(Fremont, California--February 25, 2013) Blackmagic Design would like to congratulate “Les Miserables,” “Zero Dark 30,” ”Prometheus,” “Skyfall,” “Frankenweenie,” “Searching for Sugar Man” and “Silver Linings Playbook” on their 2013 Oscar nominations, awarded by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Blackmagic Design is proud to announce that color correction for all of these films was done on DaVinci Resolve.
DaVinci Resolve was used to address a wide range of color correction and 3D grading needs presented by the films. This year's nominees also join the long list of past Oscar nominated films that used DaVinci Resolve systems, including “Avatar,” “Precious,” “Invictus,” ”Coraline,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Fighter.”
DaVinci Resolve is used by thousands of colorists worldwide. It has been used to grade more feature films, television commercials, documentaries, episodic television productions and music videos than any other color grading system.
About DaVinci Resolve
Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve is the world’s highest performance color correction solution for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux computers. DaVinci Resolve supports more real time color correction than any other system because it’s not limited by the performance of the computer it’s running on. DaVinci Resolve eliminates this performance barrier because it’s based on a cluster of high performance GPU cards, so all processing is always real time. DaVinci Resolve has the power of a true real time performance solution so handles complex color grades even when using dozens of primaries, secondaries, Power Windows™, multi point tracking, blurs, and more. DaVinci Resolve provides incredible performance in a low cost solution which can be easily upgrade by adding extra GPU’s for supercomputer power to handle 4K resolutions, stereoscopic 3D and real time grading direct from raw camera files such as Blackmagic Cinema Camera, ARRI raw, RED r3d and Sony F65 files which can be handled with ease.
