More updates happening quickly from Blackmagic Design.
Some improvements and likely fixes for many of the reported bugs I’ve been hearing about (though I haven’t experienced any working on a Mac, for what it’s worth).
This update improves playback performance of Fusion titles and effects, adds system stability improvements when working with power windows or changing location settings and provides better VST3 plugin performance.
A Fusion performance boost is welcome, and support for the latest RED SDK is great for those working with footage from the latest RED cameras.
Complete list of updates below.
As always, be sure to back up your database before updating.
