TOPIC: Anybody notice BMD have finally released a 'Console' for Resolve?

Anybody notice BMD have finally released a 'Console' for Resolve? 2 weeks ago #228716

I get the impression the people behind DaVinci Resolve development have been watching Lightworks closely for some time. First, they 'discovered' the benefits of Clip trimming, then introduced the 'Cut' page which seemed very familiar to Lightworks uses and now there's Speed Editor, a stylish Jog/Shuttle device which looks like it will engender a remarkably similar workflow to my beloved Sony BVE tape edit controllers from the 1990s.

Regular readers know I always edit in Lightworks but mostly finish in Resolve so this new dedicated device at just US$295 including a Resolve 'Studio' license looks like a bargain indeed.

Some may call the price for that bundle crazy, others an aggressive strategy of product introduction, for me it's just another sign that they consider the software to be a carrier for their hardware sales. If this strategy works, good for them, but highly destructive for those who have to live from selling competing software.

Totally.
In this release they also completely copied Multicam Bins and Live Editing.
I like Lightworks.

To understand the Cut page, one has to edit a few days with it, which I did. It's obviously intended to be used for short form with fast turn arround, but it is by no means similar to typical Lightworks workflows. I'm not sure what it is inspired by, but it shows elements known from linear editing.

"In this release they also completely copied Multicam Bins and Live Editing."

Indeed. In fact my suggestion of same on the BMD forum was immediately deleted by the Moderator. "Thou shalt not speak with forked tongue"
