Full-sized traditional QWERTY editor keyboard in a premium metal design.

The DaVinci Resolve keyboards have been designed in conjunction with the cut page to make editing dramatically faster. You get physical controls that you can feel in your hands, making the experience much better than software only editing. Unlike a mouse, the machined metal search dial with soft rubber coating allows very accurate search and positioning of the timeline. It feels just like holding the timeline in your hand! Trim keys allow the search dial to be used for live trimming, which is faster because the search dial is larger and more accurate. Editing and trimming with the search dial is a whole new way to work! All of this means DaVinci Resolve is the next generation of editing!

Overview:

Made for DaVinci Resolve 16 and above, the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard from Blackmagic Design features an all-metal construction and has professional edit keys and a high-quality search wheel, allowing you to edit with both hands. For example, you can control the position within a clip with the right hand while setting in and out points and applying edits with the left. Based on feedback from professionals, it even has subtle design features such as empty space above certain keys, so they can be located by touch. It’s designed to plug into USB Type-C computer ports and works without any batteries. It can be used on a desktop or inset into a console via a flange.

Metal Design with Premium Keys

The all-metal design includes keys with a tiered profile, instead of flat keys, so it’s easy to feel your way around. The key switches are the same type used by eSports keyboards and each key is certified for over a million operations. The integrated search dial is machined from solid metal and allows for very precise transport and trimming control. There’s also a handrest with a soft feel to help reduce fatigue. Plus, the keys caps, handrest, and key switches are all available as spare parts so the keyboard can be refreshed and repaired over time.

Integrated Search Dial Control

The metal search dial features rubber coating and is designed with multiple roller bearings that allow for smooth operation. There’s an integrated electronic clutch that creates end stops when used for shuttle and position. The dial can also be spun in jog mode to allow a natural timeline scroll. The jog control allows free movement for precise positioning of the playback point. Shuttle uses the clutch, and you can rotate forward and reverse wind to move up and down the timeline. Scroll allows scrolling up and down a long edit to navigate quickly.

Fast Source Tape Allows Scrolling Clips

The innovative source button instantly creates a “source tape” of all the clips in your bin. Now you can simply scroll up and down all your media without the need to navigate thousands of clips. The clip being viewed is also highlighted in the bin in real time. Switching between the source tape and timeline is instant.

Instantly Re-Sort Bin and Source Tape

The source tape uses your bin’s sort order, so you get lots of control over how shots are organized. This gives you the flexibility to find shots by time, camera, duration, or even clip name. The moment one of the bin sort buttons is selected, the source tape will be regenerated in that bin’s sort order. Simply scroll up and down the source tape to find the shots needed. Sort by timecode to see all the bin media sorted by time, which is highly useful for content shot in time order, such as live events. You can also sort by camera, ideal for multicamera shoots where you lay down the wide shot first and then look for cutaways on other cameras. You can even sort by duration and the clip name.

Fast In and Out Points

The in and out point buttons are designed large, and a small empty space is provided above them to allow locating them by feel. That helps when doing transport control with your right hand and punching in and out points using your left hand. When you select in and out points in the DaVinci Resolve cut page, you also trim clips. Once the in and out points are set, just reach your fingers up to the edit buttons. The in and out points can also be used to contract the source tape to limit the clips included. Then you can change the source tape back to the whole bin by pressing the Escape key.

Intelligent Keyboard Edit Modes

The editing functions are located just above the in and out keys, to allow a simple movement of your fingers to activate the edit you require. Because editing with a keyboard is quite different to editing on a computer’s user interface, the editing functions have been optimized to take advantage of the speed of a keyboard. Most edits can be performed on the source clip without needing to place edit points on the timeline itself, eliminating time wasted switching between source and timeline. The edit points can automatically locate the nearest timeline edit or even match timecode. A good example is Smart Insert, which locates the nearest edit and inserts at that point.

Smart Insert

Smart Insert is similar to the traditional insert edit function; however, it’s smarter as it eliminates the need to switch to the timeline and place an in point. All you need to do is select smart insert and it will locate the nearest edit in the timeline and insert the clip in that location.

Append to End

Append to End is useful for building edits fast. Simply select an in and out point and then Append to End will add the clip to the end of the edit and increase the timeline duration. Append to End is great when adding shots to an edit from content that’s been shot in time order.

Ripple Overwrite

Ripple Overwrite is a popular edit function and it lets you replace shots extremely quickly. When applied, it will replace the clip in the timeline with the selected clip, and if the clip is a different length, it will adjust the space to accommodate the new clip and ripple the timeline duration.

Close Up

Close Up is best for creating two camera angles from one camera. Simply shoot your subject with a wide or mid shot, and then when a close-up is applied, it will create a slightly zoomed-in version of the same camera shot and place it on top of the timeline. Plus, you can also apply it to a clip in the timeline.

Place on Top

Place on Top is similar to traditional edit functions and it will place the clip on the top of the background layer that’s already in the timeline. If the timeline doesn’t have a layer above the background layer, Place on Top will add a new timeline track and then place the clip on top.

Source Overwrite

Source Overwrite is a faster alternative to multicam. It automatically matches source timecode to the source timecode of the clip in the timeline and places the clip on top. If you shoot with multiple cameras and sync timecode, you can lay other camera angles on a base wide shot layer.

Search Dial Live Trimming

With a high-quality search dial built in, you get an accurate and fast way to trim edit points. The roll buttons allow the keyboard to take control of the search dial and very precisely adjust edit trimming. You can select the trim mode with your left hand while adjusting the trim with your right. Using roll trimming is easy and is operated by pressing and holding one of the roll buttons, depending on the type of trim you need to do, while then rotating the search dial. There’s also a trim editor button on the numeric keypad that allows a direct switch to trim mode, so you can scroll up and down the edit points in a timeline to allow locating and adjusting multiple edits fast.

Roll In

Roll In is very similar to adjusting trim in on the software; however, it’s a modifier key on the keyboard. Using roll in on a transition adjusts the in point of the destination clip, while adjusting roll in on a clip adjusts its in point. All adjustments will ripple the timeline duration.

Roll Out

Roll Out is very similar to adjusting trim out on the software but it’s a modifier key on the keyboard. Using Roll Out on a transition adjusts the out point of the source clip, while adjusting roll out on a clip adjusts its out point. All adjustments will ripple the timeline duration.

Roll Transition

Roll Transition is similar to the roll edit. It works by rolling the transition between two clips and has the same effect as simultaneously adjusting the in point on the destination clip while adjusting the out point on the source clip. Roll edit does not affect timeline duration.

Roll Source

Roll Source is the same as slipping the source clip and it will move the shot up and down within the current clip’s in and out points. Roll source allows slipping the clip within the same duration so it won’t affect the overall timeline duration.

Roll Destination

Roll Destination is the same as slipping the destination clip and it will move the shot up and down within the current clip’s in and out points. Roll destination allows slipping the clip within the same duration so it won’t affect the overall timeline duration.

Roll Duration

Roll Duration is designed to allow you to change the transition length of any effect that has been applied to an edit point. When selected, adjusting the search dial will interactively adjust the duration of the transition. Because you can select the transition type, you can use roll duration to get the transition perfect.

Select and Change Transitions Instantly

Editing software is slow at adding transitions because it requires using drag and drop to place a transition, or a keyboard shortcut for only one transition type. With DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard you can press a key and add or remove a transition with a single button press. The Cut key will remove any transition on an edit point and leave it as a simple edit between the two clips. Pressing Dissolve will add a one second dissolve between the two clips, and using Roll Duration will set the desired transition length. Plus, if there is already a dissolve on the edit, then the key will be ignored. There’s also a smooth cut button to allow jump cuts to be removed at the press of a button.

Improved QWERTY Key Layout

The DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard features a revised QWERTY key layout based on feedback from professional editors. The new features in the revised layout include a viewer button to allow instant switching to full screen view. However, you still get all the traditional editing features for both the cut and edit pages in DaVinci Resolve, so the core QWERTY part of the keyboard still operates in a familiar way.

Direct Timecode Entry Keypad

When entering edit points and durations numerically, there’s a keypad specifically designed for timecode entry. The F/TC button allows switching between timecode or frames. Just press the F/TC button and the entry changes to frames. When typing longer timecode values, there’s also a double zero button so you don’t have to press the standard zero key as often. The plus and minus keys allow time values as offsets to current values rather than absolute entries. A dedicated duration entry button allows you to numerically define the duration of a clip. Numeric duration entry is one of the most used functions. For example, if you need to set a 100-frame duration on a clip, just press DUR, F/TC, and 100.

Designed for the Desktop or Inset into a Console

Although the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard has been designed with a modern aesthetic, there’s also function to the form. The subtle edge created by the mating of the top keyboard surface and the lower chassis has a pinstripe feel to the design. There are also fold-out rear feet to increase the keyboard tilt. However, the flange has a functional benefit as you can install the keyboard in a cutout of a desk or console. The keyboard will then sit almost perfectly flat on the desk surface.
