Blackmagic updates DaVinci Resolve to V.9.0.3

FREMONT, CA — Blackmagic Design ( has updated its DaVinci Resolve to V.9.0.3. It now includes a new timecode feature to add timecode to non-timecode cameras, improved CinemaDNG control palette, AAF and XML clip management, enhanced stereo 3D grading and support for XML round tripping in the new release of Final Cut Pro X version 10.0.6.
Resolve 9.0.3 is available immediately for free for existing DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Lite users.

This new version allows cameras that do not support timecode (such as DSLRs) to be used for professional shoots and still offer accurate and synced timecode for editing and conforming. By simply recording timecode from a timecode generator onto one of the cameras audio tracks, combined with the new Resolve Media Pool timecode reader feature, any camera can become integrated into professional workflows. Through the feature, Resolve is able to read the linear timecode from the audio tracks and instantly update the video timecode for those clips.

Blackmagic feels that this timecode reader feature will allow dozens of cameras to be used in high-end production workflows where previously their lack of timecode support would have limited their ability to sync audio and be used in the post production process.

The new DaVinci Resolve software update also includes the ability to display camera metadata related color temperature and tint on the CinemaDNG color palette, giving colorists more precise color correction capabilities when working with CinemaDNG files, such as from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Additionally, Resolve users now have the ability to specify clips that are located in multiple folders in the Resolve storage library when importing AAF/XML, as well as the ability to reset automatic image transform alignments while adjusting stereoscopic 3D convergence.

DaVinci Resolve 9.0.3 is the latest version of the recently introduced DaVinci Resolve 9, which includes a redesigned user interface to optimize workflow speed.
