Blackmagic Design Releases Major DaVinci Resolve Update

Blackmagic Design today released DaVinci Resolve 11.2 software update, which vastly improves CinemaDNG RAW image processing, round-trip workflows with Avid Media Composer 8.3 and support for DNxHR formats.

The official improvements include:

  •     CinemaDNG tone curve improvements
  •     CinemaDNG soft clip option
  •     DNxHR encode and decode support
  •     Media Composer 8.3 round-trip support
  •     AAF import now sets the timeline resolution
  •     Invalidate clip cache option in Edit and Color page
  •     Option to select RGB pixel order for DPX version 2.0
  •     Flags and markers now supported in ColorTrace
  •     Support for Red SDK 5.3
  •     General performance and stability improvements

About the update, CEO Grant Petty said, “We are extremely excited to release this update for DaVinci Resolve and Resolve Lite. The new CinemaDNG color algorithms are an incredible improvement in image processing technology. This new processing turns wide dynamic range RAW images into HD Rec. 709 in a way that retains more color detail and subtlety, making pictures look more natural and lifelike than ever before, especially when working with digital film cameras from Blackmagic Design! We think it’s an amazing innovation that extends DaVinci Resolve’s incredible image quality and helps customers get even more from their Blackmagic cameras simply by opening up their existing RAW files in this new DaVinci Resolve 11.2!”

DaVinci Resolve has been an industry standard color correction and editing tool since the early 1980s, and has been used worldwide for correction and grading in thousands of films, commercials, television productions, documentaries, music videos and corporate projects.

The 11.2 update represents the latest update to Resolve 11, and is available for download now, free of charge for all existing DaVinci Resolve customers, from the Blackmagic Design support page.
