DaVinci Resolve 16.2.1 Available for Download

Blackmagic Design just released DaVinci Resolve 16.2.1 update. In essence, it brings new support for encoding 32-bit float audio in QuickTime clips and for trimming QuickTime audio during media management. This update also improves performance of 10-bit H.265, ProRes, DNxHR and OpenEXR clips and more.

The free DaVinci Resolve 16.2 includes all of the same high-quality processing as DaVinci Resolve 16.2 Studio and can handle unlimited resolution media files. However, it does limit project mastering and output to Ultra HD resolutions or lower. DaVinci Resolve 16.2 only supports a single processing GPU on Windows and Linux and 2 GPUs on the latest Mac Pro.

If you need features such as support for multiple GPUs, 4K output, motion blur effects, temporal and spatial noise reduction, de-interlacing, HDR tools, camera tracker, multiple Resolve FX, 3D stereoscopic tools, remote rendering, an external database server and collaboration tools that let multiple users work on the same project at the same time, please upgrade to DaVinci Resolve 16.2 Studio.
