More stability improvements, ready for your projects in the new year.
If you’re a Windows user wondering if you’d get any improvements instead of just Mac M1 users… this is for you.
Lots of fixes, so stability & features should work better across all systems.
Summary from Blackmagic Design:
Today we announced DaVinci Resolve 17.4.3 update which improves system stability when working on Windows computers with Intel GPUs. This update also supports more reliable character styling behaviour with Fusion text that makes it easier and faster to create titles and more accurately displays the blanking region as black when working with various aspect ratios.
For Fairlight, this software update adds the ability to instantly rename bounced clips in the media pool, which speeds up your audio workflow. Additionally, it not only supports more consistent crossfade behaviour when editing clips but also supports a more accurate Fairlight Accelerator monitoring experience on fixed bus projects, making it easier to mix down your projects.
There have also been further improvements to decode performance when working with ProRes files on Apple Mac models with M1 Max processors enabling you to play back, edit and grade your ProRes projects even faster.
Complete list of updates below.
As always, be sure to back up your database before updating.
