Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio, the full version of its professional editing and color correction software, is now available in a Mac only version in the App Store for Mac OS X for $499.
DaVinci Resolve 12 is the most successful update in the history of the software and has become the industry’s fastest growing video editor.
The software downloaded from the App Store features built in security and does not require a hardware dongle to run. That means customers that purchase DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio from the Mac App Store can run it on multiple personal Macs, like their laptop and desktop computers, simply by using their Apple ID.
This Mac only version of DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio simplifies the purchasing and installation of the software because customers only pay once and do not have to suffer from the problems and high costs of monthly licencing for other cloud based software.

In addition, the DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio licence will not expire so customers never have worry about unexpected software expiration in the middle of a project or when on location without a network.
Customers that need to switch between Mac and Windows, or that are using DaVinci Resolve in a facility that does not use Apple ID, can still purchase DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio with a hardware dongle from Blackmagic Design resellers.
DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio is a complete professional editing and color grading solution for customers working in SD, HD, Ultra HD, 4K and super high resolution 2D and 3D film projects.

DaVinci Resolve 12 also supports native display profiles on Mac OS X El Capitan, along with the option to enable 10-bit precision in the on screen viewers. That means customers using the new iMac with Retina P3 Display will be able to see more color, detail and dynamic range than ever before.
“Since it was released in September, DaVinci Resolve 12 has been downloaded by more customers than any other version of the software and has become the industry’s fastest growing video editor,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “Now, with DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio available for the first time ever on the App store, Mac customers have even more flexibility to run the software on as many computers as they own.”
