Blackmagic Design has released a public beta of DaVinci Resolve 8.0.1 with support for Mac OS X Lion and with a new 3-way colour corrector.

The new 3-way colour corrector works in parallel with Resolve’s primary colour corrector, and features a much simpler color wheel user interface! This 3-way colour corrector supports YRGB grading, while looking very similar to the basic colour correction tools found in non-linear editing software.

“The 3-way colour corrector makes it much easer to get started using Resolve as a new user, and will allow thousands of video editors to use Resolve for their color correction using the same workflow they are familiar with. However when combined with the high quality algorithms and the creativity of YRGB, these new Resolve users will get much better results,” said Grant Petty, CEO of Blackmagic Design.

DaVinci Resolve 8 costs from US$995 (around £610).
