52 CINEMONTAGE / Q3 2017 TECH TIPS by Joseph Herman B lackmagic Design continues to maintain its impressive track record of delivering well-designed products, including cameras, software, switchers, converters and a plethora of other useful tools for the production and post industry. Among the interesting products Blackmagic introduced recently are the DaVinci Resolve Mini and Micro Panels, two control surfaces that are sure to help you be a more effective colorist. Recently, I had a chance to review the Mini Panel and, in this article, I'll share my thoughts about the console. While we're at it, I'll also go over a few of the remarkable new features of DaVinci Resolve 14 which, although it has not yet been officially released, is available for download as a public beta from Blackmagic's website, If you are involved in any meaningful way with color grading for film and television, there is no doubt that you know about DaVinci Resolve, or are, in fact, already using it. Resolve is, of course, one of the world's pre-eminent color-grading environments and is used on many high-profile projects, including notable feature films, television shows, music videos and commercials. However, while Resolve has always been a leading color-grading application (even before Blackmagic acquired the software back in 2009), its prowess doesn't end there. Blackmagic has been hard at work adding other ambitious features to it, such as professional-level editing, media management and pro audio mixing, with the intention of making the software a complete post-production environment. In Resolve, you'll not only be able to color-grade your footage, but compile and edit all your shots as well as mix and sweeten the audio. From ingest to final delivery, Blackmagic wants you to start and finish your entire project in Resolve.
