Designed to support Blackmagic’s new URSA Mini Pro G2 Cinema Camera, Blackmagic has also launched the 15.3 update to DaVinci Resolve. And with it comes support for Blackmagic RAWs SDK.
Here’s a brief breakdown at what DaVinci Resolve 15.3 brings to the party:
- Support for the Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro G2 camera
- Support for the latest Blackmagic RAW SDK 1.3
- Improved support for audio metadata in AAF exports including clip volume, pan data, track volume, and automation
- Improved timecode support for high frame rate EXR clips
- Improved responsiveness when using Wacom tablets on Windows
- Improved performance when selecting clips in the Edit timeline
- Improved playback behavior on the Edit page
- Improved handling of AAC audio on Windows
- General performance and stability improvements
The installation notes also reminds that the stand alone version of DaVinci Resolve 15.3 only operates on a single GPU for project mastering and output to “Ultra HD” and lower resolutions. If users need to move beyond that, and into multiple GPUs, 4K and above output, motion blur effects and HDR, as well as any other advanced features, then users are encouraged to upgrade to DaVinci Resolve 15 Studio.
It’ll also be interesting to see if this update, which comes less than six weeks out from NAB, will pave the way for an announcement for Resolve 16 hitting Beta. Meanwhile, the update for Resolve 15.3 can be downloaded at the Blackmagic Website here.
