New cut page in DaVinci Resolve 16 (running on Linux)

One of the major new features of DaVinci Resolve 16 (beta) is a new crop page designed for speed. This is an alternative editing page with a simplified interface that allows users to import, edit, trim, add transitions, titles, mix audio, and more. It also has a dual timeline for editing and trimming without zooming in or out, which is usually very slow.
The regular editing page is still available in DaVinci Resolve 16 for your continued use.
DaVinci Resolve 16 also includes deep neural network and learning functions, as well as artificial intelligence functions, including speed warped motion estimation (for retiming), super scaling (for zooming in on footage), automatic color and color matching, facial recognition, and more. For example, it can use facial recognition to automatically sort and organize clips into trash bins based on detected people.
Other new features and improvements in DaVinci Resolve 16 (beta):

  • Use the source tape to view all clips as if they were a single tape.
  • The trimming interface can view both sides of editing and trimming.
  • Smart editing mode automatically synchronizes editing and editing.
  • The timeline looks at playback speed based on clip length.
  • Built-in tools for retiming, stabilization and conversion.
  • Render directly and upload to YouTube and Vimeo.
  • Import media directly with the button.
  • Extensible interface for laptop screens.
  • Apply effects to multiple clips at the same time.
  • Cut and edit page image stabilization.
  • Re-encode only changed files for faster rendering.
  • Cross-platform GPU acceleration tool.
  • GPUs accelerate oscilloscopes with advanced technology monitoring.

For a complete list of new features, see annouce.DaVinci Resolve officially only supports CentOS / RHEL7, but it can be installed on other Linux distributions, although this is very tricky. To make it easier to install on Debian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint, there is a script that generates a DEB package, which I wrote before. On Linux, the free version of DaVinci Resolve 16 (beta) does not support H.264. H.265 video codecs and AAC audio codecs (among others) are most likely for legal reasons. You must also consider the fact that DaVinci Resolve is designed for movies and professional editing, while h264 is rarely used. You can use ffmpeg to transcode unsupported videos to other formats. This article There are some ffmpeg commands that can be used to convert the video to a format / codec supported by DaVinci Resolve.
It is said that the commercial version of DaVinci Resolve Studio supports h264 on Linux in some cases, but only for decoding. This PDF (This is for an older version of DaVinci Resolve 15.) It’s also worth noting that on Linux you need to have an Nvidia graphics card that supports CUDA 3.0 and a proprietary Nvidia driver. Have A report It started to work with AMD graphics cards, but I couldn’t try this myself because I had an Nvidia graphics card on my computer.
