The company behind the popular video editing software has announced that the iPad will soon support it. The free and premium versions of DaVinci Resolve will be available for iPad users by the end of the year.

When Apple showed off the new iPad Pro earlier this week, it said support for DaVinci Resolve would be coming soon, but there was no information about pricing or features.

The official announcement gave us more info. The iPad version of DaVinci Resolve will be able to open and create the same standard project files as the desktop version, according to the design company. Users can import clips from the iPad Pro's internal storage and Photos library or external connected drives with supported file formats. Thanks to support for Blackmagic Cloud, creators will be able to work remotely.

DaVinci Resolve can provide 4x faster Ultra HD ProRes render performance on the new iPad Pro with M2 (though it doesn't mention what that performance is being compared against), and creatives with an older-gen M1 iPad Pro will also have support forHDR. Users will be able to deploy their iPad as a reference monitor by sending a clean feed graded monitor output to an apple studio display, pro display xDR or an apple AirPlay compatible display.

An upgrade to DaVinci Resolve Studio for iPad will be available as an in-app purchase from the Apple App Store in the fourth quarter of 2022. There is no word on how much the upgrade will cost or if it will be compatible with older iPad models.
