Blackmagic Design has announced a new DaVinci Resolve 12.5.4 update with support for the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar and additional Rec. 2100 and 2020 support for HDR workflows.
The update adds compatibility with the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar from Apple. The Touch Bar is a multi touch retina display strip at the top of the new MacBook Pro keyboard that provides instant access to the most common tools. While using DaVinci Resolve , the Touch Bar automatically changes to show context sensitive tools based on the task users are performing.
The update also adds new support for Rec. 2100 when using DaVinci Resolve Color Management. Rec. 2100 is a superset of Rec. 2020 that defines high dynamic range (HDR) formats such as SMPTE ST. 2084 (PQ) and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG). DaVinci Resolve 12.5.4 update also adds new sliders to control Dolby Vision analysis data. Customers using ACES workflows get new P3-D65 IDTs and ODTs, and a new Rec. 2020 ST. 2084 1000nit ODT that uses P3 colour space.
The update also adds support for Grass Valley HQ and HQX codecs on Mac, Windows and Linux, preserves super white and sub black data when working with ProRes 4:4:4:4, adds MP3 decoding on Windows, better support for CR2 files from Canon 5D Mark IV cameras, and improved EXR decode and playback performance.
The update is available for both DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Studio customers, and can be downloaded free from the Blackmagic website.
