Blackmagic Design has released DaVinci Resolve for Windows as a public beta. Wow are they moving fast with this. I am very excited about this development, along with the fact that Resolve is now a free app for many users working in HD. This is a seriously powerful color grading system that I have been using for several months now. More to come on that soon.
