Blackmagic Design recently unleashed the live version of DaVinci Resolve 15 after an extensive beta testing phase, however this has not stopped them from constantly improving their industry-favourite colour grading/VFX/and editing software. Now available as a free download, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve 15.0.1 update adds Dolby Vision certification along with fixes and improvements for dynamic project switching, subtitles, RED IPP2 gamut mapping for RED DSMC2 cameras, Fusion playback, HDR10+ and more.
In addition, Blackmagic Design have made available for download the recent test footage from DPs, who recently shot with the upcoming Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. You can see also some newly uploaded footage below.
New Features/Support in DaVinci Resolve 15.0.1:
Support for Dolby certified Dolby Vision internal CMU
Addressed an issues where:
switching databases would sometimes turn off dynamic project switching
performing a save immediately after loading a project would sometimes be slow
some UTF-8 encoded subtitles would not be correctly imported into the timeline
pasting audio clip attributes for plugins would not work correctly
applying RED IPP2 gamut mapping in DaVinci YRGB Colour Managed would show banding
Fusion clips with premultiplied alpha would not display correctly during playback
double clicking HDR10+ parameters would reset to an incorrect value
rendering to unmapped network drives would not behave correctly on Windows
switching projects while on the Fusion page would sometimes not load the user interface correctly
where tracks would sometimes show as blank when loading a project in stacked view
where disk database projects on macOS would get corrupt due to loss of power during save
BMD also posted a third test shot by DP John Brawley with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K called ‘Models Close up at Night’, which queries the camera’s ability to handle different skin tones in very low light ISO 3,200 conditions.
In addition, DP Peter Nearhos shot a short test called ‘Bugs’ with Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K using the Venus Optics Laowa 24mm probe lens for macro filmmaking to get some stunning shots of tiny creatures.
As I said above, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K original files now available for download; this way you can pop them in Resolve or your favourite NLE of choice and play around with the footage.
