Blackmagic Design has released DaVinci Resolve 17.2.1 update with improved playback and start-up performance among many other improvements.
In the latest update, Resolve 17 gets better playback when working with network storage devices, especially when playing back multiple short clips on the timeline or in the media pool. In addition, editors get to enjoy improved start-up performance when using video monitoring devices or while scanning Fusion templates.
Moreover, the HDR palette will now be more responsive when using a DaVinci Resolve color control panel, meaning editors are now able to adjust different tonal ranges of images more quickly.
Audio Improvements in Resolve 17.2.1
Audio is a big part of Resolve and users now get improved audio playback when working in long timelines allowing for a more consistent, reliable playback.
Furthermore, Resolve 17.2.1 update also brings a more accurate representation of the audio waveform for normalized 32 bit audio and smoother playback with the complete range of MKV clips when working on Windows machines. This means that if you’re editing gaming media that includes MKV clips, you’ll hear cleaner audio from your timeline.
This update also includes more reliable re-linking of media when importing DRT timelines. Thus increasing the likelihood your sequences will be linked correctly when collaborating on shared projects.
DaVinci Fusion 17.2.1 Improvements and New Features
Moreover, the Resolve 17.2.1 Update also brings better performance when applying Fusion custom tools from the effects library to the composition. This means that editors and VFX artists can now apply their own tool combinations more quickly to their projects.
Fusion Studio 17.2.1 update also supports more reliable loading of Fusion template bundles that include LUT files. In addition, this update also allows users to quickly revert to the last color correction applied by improving the functionality of undoing values in the color control tool.
Other performance improvements include better responsiveness when updating or overwriting existing Fusion templates.
