Blackmagic Design has released a series of updates for some of its most popular products including new software for the Pocket Cinema Camera that gives it studio camera capabilities, updates for Da Vinci Resolve and updates also for Blackmagic Video Assist.

 

Blackmagic Design’s new software update for its Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K models gives the cameras added studio camera capabilities.

 

With the update, users can connect to an ATEM Mini switcher and get control of the camera parameters, lens and tally light. ATEM Mini can control up to 4 cameras via the HDMI video connection and ensure all cameras are matched for a live studio workflow.

 

Blackmagic Camera Update 6.9 is available for download now from the Blackmagic Design web site.

 

Also released is DaVinci Resolve 16.2, a new update to the edit, colour, vfx and audio post production software that includes major Fairlight updates for audio post production. The new update also includes improvements for colour correction, editing and more.

 

DaVinci Resolve 16.2 is available for download now from the Blackmagic Design web site.

 

This new version has major new updates for editing in the Fairlight audio timeline when using a mouse and keyboard. The new edit selection mode unlocks functionality previously only available via the audio editor on the full Fairlight console. In addition, the edit selection mode makes adding fades, cuts and moving clips possible with a mouse click. New scalable waveforms let users zoom in without adjusting the volume. Bouncing lets users render a clip with custom sound effects directly from the Fairlight timeline.

 

Other updates from Blackmagic include Blackmagic Video Assist 3.1 and Blackmagic RAW 1.7 which add support for Blackmagic RAW recording from Panasonic EVA1 and Canon C300 MK II cameras on the new Blackmagic Video Assist 12G models.

 

The update lets users take advantage of Blackmagic RAW workflows. Blackmagic Video Assist 3.1 also adds support for metadata entry allowing shots to be logged and tagged on set for better management of media for large productions.

 

Blackmagic Video Assist 3.1 and Blackmagic RAW 1.7 is available for download now from the Blackmagic Design web site.
