Developer's Description

Hollywood's Color Corrector

DaVinci Resolve is the world’s most advanced color grading system. Virtually all Hollywood movies, television commercials and episodic television programs have their "look" crafted by DaVinci Resolve. DaVinci Resolve is developed in partnership with major Hollywood studios and is the standard in color correction worldwide.

This DaVinci Resolve Lite edition includes no limits on file support, unlimited file resolutions, no limits on image quality, no limits on layers and you get unlimited color correction nodes. DaVinci Resolve Lite is extremely powerful and is only limited to HD resolution projects, a single GPU and it excludes advanced noise reduction and 3D stereoscopic features that are all available in the full DaVinci Resolve version.

DaVinci Resolve Lite features Emmy™ award winning color correction technology that uses 32 bit float based YRGB image paths for the highest quality possible. This means DaVinci Resolve Lite requires a current model OpenCL based graphics processor/graphics card with a minimum of 512MB of graphics memory. Your Mac should have a fast hard disk for video, 16GB of system memory, Mac OS X 10.8.2, at least a 1680 x 1050 size monitor.
