Blackmagic Design has announced DaVinci Resolve for iPad. Optimized for MultiTouch technology and Apple Pencil, the app features support for cut and color pages providing access to DaVinci’s award winning image technology, color finishing tools and latest HDR workflows.
What’s more, Blackmagic Cloud support allows creators to collaborate with multiple users around the world. DaVinci Resolve for iPad will be available in quarter four 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 optimized performance for Apple Silicon, DaVinci Resolve delivers 4x faster Ultra HD ProRes render performance on the new iPad Pro with M2, according to Blackmagic Design CEO Grant Petty. HDR is also supported for customers using an 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 quickly create grades on set or color correct clips in post production directly from their iPad, according to Petty.
The new DaVinci Resolve for iPad will open and create standard DaVinci Resolve project files that 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.
