Milpitas, CA - July 21, 2011 - Blackmagic Design today announced the release of a public beta of DaVinci Resolve 8.0.1 with support for Mac OS X Lion and with a new 3 way color corrector.
Included in DaVinci Resolve 8.0.1 is support for the new Mac OS X 10.7 Lion operating system, as well as a new 3 way color corrector. This new 3 way color corrector works in parallel with Resolve’s primary color corrector, and features a much simpler color wheel user interface! This 3 way color corrector accommodates all the creativity of YRGB grading, while looking very similar to the basic color correction tools found in non linear editing software.
“The 3 way color corrector makes it much easer to get started using Resolve as a new user, and will allow thousands of video editors to use Resolve for their color correction using the same workflow they are familiar with. However when combined with the high quality algorithms and the creativity of YRGB, these new Resolve users will get much better results,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design.
About DaVinci Resolve
Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve is the world’s highest performance color correction solution for Mac OS X and Linux computers. DaVinci Resolve supports more real time color correction than any other system because it’s not limited by the performance of the computer it’s running on.

DaVinci Resolve has the power of a true real time performance solution so handles complex color grades even when using dozens of primaries, secondaries, Power Windows™, multi point tracking, blurs, and more. DaVinci Resolve provides incredible performance in a low cost solution can then easily upgrade by adding extra GPU’s for supercomputer power to handle 4K resolutions, stereoscopic 3D and real time grading direct from raw camera files such as ARRI raw and RED raw R3D files can be handled with ease.
