Blackmagic Brings DaVinci Resolve for iPad Out of Beta

Blackmagic has announced that DaVinci Resolve for iPad is out of Beta and ready to download. There is also a new version 18.1.2 update for desktop that includes new features for DaVinci Resolve Studio, and an update for Blackmagic Fusion as well.

With a touchscreen interface that will look familiar to Resolve users, the mobile version of the app provides editing on the go with similar pages that include Cut Page, Source Tape, Fast Review, Sync Bin, and others.

With the new power of the M2 processor, users are saying that the latest iPad can finally be considered a desktop-grade computer.

Users can also adjust contrast, color temperature, mid-tones, and saturation, as well as fine-tune HDR support and utilize 3D tracking.

The software also features some AI-powered features such as Magic Mask, which leverages the DaVinci Neural Engine to locate and track objects with a single click, as well as separate subjects from the background in underlit conditions and make adjustments to make them stand out better from the ambient lighting.

The app works with H.264, H.265, ProRes, and Blackmagic RAW video files, and users can access videos from local storage, an external USB-C media drive, or from iCloud.

The app has also been optimized to work with Apple Pencil, for those fine cuts at the frame level, as well as Apple’s touchpad on the Magic Keyboard.

The app works with the new iPad Pro, which has the latest M2 Apple Silicon processor, as well as the 12.9” iPad Pro with an M1 processor.

In fact, if your iPad runs iPadOS 16, Resolve for iPad will run but users will need an M1 chip or later for connecting to an​​ external display and for editing ProRes video files.

The app is available from the iTunes app store as a free download, with an in-app purchase to upgrade to DaVinci Resolve Studio for iPad.

Meanwhile, Blackmagic also released version 18.1.2 of DaVinci Resolve for Desktop, which is available for macOS, Windows, and Linux.

The new update includes an updated speed editor firmware update with Bluetooth support for interfacing with an iPad, as well as some overall housekeeping improvements for general performance and stability.

Moreover, Blackmagic Fusion Studio 18.1.2 is also out, with fixes for issues that include problem trimming comps with animated curves, loading paths with no locked keyframes, mouse scrolling in the macro editor, trimming comps with background media, and path maps in render mode with LuaModules. There are also general performance and stability improvements.

All versions of 18.1.2 are available for download at the Blackmagic Support website, and require macOS 11 Big Sur or Windows 10 Creators Update, with a minimum of 8GB of system memory for macOS and 16GB of system memory for Windows.

Double that if using Blackmagic Fusion. Users also need a discrete GPU that supports Metal or OpenCL 1.2 for Mac. For Windows, users need a GPU that supports OpenCL 1.2 or CUDA 11. Both with 2GB of VRAM.

Linux users will need CentOS 7.2 and 32GB of RAM, as well as the same GPU requirements as that for Windows. Users should also have Blackmagic Desktop Video 10.4.1 or later.
