In the course of editing it’s often helpful to compare one version of an edit or clip to a previous version. In DaVinci Resolve 12.5 a new comparison mode has been added to the Viewers to make it easier than ever to see if everything is lining up.
Edit Faster Than Ever
Many of the new features in Resolve 12.5 are designed to make editing faster and more intuitive. In the Timeline, for example, you are now able to have the clip selection follow the playhead, which can be a huge help when making rapid adjustments in the Inspector.
New Tracking Features
DaVinci Resolve already had one of the most powerful trackers available in any NLE and it just got better. In situations where the automatic cloud tracking has difficulty discerning the motion of a frame, you can now tell Resolve to focus on specific areas in your clip, in order to achieve the stabilization results you need.
More Powerful Power Windows
Power Windows have now been given increased functionality, which is really handy in situations where you need to perform some manual rotoscoping. One such example of this is the new ability to select multiple controls points and manipulate them as a group.
