Blackmagic Design (www.blackmagicdesign.com) has announced a major release of DaVinci Resolve 9.1, the latest update to the color correction tool.
DaVinci Resolve 9.1 enables customers to use Resolve with Apple’s Macbook Retina technology. The new version also features support in XML for FCP X Audition, a feature in FCP X that provides the ability to stack and scroll through multiple shots in a single location in a timeline, allowing Resolve users to transfer files between the systems for a highly efficient workflow.
Improvements in mixed frame rate XML integration will allow better workflows between Resolve, FCP X and Final Cut Pro 7 projects. DaVinci Resolve 9.1 also supports improvements for Avid AAF, Sony XAVC and AVC-Intra files and a number of audio and performance improvements.
The new version also includes an enhancement for the CinemaDNG file format, as used by cameras such as the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. DaVinci Resolve now includes a CinemaDNG Input Device Transform (IDT) for grading RAW images in full ACES workflows.
DaVinci Resolve 9.1 can also now be used with the DeckLink 4K Extreme, Blackmagic Design’s newest addition to the DeckLink family of PCI Express capture cards. DeckLink 4K Extreme includes all the features of the DeckLink HD Extreme 3D card, plus UltraHD 4K playback, which is four times the resolution of 1080HD video.
DaVinci Resolve 9.1 for Mac, Windows and Linux is now available for download from the Blackmagic Design website free of charge for all existing full feature DaVinci Resolve customers. A public beta is available for both Mac OS X and Windows and is free to all users.
