DaVinci Resolve for iPadOS just dropped, and now the iPad is a real computer

When Apple announced the new M2 iPad Pro in October, the company also teased that popular professional video editor DaVinci Resolve is coming to iPadOS. After two months, DaVinci Resolve for iPadOS is finally available on the App Store, offering desktop-level tools for editing videos on the iPad.

DaVinci Resolve is known for offering editing tools along with advanced color correction adjustments. The software has been available for macOS, Windows, and Linux for years, and now iPad users can take advantage of it, too.

DaVinci Resolve is now available for iPad

The interface is fully adapted to the touch screen of the iPad, but at the same time it looks very familiar to people who already work with DaVinci Resolve on desktop platforms. Users can create new projects or import existing ones from DaVinci Resolve 18. There is also support for multi-user collaboration via Blackmagic Cloud.

When it comes to the features available, DaVinci Resolve on iPad offers virtually the same tools that users can find on the desktop version. This includes page clipping, source bar, quick review, sync container, and more. There are also options for adjusting the contrast, temperature, midtones, and saturation of videos, not to mention 3D trackers and HDR support.

There are also some AI-powered features, as described by the company:

DaVinci Resolve features cutting-edge AI processing that is powered by DaVinci’s Neural Engine. Tools like Magic Mask need only one swipe to identify and track people, features, and objects in a shot. You can feature characters in a lighted shot, or flip the person’s mask over and customize the background.

Intelligent frame reframing reorients shots to dramatically different aspect ratios by recognizing movement in a scene and panning within it so you can quickly create square or vertical versions for social media posting. Sound isolation allows you to easily remove unwanted loud sounds from interviews and dialogue recordings from noisy locations. AI tools generate fast and accurate results, saving you hours of time!

Not surprisingly, the app works with H.264, H.265, ProRes, and Blackmagic RAW codecs. Users can import clips from iCloud, local storage, or even an external USB-C drive. According to Blackmagic, DaVinci Resolve for iPad is also optimized to work with the Apple Pencil and multi-touch trackpads, which includes the one built into Apple’s Magic Keyboard.

Compatibility and availability

DaVinci Resolve works with any iPad model running iPadOS 16. However, the developers recommend using the app on iPad models with an M1 chip or later. Some features such as external display support and ProRes require an M1 chip or later.

The app is available for free on the App Store, though unlocking the full version of DaVinci Resolve requires a $94.99 in-app purchase.

Perhaps now we can finally say that the iPad has become a real computer — though none of Apple’s proprietary software like Final Cut is available for iPadOS.
