Inevitably it didn't get as much attention as the new camera and panels did when they were announced last week, but in Blackmagic's live stream unveiling Grant Petty also talked briefly about Resolve for Linux.
Basically, it’s now an installable package, supported on Red Hat and CentOS 6.8 and 7.2, which makes it available for a wide variety of hardware configurations.
This is a major step away from the previous situation, where a Linux-based Resolve system was essentially a custom build that required a Resolve Advanced panel, now anyone with a little patience and a little tech savvy can build a Linux machine, install Resolve, and start editing and grading.
The free Resolve for Linux supports up to two GPUs, Resolve Studio supports up to eight.
With this release, Black Magic has made both a solid non-linear editor and a sophisticated color grading suite available for Linux, something that very few companies offer, and none at anywhere close to this price point.
Resolve and Resolve Studio are both available now for Windows, OSX, and Linux.
