cinema5D NAB Award 2018

For this year’s cinema5D Best of Show Awards of NAB 2018, we decided to give out 5 prizes to very different products and technologies that caught our attention. The winners range from camera manufacturers over accessory makers to new codecs and workflow software. We have shot news videos about all these products, but not all of them have been published yet (the missing ones will be posted in the coming days). But let’s get started with the winner announcements.

Best of Show Award – Category: Entry-Level Cinema Camera – Blackmagic Design Cinema Pocket Camera 4K

Considering how long people have been asking and waiting for this product, the expectations for this announcement have been very high – but judging from the feedback, people seem quite happy with what’s been announced. We had a hands-on with the new camera and an exclusive pre-announcement interview with Grant Petty (watch here), and we were impressed. The build quality is great, it feels like a proper camera that fits nicely in your hand and they clearly haven’t compromised on the quality compared to the already quite sturdy (and very popular) original Pocket Camera.

    Blackmagic releases DaVinci Resolve 15 with all-new VFX and motion graphics module

    In addition to the new Pocket Cinema Camera 4K announced earlier today, Blackmagic Design also released a major update to its video production software DaVinci Resolve. According to Blackmagic, DaVinci Resolve 15 comes with “hundreds of new features and improvements” but the major addition is a new Fusion module that fully integrates visual effects and motion graphics tools into the DaVinci Resolve workflow.

    If you were wondering if Blackmagic is serious about making this a class-leading application, this update should help answer that. Already an industry favorite for color-correction, DaVinci Resolve 15 now includes four high-end video production applications in one: there’s a module for editing, a module for color correction, a module for audio production, and now, the new Fusion module for VFX and motion graphics as well.

    Previously available as a stand-alone application, Fusion—which Blackmagic Design calls the “world’s most advanced visual effects and motion graphics software”—is now built right into DaVinci Resolve 15.

    “DaVinci Resolve 15 is a huge and exciting leap forward for post production because it’s the world’s first solution to combine editing, color, audio and now visual effects into a single software application,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “We’ve listened to the incredible feedback we get from customers and have worked really hard to innovate as quickly possible. DaVinci Resolve 15 gives customers unlimited creative power to do things they’ve never been able to do before. It’s finally possible to bring teams of editors, colorists, sound engineers and VFX artists together so they can collaborate on the same project at the same time, all in the same software application!”

    According to Blackmagic, the Fusion module gives visual effects and motion graphics artists a true 3D workspace with over 250 tools for compositing, vector paint, particles, keying, rotoscoping, text → continue…
