Blackmagic hat wieder eine neue Beta-Version (mittlerweile die vierte) von DaVinci Resolve 14 freigegeben, die einige Veränderungen in sich trägt. Nicht minder interessant finden wir jedoch, dass fast zeitgleich auch eine neue Version von der aktuell stabilen Version 12.5. veröffentlicht wurde. Bei den neuen Panels kann nun die Helligkeit der Beleuchtung geregelt werden und auch die beschleunigte Wiedergabe der Timeline durch Mehrfach-Tippen auf die Kontrollbuttons wurde (ähnlich dem JKL-Eding) implementiert.
Hier die neuen Features der stabilen Version 12.5.6 im einzelnen:
Added support for decoding multi-part EXR files Added support for remembering bars vs. wheels when pressing Primaries on the panel Added support for Optimized Media for Stereoscopic 3D clips Added support for Fast Forward and Rewind by repeatedly pressing forward or reverse playback on the panel DaVinci Resolve Micro and Mini panels Added ability to adjust LCD brightness for the DaVinci Resolve Micro and Mini panels Added ability to adjust button brightness for the DaVinci Resolve Micro and Mini panels Added support for Color Boost in 3D LUT generation Addressed an issue where mattes would not be media managed correctly Addressed an issue on Linux where the DaVinci Resolve Advanced panel would sometimes fail to connect General performance and stability improvements
In der neuen Beta 4 von Version 14 sticht allem das hardwareunterstützte Decoding von H.264-Material durch Nvidia GPUs unter Windows und Linux hervor. Dazu gibt es endlich die von vielen Anwender herbeigesehnten Audio-Crossfades.
