Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 15.2.2 Update Brings Better Multi-Cam Performance

Blackmagic Design have released a new update to their popular grading/editing/VFX platform DaVinci Resolve. In Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 15.2.2 update users get to benefit from improvements in the viewer performance on Windows systems with Intel GPUs, and better multi-cam performance when using time of day timecode.

The latest update also fixes an occasional issue where clip thumbnails would sometimes show an offline frame. This update also brings new features such as more accurate position controls, properly rendered clips with alpha and cropping, improved Fairlight automation and track naming, and also provides greater stability for Fusion.
