Non-linear editing system originally developed by Da Vinci Systems. Although the latest versions are fully featured for video editing it's still better known by its original capabilities in color correction and grading. Blackmagic distributes both a free and paid version of the software. The cost for the paid version of DaVinci Resolve is $299 (as of 2018).

The following Systems meet the system requirements set by DaVinci Resolve 18's developers. There are no performance standards defining how well a recommended system should perform (some developers overestimate them, others can be a bit optimistic), but I would expect those systems to handle anything easily but the most painstakingly complex tasks.
