Review: DaVinci Resolve’s New Object Removal Tool

davinci resolve object removal review

Does the new object removal tool in DaVinci Resolve 16 live up to expectations, and is it anything like Adobe’s Content Aware Fill?  Lewis McGregor with PremiumBeat took at look at it (still in beta) and got mixed results.  You be the judge.

DaVinci Resolve’s New Object Removal Tool

Here’s an excerpt from the review:

The object removal tool, in premise, felt like the ultimate weapon to fix shots as in the above photo. However, I feel like you need a straightforward object with little color difference between the pixels. For example, a white plane against a blue sky, or a black bird against an orange sky. And then, if that’s all you need to replace, you could maybe use the patch replacement tool. We’re still in the Resolve 16 Beta, so I can’t be too punishing. But at the moment, it does seem like a proof of concept tool rather than a fully-fledged working asset.
