Hollywood's Color Corrector

DaVinci Resolve is the world's most advanced color grading system. Virtually all Hollywood movies, television commercials and episodic television programs have their "look" crafted by DaVinci Resolve. DaVinci Resolve is developed in partnership with major Hollywood studios and is the standard in color correction worldwide.

This DaVinci Resolve Lite edition includes no limits on file support, unlimited file resolutions, no limits on image quality, no limits on layers and you get unlimited color correction nodes. DaVinci Resolve Lite is extremely powerful and is only limited to UHD resolution projects, a single GPU and it excludes advanced noise reduction and 3D stereoscopic features that are all available in the full DaVinci Resolve version.
