DaVinci Resolve 9.1.5 Adds Support for Magic Lantern DNG RAW

Joe Marine writing for nofilmschool.com :

While there are some workflow solutions to get your Magic Lantern RAW files into the more video-friendly CinemaDNG format (like RAWMagic), Blackmagic has just released an update to DaVinci Resolve that gives support to the regular DNG files (both CinemaDNG and DNG use the .DNG file type). These files, created by applications like raw2dng, are slightly different than CinemaDNG, which is why they previously did not work in Resolve. With the newest 9.1.5 update, they will now drop right into the program after they’ve been converted from the .RAW format.

BlackMagic is doing an excellent job of keeping pace with the current shifting technological landscape. The Magic Lantern guys just recently cracked the Canon 5D Mark iii for RAW DNG recording (May 2013). 2 months later BM rolls out a free update to Resolve users allowing Resolve to easily ingest the footage. Resolve continues to handle more than just color grading.

Remember Resolve Lite has most (not all) of the same capabilities as the paid version. BM, in short time, will have a FREE software app capable of ingesting digital footage, transcoding if desired, editing footage, adding titles, color grading, and exporting for final output. Remember Resolve Lite is FREE! That beats Apple, Avid, Adobe, and Autodesk for many! BM's Resolve is going to be a monster app to compete with in a very short time.
