DaVinci Resolve Beta 4 is now live.
The long awaiting Davinci Resolve 16 Beta has arrived (now onto Beta V4) and it brings a whole host of new and exciting features as well as the usual bug fixes and performance upgrades.
If you don't already know, one of the great new features of Davinci Resolve 16 is the Cut page. This new page is an alternative edit page designed for editors who need to edit fast. It features a streamlined interface with new tools such as Intelligent Edit Modes, Dual Timelines and Source Tapes.
Check out our video below where we take you on a tour of this brand new edit page:
In my opinion, it's an excellent additional to the already excellent Davinci Resolve. Now is a great time to give Davinci Resolve a go if you're in need of a feature-rich, powerful and completely free video editing suite.
