Blackmagic Design is announcing its new line-up of products for ahead of the NAB trade show - and we are here to report on what the Australian professional video gear specialists have in store. You can watch the whole presentation, which lasted over two hours, on the YouTube link below.

Key announcements were:

  • Ability to edit timeline content based on source clip transcription.
  • AI-powered UltraNR noise reduction for spatial denoising
  • Film Look Creator 
  • AI Defocus Background isolates foreground with blur

Are you all set for the Blackmagic announcements - the music is playing, and the YouTube link (above) is now live…

Sadly, Blackmagic has disable comments on the YouTube page - so we can't report on what everyone is wanting to see. However, over 2,500 viewers are currently online, and that is going up as we type...

And we are off… with a rundown of some of the movies Blackmagic gear has been involved with. So great films there…

Some big camera news! So that will be the highlight - as we had hoped... But that will doubtlessly come at the end of the video, so stay patient

AI tools

AI Music Remixer allows you to change music to mke it fit your video better - turning a song into an instrumental 

New features in the Cut page - allowing it to catch up with advances Blackmagic has made to live video capture that are made possible with Blackmagic Cloud. This work was apparently slowed down by having to rewrite DaVinci to allow for Apple's M1, M2, and M3 chips.

Allows you to synchronize two videos you are using using the timecode, putting them in the right relative position on the editing timeline

We are an hour into the presentation now - and we are still expecting a big camera announcement (in fact, that's what we have been promised). 

Lots of new DaVinci Resolve 19 updates - all available for free, which is pretty good news
