Today we released public beta 2 of DaVinci Resolve 19 which adds improvements and bug fixes for the DaVinci public beta including the ability to wipe or apply grades to clips or active node stack layers. This allows you to wipe between a still in the gallery and a timeline item to compare grades and also lets you choose between applying the grade to an individual layer or to the entire clip.

This update also adds support for the safe area overlay to be used in the edit timeline viewer as well as the ability to have the overlay display during playback in either the cut or edit viewer. That allows you to more easily review and position elements such as logos and titles so that they are always displayed without being cropped.

When using media management tools, you now have the ability to trim audio in your MOV and MP4 video files. This means you can save space by trimming unneeded flac or mp3 audio.

In addition, this update restores the ability to choose whether to update your DaVinci Resolve projects to the latest version when opening them. Now when you open an older project you will be prompted to back up the project before updating it to the latest version of the software.

This update also includes a number of bug fixes from the public beta, including addressing an issue where you couldn’t copy and paste transitions on the edit timeline, allowing compositions with alpha layers to be used on top of other clips, reinstating middle click functionality to apply compositions to Fusion clips and restoring sync functionality to the dialogue separator tool.

Today we announced Blackmagic Camera 1.3 update which adds support for audio monitoring on connected earphones. This means you can now use your existing wired or bluetooth headphones to monitor your audio when shooting.

This update also adds rack focus controls in the camera so you can change the focus of the lens during a continuous shot.

GOLDA - Official Trailer 18/03/2024


Starring Helen Mirren, Camille Cottin and Liev Schreiber

Helen Mirren brings Israel's historic Prime Minister Golda Meir to vivid life - Israel’s first and only female head of government. Golda is a ticking-clock thriller sharing the intensely dramatic events, high-stake responsibilities, and controversial decisions that Golda Meir – also known as the ‘Iron Lady of Israel’ – faced during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Her actions, in impossible circumstances, would ultimately decide the fate of millions of lives.

More magic from our wonderful sponsor.

Today we announced Blackmagic Camera 8.5.1, the formal release of Blackmagic Camera 8.5 for Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2. This update adds support for Blackmagic Cloud workflows and allows you to upload clips from the camera’s new media pool to Blackmagic Cloud and even upload directly to DaVinci Resolve projects. The new feature for simultaneous proxy recording alongside Blackmagic RAW or ProRes means you can get your footage to the newsroom or edit suite in seconds, speeding up your workflow.

In addition, this update reduces SDI output latency. This means that when using the camera’s SDI output to follow the action or to feed displays such as massive screens at live events, there is minimal delay between what is happening live and on the display.

Blackmagic Camera 8.5.1 also adds support for Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) streaming protocol for much lower latency streaming and more secure encrypted streams.

This update also has improvements for Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder and Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder G2 tally light by changing the ISO recording color from orange to yellow and allowing you to suppress preview or ISO tally in the URSA Broadcast G2's camera menu.

In addition, this update adds the ability to update and manage your camera via Ethernet, support for REST APIs for remote camera control, secure login and password support, network time protocol support, web media manager support, file transfer protocol support, selective tally color setting and SMB file sharing support.

This final release includes fixes for issues identified during beta testing, including general Blackmagic Cloud improvements, better pixel recalibration, more reliable data tethering with some Google Pixel phones, as well as improved H.265 and H.264 AV synchronization at 50, 59.94 and 60p on SDI out.

THE GREAT ESCAPER | Official Trailer 05/02/2024




In the summer of 2014, Bernard Jordan (Michael Caine) made global headlines. He had staged a “great escape” from his care home to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating their fallen comrades at the D-Day Landings 70th anniversary.

It was a story that captured the imagination of the world as Bernie embodied the defiant, “can-do” spirit of a generation that was fast disappearing. But of course, it wasn’t the whole story. It was an inspirational but sanitised retelling of one man’s need to come to terms with the lasting trauma of war.

Bernie’s adventure, spanning a mere 48 hours, also marked the culmination of his 60-year marriage to Rene (the late Glenda Jackson). The Great Escaper celebrates their enduring love, but always with an eye to the lessons we might learn from the Greatest Generation.

See two cinema greats – Michael Caine (who recently retired from acting) and the late Glenda Jackson – in their final on-screen roles.
