DaVinci Resolve 14 looks very promising and more videos about it are popping up on YouTube every day. One feature that was left out in many demonstrations until now is the integration of FairLight for audio editing. With the new version of Resolve, it’s possible to edit sound within the software. No need for an additional costly plugin, or any round-trip of a sort. Let’s see how with Casey Faris.
Resolve was primarily known for its color editing capabilities. It’s become an industry standard for grading, but Blackmagic Design wants to offer more to its users by creating a one-stop editing software. It has had editing possibilities for a while now, but audio edition wasn’t quite up to par. With the integration of FairLight Audio, it’s a whole different world, and it could potentially make other apps such as Adobe Audition useless for most video makers.
In the video above, Faris gives a quick tour of the possibilities available for audio editing. It doesn’t go into much detail, but it offers a good preview of what the software is capable of. He uses a real-world example to show how to go from zero to a good audio for your video.
If you’d like to discover for yourself, all the features DaVinci Resolve 14 has to offer, be sure to download the beta version. It’s free and so will be the final version unless you need all the bells and whistles of the Studio edition.
