Professional non-linear editing and color correction!
DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio combines professional video editing with the world’s most advanced color corrector and incredible new effects so now you can edit, color correct, add effects and deliver projects from start to finish, all in one single software tool! This massive new update features 1,000 enhancements and 250 new features that make editing faster and color better than ever before!
DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio is the same version of the software used by professional Hollywood editors and colorists on virtually all major feature films, episodic television programs and commercials! You get ultra wide dynamic range 32-bit float YRGB image processing and GPU acceleration for producing beautiful images that no other system can match.
With a huge number of new editing features, DaVinci Resolve 12.5 now has virtually every editing and trimming tool imaginable! You get context sensitive trimming, an intuitive edit overlay for quickly assembling edits and more. In addition to its professional editing features, you also get unique tools that you won't find in any other software such as the new ripple overwrite and a revolutionary new audio waveform overlay that makes finding and editing to audio cues incredibly fast!
DaVinci Resolve features an incredibly rich set of primary and secondary color correction tools, along with new HDR tools and ResolveFX. Unlike other editors, which force you to do color correction on an editing timeline, DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Studio has a dedicated interface designed for high end color work that goes far beyond any other editing system. Best of all you can switch back and forth between editing and color correction at any time with a single click!
DaVinci Resolve 12.5 introduces ResolveFX, an amazing collection of high performance GPU accelerated plug-ins such as blurs, light rays, mosaics and more! You also get more transitions, on-screen title editing, improved keyframe animation and curve editing in the timeline, new speed ramp effects and Fusion Connect, which lets you link and send shots to Fusion for visual effects!

Most Helpful Reviews
Advanced Tools at a great price! - This app is not for the faint of heart. If you are new to video editing/color correction it will be a steep learning curve. I suggest learning iMovie, Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere Pro, and then this. Blackmagic has done something amazing here. You can download a free version that has nearly every feature available, learn it, and then upgrade to this paid version when you become a full-time professional. They've done a good job over the last couple years at simplfying the interface and adding lots of editing features. My only complaints are that the settings and preference menus are overly complicated and there are many redunancies found in there. Plus Final Cut Pro X is still better at organizing your clips within the app with keyword ranges and smart collections and its magnetic timeline is a lot slicker and faster than DaVinci Resolve's. But with all of its amazing color grading tools Resolve is a great place to send your Final Cut Pro X projects for finishing.
BUYER BEWARE - NOT a the full featured version. Key features like OpenFX are not available on the App Store version of Resolve. In other words, the ability to use third party plugins is missing. Blackmagic support confirmed, indicating that development of the App Store version was different from development of their version, and the App Store version is missing some features. Their suggestion: buy their $999 version. Based on my experience and needs, most should stick to the free version. If you do need the full-featured version, take the hit and spend the extra $500.
