One of the most exciting color features of recent Resolve versions is Magic Mask.
It’s ability to — nearly instantly — select people, objects, or isolated features is a huge time-saver.
It’s the type of action that would have taken much longer to manually roto the shapes to get something accurate, or would be done imprecisely with windows. Now speed and precision are in the same tool!
