “DaVinci Resolve for iPad is truly a revolution for post-production. Customers will have the power of Hollywood post-production tools for editing and colour correction literally in their hands, creating a whole new generation of creative editors and colourists. Compatibility with DaVinci Resolve 18 and Blackmagic Cloud, mean that customers can collaborate on the same timeline with other editors or colourists as well as audio engineers and VFX artists from literally anywhere in the world. I think it will be exciting to try out the new iPad version and I can’t wait to see how our customers use it, their creativity will be mind-blowing.”
