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.

Rakesh Malik

Rakesh’s exploration into photography began with a trip to the Grand Canyon. The grandeur of the place inspired him to capture and share his experiences. Such grand places required a grand vision, so Rakesh began working with large format film cameras, which he continues to favor for his fine art stills. His love of travel and adventure have lead Rakesh to visit exotic and varied places, from cities such as Kiev and Ronda to wild places like the Serengeti, the Alaskan tundra, the Pampas of Patagonia, and even to lofty heights such as the summits of Mounts Kilimanjaro and Rainier. Lately, in spite of continuing to make captivating still images with film and digital cameras, Rakesh has been applying his photographic skills to motion pictures. While still striving to convey a story with each individual frame, he longer has the limitation of being bound to a single form to tell the story.
