Blackmagic Design announces DaVinci Resolve for iPad

FREMONT, CA — Blackmagic Design ( has introduced DaVinci Resolve for iPad, which the company anticipates to be available later in 2022 as a free download from the Apple App Store. Customers will be able to upgrade to DaVinci Resolve Studio for iPad using an in-app purchase.
The upcoming release is optimized for MultiTouch technology and Apple Pencil, and features support for cut and color pages, providing users with access to DaVinci’s image technology, color finishing tools and latest HDR workflows. Blackmagic Cloud support will allow creators to collaborate with multiple users around the world. 
With optimized performance for Apple Silicon, DaVinci Resolve delivers 4x faster Ultra HD ProRes render performance on the new iPad Pro with M2. HDR is also supported for customers using an 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the M1 chip. Creators can send a clean feed grading monitor output to an Apple Studio Display, Pro Display XDR or an AirPlay-compatible display. This lets customers use the external display to quickly create grades on-set or color correct clips in post production directly from their iPad.
DaVinci Resolve for iPad will open and create standard DaVinci Resolve project files, which are compatible with the desktop version of DaVinci Resolve 18. Supported file formats include H.264, H.265, Apple ProRes and Blackmagic RAW, with clips able to be imported from the iPad Pro internal storage and Photos library, or externally connected iCloud and USB-C media disks.
“DaVinci Resolve for iPad is truly a revolution for post production," explains Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design’s CEO. “Customers will have the power of Hollywood post production tools for editing and color correction literally in their hands, creating a whole new generation of creative editors and colorists. Compatibility with DaVinci Resolve 18 and Blackmagic Cloud mean that customers can collaborate on the same timeline with other editors or colorists, as well as audio engineers and VFX artists, from literally anywhere in the world. I think it will be exciting to try out the new iPad version and I can’t wait to see how our customers use it, their creativity will be mind blowing."
