Blackmagic Design said Stockholm-based Chimney has standardized its finishing workflow on DaVinci Resolve.

Chimney is adopting Resolve in part to make hiring easier at new locations, including a 6,000-square-foot opened in Manhattan last year, Blackmagic said. Chimney employs more than 400 in 14 offices in nine countries.

“Being freely available means more and more creatives are cutting their teeth on DaVinci Resolve who might not have done so otherwise,” said Chimney founder Henric Larsson in a prepared statement. “The more accessible the paintbrush is, the more talent our clients and we will have access to in the future.”

Resolve will be used to speed up workflow from on-set color through to post-production conform, color and delivery, Chimney said. Resolve features currently being employed at Chimney include ACES color management, IMF delivery and HDR mastering, Larsson said, adding, “the NLE tool set opens up some interesting options in the future.”
