Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Overview

The DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel from Blackmagic Design is a significant step up in functionality from the Micro or Mini panel. It consists of a main console and two auxiliary consoles, one on each side, as well as a slide-out keyboard in the center console. It enables one-touch access to virtually every control and parameter within the DaVinci Resolve software.

The center console incorporates four high-resolution, weighted trackballs and 30 soft, customizable control knobs for accessing color-correction tools in the Resolve software. The custom control knobs feature 4096 steps per rotation and push-button reset so you can achieve high-quality and precise color correction using the DaVinci Resolve system.

The Resolve control surface incorporates a slide-out keyboard that is useful when naming or renaming files, and it can be neatly tucked away when not in use. All functions are accessible via separate keys, such as the reference keys, and the fader T-bar that allows you to wipe between reference stills.

You can easily control the image sections via keys located for easy access at your natural hand positions. Lift, gamma, and gain adjustments along with RGB control are achieved via trackballs. Menus and indicators are visible via five high-resolution LCD screens that offer a view of the functions of all the knobs and buttons. Soft knobs that can precisely control parameters via single touch are provided, and no electrical contact eliminates wearing out of the knobs. Aesthetically illuminated keys are backlit using RGB color and intensity. Complete control of the project timeline or deck is offered via the jog/shuttle knob and transport controls.

Menus, Soft Keys, and Soft Knob Control
All Resolve panels have soft keys and variable control knobs within the LCD panel, which provide an accurate visual reference to the control without the risk of error.
Trackball Panel
The center panel has four trackballs, each with a surrounding control ring. The three trackballs to the left control lift, gamma, and gain when Resolve is set for primary grading. When in Log grading, they adjust lowlights, mid-tones, and highlights. The fourth trackball works similar to a mouse for moving the on-screen cursor. It can also be used to draw Power Windows, control color curve point position, and act as an offset control for the primary grade.
Keyboard
The center panel incorporates a slide-out keyboard that is useful when naming or renaming files, and it can be neatly tucked away when not in use.
Luminance
  • Y lift control: Adjust the contrast of the image in the darker areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. This adjustment allows for changing the black point without changing saturation.
  • Y gamma control: Adjust the contrast of the image in the mid-tone areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. This control helps add depth and extra vibrancy to shots.
  • Y gain: You can reduce hot spots or tweak the whites to define a look.
Contrast
  • Contrast control: Increase contrast to make the blacks darker and the whites brighter, or decrease contrast to do the opposite.
  • Pivot: Change the center of tonality about which dark and bright parts of the image are stretched or narrowed during a contrast adjustment.
  • Mid-tone detail: Affect the contrast of regions of the image with high edge detail to increase or decrease the perception of image sharpness and definition. It's often used for softening facial features, making it popular for beauty shots.
Detail
  • Color boost control: Raise the saturation in regions of the image with low saturation while leaving properly saturated areas alone. Also known as a vibrance operation, this is useful for adding color without oversaturating the image.
  • Shadow control: Selectively lighten or darken shadow detail without affecting your image's mid-tones.
  • Highlight control: Enable retrieving blown-out highlight detail in high dynamic range media by lowering this parameter. This allows you to achieve a smooth blend between the retrieved highlights and unadjusted mid-tones, for a natural-looking image.
Saturation
Increases or decreases overall image saturation; you can turn your color image into a grayscale image with this control.

  • Hue control: Rotates all hues of the image 360° around the color wheel. The default setting is 50, which retains the original distribution of hues.
  • Luminance mix control: Controls the balance between the YRGB adjustments and Y-only adjustments made using the Y channel lift, gamma, and gain controls.
T-Bar Panel
The panel features a T-bar mix/wipe control and a number of menu and function keys. You can position the T-bar panel on either side of the Trackball panel.
Transport Panel
The Transport panel features the timeline transport controls and a jog/shuttle control, as well as a numerical keypad and associated function keys. The Transport panel can be positioned on either side of the Trackball panel.

For the price of a Resolve license you get a free Speed Editor, can't ask for more. Really easy to use and very helpful once I got used to it.

Defective Hardware

I received my keyboard last December but wasn't able to use it until Resolved 17 came out. When Resolve 17 software finally released, I tried to use my new keyboard but some hardware keys weren't working. I contacted B&H since they were the seller of this product to fix this issue but they did nothing and sent me to Blackmagic where I had to pay out of pocket to send this product to get it fixed when B&H and Blackmagic sent me a defective keyboard to start with. THESE COMPANIES should do better.

Little bit of learning curve but once you get it it works very well and speeds up efficiency,

Very well made. Use it all the time.

It's built for the cut page, and that's where 80% of the buttons work. I use it mostly for assembling edits. A bonus, is that the wheel navigation is useful on all the pages so this little board gets a lot of use throughout my workflow. Also, while it's not quite as slick as the edit page, I sometimes use it to assemble edits in the cut page. I just use the mouse to select long interview clips, and use the wheel and buttons to make ins, outs and drop it in the timeline.

Works as advertised. Received with no cables and that's a downer. Some has received cables along with their speed editor.

Waiting for It Was Hard

Supper fast for the quick edit! It has eliminated the pain in my arm, shoulder and hand with long edit sessions because I hardly have to touch my mouse! It has impeccable build quality. Because of the small footprint it easily travels with my laptop allowing me to edit while mobile, even in the coffee shop. It perfect companion to DaVinci Resolve. BMD hit a grand slam with this concept and implementation! The only drawback was waiting for the order to be filled. The initial supply to B&H a few months out. Kudos to B&H for keeping me informed and patient during the waiting!

To the comment above that Resolve 17 is not yet released. That might be true as I ordered it and received dongle for Resolve 16. However, that's irrelevant, once you buy the dongle it works on all versions.
