Blackmagic Release DaVinci Resolve 16.1.1 and Blackmagic RAW 1.5.2 Updates

Blackmagic Design just released the latest update to their industry-leading colour grading/VFX/editing suite DaVinci Resolve. Fresh off the public release of DaVinci Resolve 16.1, the latest DaVinci Resolve 16.1.1 update, improves performance and addresses a few issues based on customer feedback.

The improvements in Resolve 16.1.1 revolve around improving multi-cam edits, making it easier for users to navigate multi-cam angles because it automatically loops around back to the first angle once you’ve reached the last one. In addition, replace edits now work correctly with multi-cam clips.

DaVinci Resolve 16.1.1 also addresses issues with audio gain keyframes on the edit page, improves H.264 encoding and 4K Cinema DNG performance, and makes working with AAFs that have multiple embedded audio channels more reliable.
