Am 9. November hat Blackmagic die Version 17 seines beliebten Grading-/ Editing-/ Finishing-/ Compositing- und Audiopost-Programms angekündigt und zu diesem Termin die typische open Beta-Phase eingeläutet. In den letzten Wochen hat die Update-Frequenz der Beta-Versionen dann stark zugenommen, was schon auf einen baldigen Release Termin schließen ließ.
Und nun, knapp ein Vierteljahr nach der Ankündigung, steht die finale Version von DaVinci Resolve 17 zum Download bereit. D.h. ein weiteres mal eigentlich Plural, also "die finalen Versionen", denn rund um Resolve für drei Betriebssysteme in vier Versionen haben sich mittlerweile auch noch entsprechende Co-Releases gesellt, die nun ebenfalls verfügbar sind (DaVinci Resolve Project Server 17, Fusion Studio 17.0 und Fusion Connect 17).
Das Handbuch für Version 16 hatte übrigens bereits fast 3600 Seiten. Nun in einer News zu beschreiben, was bei Version 17 alles neu ist, ist schlichtweg unmöglich. Aber wer gewillt ist, sich einen Überblick zu verschaffen, für den hat Blackmagic heute gleich noch ein 350-Seiten Booklet online gestellt, das alle Neuerungen der Version 17 erklärt. Dieser New Features Guide findet sich hier. (Danke an Henry für die Meldung)
Und wer es wirklich komprimiert lesen will, findet im folgenden eine komprimierte Kurz-Zusammenfassung auf Englisch:
