Blackmagic Design Releases DaVinci Resolve 12.5.4 Update

News Image
Blackmagic Design has announced a DaVinci Resolve 12.5.4 update for its editing and colour correction software.

DaVinci Resolve 12.5.4 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 access to the most common tools the moment they are needed. While using DaVinci Resolve 12.5.4, the Touch Bar automatically changes to show context sensitive tools based on the task customers are performing. For example, on the Media page, customers can instantly add the current clip to a bin, switch between icon and list view, display clip attributes, search media and show metadata by tapping on the Touch Bar.

When editing video, the Touch Bar is context sensitive and displays commands based on whether the media pool, source viewer or timeline are selected. Customers can switch between trim modes, navigate the timeline and perform different types of edits without having to use the mouse or pull down menus. Colorists can use the Touch Bar to adjust primary sliders and color wheels, to change mid tone detail, saturation, tint and more. The Touch Bar can also be used to save or wipe gallery stills, toggle viewer modes, work with split screen mode to compare shots and even use multi-touch gestures to adjust multiple color parameters, such as printer lights, at the same time.



In addition, the latest update provides customers with 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 VisionTM 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 color space.

The update delivers 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. 



Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design, said: "DaVinci Resolve's incredible image processing makes it the world's best editing and color correction solution for next generation wide color gamut and high dynamic range workflows. This new DaVinci Resolve 12.5.4 update is so exciting because it gives customers more control and creative options for HDR than ever before. Plus, support for Apple's latest MacBook Pro Touch Bar gives customers instant access to the tools they need so they can work even faster."

DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Studio 12.5.4 update are now available for download from the Blackmagic Design website free of charge for all current DaVinci Resolve customers.
