Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor
The DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor from Blackmagic Design is designed for professional editors who need to work faster and turn around work quickly. With dedicated buttons and a high-quality jog shuttle knob, it’s much faster than a mouse. It also has Bluetooth with internal battery for connecting wirelessly, or you can connect via USB-C. That means it's more portable than a full-sized keyboard. Simply plug DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor into any computer’s USB‑C connection or use Bluetooth BLE and you are ready to go!
Search Dial Control
The DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor Keyboard allows a better quality editing experience because it creates a physical connection to the edit that’s deeper than a simple computer mouse. The search dial is a machined metal design so it has a weighted feel and can be spun fast to move up and down the timeline quickly. However the search dial is more than this because it can be used for live trimming. Simply press one of the trim buttons and the search dial will transform into a large adjustment knob for real time, precise trimming.
Hardware control panels are perfect for fast playback control! Instantly start and stop playback using the space bar style button that's positioned so it can be pressed with your thumb! The shuttle, jog and scroll buttons change the function of the search dial, so you can edit fast and accurately.
Source Tape for Scrolling Clips
Traditional edit software uses thousands of clips to organize your media, so you need to constantly click and drag clips to edit. That’s too slow for work such as TVCs, news, promos and training videos. However old tape based linear editing had the advantage of all media being played from a videotape, so you could simply fast forward and rewind to see all your shots. Now the cut page has a modern version of the videotape and it’s called the source tape. Simply push the source button and use the search dial to scroll through all your media. Plus, the current clip is highlighted live in the bin. After the edit the viewer will stay in the source tape so you can move to the next shot faster.
Fast In and Out Points
Entering in and out points is the most used function in editing, so the speed editor keyboard includes large in and out point buttons that you can easily locate by feel. That’s perfect for two handed editing where you're using your right hand for transport control and your left hand is placing in and out points and performing edits. You can simply scroll along with the search dial and place in and out points anywhere you want. Once the in and out points are set, just reach your fingers up to the edit function buttons to perform the edit. The in and out points can also be used to focus the source tape. Then you can change the source tape back to the whole bin by pressing the escape key.
Intelligent Keyboard Edit Modes
Editing with a keyboard is different to editing with a mouse, so the cut page editing functions have been upgraded to take advantage of the speed of a keyboard. The edit functions are intelligent and use the smart indicator in the timeline to work out where to insert, so most of the time you don't need to place in or out points in the timeline to do an edit! They are located just above the in and out keys, so are easy to locate by feel. Plus each time you edit, the cut page won't waste time switching over to the timeline, allowing you to stay in the source tape and visually browse, placing clips continuously.
Search Dial Live Trimming
With a large high quality search dial built into the panel, you get an extremely accurate way to trim shots. With the search dial being such a physically large control, it completely transforms how it feels to trim shots. Plus it’s much faster too. The trim buttons will change the search dial into a trim control and you simply hold the trim buttons and rotate the search dial. This means you can select various trim modes with your left hand while adjusting the trim with your right. It's extremely fast and the smart indicator in the timeline will let you know which edit you're trimming. Just move along the timeline and live trim edits.
Add and Remove Effects
Editing software can be slow at adding transitions to edits because you have to click and drag effects down into the timeline. However, with the DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor, you can just press a button to switch them on and off! It’s really fast as you can scroll down the timeline adding or removing effects! The smart indicator in the timeline will let you know which edit point will be affected, and you can move the timeline to move the edit point in focus. The cut key will remove any effect on an edit point in the timeline. Pressing dissolve adds a dissolve to the edit point using the default duration. Pressing the smooth cut button adds a smooth cut so you can eliminate jump cuts!
