Blackmagic Design continues to improve DaVinci Resolve on a regular basis. The company has just released Resolve 17.4.4 update which adds support for Blackmagic RAW 2.3, security improvements when working with Dropbox and YouTube, smoother playback for clips with Fusion effects, and more.

Additionally, the software brings support for hardware-accelerated VP9 decodes along with the ability to encode Main10 H.265 on Apple silicon models and generate Rec.2020 Dolby Vision IMFs.

Besides the usual general performance and stability improvements, this iteration also addresses an issue referring to rippling speed changes in the edit timeline as well as fixing viewer preview when dragging a clip under the playhead.
