Among new features, editors can now edit timeline clips through transcribed audio

DaVinci Resolve 19 Blackmagic

Blackmagic has added over 100 new features in DaVinci Resolve 19.

Now available as a public beta, one new feature includes the ability for editors to work directly with transcribed audio to find speakers and edit timeline clips. The analyzer is now able to detect multiple voices, allowing customers to assign names to different speakers and refine text based search and text replacement operations.

Other AI-based tools include a film look creator effect which emulates photometric film processes, and IntelliTrack AI that can track motion and automatically pan audio in Fairlight. The latter means With AI audio panning to video, users can pan multiple actors in a scene, controlling their voice positions in the mix environment. The AI based dialogue separator FX then lets users rebalance dialogue against background sound and the reverberant sound of the room.

Meanwhile, Fusion has an expanded set of USD tools plus a new multipoly rotoscoping tool. The cut page has new broadcast replay tools for live multi camera broadcast editing, playout and replay with speed control.

Blackmagic Cloud has also had some changes, with it now possible to share projects with a group or team instead of one-by-one. Users can also manage storage access, share Presentations, and create a single sign on, as well as buy or rent DaVinci Resolve Studio licences.
