Today we will be going over everything there is to know about the brand new Magic Mask feature tab within Davinci Resolve 17! This feature is insane! You can do everything to putting text and animations behind a subject to isolating specific parts of a person for color grading & secondary corrections!
Magic Mask is an Ai power-based tool, making selection lightning fast.
This tool is great …, for example by selecting a person’s clothes in a scene, Magic Mask will automatically create a mask for the clothes, leaving out the other things in the scene like hands and face. While if we only use the face setting and it will select only the faces of the scene, leaving out the rest.
How automatically create a mask in Davinci Resolve 17?
The new auto-rotoscoping feature works on DaVinci Neural Engine and works by going to work on color grading, Magic Mask has specific controls you can set based on what you want to mask. It has a setting to quickly select an entire person or particular features such as face, legs, clothes, or arms.

What is DaVinci Neural Engine?
The new DaVinci Neural Engineuses state of the art deep neural networks and learning, along with artificial intelligence to power new features such as speed warp motion estimation for retiming, super scale for up-scaling footage, auto color and color matching, facial recognition, and more.
The DaVinci Neural Engine is entirely cross-platform and uses the latest GPU innovations for AI and deep learning to provide unparalleled performance and quality. The DaVinci Neural Engine provides simple tools to solve complex, repetitive, and time-consuming problems. For example, it enables facial recognition to automatically sort and organize clips into bins based on people in the shot.
